I luuve it. It is so simple that it's confusing. I must start giving ALL directions that aren't incredibly importent using this.

Me: "My house is a fair way down 100. On the right, you can't miss it"
Other Person: "O.o How far did you say again?" Go to Comment

This gives trolls lots of credit for understanding distances well, but it's well written and light to read. It also points out the fact that often npcs can't give info (not just that they wont). bravo. Go to Comment

This is great!
I cook like this.
"How much salt?"
"Enough."
"How long to cook?"
"Till it's done."
etc.

Well I'm still trying to work out the exact details of the religion, and haven't yet come up with a sufficiently impressive story behind it (I think the starting point for a believably realistic religion is a good story). Basically the blue monks are an order of ex-hermits who came out of the Carycian Mountains around the year 87 and who became evangelists. Their religion eventually became the main faith of the Erezi region and Calanz. Go to Comment

Hmmm...whoever transferred this over into the main site seems to have missed the fact that the original had diagrams which don't appear here. That's one reason I didn't do it myself. Go to Comment

Excelent idea! Helps give an alien perspective to time so the players don't just feel like they're playing on a past earth. Wonderful!

The graphics are great and very useful, do you have plans to add the geometry to them? I kinda followed the explination, but a picture is worth a thousand wrods. Go to Comment

Wow. I'm trying to wrap my mind around this.

In my games, I usually just use a lunar calendar.

By the way, why is it called Carycian and what's a blue monk? Go to Comment

I very much like the naming ceremony and the possible honor of having a year named in your favor. I wish I could have seen the diagrams that went along with this posting. Go to Comment

on second thought, seeing those diagrams would be kinda cool.

Hmm, do those diagrams exist anymore? It would be nice to see.

This is a great idea for modifying the calendar.

Once point - wouldn't the relatively large 5 cycle/century adjustment eventually mess up the alignment of the season names with the actual climatic effects?

A cool little post. I like the imagery you provoke with this. These creatures are background creatures that add depth to the setting and could be at the heart of some plot. Some alchemist or druid could use them to kill his enemies, just apply fyre infected wood to the wooden dwelling of your enemies and voila! Go to Comment

Expansion from the Horse Brass item: Specific Armor charms.

Cooling Touch Charm: protects horse against extreme heat, and fire, magical and mundane

Jove's Favor: tin charm shaped by a lightning bolt that protects a horse primarily from natural lightning, but also potentially from lightning based attacks. In real life, lightning kills quite a few horses and cattle a year.

Hermes' Blessing: gold charm that grants the horse magic resistance, and perhaps immunity to cantrip level magics.

Vulcan's Steed: This large iron charm in epic fashion renders the steed invulnerable to iron weapons. Such things clatter off of the animal's hide like twigs.
