[Scrasamax] 1:34 pm: how about this...the Chthonian Hegemony?
[Dozus] 1:34 pm: Hegemony is a good word.
[Murometz] 1:34 pm: ?
[Mourngrymn] 1:34 pm: for what?
[Murometz] 1:35 pm: for a sub
[Murometz] 1:35 pm: go cave go!
[Scrasamax] 1:35 pm: a whole ancient civilization ala Atlantis, but its hallmark are complicated
and seemingly timeless clockwork constructs that use elaborate keys, sliding doors, and all sorts
of moving machinery based off of gravity movement
[Scrasamax] 1:36 pm: and Old Skool rocks!
[Mourngrymn] 1:36 pm: to sci tech for me but sounds cool.
[Dozus] 1:36 pm: I'm hooked already.
[Mourngrymn] 1:36 pm:
[Murometz] 1:36 pm: wow
[Mourngrymn] 1:37 pm: Chthonian brings to much Chthulhu to mind.
[Murometz] 1:37 pm: I actually agre with that...any chance of a different word preceeding
[Dozus] 1:37 pm: That Lovecraft and his consonant clusters.
[Mourngrymn] 1:37 pm: which isnt bad, but scoops up 1d10 investigators stil lscare me in my
[Murometz] 1:37 pm: its too common a "cool" word
[Scrasamax] 1:37 pm: put the Chthonian key in the lock, and without a sound, a cave wall splits
into four sections, each sliding back into a casement in the wall, revealing a long corridor leading
down into the bowels of the Chthonian cache
[Ancient Gamer] 1:38 pm: Chthonians are very Cthulhu
[Scrasamax] 1:38 pm: chthonic meaning underground
[Mourngrymn] 1:38 pm: perhaps it can be tied into that mythos... but I think it hits to close to COC
[Murometz] 1:38 pm: thats sounds cool..except all the Chthon
[Mourngrymn] 1:38 pm: dark, mysterious, and unknown
[Mourngrymn] 1:39 pm: I need a Starbucks... anyone want any?
[Dozus] 1:39 pm: I'm good, thanks.
[Ancient Gamer] 1:39 pm: Yeah, fax it to me
[Dozus] 1:39 pm: I love a good clockwork.
[Scrasamax] 1:39 pm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chthonic
[Murometz] 1:40 pm: gimme a mocha-choco-screw-that-$5-coffee..oh and in Grande please
[Scrasamax] 1:40 pm: i'll take a vente frappaccino mocha
[Murometz] 1:40 pm: familair with term...just doesnt have a great sound to it
[Dozus] 1:40 pm: Do it with a K, Scras.
[Scrasamax] 1:41 pm: Khthonios Hegemony...
[Murometz] 1:41 pm: ooohh better...greek/byzantine vibe
[Dozus] 1:41 pm: Or modify it slightly. K'thonios.
[Ancient Gamer] 1:41 pm: Mmm, works. Some people will connect it to lovecraft, but it works
[Murometz] 1:42 pm: I like Khthonios..it gives you that Chthulu/Chthonic definition feel, but sounds
like it could be a name of an actual greek guy at the same time...nice
[Scrasamax] 1:44 pm: K'tonian Hegemony
[Scrasamax] 1:44 pm: named from the discovered K'ton Ruins near City X
[Dozus] 1:45 pm: Exellent.
[Murometz] 1:45 pm: works for me
[Scrasamax] 1:46 pm: so, these K'tonians were artificers, though they did not use magic in said
constructs, everything works ala Leonardo DaVinci mechanisms
[Murometz] 1:46 pm: K'ton....thats my favorite of the lot...nice dull but hard sound...sounds grim
[Scrasamax] 1:46 pm: and were made exceptionally durable
[Scrasamax] 1:47 pm: dull, hard, grim, weird...i like these adjectives for the K'ton
[Murometz] 1:49 pm: wow...could I throw the Quockerwodger in there? or more specifically can I
say that the clock-work creature came from K'ton?
[Scrasamax] 1:49 pm: sure
[Murometz] 1:50 pm: cool...tehres some more lines of background completed
[Scrasamax] 1:50 pm: it might have been recovered from there, or might have been built following
[Murometz] 1:50 pm: wow...I'm intrigued now
[Murometz] 1:51 pm: wow!! following K'tonian plans! yes yes!! they found some ancient
manuscripts....instructions...directions...Oh Gods! what they unwittingly unleashed!
[Ancient Gamer] 1:51 pm: Tatah Gentlemen
[The Citadel]: Ancient Gamer has left at 1:51 pm
[Mourngrymn] 1:51 pm: tell me more... please.... please... d**nit starbucks is calling.
[Murometz] 1:51 pm: bye Ed
[Scrasamax] 1:52 pm: So there are no surface ruins of K'tonia, all that is left is underground, which
means A. K'tonia is really really old or B. they were subterranean to begin with
[Murometz] 1:52 pm: wow, wow, wow...I have a tie in sub for your K'ton brewing, with the small
gthic clock-tower city of Nimz, home of the Quockerwodger
[Murometz] 1:52 pm: sorry...go on
[Scrasamax] 1:53 pm: Nimz could be a hub for K'tonian research, and could be built following
diagrams of K'tonian cities, with large towers
[Murometz] 1:53 pm: underground underground!
[Scrasamax] 1:53 pm: K'tonians would have had elevators
[Scrasamax] 1:54 pm: so they are subterranean
[Scrasamax] 1:54 pm: the surface being perhaps too hostile with orcs and rampaging dragons, or
some other long term problem like violent storms, ice ages, or sometihng like that
[Mourngrymn] 1:55 pm: elevators... since it is underground have it work with an exaust system...
like air controlled lifts by natural air.
[Murometz] 1:55 pm: nice...GM: " ok rolling now for wandering monsters in elevators...oh and
which floor Thunderfoot?"....unique!
[Murometz] 1:55 pm: wow..Mourn getting all technical..nice
[Scrasamax] 1:56 pm: ground work for LOTS of mechanical traps
[Mourngrymn] 1:56 pm: that sound techincal enough?
[Scrasamax] 1:56 pm: but not much in the way of monster encounters
[Mourngrymn] 1:56 pm: underground or under water?
[Dozus] 1:57 pm: I'm gonna go do dishes. But I like the K'ton Hegemony already.
[Murometz] 1:57 pm: me too (like it, NOT going to do dishes)
[Scrasamax] 1:57 pm: underground
[Mourngrymn] 1:57 pm: underwater you could have some strange etherial underwater creatures...
that can phase in and out...
[Mourngrymn] 1:57 pm: oh... ok wel lscratch that.
[Dozus] 1:57 pm: Til later, gents.
[Murometz] 1:57 pm: slow down Aqualung
[Scrasamax] 1:57 pm: brb gents
[Mourngrymn] 1:57 pm: Bye D
