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.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
