Pretty much, yes. I get just as tired of the Shambling Trees of Death as I do of the Moaning Zombie/Dusty Skeleton. Go to Comment

That's pretty much the way they look in my mental image. They're the sort of thing that you're not sure if you want a bottle of holy water or a bottle of weed killer to deal with. Go to Comment

Considering some of what you come up with, I consider that high praise. Go to Comment

Yes - the fear of the undead tends to be blunted when you have roughly ten thousand zombie movies, at least as many vampire movies, and several thousand more depicting other kinds of unliving horrors, to say nothing of books, games, and so on. You might get edgy if they threaten your character's life, but they're not that terrifying because you've seen all their variations, and in most systems the players have their stats memorized.

This thing, you're not sure if you need a druid to command it or a priest to exorcise it, once you realize what it is that's springing out of the darkness, slicing things open, and then fading back amid the greenery as quickly as a hunting cat. Go to Comment

Thank you. Like a lot of my subs that end up liked, this was one of my late-night flashes of inspiration. Go to Comment

I do like these ones. It is a logical "naturally" arising undead. The Unspeakable Army of the Green, so to speak. Go to Comment

This very well might get used in an upcoming session. I find this to be a very original form of undead, which will certainly blow minds and freak people out (because that's how it works). People tend to get scared of something they find to be unnatural, but that loses its edge after you see so many zombies, vampires, and general undead. Something like this is fresh, original, and definitely NOT the kind of 'natural' that the players are expecting! Good job, and keep up the posting! These are gems! Go to Comment

The visual I get in my head of these guys is phenomenal: white bone wrapped in green and brown, colorful flowers bursting from eye sockets and in between ribs. Big thumbs up. Go to Comment

As I mentioned before, I have a thing for these type of critters. Another nifty creature for the compendium! Go to Comment

Not a fan of zombies normally but this creature is refreshing and I can see the logic behind why they arise. Good work overall. Go to Comment

A challenging creature... not so much for the heroes' swords, but for their sense of decency. Me likes scary creatures that turn out to be different. I also like the second plot hook... no need for gods to intervene, when other priests can... and suddenly there is a religious conflict in the making.

They are worth considering, and using. Good work here. Go to Comment

It's possible, but most of the time the Forsaken still don't recognize the gods even as they're 'fading' - the despair comes from a sudden realization that souls exist, and that they're trapped in their own corpse rather than slipping into oblivion like they expected.

On the other hand, one who realized that it was bound by divine will might well end up with an aura of furious anger, and I'd say it'd be a lot more dangerous than the despairing Forsaken - probably liable to attack priests and holy places on sight. Go to Comment

Yeah, I doubt the Forsaken are anything less than very rare, but I'd expect they'd happen occasionally; more malevolent churches, if they found one, might trap it and use it as a proof that one should bow to their will, for defiance of the divinity/divinities they worship leads to such fates.

I like that notion enough to update the second plot hook with it. Thank you for pointing out that it doesn't even have to involve the gods responsible for the curse in the first place, just mundane religious politics. A holy war! Go to Comment

Heh.

Given that, protests of certain groups aside, there's no evidence of 'active gods' in our world - I think you're probably rather safe from becoming one of the Forsaken.

Me, I'm a Discordian. I'm half-agnostic, half-atheist, and forever harassed by wellsprings of chaos in my life. We've taken over Limbo, once the Catholic church dropped it, so you're welcome to drop by and stake a claim to a chunk of the infinite metaphysical real estate! Even atheism can use metaphysical real estate. Go to Comment
