This is freaking awesome. I love it. It feels like a mix of the Mortuary in Planescape, the steampunk-ish feel of China Mieville's books, and a certain eerie, creepily morbid touch special to it. The visual image of it hanging on the skyline like a diseased, rotting tree stump is arresting, and the way the interior is described gives a good feel for it.
The aspects of how the Caretakers feel soiled, and some strive to absolve themselves somehow, gives it a more real feeling, as well, with ordinary folks trying not to let their job get to them... Go to Comment
Ah, the latest addition in an expanding setting! A great one as well, I should mention that I will GM a session in the Locastus setting tomorrow and the tower will be one of the locastions featured. This write has what I expected of it when I read the headline. But I feel that it is missing something, that little extra. Hmmm(need to think about that), but still- a great submission that recives a high score from me. Go to Comment
A zombie factory chock full of lovely detail! I like the bit about the Caretakers feeling "soiled" and seeking to be absolved. Also like the Body Praxis detail. You know, I kinda agree with Mike. There is something "sexy" missing, but I dont know what it may be.
Val: I have this notion that the soul must be kept away from the Deader, otherwise it will turn into a real, bloodthirsty undead. I think the Deaders are more like golems than zombies, the makers just make use of a thing with all the right joints and so on, which would otherwise be expensive to make.... Go to Comment
First of all, let me say that I love the name! And while there was nothing wrong with the write-up I felt that it was somehow lacking. More like a frame for something then the actual "painting". It shows much promise though, and hints at some great ideas.
This could be expanded, and I would love it to be!
(P.S- As Valadaar, my vote is a placeholder until you expand it.) Go to Comment
Good bones for a location, but currently somewhat missing the meat. You mentioned in chat that you would be changing that in time, so this vote is a placeholder - I'll change it as needed. Go to Comment
OK, ladies and gentlemen, I´ve added a map to this sub as well.
Sadly, it has to be a linked image, since our gallery ain´t accepting uploads at the moment.
As soon as it works again, I´ll put the map up as a nice thumbnail.
Hope you´ll like it!
