Classic! There is a moral here - I know it. Now to find it. Where is that bloody slab?

Given how mad I get when I lose something, this would drive me mad far sooner then poor Fulminus! Go to Comment

Don't you hate it when you spend what seems like forever looking for something, and it turns out it was where you left it all along? Go to Comment

My only comments would be some general advice. I recommend specifying what type of stone the tablets are made of to give the submission more flavor. Also, aside from replenishing water, it may be useful to explain why ship's would put in to this island, and how often they do so (for instance, the island could be on the the path of a major trade route).

Well, it was not precisely written that it was Death, only a spirit that came to claim them... so maybe it was something else. :)


Oh, and I like the group! Go to Comment

Nicely done. I like the fact that they were given more time to play their music, until the music didn't make them happy any more. This actually fits nicely with a particular world outlook I favor; music has power. Sometimes a lot of power, if the players are good enough. Go to Comment

Poignant and sad in it's own way. Mysteries are what keep people coming back for more, no exploded diagrams and point by point dissections. Go to Comment

So they live because they made Death happy with their music? Go to Comment

Nicely done Wulf! An evocative tale, and an interesting group of performers. The song brings back quite a few bar jukebox memories for me too!


Another "yes" vote, on keeping mysteries, mysteries btw. Go to Comment

My original idea was that the man was Death himself, but Death isn't the only mysterious figure out there with the power to tinker with mens' fates...

Perhaps it would be best to keep it a mystery, for there are some questions it is unwise for mortals to ask. Go to Comment

Wow. A mass of details that's still usable. Great work.

The only thing that remains to be asked, is what happened of Thackrose and Thane. Go to Comment

Nicely done with some good details and a few dramatic hooks. I added it to the neighborhood codex. Go to Comment

I like it, a walk-through of a pseudo-Italian city-state's most famous road. The only thing I would add was that in old times stone was recycled. While the new buildings were being built at one end of the boulevard, the imposing citadel at the other end would likely be dismantled to provide stone for the other constructions. The new road might very well have been made from what was once curtain walls, and the other heavy stonework of teh old keep could have been reused in it's old role, a flying buttress being used in a new palace instead of a dungeon, but now it's exterior clad in handsome marble. Other uses would be cutting the stone into smaller pieces and using it to build the walls and foundations of the new buildings. This stone, likely originally chosen for strength and durabilty would be hidden under facades of more attractive stone mortared into place over it.

To keep the conflict at the end, the final problem of the keep could be the foundations of the edifice, perhaps itself built atop an older fortress, which was built atop an even older one, or some other problem that kept the base of the structure from being quickly and easily reused. Go to Comment
