Another cool one. The interesting dynamic here is that many "night-types" may detest these flowers, crushing them underfoot whenever seeing a patch. Though, I would suggest a name change, to avoid confusion with the common sunflower. Go to Comment
Theotech. Never thought of -that-, actually. You get my thumbs up for originality, for sure. I like the name Whrrrm also, though somewhat unrefined, it fits well the character of a direct man, like a smith. Go to Comment
I leave that up to the GM who uses the Melders. The Inscriptions on it help merge the metal and flesh into a seamless whole, among other things, but that can include or exclude the actual sense of touch. The body enhancements in general are fully-capable replacements for the limbs lost/replaced, but there is nothing to prevent Melders from becoming more and more inhuman and unfeeling the more portions of their body are replaced if a GM so desires.

It seriously seemed like the natural extension of divine blueprints, to be honest. From your comment, I wonder if I made it clear enough that Whrrrm was the diety, and Ailm/Kecet was simply the Leader of the Melders? Or were you mentioning that Whrrrm seemed to be a name that a direct man such as a smith would bestow upon such a hypermachine? Go to Comment
I honestly tried to make Whrrrm be benevolent at first, but I just couldn't force it on what seemed to me to be amoral by nature. I had to leave it up to prospective GMs to decide where he falls along the spectrum, whether that be good, evil, or perhaps a more Axtrami-style neutral.
Re: Artificial Head - I was more worried about PCs wanting Melder laser-cannons on their arms, to be honest. Couldn't be done (or shouldn't be allowed) with normal thaumatech, but the theotech could prove all sorts of nifty in that regard, if a GM was so inclined.
Hm...Clerics of Whrrrm being gifted with theotech spell-emitters...I see an NPC coming on. Go to Comment
An awesome sub... A great combination of religion and a craft. The concept of faith powered mechanics are a really interesting concept and one I will definately be laying claim to. Punkcasher Steampunky... I'll be claiming that as a new word too :) Go to Comment
I'm so glad that you wrote a new piece around this religion. Otherwise I may never have found this gem! I absolutely love Whrrrm, and Kecet as well. Perhaps it was just the write-up, but I have a hard time seeing this deity as evil, given its propensity to help those that cannot be healed any other way. I do wonder what its long-term goals might be, but for now I am just happy this sub exists. Go to Comment
