Why would the lich do that to Linn? The threat was out of the way, and these was no more use for the fellow - let the poor guy die in peace! :p
Khalran is a very understanding undead monstrosity. Some of his motivation for destroying life is simply that he is bored of the stupidity of everyone. He is a problem solver and simply is trying to make the world more efficient.

As for the sword; yeah, it's a pretty straight forward, mundane (and mostly useless from a pc's point of view) kind of object, and that's how I wanted it to be. This item is more about the story; the perverted, wasted result of what could have been a legendary weapon and story, if not for the hubris of man. It's a lesson in humility, and also a vivid reminder that life is not a story book, and things do not always work out for the good guys. Go to Comment

Interesting. I think the story really illustrates your inspiration: the Grand Hero who comes charging in against the Undead Lord, waving a sword and shouting the names of his gods. I like that aspect, the corruption of (blindly naive) good.

As for its actual magic effects, it seems almost mundane from a necromancy standpoint. But that doesn't bother me much, as I like the story a lot. Khalran seems a very practical sort of lich, which I can appreciate. Go to Comment

"Evil will always win cause good is dumb."

A straight up 2nd generation fantasy tool written with self-concious humor and flair. I enjoyed it well more than idea or content alone merited. Go to Comment

Could the PCs/villain fix the sword, so that it could be used to kill and resurrect the undead wielder?

I could see how this would be useful (and annoying, from the PCs perspective). The backstory is nice, though getting continuously crushed by a load of bricks would be horrible. I could see sadistic kings using it to torture someone to death, and then repeat...

Why didnt the lich do that to linn? Go to Comment

Actually, you're right Mourn - I was making them both at the same time as hidden subs and linked them because I had originally meant to make Rasp create the Corpsemaker, too - but the story didn't end up going that way. I'll get rid of the links now! Go to Comment

Cool idea. Not utterly original as Cheka points out but definitely different, I like it. I would have liked more of a connection to the corpsemaker since the two are linked but that is a minor issue and more personal than effectual. Go to Comment

Interesting take on stronger zombies. I wonder what might happen to a vampire who drank the stuff. Would he try to suck the steel from armor? Would it give him iron fangs? Go to Comment

A great item to beef up minor undead. Probably simpler to have the undead wear the armor rather then eat it though :P

At first it almost seems to unrealistic and over powered. The ability to create zombies at will by piecing them together like a child's play toy.

That being said. I gruesomely love it. On first reading I said a loud this needed to be under the undead freetext and lo and behold it is. And a Cult quest at that. I'm failing at my own mastery of my Cult of the Dead.

Aside from my minor gripe, I would tend to use it as the corpses would pull free from its body when enough parts amassed together in a single spot spilling forth undead to protect it solely for no other purpose.

A great and creepy monster indeed. I personally wouldn't make it as impossible to destroy as it sounds as an end boss but still creepy and memorable when one brings one of these out.

Kudos. Go to Comment
