This is a great item. It could be used for a Pulps or Supers game (SuperHeroes/ anti-heroes/ and so on). It works for a modern horror game, if the wrong person is touched by it. It is a total Urban Fantasy piece, magic touching the modern day. It just works.

I would throw all these freetexts on it, just so people could find it. Go to Comment

Well done indeed.

I think that there we find 'modern' magical items so rarely here is that because the items are familiar and close to us, and being near, they are not things of legend, the way we expect magics to be. Go to Comment

Nothing much to add, except kudos for an excellent weapon.

Love it. Bringing magic into modernity is a huge plus for me. The whole post seems vaguely Frank Miller-ish, in a good way mind you. Big thumbs up. Go to Comment

Excellent! You have your very own Quest niche here

When the quest of vengeance is done, however, Nightfall demands a price - vengeance for each of those murdered by the wielder. Guided by the weapon's will, each user almost inevitably claims his or her own life

Very nice. Simple, brutal, and makes me want to use it (And I dont mean /use/ it. Well, you know what I mean) :) Go to Comment

This I really like - though it reminds me superficially of the TV series Dead Man's Gun.

Still, it is more modern and the plots are good!

Nicely done Kassil! Go to Comment

This is a lovely item, the story is great and the idea very well executed.

I especially like the gun's uncanny ability to kill a careless owner, as if by chance.

Nice one Kassil! Go to Comment

I really like this. Modern but still rooted in a historical context, unbalanced creator, item with a personality. It all comes together perfectly. I find myself really wanting to throw this into a game... Go to Comment

An anti-magic zone... That could be very, *very* nasty, depending on the GM. Perhaps even nasty along the lines of 'unexpected surgery' and such.

I'd say that piercing the extradimensional containment has the same effect of puncturing any other extradimensional container - it erupts, basically, which could be interestingly troublesome and rather painful if you've filled it with items - and painful in other ways if some of those items are weapons. Nothing quite like a female finding her bra to suddenly be filled with knives or a male having his codpiece suddenly unleash a bunch of arrows in the general region... Go to Comment

A useful item, though there might be disasterous effects for the wearer if they were to enter an anti-magic area.

What happens if a hole is punched into the garment and it peirces one of the storage areas? Go to Comment

A good piece. The gender-hiding aspect is a nice touch. Go to Comment

Indeed, if he could somehow be healed, he'd likely be a much chastened and more resolute kind of warrior than the grandstanding 'golden lord' he once was. Of course, this would require a cure to a toxin that corrupted his mind and spirit ages ago... One which has defied the efforts of even the gods to cure. An epic task, to be sure.

But an interesting thought, indeed. Go to Comment

Kassil's comment on 2007-12-30 08:10 AM
Thanks. The Lost Gods are definitely from Kuramen's 'Mythic Age'. They're actually the second generation - there's the Primordial Gods before them, which actually made the first form of the world, the Lost Gods who lived during the 'Mythic Age' when the Age of Calamity struck and the world was split into two parallels, and the Mortal Gods who have come since the fading of the Lost Gods. The categories sort-of overlap, as well. The Great Mother is a Primordial who gave birth to a number of the Lost; a few of the Lost still hang around among the Mortals - Goge is technically one of these, on the grounds that his tale is still told and used to detail why the northern lights burn the way they do, but there are others who are more active - Eyrin and Tyrin, the Steelborn Queen and the Master of Iron respectively, are more *active* Lost among the Mortals, and they've even given birth to a few of the latter...

Anyhow, over time I'll keep adding to this pantheon, and the various locations and items listed. Perhaps make a Codex of it... Go to Comment

Right, so. When I wrote this up, it was late, and I was in a twitchy fever/shivering fit. As such, it probably has a fair bit of room for improvement. Given that Siren called it 'interesting' and another friend who I use to gauge the disturbing nature of things called it 'nice', I'm fairly sure it can use some help.

Doughnuts for all. Go to Comment

Arkths or Ravagers: These are large landbound crablike creatures about the size of Grizzly Bears. They live partially in the astreal plane. Their food is magic. They can sense it at huge distances. Since spells and such are hard to eat (being in motion) and magical places are the equivalent of a sea of krill to them, they are looking for magic stashed in concrete places. Their primary food source is magic items, alchemical potions, and enchantments. They do a pretty good job of mangling/ eating the physical aspect of said items in the process of chowing down. These things will be the bane of dungeons everywhere, as they will slowly eat away much of the treasure (and the magical traps... so it can be advantagous to follow these things). Note: They will attack people with highly magical natures (i.e. high magic powers). They will probably kill the person in the process of sucking out the power.
