A thoroughly enjoyable read. Many of these holidays can be turned into mini quests or adventures for travellers to halfling lands, so the list is also very useable. If you could fix your numbered links ( type the full name of the submission between square brackets eg 30 Exotic Birds ), that would help with the flow.
As an external examination of these mysterious structures, this is excellent. Teds point holds as well - though it is possible to fill in the details oneself, it is always nice to have option of a ready made examination.
As for the fabrication of molten stone structures, magic would almost assuredly be needed. Getting enough fuel to melt non-trivial volumes of stone would be ruinously expensive.
Feels like Firefly if the show had been written better. I know I will take flak for this, but I was never impressed with the show, because it had potential, but squandered so much of it on being basically cowboys in space, and there were many times when the production values just lost me.
This, however, while cut from the same cloth, is much better put together. There are a few spelling errors, and a few misplaced words (prison instead of the intended person) but it is minor. Go to Comment
Love the details about the fat and social ranking, a great description overall. With sverigesson's note aside, it is a solid ethnographic description with quite a bit colorful history and essence packed in. Me likey! Go to Comment
This is truly a great write up for a culture. I would give it a 4.5 or 5, but there are numerous grammatical errors that drag it down slightly, so it gets a 4. Keep it up, and I hope to hear more about this land of Parna. Go to Comment
Its a reengineering of the laser guided bomb, (the first case) and the MIRV ICBM, which we've been using since Vietnam and 1986, respectively. I suspect this will be used in a similar manner- the main delivery vehicle handles the risk over 99 percent of the flight time, this only flies the "last mile", and as such, is generally not particularly easy to handle in the chaos and surprise of war.
Not terribly bad, all in all, it's just one more niche filled. Go to Comment
