These are rather whimsical, charming little beings as the others have described, but I do have a question. You mentioned that they project feelings of happiness in order to ''To save themselves from inter-faerie strife'', but what do you mean by that exactly? It's a bit vague. Thank. Go to Comment
Cheka raised a good point. After absorbing countless recordings of mundane discoveries, you'd expect the pages within the book to get so numerous as to make the book a cumbersome and heavy affair. Will that be the case evantually? Go to Comment
Repellent to the eyes, sinister in appearance and far from welcome to the average villager and yet the bards are obssessed with it. Is there any explanation for this? I'm just curious. Thanks. Go to Comment
That's true, now that you mention it. I guess that as long as he has the good sense to stay away from the transcendants, he would have a very fulfilling career as the personal chef of some noble who would allow him to butcher and cook pretty much anything he wanted. And on the subject of Rephatia, have I ever mentioned that it's easily the most disturbing fictional culture that I've ever had the pleasure of reading about? Go to Comment
Val, I imagine that Jimmy would be thrilled to find himself in the country of the Rephatians where there would be so many different varities of humanoids for him to cook and feast on. However, if he allowed temptation to get the better of him and tried to murder and eat a member of the soldier or elite caste, I have no doubt that he would meet with a swift and savage end.

It's not a bad sub, actually. And considering that it is derived from Cheka's own world of Acqua which incorporates certain modern elements, he can call it pretty much whatever he thinks is suitable as long as it has some basis in Acqua. Nothing wrong with the explantion either. It's supposed to stop under-cover agents from exposing their true identities or turning traitor. Sounds pretty straight forward to me. Go to Comment
This is quite succintly written and I like the sardonic, wry sense of humour that pervades the story. But is there some hidden reason as to why Thorne's spells keep causing damage that he has no intention of inflicting? Surely a competant mage like him would able to prevent such disasters.

I must agree with Muro. The idea of a gigantic, sun-phobic humanoid race that practiced mysterious rituals and underwent bizzare phsyical transformations within the confines of cacoons, really adds to the overall atmopshere of the city of the brooding bizzare city of Stoneholt. As your narative seems to imply, do feral bands of Caretakers indeed guard these places against inturders? Go to Comment
Exceptionally well written, although as Val pointed out there are a couple of weaker entries among this particular collection of weres. Nevertheless, it is still overwhelmingly an amazing collection of critters and for this reason deserves a HOH. By far and large, I have to say that the Were-Scorpion and Were-Jackal are my favourites. Go to Comment
Creepy and sinister. But visiting the dolmens is a good way for those weary of life to kill themselves, I guess. Do ordinary folk, those not suffering from mental illness, regard these dolmens as a place of evil? Go to Comment
If its powered by a battery, how long can it operate before it needs to be recharged?
Apart from that question, this seems to be a neat enough sub. Its logical and useful, ready to be used by anyone planning to abduct someone. Would the cult sell one of these devices to criminal elements? Go to Comment
This is actually quite a potent but deadly item. The fact that if your fear stops, you might very well end up dying at the hands of your enemies, makes it a rather sinister item. Was the slippery effect over a wider radius than normal when the wearer is afraid, an intentional or accidental effect? Go to Comment
There is a group that believes no good can come of trying to change to future to render a prophecy or prediction incorrect. They believe that meddling will either cause the prediction to be true in the first place, or make something worse or more extreme happen.
