Is there anything that limits how many times this can be used in a set amount of time, it wouldnt take much for a single rogue to turn a town into a raging cauldron of paranoia as the newest zombie plague starts spreading, or turn a small village into the Village of the Rotting Dead Go to Comment

Very dark. The only problem I see is that she would infect herself while trying to stab the fetus.

As for the village of the rotting dead,yes - the potential for abuse helps make this a dangerous item and why a major plot could be wrapped around it. It could be used as a subject in a fantasy thriller. Go to Comment

I think the best part of this sub is the disturbing little story at the beginning. I'm taking notes--this is where evil artifacts come from. The simplicity is nice, too. It's what you get when you cross needle + undead. I can imagine a bad guy wielding one of these, poking people that annoy him, and leaving a trail of demi-zombies in his wake. Or a bunch of animals in the forest. Could you use it to make an army of zombies by sewing bags over the heads of some villagers?

I've tried, but I still can't imagine sewing anything on to a wall. Go to Comment

So sad for him to be outcast by his mother. A typical poor orphan story where they grow up into greatness. Oh, wait, no its not. This is a twisted zombie child playing with his human food!

Not sure where you come up with this stuff, and so quickly, but I like it! Go to Comment

Shadoweagle's comment on 2012-11-24 08:17 PM
Scable is not meant to be a creature of particular physical strength, although he would be a tad stronger than humans. He is meant more to add a psycological element into a scenario. It would take more effort to kill him than it would a normal human, but by no means is he meant to be an invincible monster - his best defence is going undected by the general populace.

As for holy places and clerical powers and such - I hadn't actually considered it. But I would say that Scable's human side would provide him with a high resistance to typical holy powers and sanctuaries, however he may naturally avoid those places because the undead part of him would make him feel wrong for being there. I'd like to think priests,necromancers and such would still not be able to notice Scable - or perhaps only detect a faint sense of wrongness around - because Scable's existence is still as an enigma to the holy or unholy, and their brains would still reject the idea of it.

He would have to eat perhaps every several months to keep his living flesh regenerating, lest he will rot away. It's not in Scable's nature to go caveman on a bloke and start eating, even though his being undetected would aid him in that - his instinct is to make the situation as safe for him as possible - so to break the mind of his prey so they don't fight back, plus isolate themselves would be ideal for him.
Although I wouldn't say that he is beyond Flights of fury that will go against his instincts and judgement; especially if it's a female involved and he is feeling particularly... amorous.

Good questions, Scras! There's a lot I hadn't considered in this - i'm still a bit rusty, I fear. Go to Comment

I like the functionality of Scable's borderline Life condition, how his skin feels like clothing and how by being such an abomination that common folk will go out of their way to avoid him. I do have a few questions:

You have stated that Scable is both alive and undead, can he be killed by mundane means? If so, it would seem to make him a fairly weak sort of undead (which I am fine with, just want to clarify)

What about clerics, holy places, clerical turning abilities, and other banes of the undead? Will be a holy priest or an evil priest be affected the same way by his natural obfuscation? Does Scable avoid churches and graveyards?

Dietary concerns: how often does Scable have to eat to maintain himself? Does he have to follow his danse macabre for each victim or can on occasion can he say screw it, knock someone out with a rock and start eating them unconscious? Go to Comment

An interesting being - I could see him being used as an NPC in an appropriately dark settings, perhaps as a rather odd 'fixer'. His 'diet' being simply a vice one would need to be aware of when dealing with him.

He could be sought by necromancers if they were made aware of his existence - his natural 'cloaking' power being something they would seek to emulate for their own undead assassins.

I would never use this guy as a session's focus, but he makes an appropriately creepy thing to have lurking in the dark corners of a city. Things that go bump in the night should NOT be things you expect. He fits the bill, is what I'm saying. He's the boogeyman, director's cut.

Also, eww. Zombie-abortion rapist man. Go to Comment

The tale does draw you in, well written, making her quite memorable. Zombirth, as Forganthus calls it....this is a new concept for me as far as undead begetting, and I Iove it. Deliciously gruesome! Go to Comment

Forganthus's comment on 2012-11-22 05:22 PM
Zombirth! Why not?

I see two main ideas here--a woman with wild necromantic talent who can take life from many to give undeath to a singular thing, and necroparturition (which is awesome). I think this makes a better story than something to inject into an tabletop game. I know that's not the only standard to judge a sub, but it's mine. Players would only learn this stuff through exposition and monologue, which is fine, but there's no quick hook. This is an decent NPC with a great backstory. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2008-05-29 01:33 PM
Really, he is not a lifeform, so to speak. This is an NPC. I guess the unofficial difference being sentience and that he started as a person.

You are a bit rusty. It is a bit hard to read in spots and could use some spacing and formatting. (And yes, the linking would be nice.) Edit it through and it should be fine.

Other than that, classic you. Lots of story, interesting idea, and generally interesting. Go to Comment

I would guess it wouldn't. I dont know how i overlooked this, but it is very nice. I like the entire vibe of Axtrami, and the Ouzquin Dremorix are captivating desert folk. Nice touch with the first hemisa. Go to Comment
