The Komanche Horse

By:

In the dawn of mankind, a fearsome and malign god known as the Komanche Horse, an ancient deity of unimaginable evil, was venerated with skulls and blood; unbeknownst to most, it and its vile cult remain…

Appearance
The Komanche Horse, also called the Devouring Horse, Consumer of Men, and It Which Pounds Into Dust, is a hideous and unbelievable creature. A malign deity from the Outer World, it descended to the Earth and cast its dark net over men the world over.

There are many depictions of the demonic deity. Most commonly, the Horse is depicted as a withered and skeletal human corpse topped with the shriveled skull of a horse. Typically, those who paint the Horse use bright, clashing, vaguely disturbing shades- the glowing white-green of rotting gangrenous flesh, the virulent pink of an infected wound, the yellow-beige of bleached bones, the lustrous red-brown of a heavy bloodstain. Nearly as often, the Komanche Horse’s presence is represented by the hollow and skeletal corpse of a horse, or better yet, one whose skin has mummified like parchment around its dry bones.

Komanche? Isn't that a bit too obviously Native American, it's only one letter different from Comanche. Other than that I think it is pretty cool since most consider the horse to be a symbol of fertility, strength and all sorts of other good stuff.

Hehe. CP isn't too vague about his native american /mesoamerican influences. That is for sure.

Seems like he abandoned this one though!

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
