Blood bladder is interesting too, and makes me think of...what else? Four-chambered hearts? Double stomachs? Go to Comment

Ah right. When I say "four-chambered" I mean "different number of chambers, not four" haha



The double stomach came from watching animal programs last night, where the langurs of Cambodia have an extra stomach full of fancy bacteria that help them break down the cellulose of leaves. Anyway, was basically contemplating Dwarven adaptations to the underground. How about this? An fish-like organ that regulates pressure/oxygen/something.. :P

How many chambers does your heart have Muro?

Okay I will bite; the mammalian heart has four chambers. So if a dwarf has a four chambered heart, that fact alone would not distinguish it from a normal mammalian heart. So when you mentioned four-chambered heart and a double stomach I assumed you made an error with regard to the number of chambers in the heart. Thus I thought it would be funny to mock you by lamely suggesting that perhaps what ever planet you called home had two or three chambered hearts. Got it. I was wrong. It was not funny.

Now there is a new way of injuring a Dwarf. Cut his beard and watch him bleed!

I like it. Go to Comment

Sooo... Dwarven faces are like baboon butts? :D

This has got to be one of the most unique ideas I have seen, and after gaming for the last 28 years I have seen quite a bit Go to Comment

Is this written up for a particular world setting? (if so which, I want to check into it!) If not I can see this working out well in Shadow Run with a bit of tweaking, or fantasy settings with even more changes.

Nicely done, and gives a great usage example of the Flirting Dress. Go to Comment

I have been told many times that the citadel is an Rpg site, not a fiction site. And that RPG fiction should end right before or right after something really awful or dramatic happens, that way the players can pick up where the author left off, so we continue this in a forum RPG, or write me another weird item and I will try an incorporate into another thread of this narrative.

I think fiction is fine here - we have a section for it, so don't let that hold you back.

A novel use of the dress, and a good one.

A fun short that feels like it's part of something bigger, I would enjoy seeing it continued someday.

Brilliant use of the dress, although I do wonder if the ink would run and perhaps bleed through the dress, making the message visible to all as the night wore on. Go to Comment

A good, very detailed NPC, with lots of traits and bits and pieces.

Not in love with sentences continuing into blockquotes - I find the transition a little jarring.

Thanks, I rewrote the awkward sentences. Mores might be considered an anachronistic term in this context.
