+.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.

A pretty solid char. Definitely a world I'd like to learn more about. I'll have to see about getting myself a copy of the core rules for Shadowrun. Go to Comment

I like her.  Like Siren said, she's pretty standard fare, but the back-story was a well-written and enjoyable read.  The main issue I have with this piece is probably inherent in the setting, but . . . how can a pair of elves produce a human child?  That really messes with my suspension of disbelief.  Was she really switched at birth?  Adopted, but her parents didn't want to admit it later?  Some explanation there would be helpful.

Nice tree/town legend. I especially like the hook that if the emperor finds out about the tree and the history that he will do what he can to destroy it. Has great plot hook written all over it! Not sure that it will help his image though.

Purty. Well described and i have to second Dossta on the girl who died w/o wishing for revenge idea being a refreshing one.

A simple, horrific and sadly believable tale. I agree with Strolen on the imperial hook. This too is sad and believable.

Tragic.



Choosing her music above vengeance is also a nice addition.



Inspirational too, thank you Silveressa!

Overall, a solid piece. Like Dossta,  I like the tragic yet positive ending to the bard's story that gives rise to the tree.

The Dust of Ages

       By: Wulfhere

The ancient Empire of the Golden Crystal fell so long ago that little is known of them besides their legendary magical power. Supposedly, in the Golden Age of the Crystal Empire, cities were filled with enchantment, spells far beyong the ability of modern magi.

A tomb robber has returned to civilization with something never seen before: Ceramic vials of reddish dust that supposedly enhance a magician's power tremendously when the dust is sprinkled upon the floor of his workroom. The rogue selling the vials claims that they were recovered from a ruin of the Crystal Empire, but can he be believed?
