Really cool - I have a race - the Rephatians - who are very cannibalistic, and this would fit in very well with them.

A bit game specific, but no matter - this is an excellent post!

I definitely agree that a different end for the eighth time would be good. I'm not following your reference though. Could you steer me in the right direction? Thanks for your comment. Go to Comment

I like the way you would have taken with it. It makes sense that as the body works through a set of self checks and balances and that certain body parts contain certain powers. I suppose I didn't want to go that way because I didn't want the baddies (or worse yet the PCs) completely engineering themselves and thus have game balance issues. I wanted a chance of failure on an increasingly slippery slope. I think that from what you've presented, one could keep this article as is, for the masses, and have one rare Asuramancer, knows the true path from ancient days... your idea. Unless there's more to your idea, and it really takes you much further away than indicated. I'd be interested in anything else you have to say on this subject. Let me know what you think.

I'd like to make a quick comment in response to both Echo Mirage & valadaar. I know I used AD&D to illustrate this power. I did so because for one, in my opinion, magic seems to fit the fantasy setting a little better than most other settings and two, because in my experience, almost everyone I know who role plays has at least some experience with AD&D, I thought of it as the common denominator among role players and the most understandable way to share the idea. Please understand that I did not intend to make this an AD&D magic system only. I think it could be modified and fit well with any role playing system with an existing magical component. Thanks for your attention. Go to Comment

A fine response. This is going to be a bit for me to digest, but I thank you. Go to Comment

Very nice. I'd go a different route with the eighth time, basically a cannibalistic version of the magical "passing through the Abyss." Anyway still a cool concept. Reminds me of a passage from the Book of the Law:

"Worship me with fire & blood; worship me with swords & with spears. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat!" Go to Comment

Once it gets to a location you wouldn't want to destroy it for fear of its cargo being released in a huge cloud. Key would be getting to these early. The army/support unit of this one has me envisioning controlled zombie wars. Not what I am used to :) Go to Comment

A zombie support unit? Well, if you are building undead armies, why the heck not! Makes an amusing "medic" unit for the troops. :) Go to Comment

And oh, then there is the Marshland: a strangely thick fog, that slows down all living beings in it down to the speed of zombies. Nothing like competing on even ground. :-> Go to Comment

Apocalyptic Zombie?

Still an interesting concept if you necromancers like pushing the edge of their own magical technology. The question is... why would they?

I mean they are more effective than regular zombies, as a zombie support role. Why would they make these rather than just get a zombie bull or a bigger zombie creature? Go to Comment

Nice, and by nice I mean it has the potential to be stomach turningly disgusting. I love the name too, zombie gravy! Go to Comment

Cool, a "30" entry expanded and then some!

Moon's question is a good one, but I have enough juicy details here to use these guys.

This is a sweet paragraph!

"A Gravyman is created to have it's giant baglike stomach filled with one of a number of different possible potions. The zombie breathes in air, the air mixes with the potion, and a gas is released. The four lungs help produce a whole lot of the gas really quickly and belch it out making a large cloud in moments. The gas produced is what makes a Gravyman worth making." Go to Comment

I see a little Left 4 Dead here as well, but only a little. You have added so much beyond that trace and the name - Gravyman - is suitably disturbing.

Well done sir!

some errors in the post:

s/The zombie has a soul purpose of/The zombie has the sole purpose of/g
s/undead within it's vacinity/undead within its vicinity/g

Otherwise a nice new undead! I like the different payloads and possible uses. The Mirror Image and Hallucinatory gases are what I'd like to throw my players into. Good job on a suitably repulsive undead! I can see a whole range of further zombie support coming into play. Lots of cool ideas flowing into my brain from this. Cool!
