This is freaking awesome. I love it. It feels like a mix of the Mortuary in Planescape, the steampunk-ish feel of China Mieville's books, and a certain eerie, creepily morbid touch special to it. The visual image of it hanging on the skyline like a diseased, rotting tree stump is arresting, and the way the interior is described gives a good feel for it.
The aspects of how the Caretakers feel soiled, and some strive to absolve themselves somehow, gives it a more real feeling, as well, with ordinary folks trying not to let their job get to them... Go to Comment
Ah, the latest addition in an expanding setting! A great one as well, I should mention that I will GM a session in the Locastus setting tomorrow and the tower will be one of the locastions featured. This write has what I expected of it when I read the headline. But I feel that it is missing something, that little extra. Hmmm(need to think about that), but still- a great submission that recives a high score from me. Go to Comment
A zombie factory chock full of lovely detail! I like the bit about the Caretakers feeling "soiled" and seeking to be absolved. Also like the Body Praxis detail. You know, I kinda agree with Mike. There is something "sexy" missing, but I dont know what it may be.
Val: I have this notion that the soul must be kept away from the Deader, otherwise it will turn into a real, bloodthirsty undead. I think the Deaders are more like golems than zombies, the makers just make use of a thing with all the right joints and so on, which would otherwise be expensive to make.... Go to Comment
First of all, let me say that I love the name! And while there was nothing wrong with the write-up I felt that it was somehow lacking. More like a frame for something then the actual "painting". It shows much promise though, and hints at some great ideas.
This could be expanded, and I would love it to be!
(P.S- As Valadaar, my vote is a placeholder until you expand it.) Go to Comment
Good bones for a location, but currently somewhat missing the meat. You mentioned in chat that you would be changing that in time, so this vote is a placeholder - I'll change it as needed. Go to Comment
OK, ladies and gentlemen, I´ve added a map to this sub as well.
Sadly, it has to be a linked image, since our gallery ain´t accepting uploads at the moment.
As soon as it works again, I´ll put the map up as a nice thumbnail.
Hope you´ll like it!

Somehow, someway, a band of gnomes learns how to be ninjas. In fine gnomish style, they open an academy to teach this art to other gnomes. Wacky Hijinks ensue. Or the gnomes become some of the finest assassins in the land. Or both.
