Posting Systems

By:

tips on posting Systems (part of the Codex Posting Advice)

Thoughts on the Category
At first, I see Systems as being quite a heterogeneous category because the different focuses within this category means that it includes submissions like magic and combat systems which are more rules as well as those on the Patheon of Gods, history of particular worlds that are a little bit different. However, I’ve since been able to conceptualise this category as hinging on an underlying concept, which solves the problem stated above.

Tips:

- The rules/laws governing the system have to be based on logic. The logic underlying a system might be different than anything weve ever encountered in the real and made up worlds that we are used to, but it has to be there.  (I know this one holds by definition of what a system is but still I think it’s the most important thing to note about a post about a system)

- The reader should be able to see the underlying concept behind the system or that it offers an alternative perspective to the norm. In other words, just describing the rules of the system is not adequate. Instead, focus on describing a concept and its boundaries.

Might want to put these in as advice requested - generally when codexies or scrolls are submitted at full subs, at the very least the author has added something. These are not ready to be main subs.

Serpens Necto is a mask made of snake skins stitched together and crudely painted in white. With this on a person can bind people to their will under the right conditions. In darkness the effect of the mask is greatly enchanced by illumination from under by a candle.
