Re: Tansiarda - let's flesh it out

Thanks for the ideas! This is a nice little seed for a diplomatic adventure. I really like it, though on a second thought I've one problem with it. If there are dwarf engineers capable of designing a bridge massive enough to arch the Serpent River, wouldn't the structural flaws of the towers be obv...

Re: Temperature and Air

(I used to run Mage the Ascension, so I can get a bit jargony. "If you're not hot for metaphysics, best to just skip it" -the Principia Discorida) Well, if the Elemtalists learn that Air is a Fluid comprised of multiple gasses.. this shakes up some of the foundations of the current Elemen...

Re: Temperature and Air

Okay, after this I need to stop posting here and let people catch up, but I got excited. The Promised Land has the Bessemer Process for steel production, which requires a good deal of dolomitic earth for lining the crucibles. In the process of mining dolomite, you're likely to find (as co-occurring ...

Re: Temperature and Air

Okay, so I found this great site ( http://environmentalchemistry.com/yogi/periodic/meltingpoint.html ) that has the periodic table sorted by melting point. Given the constraint of 10 degrees x talent rank, and allowing Elementalists to "stack" this Talent, you'd need three Elementalists wi...

Re: Obsidimen Racial Memory

Hm. Some interesting ideas. So what if the Liferock wanted to gather specific information about how something had changed in the past several hundred years? I could see an obsidiman being created/extruded specifically for the mission, and being pre-loaded with information that he would need for the ...

Re: Temperature and Air

I've been fooling with other kinds of elemental engines. Air Engines are easy enough. The problem comes when you have an engine that's too powerful for the superstructure of the airship. In my campaign, a whole new class of airship had to be engineered to use the air engines - enter the skymoram. Ba...

Re: Tansiarda - let's flesh it out

It's big enough that there's a harbormaster in my campaign, and more than one inn for overnight layovers when you're traveling by riverboat. I figure the docks and warehousing and merchant offices are the primary reason for Tansiarda to exist, being at such an important junction of trade routes. I p...

Obsidimen Racial Memory

I asked this question a couple years ago, and never got a really good answer on it. Okay, a few starting premises: 1. The Liferock contains the collective memories of all of the obsidimen of the Brotherhood who have ever existed. 2. This is because when an obsidiman grows old, he merges back into hi...

Temperature and Air

Using the Temperature Talent, two Elementalists could tag-team a container and lower the temperature enough to freeze the air. The discovery that air can be frozen would be massive enough, but when you look at the time component, the elementalists are going to see the various gases condensing out at...

Insurance

Has anyone given thought to the changes and impact that shipping insurance would have on the trading Houses of Throal? The Houses all maintain their own investments at this point. What if someone were to organize a company selling insurance on merchant ships, and offer it to all the Houses? See the ...
