It amuses me how most of the reader reactions are centered around the characters who, in the game, were NPCs. As far as I can tell, it's not because the Sidereals, Lunars, and Abyssal are so much more interesting, but because they're the ones doing all the scheming and plotting. It's true, in the ga...

I wasn't expecting Keen Tide to be related to Elated Fury, incidentally. Yeah, me neither. Fallstavia's good at spicing up character involvement. BrilliantRain, you make an interesting point about the two magistrates' personalities. What you read in the Autumn Ruin's backstory was that Keen Tide wa...

Bro, I really like the sideplot about the other groups racing for the Manse. It'd have been fun to do more with them during the game. I do like how everyone is much more connected to each other in your story than in the game, though. It's strangely incestuous, but in a pleasant sort of way. How stra...

The Scriptures of Weeping Triumph 5 (Two Steps Back)

I, Seaside Scribe, feel it is necessary to preface the following with a brief discussion of politics in the Scarlet Dynasty. It had always been Sesus Alon’s intentions to gain a seat in the Greater Deliberative and become a powerful senator. With temporal power second only to that of the Scarlet ...

Well, I did not expect such scrutiny about the artifact and hearthstone combo for Autumn Ruin. Yes, bro, Autumn Ruin would need the hearthstone in addition to the artifact to have any chance of prevailing against the Wyld Hunt, I just did not specify that above. I admit, I really like tailoring the ...

Thanks for the bump, bro. And thanks for the compliment, BrilliantRain. Yeah, she's not a nice person (by any stretch of the imagination), but she potentially has some redeeming qualities. Anyway, she is probably my second-favorite character of all time. Fun to play. I've always been tempted to writ...

As the player of The Autumn Ruin, I am flattered that people find my character interesting/amusing/dispicable. I refuse to play 'evil' characters (a personal rule from back in my D&D days) but decided to come as close as I dared in this series. So, I designed Gold Revelation for her-- an artifac...

Scriptures of Weeping Triumph 4 (One Step Forward)

Two girls knelt in disturbed earth. They looked so much alike that household guests often thought they were twin sisters rather than first cousins. The girls had long, gently curling brown hair, narrow and graceful faces, and green-brown eyes. They both greatly resembled their mothers, who were as c...

Generally, I like this style. If anything, it is less overtly overwhelming compared to other SMA. However, many of the Charms complement one another, which I like quite a bit, and which adds to the style's flexibility. The only suggestion I'd make is to add a note to Night Lasts an Eternity. The mot...

Thanks for the feedback, bro, I always appreciate it.

As much as possible, I try to base the power scales off pre-existing st...

Rainfall Tempest Style [Terrestrial Martial Art for 2e]

There is no force in creation more vast and destructive than the storm. One storm can encompass a city, a nation, or even an entire region. Not the works of humans or the landscape itself can escape its reshaping effects. For a purely elemental force, weather is an extremely powerful one. Therefore,...

Better than I know how to do, anyway. Also, you write the dimensions of a child's world very well. Thanks, bro. I appreciat...

Here are a few notes for gaming mechanics that I have devised: Kites: Flying a kite is an action requiring a roll of Dexterity + (either Thrown or Athletics). Difficulty is generally one, but can be higher with strong wind, or too little wind. No wind makes the action impossible (without Charms and/...

Sekli gazed towards the other end of the courtyard to where her cousins were dicing tiny, child-sized fortunes of jade scrip away. Sekli had watched her elder cousins play in this way for many months, but had not been invited to play. She had learned the rules by observation, and knew she wanted a p...

In this next installment, I tried taking a walk on the dark side a little. Remembering the horrors of the playground inspired me. That should concern and worry you. It does me. Please enjoy the ongoing chronicle of Weeping Triumph, known as Sekli when she was a child.

Poor brother, Sesus Decher. Yeah, I think he'll have to die for the cause (ssh! don't tell him yet! it's a surprise!).

And yeah, Spirit-Frog. I thought it was cool and all introspective and such. It'll probably be a character thing to do whenever she has a chance.

Looking forward to gaming!

Shortly after Sekli’s convalescence, she began her preparations for primary school. She could already read simple texts, figure numbers up to two digits, and convey herself in a properly respectful manner at dinners, but she had much more to learn. Her older brother, Sesus Decher, volunteered to b...

Good stuff, bro. Reminds me of that other Chen shortstory you wrote a few years back, when she fought the Sidereal.

I'm also curious, is this the same style that I've been ironing out for Felicity? The Cerise Embrace of Sundering Style? Or is it something entirely different?

You apparently don't like the original anymore, I see. How about Mnemon Xahaden. Furthermore, I assume he had to take a "disguise" when he Exalted through illicit means. If so, he could get a really cool epithet, like, Stoneweaver or Thankless Slate. Since I remember the character from the game, may...
