Hi All, I rarely roleplay these days and back then I usually did computer RPGs as I rarely played P&P.

I posted two new ideas. Here they are:

"There are no scrolls in this world, but there are crystals of various sizes, colors and qualities. Every spell has a requirement on the amount and characteristics of crystals that must be held in order for the spell to be cast, crystals which would shatter should the cast be successful. Now picture a land where crystals are scarce except for high concentrations of them in specific spots throughout the land. A number of scenarios could occur, such as benign companies selling the mined valuable for cheap, a region in constant magic-intense war zone, an area of crystals in the quicksand, or an undiscovered patch next to a town..."

"A world whose lands are made up of huge terrain spheres that rotate constantly with most portion underwater. As time passes, the shape of the bodies of water change, landmarks shift inside the new border lines, and mountains tilt to different degrees. Land dwellers are gypsies that can never build anything permanent, and somewhat ironically, the only stable settlements are large structures built at sea."

Cheers,
--Tech

Hi Tech – glad you could join us
Like the ideas – both show considerable promise
The crystals could easily be developed into a whole class of useful items
The terrain spheres are a whole setting just waiting to happen
Why not write them both up for the front pages
All hail the Dragon Masters

Yeah, I didn't think of extending those into a full-fledged setting. Perhaps I can combine both... I'm going to give this some thought. Thanks for the idea!

Hallo, Tech. Be welcome.

To the idea of using crystals for magic, maybe you should see the Gemstone magic thread, that contains quite a few ideas on a similar topic.
Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.
