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
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
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
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
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
A man has been committed to an asylum for schizophrenia. The doctors are convinced that he is suffering from delusions and hallucinations. The reality: His soul has been split among three bodies, each in a different dimension, and he occasionally feels and sees what his other "selves" do.
