A long, blood encrusted hemp rope, tied into a hangman’s knot.
Thinking that a criminals lot in life should continue for a bit into the next, the magistrate of a small fishing village requested that this item be forged to quell the locals (And a few pirates) into a stronger obedience towards the law.
It is kept by the local executioner, Solomon Gardener.
It turns it’s victims into zombie servants. These zombies are mentally aware, yet incapable of doing anything but the commands, and wishes of the rope’s master.
The zombies are usually used in community tasks, such as farming, construction, and sometimes defense.
It’s activation command word is "Compressione", it’s deactivation word (In the case of those that have "served" their time) is "Allenti".
