I like this. And how I'd use it would be as a chaos-bringer to the world. As it changes hands time and time again, devastation follows. Emperors fund teams to retrieve it, then teams to retrieve it from them and so on. A hot-potato of death, until one who could use it to its full advantage takes it. And this s Go to Comment
The Immortal Worms

I envisioned their movement through solid materials as more supernatural than mechanical - they pass through the materials as if they were soft and pliable to them. As such, I didn't put much thought into their castings. The sub was inspired by a fishing trip with my son as I was baiting the hook.

As for immunity/resistance to poisons, I believed I covered that off with the passage:

"They are not indestructible, but are able to survive within the earth to the depths of several miles, subject to the immense pressures, temperatures and the toxicity of both air and stone"

So, metals, acids, CO, CO2, H2SO, etc, are all found in the depths, so all inorganic poisons and simple organic poisons would be protected

The title is a people's name for the things - they are effectively immortal. Another piece of somewhat dangerous, somewhat odd, magic to throw in one's world, not unlike the Voracious Slug.

I think a referral would be in order - given how critical his cover is for his work, he would never deal with his customers in person.

He likely could only work in larger cities, where the normal high rate of accidents would help cover his activities.

I would really like to see a CRPG with this level of sophistication built in...

I almost fell into the trap AG mentioned with this one, but I like the visuals on this one.

It would be interesting for a PC to be targeted by one of these in cyberspace that had developed a fascination for them, even though they were not deliberately targeted by whoever deployed the KiKi. Its obsession with the PC could be quite annoying for the party that just wants the KiKi to do its damn job.

I like this one. And hate it, having done battle with some locally. Damn hornets. Damn ants. At least they are not fire ants. I digress. This is a good one!

Especially like the Superior version.

Johnny's Sling
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Magical)
valadaar's comment on 2015-08-25 08:12 AM
My thoughts are that the sling needs magical/fantastic seeds to really shine, but if you mean seeds instead of pages of a book, then yes.

I still like the thought of hitting an earth elemental and turning it into a chia pet :P

Its source material, not exposition. It can be dry and technical and detailed. In his comment above he never said this text would ever show up in the actual novel - its just stuff to keep his own head straight on his final product.

For that matter, the entire idea could end up on the cutting room floor, but that doesn't mean its useful for him to put here to fill out his universe.

An interesting start, and I love the name. I like the idea of the order mingling the mystical with the creative.

You are absolutely free to determine the likelihood of the success/fail critical result as you see fit. My intent was to provide the tool where massive campaign level events could be brought about.

As for its length, i have 40+ long subs in work which will likely not see light. This is not one of them. It was originally going to be a 100 but one thing led to another.... Go to Comment

I have a stillborn sub with a similar idea behind it - the Karth. One of a fleet of autonomous warships, the lone (cliche) survivor of the class. It has gone off to make a small empire for itself in a far flung corner of humanspace. Might revive it.
