Once again it my be my bias to well named background names, but I love it. It has great writing too. Go to Comment
Sir Edmund Verney
NPCs  (Scenario Based)   (Criminal/Espionage)
Roack's comment on 2006-02-15 09:19 PM
It's good, you' never suspect such an innocent-looking man of crime connections, it's a nice twist, it just doesn't have much of an exotic flare to it. Go to Comment
Vephelot's Milk
Items  (Potion)   (Villanous)
Roack's comment on 2006-02-14 12:42 AM
I like it, though the overcomplication does irritate me a bit. I think you should write up Vephelot though, he (she?) sounds interesting. Go to Comment
Vephelot's Milk
Items  (Potion)   (Villanous)
Roack's comment on 2006-02-15 10:07 PM
The overcomplication of obtaining the milk and assasinating an unborn ruler with it, why not just use normal poison on the queen, taking both her and her child out in one fell swoop? Go to Comment
Qacha's Neck
Locations  (City)   (Plains)
Roack's comment on 2006-02-15 12:23 AM
I like it, It's a queer little town that I wouldn't mind using. It only has two flaws that I can see, the lack of description on the religion (which can be remedied by another article if you want to type it up) and the sheer size of the thing, otherwise I'm glad such a great poster has joind us.

Kazi Weapons
Items  (Equipment Listing)   (Non-Magical)
Roack's comment on 2016-11-16 05:52 PM
Names in constructed languages: Check
Things made out of animal parts: Check
References to a wider universe: Check
Detailed cultural integration: Check

This pushes a lot of really good buttons for me. Other than a few grammatical errors which don't seriously effect readability, it's all around solid. I would love to see more weapons, personally, but these two and their uses are quite detailed. Go to Comment

I like it, very original, though I'd love it if the water of Syalkkothes was explored in greater detail. Go to Comment
The Sword of Fire
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Roack's comment on 2006-01-07 08:29 AM
"definitely not a candidate." Well I wish I'd thought of it. The one problem I have is with the burning system, though thats because it ever so slightly reminds me of stats. It is of course, easily adjusted, removed, or interpreted differently, so it's not a real problem. 5/5! Go to Comment
Bahara'hara'raha
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)
Roack's comment on 2006-02-14 12:30 AM
When seperated from the flock and certain nerves are pinched a Bahara'hara'raha will become nearly comatose. Also, as mentioned, they don't think to look up, and considering Ylfharn hunters attack from above.... Go to Comment
Order of the Vigilant

Roack's comment on 2006-01-07 08:07 AM
I have a good reason for you Strolen: Fear. People hate and fear what they don't understand, and chances are they understand little, if anything, about the Dreamers.

Solid post, good writing, great Idea. No score possible but a 5/5. Go to Comment

Wow, I like it, It's a little creepy now, too. Still feels like it's missing a bit of something, but I like it. Go to Comment

Perhaps, though I'll leave it in there as a portmanteau. Thank you, Captain. Go to Comment

I think I'm going to create a scroll called "How many things involving Arebek can Muro think of?" Go to Comment

I'm a little late in asking this, but I'd really like to know those reasons. I think I bastardized the name from Hittite mythology. Go to Comment
Egoyo
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Mountains)
Roack's comment on 2007-03-31 05:16 PM
Perhaps, I've never been a big fan of gnomes myself. The Egoyo began as replacement dwarves, actually, but I suppose they have moved in a more gnommish direction. Go to Comment

I feel almost like it's missing something, but as usual with Coldforged items, It's sheer beuaty. Go to Comment

I love it, enough said. The name is brilliant, the idea even more so. Regardless of the grammatical errors, 5/5! Go to Comment
Roack's comment on 2005-12-04 06:16 AM
sparK!, I have not seen you around the citadel before, but if you keep turning up such rich, high-quality posts as this, I have no doubt you will be welcomed with open arms. This is a perfect background and campaign defining article. You may want to convert it to a scroll, I had trouble with that my self at first. Go to Comment
The Iothun: A New Look at Giants

Roack's comment on 2006-02-12 11:59 PM
I really don't know what to say about this, I'm literally speechless. You've delivered an in-depth and insanely beautiful work. To call the Iothun Giants would be an understatement... Go to Comment

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
