I haven't seen this because of bad reviews. I did see the intro on YouTube, and found it to be quite lovely. Too bad it was wasted on a snoozer of a movie.

I guess if I want to watch Luc Besson, I'll just play my Fifth Element DVD for the millionth time. Go to Comment

A lot of these are pretty basic ideas, nothing really out of the ordinary. But the exploded oasis is a really cool idea. Go to Comment

I kind of expected a bunch of bruisers in suits and funny accents. This is a handy and creative resource. Nice job. Go to Comment

These are pretty believable. I feel like seven is a short list for something like this, though. I can imagine any number of unusual critters entrapped by a giant spider, wriggling in their silk prison. Or maybe even a symbiotic creature pinned in there, some kind of magically psychic parasite that draws creatures to the web to be consumed by the spider and the parasite. Go to Comment

Solid fantasy critter. Wouldn't want to run into a pack of these fellas.

Out of curiosity, why'd you go with "insect-like reptile" instead of regular bug? Go to Comment

Pretty good variety. Most were pretty standard, though I like the more creative ones near the end, like the Mathom boots. Go to Comment

Kind of reminds me of "The Sparrow" by Mary Doria Russell. They too use asteroids as long-voyage interstellar vessels. Go to Comment

Saucy.

I find the history of sauces interesting. As British as Worcestershire is, the story is they were trying to recreate an Indian sauce of unknown provenance. The Romans covered everything in a fermented fish sauce called garum that they borrowed from the Greeks. Medieval manors had a separate kitchen called the saucery just to make sauces, headed by a saucerer. Go to Comment

Selan, the Travellers

Dozus's comment on 2017-02-22 02:53 PM
This is a neat concept for the Trek universe. I wonder if other civilizations in the Delta Quandrant or beyond try to follow the Selan example and become distasteful to the Borg.

It's not clear in the text: are the Selan a species, or a non-species specific group? Since they purposefully make their genetics "uninteresting" to the Borg, I wonder if some might undergo genetic therapies to join with the Selan and survive the expanding Collective. Go to Comment

This is delightful. A thoroughly useable list of feebles. This could easily be set up as a table and, upon a PC acquiring a new grandiose sword, a simple roll can determine its detrimental qulaities. Go to Comment

Dozus's comment on 2016-12-11 12:22 PM
Are you familiar with "Mr. Norrell & Jonathan Strange?" Admittantly, I have only seen the BBC series, so I'm sure I'm missing critical details, but I would venture that The Raven King is a Macguffin for that story, as essential and brief he actually is.

Another handy reference guide for a common, largely unavoidable trope. Go to Comment

15. Aliens!

The item just fell from the sky one day. Everyone assumes it was from the gods, but a close examination by a person of knowledge will reveal this is clearly a work of complex handicraft from some unknown being. Perhaps a passing UFO tossed it out with the trash. Go to Comment

It is rumoured that a sort of little people living deep in the green woods have magic acorns. If they throw and hit someone with by one of these acorns the victim will experience temporary madness for a small duration of time, making the babbling victim easy to capture of kill.
