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!

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...

Lousy website formatting removed all my paragraph indents, I tried replacing them with line breaks and now every line has a line break! Will update again when this is fixed down the road.... Go to Comment

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

With the right kind of players, this can be an interesting plot hook.



Though, the mechanism of wish-granting could be subtler in some instances - at time it reads like a marketplace ("What does a leg get me?"); also, I can envision it sticking longer to one wishing person who has a great dream, helping him but consuming him in the end.



Plot hooks are good.



All in all, a good sub.

Easy to use, good set-up, and cool plot hooks. I especially enjoyed picturing Magnar The Quick and his Bottled Dreams. A quality sub.
