The poetry passaged are supposed to be fragments from each song, thus the meter is slanted more towards how it would sound if sung in particular lilt or speed rather then plainly read.

(much how some real life songs sound poorly metered when read, but beautiful to the ear when sung) Go to Comment

Aye, I have musical variations as well, a couple of them in finished form, others as rough drafts some still a jumble of notes . Given I only play the violin, the couple I have compositions made for are set to various violin styles.

(Since bards play a variety of instruments I mixed up the musical instrument descriptions to make each piece more unique/fitting and realistic.)

If anyone *really* wants me to, I can post the complete lyrics for a few of the songs, although I honestly doubt more then a scant few (if any gms) would use them in their entirety. (After all, what player wants to sit for several minutes and listen to the gm recite, or attempt to sing them a song?) Go to Comment

Ah I completely overlooked the similarities in the name Valador to Valadaar and assumed you were referencing my other unintended reference.

To clarify for those too lazy to Google a quick explanation:

Slay the dragon: Slang, A euphemism for male masturbation.

Caressing the flower/double clicking the mouse: Slang, A euphemism for female masturbation.

In light of this confusion it makes Valdaar's original comment, and the lyrics as written all the more amusing, beautiful! Go to Comment

A highly useful resource.

A sound idea, and the selection and explanation of the songs comprise a good, representative range of the genre.  Like EchoMirage, though, I have a hard time figuring out how many the excerpted lyrics could possibly scan (except for a couple of the jocular lyrics, where strict scansion and meter aren't needful), and artistically they're comparatively pedestrian.  I empathize with the effort; having been a lyricist and poet for decades, it's not always easy to churn out quality lyrics on demand, but the lack keeps the sub from top marks.

This is a great resource.  There are a few spelling and grammar errors ("faced paced" instead of "fast paced", forgetting to use apostrophies with possessives), but it is so useful that I'm still giving it a 5/5.  Well done!

I agree with the others, a well-crafted sub. Thanks (5/5)

Impressive.



Even though each item is relatively short, you manage to convey a lot and make each one truly believable.

This one I had trouble posting the first time due to a "name already exists error", the original is still on the front page, no worries :)

Edit: changed the name and content of this deleted one to prevent others from being confused as well. Go to Comment

I do believe this to be inspired by the excellent Target Games RPG "Kult" unless I´m mistaken? An all-time favourite of mine. Nicely done. I would like to see more of its kind here.

Memory lane for me. I´ve had some of my best roleplaying experiences with that system, and I still draw heavily from it when in need of inspiration. Industrial splatter-horror, ice-cold cynicism and women having sex with panthers, what else could a growing lad need? :)

I´m looking forwards to seeing more of your stuff. I think we need some more creative writing around here. I even think I have a half-baked Kult novelette buried deep in my "in work" folder...

Update: Finally, after... 3 years I get the formatting fixed and this turned into a regular submission lol.

Hopefully it's been worth the wait for those liking survival horror stories. Go to Comment

Aye, back when Kult was copyright of Metropolis ltd and still on its 1st edition.

I'll see about uploading the others sometime, although they do get more graphic and disturbing with each novel. (Which, in the case of a Kult game, is usually viewed as a good thing. ;) ) Go to Comment

Excellent!

And you know, sooner or later will some wizard think about reversing the effect, turning random things back into the mist, so that its properties can be better studied and used.

Little does he notice, that such experiments could be used to cause horrible destruction, or unravel the whole of creation. Who will stop the well-meaning wizard, and his dubious associates? Go to Comment
