Add some photographs, and National Geographic would be proud. A creature that indirectly defines the Hanaset. Great work, up to the duelling use. Do they have any natural predator, btw? Go to Comment

More something from The Royal Geographical Order than the National Geographic Society. A nice use of ecology and domestication. It adds a great deal to these tribal peoples. Go to Comment

Will do!

I'm thinking very Capbybara like (sp) for behaviour except their defences. Go to Comment

A fun sub! I like the quirky details.

Could you add more description of the original stock from which these breeds were developed? I'd be interested in seeing more information about the creatures' behavior and habitat in the wild. Go to Comment

Problematic in some regards, as noted, but still interesting. There should be a simple way to turn off the effect, for right now it seems to be a double-edged sword - the spells of both sides of a conflict would be drawn in. One option is to make it work when open, and not when the book is closed (though that might give off the effect pretty easily).

Or perhaps, if a certain part of the book (a bookmark or whatever) is held, the holder could cast spells freely. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2006-10-11 05:17 PM
An interesting concept. Overpowered item (since it sucks spells out of the air) and gives you the ability to fire them back (if you are playing DnD). A very average write up though. While I don't need a detaile origin, it might be intersting to see who claims to have created one of these firsts (Algen perhaps?). It is obvious this is not a one of a kind item. So guidelines on creation (or a difficulty expression) would be useful. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2006-10-11 05:20 PM
I think the whole snatching of spells should be a contested action, not between the inanimate book and the wizard (well, unless the wizard is casting the spell into the book for the sole purpose of making a quick scroll). It should be a contest of wills akin to a counterspell attempt between two mages. As a magic eating book, it is a bit too powerful, but give it an activation power, or require a mage to will the spell into the book, and then it gets interesting. Go to Comment

I like the idea, it could change how magic is cast. Go to Comment

Pariah's comment on 2006-10-11 09:17 PM
The way I see it, if it catches the mage off-guard, then a contest of wills shouldn't be as necessary, but if he knows somethings up, and is actively stuggling to get his spell to happen... So anyone that's actively casting during a combat would get saves from the beginning, but if you're just muttering a quick spell for some light, or to start a fire, while you're walking through a cave you wouldn't get the first couple of saves.

Agreed - these items need to be difficult to create and treated as near-artifact in level. Go to Comment

The real limiting factor is the number of pages. One they are used, they are used. Go to Comment

If common, these would wreak havok among mages. Just knowing that they exist would drive mages to take elaborate defensive measures, such as non-verbal magics that would detect or shut down such a volume. Go to Comment

PoisonAlchemist's comment on 2011-07-17 01:52 AM


I am also of the mind that there should be some sort of contest as to the spell snatching. Additionally, if it uses spells like a scroll is the page of the book consumed as well once it is re-cast? If the lesser item is fairly common I would imagine there are some good stories and fluff that this entry could have. Otherwise I really like this idea, and think the 'greater' version is where the ingenuity lies.
