At first it almost seems to unrealistic and over powered. The ability to create zombies at will by piecing them together like a child's play toy.
That being said. I gruesomely love it. On first reading I said a loud this needed to be under the undead freetext and lo and behold it is. And a Cult quest at that. I'm failing at my own mastery of my Cult of the Dead.
Aside from my minor gripe, I would tend to use it as the corpses would pull free from its body when enough parts amassed together in a single spot spilling forth undead to protect it solely for no other purpose.
A great and creepy monster indeed. I personally wouldn't make it as impossible to destroy as it sounds as an end boss but still creepy and memorable when one brings one of these out.
Fixed and fixed... the anadem is a crown also detailed as garland or a wreath worn around the "crown" of the head... So it is a band worn on the head. And the voice of said narrator may be seen in the future for another item/NPC etc. Go to Comment
Kind of difficult to read, which I assume was on purpose. The idea, or at least what I think of the idea, is a sound one and decently realistic to be morbid and a tad scary.
A few plot hooks and a short list of what the banks use your information for would be great. I realize putting those in are outside the transmission part of the sub but put it in for us knowledge freaks. Otherwise I like it. Go to Comment
I like it, but something just doesn't seem to sit well with me. He definitely seems a being, creature, entity or what have you, of evil and death. The concept of reducing what we know to be a being of pure light and goodness (some settings anyway) into its antithesis is awesome and you have done that. I just cant put my finger on it. Withholding my vote right now until I read it a few more times.
Current vote would be a 3/5 but wanting it to be higher. Go to Comment
I have an image to go with it. I'll try to link it tonight. I thought of the questions you asked about but due to time and the formatting messing up on me I forgot to add them. I'll fix it tonight. Go to Comment
Updated with a small bit of information per Dosstas' suggestions. And here is a link to an image that inspired said thought. Although the skull in the image rests on what seems to be a golden goblet, the Moira Chalice of Kormak rests on a similar base although it is made of blackened bone.
The soul of a mage has been trapped in his own bust for centuries. The bust is a foot in height and made of a dark silvery metal. It is well crafted, perfect in every detail of the mage's features. The frozen expression is one of shock. It was sold off in auction after the mage's unexplained disappearance and has been passed around as a curio ever since. The cause of his entrapment? He practiced in secret; none knew of his hobby. Being self taught, he was unable to tell that the spell he thought was for protection was actually for entrapment...
