One should hope that most adventurers have more reason than to trust the words of the first peasant they come across, but hey, you never know. :)

If this obstacle is removed, the plot is usable. Go to Comment

Duplicates were removed and broken links fixed. Things should lead where they are supposed to.

Also, if your true love gave you four kegs of Time-Wine on the fourth day, she also gave you quite a headache on the fifth day. :) Go to Comment

I was pondering, whether a silly freetext wasn't more appropriate to this. But then I noticed the Humor/Editorial category and had to admit it belongs there. So here goes the vote. Go to Comment

A nice set of ideas. Could be easily turned into a generator, so if you want to, feel free.

A generator is indeed in the works, there is already a fully working version at http://generating.strolen.com/gen/charback.html . Have fun with it. Go to Comment

Oh, and: the "Other Race" option is inside, just not very likely to be generated with a 5% chance. ;) Go to Comment

And for the record, a Citadelised version exists as well: http://www.strolen.com/random.php?page=charback

I didn't notice any attack here, but for some reason legalese mumble tends to be very aggravating, not to mention any kind of hint of 'unoriginal' work. I've carried those shoes a few times as well, so I know how both claims can annoy. Please, don't get discouraged, and stay around.


Aside: we can get pretty harsh sometimes, but we don't delete here submissions based on moodswings, or what-ifs. Not ever. We don't want to lose anyone's work. Go to Comment

Thank you that you care. We all should certainly comment more... it is the flow of our lives that allows us to drift towards or to be carried away from the Citadel. It is at times like these when the it becomes clear how strong the community is - a few people turn away for a while, and there is suddenly silence in what seemed to be a crowded marketplace.

Allow me to take at least your post from the darkness, to show it is not unwanted. Go to Comment

Just an aside, one thing I have noticed here now: if a submission has views, but no votes or comments, it doesn't have to mean anything bad - there are various spiders and crawlers out there, that keep searching automatically, and those are counted among the views (I think). There is also the Barbarian Horde factor, a group that may be quite silent for its (undetermined) size. Lastly, there are the various members, who may just breeze through a post and skip it due to a lack of time, or read it thoroughly, and ponder for minutes (or hours?) before commenting.


To put it shortly: if you post a submission, and it has views, but no comments, don't panic right away. :)

They will come. Go to Comment

A very nice 30, and I like the reasoning as well - there's got to be reasons to go into those often-lethal maintenance ducts... :)

Excellent!

And you know, sooner or later will some wizard think about reversing the effect, turning random things back into the mist, so that its properties can be better studied and used.

Little does he notice, that such experiments could be used to cause horrible destruction, or unravel the whole of creation. Who will stop the well-meaning wizard, and his dubious associates? Go to Comment

War of the Roses as a campaign plot. Two noble lines converge somehow, each line thinks it has the rightful claim to the throne. Deciding this long ago was handled by some divine intervention, requiring both houses to come together at some point. They aren't so willing to get together this time. Civil war, or a new king?
