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.

Indeed, I imagine beard veins with selective filters that could store CO2 saturated hemoglobin or recycle CO bonded RBCs. I also thought a exterior lung tissue surrounded by protective beard hair would be better for breathing in areas with lots of particulates that could damage lung tissue but would be filtered by the beard hair. Of course the chin gills would be less efficient than the lungs but it might make the difference in pinch.



I have a whole rant on this is my unfinished sequel to "A Dwarf on the Water". The new piece was to follow my nascent dwarven philosopher/teamster Gorn as he got on the wrong side of the God of fear. It was titled "Dwen and the Art of Wagon Maintenance", but as it turns out I just don't know enough about wagons.

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

Moonlake's comment on 2015-03-13 01:54 AM
Firstly, I have to admit that I read this a bit ad-hoc with breaks in between and I don't know whether this skewed my score. I like how this story ends and yet it seems a little abrupt for me. What I meant by this was that I got too carried away for the Viking/pirate feel of Akribus throughout the story and I wasn't quite prepared when he turned freedom fighter at the end for the sake of his son and all those lore of the Sun and Moon (I like lore usually but here there's something about all those lore that feels a little off to me for unknown reason although rationally I don't have argument with them since they are part of the lore for the sword) Go to Comment

This is neat. I had to read it all the way to grasp everything though. The exact mechanic she used to kill should have been presented when Kaiser bought it, rather then it being a 'reveal' further below.

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
