Okay why is part II so lowly rated when part I was well received? Go to Comment
The Blue Books: Part II
Plots  (Discovery)   (Multi-Storyline)
Ancient Gamer's comment on 2005-11-07 07:24 PM
I'd say because, while the first plot was mysterious and exciting; a puzzle to be solved on a hostile island where strange abominations roam, the second plot is basically a haphazard collection of random ideas. First they are arrested for possession of the Blue Books and are thrown in jail. Then they must escape, learn a language and MIGHT travel to a ziggurat to meet with an evil guy named Zed, who is in reality a blue dragon.

The plot is random with no red line and it is cliche ridden. I suspect that this might nave been an alright gaming session, but the focus seems to be on dungeoneering and problem solving of all kind. Such plots often end up being unrealistic even though the puzzles might be great (and having read quite a few ephe! posts, I suspect they are) Go to Comment

I think this needs to be finished - it seems incomplete.

I think what it really needs is to be subsumed into part 1 or the Blue Book. It seems rather dangling and doesn't really merit an entire submission though there is nothing inherently wrong with the ideas. Go to Comment

And, of course, as if that wasn't enough, there's the inevitable hordes of well intentioned military, mercenaries, and others, who simply will NOT understand. Go to Comment

Three words: Abdicate the throne.

Find a distant offspring or even the decendant of a bastard child of one of the former rulers that is a decent enough and wise enough to run the country as it ought to be. Find a suitable replacment. Ari doesn't HATE her country, right? She just hates her position. Then the quest becomes to find and authenticate the successor, and protect them from anyone trying to eliminate them. That could prove harder than originally thought, if the ministers hire some of the lower elements of the crime world and arrange some accidents. Go to Comment

Of course, if the third person wants to get her for a larger organization, and they want her for a special reason, this could go a lot deeper....... Go to Comment

But wouldn't the third parties offer of a prize for Ari's recovery might tip one astute member of the party off? Go to Comment

It's always fun to mix in royalty with the party, especially if one (or more) of the involved characters grow romantically attached to them, Perhaps the man in question is an old flame of the princess, but now she's fallen for the seductive ranger of the group and doesn't want to leave her side and elope with the man as she once planned to months ago?



If the princess and character are keeping their relationship secret it could create all kind of difficulties when others in the group agree to the proposed plan and try to move ahead with it.

I like the mini-plot associated with her.  I would definitely make the motivation of the enigmatic third party a little deeper than pure lust -- probably a power play by a savvy duke who wants Ari out of the way, or a plot by the bastard son of the Queen's consort, who believes that he should be entitled to rule.

And maybe the Blue Books are sentient, and like their position not at all. Go to Comment

Wow, another old school submission. I love how they where written back then. The sentence: "Contains a lot of naughty spells" made me nod my head and laugh out loud.
