Definitely a game I need to try out for myself, but a solid and wonderful sub. I like the descriptions of how dwarves of different ages/eras view the game. Great work! Go to Comment

Neat! I would certainly try this out. Good to see you're play-testing it for functionality.

Instead of paint, I'm picturing a very dwarfy board made from the actual stones the colors represent. Go to Comment

I am also very tempted to try this out with my boys! :-)

Great one axle! Although the game itself is simple, I'm sure that making up such a game from scratch, is less simple. It actually seems playable, and the background makes it come alive. The "corrupting influence", and "played in hospices"and so on are really nice touches.

Update: Funny you should HoH this today cause we play finally play tested this at board game gathering using risk pieces as stones and a board drawn on a wet erase grid map. It was ok, but after just one game we decided to add mining. Mining keeps a player from being isolated early in the game. We also found that it does not matter much if players start with 6 types of each stones or just a random 18 stone. The key to the game is table talk and horse trading. Go to Comment

One of the coolest mini-games I have ever seen. Definitely eager to try this out one day, and I would love to spring this on my players as part of a dwarven adventure. Go to Comment

A nice, simple game. But though I think that humans, elves, and so on would play more than dwarves (and possibly simply call the forges red, green, and so on), its a good sub. 4/5 Go to Comment

Of note is the careful distinction between 'feelings' and 'emotions'. This is the former, not the latter. Took me a moment to catch that.

This is an interesting idea, but it's real hard to explore in 100 words. I like the format for some things, but this idea seems too complex for such a short sub. Go to Comment

I think some type of plot arising from such an event, rather than a definition would have been better. Go to Comment

Interesting, but difficult to really do anything with on its own. Compared to the Bucky Batteries that brimmed with possible applicaitons and uses in a sci fi game, this one feels a little open and shut.



A good GM can use this as the explaination behind sudden emergence of AI in an characters computer/ship/etc.. or it could work well as the spring board to an Ai related sub plot, but over all it's application feels somewhat limited in scope.



Well written though, it can be tough to deliver something in only 100 words that feels complete.

In fewer words: paranormal bildungsroman, which would be a logical extension of the literary genre. Romance has a similar vein of Paranormal Romance. If Bella from Twilight was In her mid 30s instead of teens it would a much different genre even if the story shared most of the same elements. Go to Comment
