An interesting fellow, seemingly decrepid and melancholy, but inspired by a higher source that few would expect. There is a strong emotional undertone to this piece, and I look forward to putting Stolvi into a game.
The excerpts describing the art on the ground was the part that really did it for me, BTW. Go to Comment
Most of of what I wanted to say has been already said. Another great piece Wulf! And I'm thrilled your jumping all over the Ye Olde scroll! I like your take on this one. I was very interested to see which direction one would go with a "Screever". Great take!
My only minor suggestion would be to once again use italics in lieu of bold. It becomes a weird read, when half the sub is bolded. Takes away from the aesthetic feel.
Nice job. Unique enough to make me wonder why there would even be hundreds of them, but still a great item. The entire riddle is intriguing, perhaps the riddles are a map to where Tor-Gonesh traveled when he left his people and those translating the riddle could find him for a prize or knowledge in how to make them. Perhaps even have him create one for the seeker. Go to Comment
A nice weapon, it is a great mix of utlitity, style and attitude. Three things that every good heroic roleplayer will focus on, and the history of the item is nice touch that will make owning such a weapon as PC more enjoyable. They could also become collectable items. It makes me wish my group had a focused archer. Go to Comment
The Steelbows of Senek and his line are merely the most prominent examples of these rare bows. Dozens or perhaps hundreds of others exist, whether wielded by mighty archers or rusting in the collections of decadent nobles and well fed merchants. Some of these lesser known bows may even be as well crafted as their more famous counterparts. Go to Comment
