I like it! But try to actually include the freetext in the entry, please. Not a big deal.

Anyway, next up is Shadow. That's a broader one than robot, for sure, but I think that just means there's more places to go with it.

Interesting read (detailed but brief) for any GM looking for "realistic" medieval mercantilism/economics info.

Sagely Advice / short story about Wizards
« Last post by Moonlake on March 24, 2016, 09:44:25 PM »
I came up a seed for a short story about Wizards on Wednesday and while I think it has some promise, it has some 'structural issues' and I'm not sure about where to really take it towards in terms of ending. So I would welcome any thoughts from the Strolenati.

The essence of this story involves two characters: the female protagonist and a wizard. The basic plotline is that the two characters are trying to find each other at the same time but keep missing each other. The wizards wants to find the protagonist because he was told that she will give him something very important to him (could be his mentor/prophecy, not sure yet) and the female protagonist just wants to see this wizard for the sake of seeing him. The ending is basically that they finally found each other and what the protagonist gave the wizard is totally unexpected for both the wizard and the reader.

I have the following problems with this story:
A) I have no idea what is this unexpected sth that the protagonist gives to the wizard
B) Without even plotting out the scenes for this story, it seems to me that the whole tension in this story is the fact that the two characters keep missing each other and that's it. Since characterisation is one of my weak points, I have doubts over whether I can pull this story off even before I write it.

And now the floor's open. Let comments flood in.

Necromancer's Cult / Re: With a slow, yet deliberate and ever steady march...

The dreaded Shadow of the Eagle Hath descended into my warren and given insult to the Dead. While you and your Kine are indeed impressive in their missives you fail to realize the utmost depth in which you descend when following the path of the Dead. While you and your follow Gods of different cults the only true being of power is Death Itself. All come to His realm and therefore the Necromantic Cult shall one day inherit the world, Dwarven Cheese may stay. Cuts the smell off the acolytes failed undead attempts.

Yes this was late in coming... Shivenhusk demands much of me.
