While this could do with an onceover, it has prose, application and flexibility- a good, solid package as a sub. Go to Comment
7 Things About Beauty and the Beast

Moonlake's comment on 2017-04-10 02:48 AM
Must say that I was tempted to watch it when I saw the ad for it on a bus given my memory of the 91 Disney cartoon version which I enjoyed immensely. This seems to tempt me further. On the other hand, I don't remember any other characters from that movie except for the Beauty and the Beast. Go to Comment

Bought the tickets to watch b&b coming Monday, never saw Mulan cos I had outgrew cartoons by then but my best friends seems to like Mulan a lot. Go to Comment

I'm always fond of the mundane (utility items, common animals with minor magical traits etc.) with a twist so this is right up my alley so they say. Just a random thought is that potentially the something that came up on a 1-20 could in specific cases be as good to the PCs as something from a 61-70 when they are on a side quest. Go to Comment

Maybe cos I watched out for it based on Muro's mention, I caught a Melnibonean vibe too. The noteworthy individuals section stood out for me and I like it for showcasing the differences between individuals. Go to Comment
30 Mountain Encounters

Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-06 11:23 PM
While not the best, this is certainly one of your better 30s. I like the links to old subs (being a Weaver) and I also like that some of the entries tie up with each other. Go to Comment
Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-16 05:23 PM
I have to second Muro on this. Specific issues I have:
1. Like Muro, I also don't see how the scorpion problem leads everyone in Plenty to running around all day. But overall, I think I like Plenty the most just because of the greatest length devoted to it on the 3 sections that it is made up of.
2. Minor quibble but I can't really see that there is such a clear cut day time versus night time quirk in Arweni. Okay, maybe they only do sacrifices at night but that doesn't mean that outsiders are in danger of being kidnapped in day time so this day time versus night time quirk seems to me an unnecessary and arbitrary thing.

The rest are okay but they don't stand out to me except for 100 which I like.

Nice, short and sweet. Good work on your very first sub and a warm welcome to our brand new posting Strolenite, sorely lacking them these days.

7 Crazy Ones of the Stolen(Strolen) World

Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-06 08:30 PM
I like the first and very last of the 7 but I'm not sure how I feel about the 5th and 6th. Also, you mentioned that the Librarians take orders from the Keepers but I have no idea who the Keepers are. Go to Comment
Smoke Tellers of the Stolen World
Society/ Organizations  (Mystical)   (Trans World)
Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-06 07:06 PM
Overall, this is quite fresh and I especially like that the Smoke Tellers are not all alike but quite diverse in power and they still retain their own autonomy. At first I felt it a little jarring to be told that the Smoke tellers were a lot more independent than Ssssssss Issssss hoped for, which I interpreted that as being just the nature of the rifts, and that this was a mistake on the part of SI. But then I re-read the first sentence. I guess the two could go together since SI is just a quasi-deity and he could be not 100% control of how the rifts operate. Go to Comment
Seven Blades of the Serpent
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-02 08:23 PM

Question: is the first sword (the two handed sword)'s blade pincer-shaped? I can't imagine a normal two handed sword's blade (which is more or less just a straight blade that ends in a triangle, no?) being able to grab people as opposed to impale someone?

30 Hidden Weapons
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-01 10:58 PM
I found particular entries a bit on the long-winded side (especially regarding the conventional legality of certain items) but overall this is an entertaining and solid set of 30. I find the exploding mints esp. amusing for unknown reason to myself. Also, this reminds me of my 30 Unconventional weapons sub that I created half out of jest back when I first joined. Go to Comment
Castle, a supervillian
NPCs  (Campaign)   (Combative)
Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-02 05:48 PM
The way I understood it, the switching places ability is that he can physically switch places with someone else rather than possessing people. But I agree the first mention of the switching places was confusing- I thought it was a teleport ability like that movie where people can hop from place to place via a postcard (?) and there's a religious cult after these people to eliminate them cos they think such an ability is God's domain.

But yeah, this is more a super villain bio in that it concentrates on events as opposed to what most NPC subs here usually contain on motivation and personality. Go to Comment

To be honest, I like this a fair bit. I would've given it a 4 except that the bits at the end invite a lot of questions from me and leave me quite unsatisfied. But I get Cult of Done, just a pity for this particular idea. Go to Comment
7 Things about Writing Women
Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)
Moonlake's comment on 2017-02-03 12:02 AM
There's certainly a lot of truth to what you write here. Yet, to be honest, I found it hard to write female characters even though I'm a woman (I tend to have the reverse problem to what you write here about sex though in that I just can't write romance even though the story sometimes calls for it). Anyway, the blockquotes are definitely the winning traits of this article. Go to Comment

I see, the only Level 2 Weaver is scared away by Cataclysm and I'm trapped with the Strolenati v2 quest so looks like that corner of the Weavers' living quarters would continue collecting dust.

Tagging this to fav to read eventually though I'm assuming this is the one I had read in draft form. Uplifting to see a fresh Weaver sub though step-in leader aka moi hasn't done anything for a while now. You going for level 2?

  • Fascinated by Glamour: this is a dandy, bimbo or just a hoarder for jewellery and anything 'shiny'

  • Seduced by Glamour: this is someone constantly falling in love with anything 'shiny' often to their own grief

  • Offended by Glamour: this may be a spiritual purist having a disdain for those only caring about outwards appearances or this is someone now disillusioned about glamour after being seduced by it

  • Frightened by Glamour: this is most likely someone intensely insecure about receiving public attention

Update: I was originally going to fill up a complete 30 as an example but I have other more pressing projects to do and this is a wiki anyway so I figure that I will just let this loose. If no one takes up the call, I will come back to this one slowly. Go to Comment
