Love it. Reminds me strongly of China Mieville, which is good in my book. "The Maul" is most definitely from Tower Of The Elephant by Robert Howard (it's the slum that Conan is in at the beginning of the story; I know my Conan!) Go to Comment
I will read this in full shortly, but something is nagging me. What other slum in the wide-world of gaming and literature is known as "The Maul". The name, specifically for a slum, sounds soooo familiar for some reason.
I enjoyed this, and admire (if that is worth anything to ya) the composition. We get a little history, a little geography, a little ethnography and few overviews of notable characters. I also like how the links were employed. Go to Comment
The secret for immortality has been discovered by an eccentric wizard/mad scientist. Its found you need to reapply once a month. As people stop dying, and the birth rate increases exponentially, people are forced into homelessness, because of the need for food reamins the same, and food is not being produced fast enough to feed the undying population. The PCs have to find the creator and kill him, and destroy production, to save the world from undying, unending torture from hungryness.
