Can I just say that out of all of this, I like the idea of the "Lost" Plot most. The thought of the only way to kill the zombies is by shattering that which was their 'life' while they were alive. Very nice!
On top of all that: A good, solid mythical weapon: I can imagine only several places that this item could be in current time: Unused, in a temple devoted to Axtrami. Lost somewhere in or beneath the desert; perhaps at the site of a great battlefield. Stolen and hoarded by the "Sect of the shattered orb". Or in a foreigners private collection of artefacts, after having stolen it from the Ouzquin Dremorix at one stage.
Anyway. I know my vote is a bit biased. Either way, 4.5/5. Go to Comment
Kinda nifty. You always need at least one giant earthworm... I like the way that the Cult of Gaia is somewhat on the right track, in a lopsided sort of way. It's entirely possible, in fact probable, that some of the microplants and other things that live in symbiosis with the Worm either were shed or evolved to a point where they didn't need the Worm any more... thus giving rise to some types of plants.

I checked. I can't find one either. It is a wonderfully well written cliche with some nice elements. Again, I either would of made it a scroll so I could add related things (like the Cult which seems to dominate the write up) or made the cult a seperate linked post. Go to Comment
Recently, agents of a necromancer's guild known as the Guild of Morticians have been seen slinking around the graveyards in the metropolis of Jeffsport. They have been seen with many small undead creatures, leading to speculation that someone may be digging up the corpses and selling them to the Guild of Morticians. The Jeffsport Civil Authorities Office and various splinter groups thereof, including the famous Blue Lampsmen (the Jeffsport city guard), have issued a bounty of 100 silver pieces for information leading to the capture of whoever is selling the corpses to the necromancers, and a 30 gold piece bounty on any member of the Guild of Morticians.
