I really like the idea you and Echo have of a mans dreams tying the fog to him as he tries in vain to destroy a kingdom, threatening the entire continent on his mad rampage. It could work well as the focal point of an entire campaign if done right. Go to Comment

It's unlikely someone with half the powers of a god would even need the mist. (Unless you mean someone like Hercules, in which case it would likely depend on what he was attempting to gain, and even then the cost would likely be taken from his human half because the god part would be pretty much untouchable I would assume.)

Very clear guide on what price is paid for each type of dream.  I like Echo's idea of the mist helping an individual with a huge dream -- perhaps destruction of a whole race/kingdom, or something similarly epic.  It could follow him around, sticking to his flesh as parts of the plan fall together in stages, the man losing more and more of his sanity as time goes on.  With the mist billowing out behind him, he'd probably be heralded as a mad prophet/sage/wizard and gain a following.

Wow! I like, Silv! A moral dilemma, not a curse, powerful but neutral. I think this has a place in my campaign.

Excellent. Definitely something to make the campaign world more interesting and deadly. I can easily believe that many people would be more than willing to make such sacrifices for that one thing they just can't do without.



The plot hooks are a nice touch, as well.

I see the mark of a good submission as me immediately wanting to think of ways to use it. I see the mark of a great submission handing me the tools to do it effortlessly. Truly an exceptional idea, and well thought out.

A solid, if pretty standard 'tender, 



I feel, though, that a good solid motivator could give her stronger plot-hooks.



Does she have any quiet understandings with the local Johnsons? I imagine she probably has quite a hate-on for groups like the Humanis Policlub? (For the others, think KKK with actual other species to hate.) A soft spot for less-than-voluntary joygirls/boys, and a particular distaste for their pimps?

Just building on this - yes.

Integral to the setting is that the five primary metahuman races, Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, and Orks are all the same species, with various genetic reactions to the rise of magic in the world. While not specifically mentioned, at least not before third edition, this is not without parallel in the other species of the world - Hellhounds and werewolves re-arose from the wolf population, etc.

Also integral to the setting is the idea that there is a template of 'what you are supposed to be', built of your genetics and your personal experiences / beliefs. Your body and spirit will attempt to reach this ideal template - This is how healing works, how learning new skills and powers works, etc. It is also how Awakening after birth works. There is a possibility that she really is a just-plain-human. There is also a (smaller) possibility that she is something else, and her body and mind are just waiting for the appropriate conditions to undergo re-expression. It's not likely, mind you, but she might wake up tomorrow and start to transform, perhaps even shifting through an elf-like phase on her way to being a faerie.

Which brings to mind another plot hook - She might have heard that Megacorp X (Aztechnology springs to mind...) is abducting spike babies and their parents in an attempt to be able to force Awakenings, and want the runners to do something about it. Go to Comment

+.5 for telling me a story in a true to narrative voice

this would make a great backstory for PC as well, the emotional complexity that comes with hating you parents and then seeing them killed....awful stuff...but in a good way Go to Comment

This is cool - lots of details.

I find huge blocks of italics rather distracting - its okay for brief passages, but entire pages makes it hard to read.

Also, your headings seem a little off somehow. Maybe its because they are smaller than usual.

Otherwise, a great bartender.

@Dossta:



 



It's integral to the setting. Basically humanity was all humans until a virus, combined with the reawakening of magic across the world caused a % of humans to mutate into either Dwarves, Orcs, Trolls, or Elves.



The history of the setting goes on to mention that occasionally two parents one race will give birth to a child of a completely different race due to latent genes. (referred to as "spike babies.")



There's also a small % of people that undergo mutation during puberty from human to a different race because of the same latent genes.



I'll see about working a brief "as you know Watson" explanation into the back story for readers unfamiliar with the setting, thanks for the suggestion.
