Wulfhere's comment on 2006-09-11 12:18 PM
Hatchet came about after I read an unfortunate submission from some time ago, a cliched "Drow Assassin". It made me wonder: What would such a creature actually become in a more realistic setting? Forced to abandon everything he'd known, blinded and scorched by the glare of the sun, surrounded by an alien people that he can barely comprehend... How would he survive?

Thus Hatchet came to be, a creature that wraps his burnt and damaged skin away from the sun's glare, hides what he is, and never lets his guard down. Miserable and unable to find a place in an alien land, he falls to society's lowest rungs. Taken in by a domineering female, he finally finds a resonance with his homeland and a role he can fill.

If Hatchet were actually one of the legendary "dark elves", how would the folk of the Market Quarter know that? A creature of ancient legend dwelling among them? Who would believe it?

Is Hatchet really a "Drow"? Who knows? In all likelihood, he's just a foreigner with a disfiguring skin disease... Go to Comment

Okay, I wasn't really feeling this until I read the explanation. At first I thought it was a serviceable idea, touch of flavor to throw in, maybe a mid-level villian, but with the added fact of the drow, it has much more potential. If drow exist and are known, and he is found out, what implications will it have?  Will the authorities believe he is outcast, or think he is a spy? Will they kill him immediately or imprison him? If drow exist but are not known, what will they make of him if they discover him?

Reading through this I didn't put all the pieces together, but "drow" really pulled it all together and made it something special. I would have liked some inkling as to how he managed to 'punish' people as he does, is it connections? Psychological manipulation? Drugs? D. All of the above?

Wow. This is... wow. I like the idea of spirits creating witnesses to prove that they've been doing their job. I also like how it's got the knowledge of the ages... but few would know to ask for it and fewer still would recieve it. Not just another "I know all, I remember all." Kudos. Go to Comment

I really like this one. A necromancer would really like this tree - but it sound like he would have to hide his intentions. Go to Comment
