Posting Systems

tips on posting Systems (part of the Codex Posting Advice)

Thoughts on the Category
At first, I see Systems as being quite a heterogeneous category because the different focuses within this category means that it includes submissions like magic and combat systems which are more rules as well as those on the Patheon of Gods, history of particular worlds that are a little bit different. However, I’ve since been able to conceptualise this category as hinging on an underlying concept, which solves the problem stated above.

Tips:

- The rules/laws governing the system have to be based on logic. The logic underlying a system might be different than anything weve ever encountered in the real and made up worlds that we are used to, but it has to be there. (I know this one holds by definition of what a system is but still I think it’s the most important thing to note about a post about a system)

- The reader should be able to see the underlying concept behind the system or that it offers an alternative perspective to the norm. In other words, just describing the rules of the system is not adequate. Instead, focus on describing a concept and its boundaries.

Might want to put these in as advice requested - generally when codexies or scrolls are submitted at full subs, at the very least the author has added something. These are not ready to be main subs.

Update: Put this out as Collaboration Requested simply because I have levelled up enough to earn enough CR spots even though content is probably long out of context.

Coinlake

       By: Murometz

Coinlake sits perched between two sheer cliffs in the Stigrani range, and is difficult to find, much less approach. Four miles long and two across, the water is a vibrant cyan blue. The lake's shoreline is an unassuming beach of gray pebbles, and its mean depth is seventy feet. The rare times when the sun makes its way between the cliffs and shines over the the still water, one could see clearly the lake's rock-strewn bottom.

Strangely, no fish or aquatic life can be found here.

At night, a peculiar phenomena occurs. When the night sky is clear, the moon and stars are reflected in the lake's surface, but if one were to look at the surface from a high vantage point, the reflection does not match the firmament above!

Instead the water's surface reflects the night sky of some other distant world and seventeen shining golden moons besides, each ones shimmering upon the water like so many gold coins!

Legends whisper that Coinlake is not a lake at all, but a gate or nexus, to some distant alien world.

The mystery has long remained unsolved, and only recently has the Arch-Duke commissioned an expedition to uncover the secret of Coinlake once and for all. Among the team members are several scholars of the Nascent Academy, an astrologer from the Occultists Guild, and of course the PCs, acting as body guards.
