What Ramhir said! Corpses and insane people, ever-falling. Love the concept. Go to Comment

Interesting, though these very expensive traps do not make as much sense for me as they did when I was younger.. Go to Comment

The recursive portal trap is inherently different for a few reasons:
1: The portal is entirely harmless without any ammunition fired into the trap.
2: Players are not physically disabled in any way, besides arrows and bolts sticking out of their bodies.

As to it being a "Straight copy" from the game portal, the differences between a game where a player can create an endless loop of portals and an object within a game that is an endless loop of portals the player characters have no control over is pretty large. Portal did not originate the idea of one portal leading into another.

It popularized it.

A similar historical example would be the creation of calculus. (http://xkcd.com/626/)

Sure, Newton did it first, but that doesn't imply that Leibniz was working solely off Isaac's work. Go to Comment

I will have to be honest here, and say that this trap bugs me for a lot of reasons. I don't believe that it varies significantly enough from your Recursive Portal Trap submission to justify putting it into its own sub. And it also loses points from me for being a straight copy from the game Portal. You didn't add value to the basic premise, other than the 3rd portal variants, and you didn't give any justification for the existence of these portals in a fantasy setting.

I agree that it would be neat to see portals used within a dungeon, but this submission leaves me wondering how they got there in the first place. Go to Comment

As I have seen AG do on many submissions, I must now give a disclaimer: when commenting, I try my best to be as honest as possible rather than be as uncritical as possible. I never mean any offence to the author personally. In fact, I respect a lot of your work, Infested; this sub just left me feeling lukewarm on the first reading. I guess that Portal has trained me to view any pair of matched portals as virtually the same thing -- a nifty tool, but hardly worth writing up all the various combinations thereof. Hence my comment that this and the Recursive Portal Trap are really one and the same.

Still, I read through this again and tried *NOT* to view this through the lens of Portal and you know what? I kind of like it after all. I would still like some explanation for the existence of the trap in a dungeon -- I can't imagine that they would be common in a fantasy setting. Maybe there was a wizard who always wanted to skydive . . . probably met his end in his own harmless-looking trap.

I will re-vote. Go to Comment

Euu! Endlessly falling but never impacting! After awhile it would be full of corpses and insane people! A gruesome trap, if I ever saw one. Go to Comment

I have an image of a bunch of skeletons of trapped adventurers endlessly falling. They could even be animated skeletons. An epic mid-air battle!

I'm not sure what to make of this. It's not a bad idea, but the majority of the submission is just a playlist. The songs might be better suited to a forum thread, while the shield itself needs everything Echo suggested and maybe a little more. Go to Comment

*An origin story! How did it become the way it is?
*Previous users and inventive non-standard uses?
*How does the shield survive the punishment it draws to itself?

I see some merit here. However I echo EchoMirage in that it needs much more to be a full sub. I can deal with silly subs but this could be so much more.



Perhaps as Rahmir stated that it is an item of a Trickster god... perhaps a warrior/Palladin of much renown received a boon from his god in the form of a shield in which case, Loki (Enter appropriate annoying, devious and trickster type deity here.)  put a hex or curse on it to taunt and annoy people who encounter said warrior/palladin.



Perhaps it will only goad those that it knows will give the wielder the most difficult of fights. Sure, it taunts and curses at a poor drunkard in a tavern and get him riled enough to step up to fight, but what the bearer of the shield doesn't realize is that the other six patrons he is drinking with find it also offensive and annoying.



Just some thoughts. I really like this however and could go to town myself on a history/ back story for this.
