I like the idea of the undead being treated differently, with respect. That made a nice change.
No criticism as such, except for that part where you used "Deeper in," as a sentence starter twice in a row. That irked me for some reason. The second sentence could perhaps have been differently worded. Maybe; "Delving even further into the catacombs..." or something like it?
Gaming can indeed be quite an expensive hobby. I don't have any manuals or rule books myself. If I needed one I would go to my local library and ask if they have it, if they didn't they were usually able to order it in, free of charge :)
Dice are expensive as well. Which reminds me, I need to get in contact with Strolen about that pair >.<
A good article, I'm sure that this will prove useful to people.
Urbants-Creatures that move quickly around on their massive arms, and their "legs" dangle about from their torso, at about elbow length. They can move fairly quickly, but not as fast as an obese human, and can "jump" fairly high. Their "legs" are very powerful, and can kill with one blow. The bad thing is, Urbants cannot block attacks at their heads, which have relatively no neck, from the length of their legs being so short.
