Docry Emma


The Barbaric vampire/demonic tyrant Bankskin is responsible for raising humans as livestock for his evil minions. The once prosperous valley has now turned into a tainted death hole fit for no one.

In the great valley of Docry Emma hidden by the mists and ignorance to other people’s plights is a great hidden secret. Hundreds of years ago, barbaric tribes settled into the valley and were led by their great leader, Bankskin, who made them prosperous and offered them blood sport to quell their anarchic instincts.

Later on a small war between Demons and Vampires rocked the lives of the tribes. Bankskin went to speak with the leaders of the Vampires and turned the barbarian tribes to the vampiric cause. Bankskin then began wearing a fanged mask and slaughtered the demonic enemies. Vampires would frequently visit the villages and become well known to the villagers. When the war had been finally won the demons had been defeated and forced to live as slaves to the vampires and barbarians.

Life continued well for all tribes and vampires until the demons started secretly impregnating the women, creating a half-breed demon/human hybrid. The vampires commanded these children be killed but Bankskin would not allow it. In a single betrayal unknown to anyone except for Bankskin himself, the entire High Vampire consul was killed by Bankskin in a single fight.

Soon Bankskiin was revealed to have gained a exchange of Vampire and Demon powers under his control, his mask his central power source. Bankskin needed blood, along with many of the barbarians who had become vampires themselves, and the half demon children needed raw man flesh to maintain their existence. Bankskin herded all the normal humans into a central village and forced them to live in wretched huts and fed to the vampires and half demons like livestock.

Bankskin and his followers now add anyone foolish enough to enter their valley to their livestock. The people live in two central ‘Villages’ which are not guarded but frequently visited by guards, the people live in constant fear and are to despaired to flee or attempt a rebellion.  Bankskin lives in a great granite stone abbey where he reigns supreme over all.
The ruins of the old Demon fortress till stand and are used to keep the Demon children in check. The rivers and lakes have been mysteriously tainted putrid and black from the concentration of evil in the environment. No animals except for elk and bear live in this region, and they are far and few. A black species of Kappa have grown in the rivers and the skies are dotted with giant vultures.

There is a small talk of rebellion against Bankskin, a group of young kids launch attacks against him, but are almost always beaten down back into hiding.

NOTE- My friend just mentioned to me that this setting sounds alot like the storyline to Underworld. I did not know this when writing this setting for i have never seen the movie.

This is an interesting, if potentially difficult plot to handle. The idea of a running war between vampires and demons is certainly out there, but it has potential, especially if you can give it some sort of sympathetic angle.

BTW, I play Vampire/Werewolf, and I think with the exception of Kate Beckinsdale, the movie sucked and bordered between insipid and stupid. Liquid UV?

Perhaps there could be members of the afflicted who are looking to redeem themselves, their human soul/essence/heart trying to overcome the tainted essence of undeath or the demonic blood in their veins. Or, perhaps a high ranking vampire, blood lineage of Bankskin has decided to rebel as the barbarians, having defeated their demonic foes, have lost their barbarian heritage and won't play the hound to the vampire master.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
