And since so many citadellians deride endless epics ;) well, here you go!

The challenge I was given was to produce a complete submission, using 75 words or less. It comes to 75 words, not counting the summary or title. Go to Comment

Classic! There is a moral here - I know it. Now to find it. Where is that bloody slab?

Given how mad I get when I lose something, this would drive me mad far sooner then poor Fulminus! Go to Comment

Don't you hate it when you spend what seems like forever looking for something, and it turns out it was where you left it all along? Go to Comment

My only comments would be some general advice. I recommend specifying what type of stone the tablets are made of to give the submission more flavor. Also, aside from replenishing water, it may be useful to explain why ship's would put in to this island, and how often they do so (for instance, the island could be on the the path of a major trade route).

Well, it was not precisely written that it was Death, only a spirit that came to claim them... so maybe it was something else. :)


Oh, and I like the group! Go to Comment

Nicely done. I like the fact that they were given more time to play their music, until the music didn't make them happy any more. This actually fits nicely with a particular world outlook I favor; music has power. Sometimes a lot of power, if the players are good enough. Go to Comment

Poignant and sad in it's own way. Mysteries are what keep people coming back for more, no exploded diagrams and point by point dissections. Go to Comment

Nicely done Wulf! An evocative tale, and an interesting group of performers. The song brings back quite a few bar jukebox memories for me too!


Another "yes" vote, on keeping mysteries, mysteries btw. Go to Comment

Sessiliths

       By: Murometz

Sessiliths (name based on the word sessile) are gargoyle-type creatures which are stationary, attached to the stone of whichever foundation they are bound to. Though they can move their extremities and limbs they are unable to move away from their particular perch. In lieu of swooping down and attacking like their mobile cousins the gargoyles proper, sessiliths are equipped with their own brand of mischief. The creatures are all able to verbalize and thus usually hurl vile insults and curses upon passersby. The cumulative effects of dozens of sessiliths cursing, screaming, and speaking in tongues, can have an effect of temporary confusion (or even discord) in those forced to listen to the shrieking stone gremlins.

Additionally, most possess the ability to "spout" or spit forth various undesirable projections, such as tar, boiling water, or even acid. While they can usually be avoided easily enough or even destroyed (their "bodies" feature the same defenses as gargoyles), sessiliths are usually placed in such a way as to hinder all trespassers and interlopers, narrow corridors, claustrophobic tunnels and other related "gauntlets", where they cannot be easily avoided. Like gargoyles, sessiliths come in all sorts of grotesque shapes and sizes, though they tend to resemble tiny horned devils, demonic amphibians, or simply distorted faces and heads, more often than not.
