Bloodthirsty! Very in depth and complete for an entertainment company - I am impressed with how in depth the Cosmic becomes.

I like that the current operator is a persona of an enigmatic politician - we all have our dark sides! Go to Comment

Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-07-06 07:00 PM
Good to see some Decathros lovage! I love how this place is a political minefield and the wrong social step can mean the destruction of centuries worth of aristocracy. I can imagine pc's coming into Vartanadel under the authority of one of the lords, but if they act the wrong way it can mean the ruin of that lord; this would give plenty of opportunity to show off your roleplaying skills.

I had big plans for the mines in my Decathros game :D Go to Comment

Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-06-29 08:49 PM
There's a very X-men feel to this, and im sure even in the Cosmic era, SPP will have its fair share of bigotry and racism to go along with it.

Also, seeing as this is the more common of psychic powers, I'm sure there would have been a surge in vigilantism as this became more and more common; It would also have made life a hell of a lot harder for any policing force. Give someone a superpower and they'll more likely use it selfishly than for greater good - not everyone has an 'uncle ben' to share inspiring quotes about responsibility :p

Can people with these psychic abilities.be tracked, do you suppose? psycho perhaps they could.be sought out by the rarer form of psychics, which would lead to those psychics to be employed by enforcement agencies. Go to Comment
Drake Humblestaff

Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-06-20 07:04 PM
Aah, this tale warms my heart. I was expecting yoy to take the story one of two ways: Either have drake become a great adventurer, or have him comedically fail and become a bumbling 'tag-along'.that gets the group in trouble.

You took it a third direction and actually made Uncle Humblestaff an endearing character even though he has few skills. Good job, and an easy read. Go to Comment

A nasty, nasty beast. The best thing this sub did was make me read corpsefall, which is awesome :D

I can imagine that in corpsefall, people would risk raids on one of these critters' dens (perhaps while they are out at a corpsefall) to scavenge the massive spines as building materials. Go to Comment
Skezemos Library

Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-06-12 06:51 AM
Like most of my subs, I start with a single idea and let it naturally expand from there. The idea I had was 'Wouldn't it be cool if there were books that were gibberish, but if you brought them together you could summon nasties!'. From there I decided i'd make it a location, because I needed that for the Occult guild. A library seemed natural for books, and then because there was demon summoning involved i figured a backstory about some secret demonologist kinda guy seemed appropriate. After that, i figured i'd better give the place itself a bit of flair, so i made the 'haunted' kind of idea. Then I figured a good way for it to be haunted was if I linked it to Skezemo's demise.
That's about how it came to be. Go to Comment

A very concise and to-the-point sub - while not large, it's full of information and has all you need to add to any game.

Also, the picture is incredible! I wish I could draw even half as good as you! Go to Comment

Thanks for the feedback - and that goes double since you don't read long subs, plus I know demon/devil related subs aren't really your cup of tea. Go to Comment

I like these, and I love the Bonestitcher, too!
This is a powerful healing tool, and I like that you've attempted balance by nature of the bonepicker causing scars and intense pain, as well as the chance of hungry bonestitchers coming up which adds an element of gambling and risk to the use.

I think it would be best used against the players than for them, used as a trump card by evil cultists when their chips are down. Go to Comment

Id say a demon would fuel a flickerwikk for months longer than a human would. And yes, I would say about 6 months without a feed will cause a Flickerwikk to sputter out and die.

My goal was a creature which was dangerous, but also limited and with exploitable weaknesses. Go to Comment

No worries, Gossamer - I have a nasty habit of not re-reading my subs for grammar/spelling.

I meant Lashing, though Latching can be substituted too. Lashing can mean to beat or strike something, but it can also mean to bind, fasten or tie (Such as lashing ropes together). I am trying to use some creative license to suggest the tendrils are lashing around and onto the other shadow, thus holding him in place.

And yes, due to my haste I misused apostrophes in those particular instances. The lecture was not necessary as I am aware of the particular use of such things, in spite of my error, but I shall take it in stride.

I will mention though, that being too meticulous about pointing out and correcting every single error you see may end up rubbing people the wrong way and tarnishing your own reputation, no matter how noble your intentions.

By all means, point out glaring mistakes, but if someone makes one or two minor errors in an otherwise solid writeup, it's usually a good idea to just let it slide.

Though I am not offended personally, others may be - pride is a dangerous thing :p Go to Comment

Valus Longflower
NPCs  (Crisis)   (Single-Storyline)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2013-05-29 10:25 PM
As Cheka's comment goes - Robin hood, and the Yellow Tails be his merry men!

Nevertheless, Valus and the Yellow Tails can be useful; They could be introduced to the PC's as simple thieves; and even start of robbing the PC's. However as the game progresses, perhaps the PC's will end up understanding Valus's motives, and may even end up helping him out for a raid! Valus could become an invaluable ally for down the track.
