OH. Well to answer that question - the word "Profitis" in Greek simply means "foreteller." So to be with a "Prophet" is a foretelling of power, good fortune, and might, or whatever other bounties an incredibly powerful Ethereal companion might bring about. It's a stretch, but all Ethereal spirits have rather abstract, metaphorical, single-word names.

On another note, I'm adding this to my Codex on Etherer and Magick. Go to Comment

I like it alot - I could see use for this for a defender type character, who becomes adept at non-lethal pommel strikes, using his blade only to defend and parry.

Easily a 5. This is truly an excellent, thoughtful and emotionally provocative  sub.

Yeah, looking back I think three children might be far too little. I might up it to five throughout their life.

fixed the pores thing - it was late, probably had my words all mixed.

it seems that "Caste" is, as you say, a wrong word. I want to confer a feeling of isolation of a subset of individuals from the species. How would you make that idea come to life?

And as for an anime feel, it wasn't what I was going for, but far be it from me to tell you how to visualize my words =] Go to Comment

Changed the "Castes" thing to a series of stable, and somewhat predictable mutations.

hylandpad's comment on 2011-06-16 06:23 PM


Thanks for the response. I agree now that I should have broken this down into a couple subs.



On the electronics note: this isn't a hard fantasy setting; If I had to coin the genre I'm writing in, I suppose it would be called "Science Fantasy." Electronics and energetic flow is known to the learned people, Wizards in particular are familiar with the concepts. Ether flows alot like electricity, and can be inhibited and channeled by certain elements.



I should probablly have made it clear that the world isn't one of "high fantasy" - it's truly a world where science/technology and "magic" interact with each other quite frequently, and while it might sound wierd to hear words like "Magick" and "Diode" next to each other, it would make perfect sense to a Greatlander of the day (providing he is learned enough to distinguish)

Changed the sub entirely. Instead of devoting a single sub to a great many things, I took the time and narrowed this one down to Ether and Ethereal Magick alone.

I like the idea of a city of undead just going about their business. My own two cents - what if they didn't know they were dead? Perhaps they are blissfully unaware (or they chose to forget) that something terrible happened here, and they react to outsiders strangely because they look "funny" or "pink." I'd say perhaps they are outright friendly undead, if not a bit xenophobic, who carry on in death much as they did in life.

I especially liked the grabber - this is an interesting concept, for some reason reminding me of bright wizards from warhammer, though they have little in common. Using anger as a power source is a very cool, but wouldn't it be a pity if one day a Rage Mage woke up, and found that he simply wasn't angry anymore... hmmm... I smell a quest called "The Mage's Lost Rage."

Not a bad submission, perhaps needs a little work.



Someone had hinted at the idea of it being a teleportation device? Perhaps it might have been, for some race of advanced sun-god-worshipping people who were immune to the radiance of the tower. Or perhaps they had special equipment which immunized them. And maybe if the PCs found a way to get a hold of that equipment they could go somewhere REALLY cool. Of course...that's just the ramblings of a radical, senile old mage who lives in a tower miles away from the town...



Definently has potential!

hylandpad's comment on 2011-08-22 04:04 PM


Well, if he hadn't left this might have turned into something good.



My only criticism is that he much more dark and assassin-esq than ranger-esq. There is no real mention of an affinity for the wild, any of the cliche animal empathy or other traits a ranger might have (other than the use of a ghillie suit.) I picture this character as more of a Commando-assassin character class, which could be kind of cool. I liked the use of knives - which added a nice touch, again, very assassinny. A blowgun is a good switch away from a bow, but another more exotic ranged weapon might be cool - maybe something made up just for this particular character class, like a Vertical-Mounted bowgun or something.

top notch sub. excellent narration - wish I could write half so artfully. Very unique idea for a "Dark" unicorn that isn't the stereotypical "nightmare."

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
