A unique tomb-guardian whose existence springs from the deep love and adoration that its creators possessed for the deceased. While I have never taken hair as a threat seriously, I have to say that you've done a very good job with this.
By the way, is it considered a great honor for a loyal dwarf to contribute his beard for the construction of this being? Go to Comment
Now this is an awesome idea! I can imagine remote villages on the fringes of enchanted forests being continuously under siege by these murderous creations of nature. A perfect explanation for why some ancients forests might be considered ''cursed'' or ''forbidden'' by local priests or sages. Go to Comment
The specters that frequent the most destitute parts of a city, preying on the poor and defenseless,eh? I love them for the unique flavor they would add to any city slum, interesting parts of the local setting that the heroes don't have to slaughter. (Unless they actually care for the homeless, which is unlikely). I could even see them fitting well into the land-scape of a modern metropolis. Which city doesn't have it's ignored population of the homeless?
On the subject of spawning, do their victims who succumb to the infected wounds inflicted by the Shambler, stand an increased chance of becoming one themselves? Go to Comment
Creepy and disturbing.. I like the way this complements the rest of your Repahtian setting. The constant allusion to the obvious human origin of these abominations serves as a stark reminder of the depths to which humnaity is capable of sinking.
I've got a question. Do Repathians use prisoners-of-wars captured in wars against other cultures to replenish the breeding stock required to spawn more variants of their twisted live-stock? Go to Comment
I apologise for the lack of bold headings. It seems that whenever I try to highlight a few words in bold or italics, the entire text turns out that way as well. And as Muro observed, I do not own a reliable spell-checker either, meaning that my editing resources at this point are somewhat limited and rudimentary.
As for the odd name, it was meant to highlight the planet's seeming irrelevance. yes,xx is most commonly employed as a place-holder. This is an entity so unworthy of humanity's attention, that it has not even been given a real name.
I should probably have taken more time over this submission, but my schedule is so tight that I had less than a day to get the whole thing together. Again, my apologies for making this such a trying read. Go to Comment
