"The duration does not jive with it being able to survive long enough to become bleached yellow, since the caster will need to sleep sometime and that will stop concentration."

I anticipated this question. I think it depends on the system. In a point based magic system, the PC may just allocate a number of their spell points to maintaining the boat. I wanted to differentiate between actively concentrating on the ship, which was not my intention, and maintaining the ship through a focus of arcane power. How should I rephrase that? Go to Comment

All your questions revolve around system of magic and GM preference. I am not going to get into it anymore then I have.

But you did hit on thing I have wanted to improve about this post, as too spell "Maintaing" I did envision on ongoing pay out for a point system or burning one of the spell slots per day. I wanted to get at that without sounding system specific, but you are the second person to bring this up so I am failing. I changed it once as Manfred had suggested, prior to your post. What do you suggest I say about duration?

Let me start by saying
“vladimir ilyich ulyanov…V.I. F@$&ING LENIN”

Short answer: I was being sarcastic…sort of

Long-answer

At the time this was written, there was another guy posting, essentially trolling, (and I wish I still had his write up-in fact I will send him a PM maybe he gets email alerts and will get back to me) but this guy pointed out a series of events. Anyway what he wrote up was more or less as follows-
First MH responded to two comments I made (one comment I made to his scenes from a modern city-I don’t remember the other one). Then within minutes of responding to my comments on his post he made two rather angry tone comments on my post, he posted to two very negative comments on my two highest rated posts. They were old posts, not on the main page anymore, so he would have had to look them up. Anyway this third party guy, wrote a long write up about it and PMed it to me-Moonhunter and some other people.

I told the guy, his name/handle was non-contrived name (cute-huh), to stop messing with me. Because discussions about what somebody meant on a message board are generally banal. And despite the clear and convincing evidence that Moonhunter was being retaliatory or vindictive, there will be nothing gained by making a big deal about. (You have to own it Moon) Cause it was obvious this third party was just trying to stir up crap and Moonhunter and I agreed to drop it. So my comments that Moon was being vindictive was a statement to the moot nature of such vindictive gestures (whether made by Moon or by contrived name). At worst I have to ignore a vindictive post and at best, I respond to it and it makes my post better. But you are right, it is a distraction from the post I will remove it.

well the post does say flesh and bone corpses? How would you word it and what limitations would you put on it.

As for the spell working too fast, I do remember one time almost getting into a exchange about whether or not is was reasonable for somebody to move 30 ft and cast a fireball spell. Then it hit me....

Finally, I did envision this as a high level spell or expensive spell if you are using a point system. I tried to indicate that with the flavor text describing to obviously powerful individuals who out lived everyone else. So you think the sub would be stronger if I said this can only be cast by high level/power necromancers. Go to Comment

Very unusual and nicely macabre.

The duration does not jive with it being able to survive long enough to become bleached yellow, since the caster will need to sleep sometime and that will stop concentration.

Though a minor quibble - the term buffs to indicate spell protections strikes me as highly anachronistic. Gamespeak as it were. If it were in the main text, rather then an actual character's dialog, I would not have cared. Go to Comment

An interesting piece for the 1st half, toss in some line breaks on the second half and I'll gladly finish with some useful feedback and a vote :)

Wonderfully ghouslish addition to the necromancer spell listings, and finding the wreckage of this nasty ship could make for a stomach churning encounter on some remote island (especially if the creator is still lurking near by.

This I feel like I should vote on. It really is a good one. This is a solid spell. But really stop being passive aggressive. Go to Comment

Ha! Just refreshed this page and saw what you changed your previous comment to. You've got a wicked sense of humour, sir, but my hats off to you for the change. It certainly no longer distracts from the post. Go to Comment

Interesting boat.  Loved the part about how the type of boat changes based on cultural origin of the bodies.

Icky-poo! I don't like or play necromancers, but for those that do, this would be a useful spell. Sure, it needs to be updated for the magical and rule system being used, but that is true of any of the subs, which is one of the site's strengths. 



Sorry, I just don't see MoonHunter's comments as vindictive, Axlerowes. MH was just pointing things out that, in her (or his, we need a gender-neutral pronoun, since we don't know the gender of the poster!) opinion, needed to be addressed. Likewise, in her opinion, the writing was stilted. That was her opinion, I didn't really notice it, but it is all grist for the writer's mill. If a significant number complain, perhaps you should try to do something about it. Remember, the writer's goal is to suck the reader into his world, not the reader's goal to be sucked in. If it isn't working, it is the writer's responsibility to fix it. You will never be able to catch all the readers, but a good writer tries to. (End of Creative Writing teacher's rant!)



Anyway, a useful sub. 3/5

Thanks for explaining, Axlerowes. I couldn't figure out how you had been on this site so long and posted so much, and still were angry at what MH said. This makes much better sense.

I still stand by my rant, but it no longer applies to you, and never should have. I'm still new to this site, but I've seen a bunch of hurt feelings from writers that could not accept that their words were not golden and really ought to be polished some more.

I didn't know you *could* change the posts after you'd made them. Thanks for the info.

And I agree with Dossta. You do have a wicked sense of humor! Go to Comment
