Thanks, it is a nice addition. I like the idea of a camel-based creature. They are, to me, exotic creatures. Go to Comment

Descriptive nature was well written. I got a good feel for what these creatures look like. More information, and perhaps some backround would have been nice, though t'was a nice overall piece.

These creatures are so odd, I'd need them have to have a magical origin to be able to rationalize them.

I want to know what kind of sound it makes. You could use that to mess with the players!

Domestication: what are they used for? Being eight feet tall might not be the easiest thing to farm with. Like elephants, can they use their horn to manipulate things? Drag stuff? Used to pull wagons... Go to Comment

The sound is a long and deep blart for lack of an exact replicated sound. It is deep similar to a tuba sound. Very clear and resonant, not hollow sounding.

If you saw a picture of it, it would probably make more sense.



Edit, but alas it won't let me put it up...

I like the details, the horn, the bleating, the longer front legs, the back leg claws... Go to Comment

The hollow horn thing, while cool, really takes me out of the reality of the submission. A horn hollow enough to produce the tuba sound would be large and thin-walled, and not the best for use as a weapon. Perhaps if it were positioned as a magical creature it would work better.

Insects are a great deal of fun. Huge insects more so. Go to Comment

I like the details, like the different types of ants, their roles and their physical differences.

Mmmmm. ant eggs! my favorite! Go to Comment

Good details, though the color-coding really does not fit - ants use pheromones almost exclusively to communicate, and have quite poor vision.

The ant egg is a nice touch. Overall, a solid sub.

While I don't dislike this item, I felt it was quite similar to the Stonekin ring you just posted but less good (less atmospheric and less interesting powers). That's why I only gave it 3/5 (I gave the other 5/5). Go to Comment

It would be good in the Court of Queen Yocasta.

What if there was something like this, where if it was worn too long, (paticulary if the impersonated person had been murdered) the person would turn into that other person inside and out? *has creation idea*

Hours
1 to 4-As you described
5-6 The person can do a perfect imitation
6-7 General uneasyness
8-10 Other thoughts start coming into one's head.The wise person will take the choker off now
11-12-Two spirits in one body, taking the choker off needs a real act of will
13-For the wearer, death, as their very spirit,their very memories, turn into that of who they are impersonating?

What if wearing something of that type was a penalty for murder,and the PC's were sent to rescue a murderer (or innocent victim wrongly convicted) from justice? Go to Comment

I failed to put in any plot hooks, for that I am sorry. I wil lremedy that here if I can.

Iain, I agree on the surface they are similar but they were actually designed months apart and for different gaming sessions.

Thanks for the votes though. Go to Comment

Common for sailors to get lashings for punishment. Sailors would then get tattoos of god symbols on thier back so the thrasher was less likely to whip the symbol of the god.

Others say symbols bring bad luck. They draw the attention of the god and it could be wrathful.
