Posting Systems


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.


- 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.

Update: Put this out as Collaboration Requested simply because I have levelled up enough to earn enough CR spots even though content is probably long out of context.

Khor are a monsterous and violent race. Within five years of being born, they grow to about half human size and are very, very inteligent. As they get older, they get larger... unfortunately they become less intelligent. After their adolecesence (about seven years), they grow to human size and are of a low human intelligence. As they age, they grow larger, slower, and stupider. Most of them end their lives 3 to 4 meters in height. Khor have been reported upto 10 meters tall, though those elder giant Khor do little but hit anything that disturbs them.

As they age they get larger, they don't seem to ever die of natural causes.
