Brass Men are one of the two versions of 'good' undeath. If the proper spell is cast to preserve bits of a dead(normally, warrior) the person can live on. A brass clockwork body is made and parts of the corpse are used to animate it. Normally the brain, one ear and one eye are all that is needed to bring the person back to a state of unlife. The brain is perfectly preserved and the brass man is free willed. Usually the lack of hormones gives the brass man a 'flatter' personality in undeath. Arms and legs are not used as the brass body is far more durable.

Very clear and accessible, good one.
Gave me good visuals!
I like the brain, eye, and ear detail. Gives them a touch of the tragic.
I agree with Strolen that I like the visual. I might be inclined to make it technological undeath rather than requiring a spell, but that's an easy adjustment.
I also find the eye/ear/brain thing interesting, in that it to some degree suggests different vulnerabilities for a brass man than for a normal human. Sure he has no heart, but maybe if you cut his ear off....
Oh yes, and I meant to say that you have to actually give it the robot freetext! That's part of the point!
An interesting way of reanimating people.
Not bad 100. Like it!
