I think as well some of these deserve expansion; at the same time, the 'roleplaying' components should be kept separate from the content, to make it easier to slap them on other books. 'Cause hey, we've got tons of other books already! (And I'm too lazy to create more.)
So these are more 'modifiers' of existing books than books themselves. Go to Comment
The idea behind the sub is great. Books need love. I'm not sure anyone takes them for granted in our crowd though. I think we can all agree that WE ALL LOVE BOOKS. In fact, quite a few of these exact examples have already been blurbexpanded (new word) in subs like 'Books', '30 Tomes', '30 Manuscripts', etc...
Still, I'll add a few ideas, since books are hard to resist :)
Oh and the beginning-to-end one and the Magpie guardian are eye-openers! Likey! My two cents would be to do an exact example of each example. Know what I mean? :) Like the Krullen, Magpie of the god Thfet, one. I would like to see more of those. Go to Comment
Solid submission. It has plenty of detail in all the right places, it just seems so... normal. It is exactly what the sub is called. A Seaman's Fruit, and nothing else. A fun bit of fluff and sure to be included in a seafaring game, but not much else. Go to Comment
I'm cool with non-magical fruit, but exploring some more of the social construct of the fruit would be interesting. Recipes, old wives tales, the fruit as a symbol for something (health? safe journeys?), etc. It's the little things. Go to Comment
