What type of submission is this?
« on: February 09, 2015, 02:05:52 PM »
So I am designing a world for D&D 5e. I have decided to change the dwarf background and history rather severely. They are not born, there are no women and children. They are born full-grown from special birthing chamber rocks and each one is a continuation of the dwarf that contributed to the dwarf's birth.

Unfortunately I can not figure out where to put the sub when reading the various descriptions.

Society? Or Lifeforms. Definitely one of those :P

Best guesses:

Lifeforms -> Intelligent Species -> Mountains ?

Society/Organizations -> Ethnic/Cultural -> Area ?
Chosen of Aktagarti – Divine Synod Guild – Level 1
Might: 2 | Agility: 3 | Wits: 4 | Charm: 3 | Spirit: 4 | Power: 2

He is clothed in faded brown robes.
His craggy face is turned up, bathed in moonlight;
He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

Given they seem to be a distinctly different subset of dwarves you're describing, I'd go with lifeform.

I think the distinction here is where the focus of the submission is going to be. Is it primarily about the dwarves as a species, detailing their biology, their capabilities, and so on? Or is it primarily describing their culture, their history, their arts? The former would be lifeforms. The latter, society.

For experienced writers and role-players the distinction of where to put a submission is a not a difficult one.  Quite simply one must ask themselves two questions

1)   Is my Submission about Dwarves?
2)   Is any other qualifier necessary?

The answers to these questions should always be

YES
&
Hurrumph

Just place your sub in the Dwarven category, which is under the awesome tab.

Lifeforms - Intelligent - Underground or Any seems to have been the most chosen method, at least according to the things found in here: New Looks and Takes and Makeovers
