I think you missed my second set of questions from yesterday, by the way.

Two more questions have sprung to my mind: do you have a general idea as to what sort of technology level the setting is at, and how prevalent magic is? Should I imagine that there are human wizards of the generic fantasy sort and abundant forms of magic besides the necromantic variety?

My rough and unfinished CS. Just something to give everyone an idea of. Checking in if it's okay.

Sorry! Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still alive! Something came up that needed my full attention for the past 36 hours. But I am back at this. Will give the new apps a thorough read over the next 10 hours. OOC coming soon. Excited to see what everyone's brought to the table. Cheers!

Apologies for the delay.

Technology level is late medieval but without gunpowder. Crossbows, ballistae, and plate armor are high technology. Now that Eagoth has permitted all manner of previously forbidden arts, the undead have discovered some new technologies. Extremely primitive electrical experiments allow for crude resuscitations and galvanization of dead flesh. Only very sophisticated meatworks like those in Comiriom and Necron will have access to this very cutting edge technology. Electricity is too poorly understood to power lights or machines. Basically, electrical understanding in this setting consists of “haha, bzzzt make dead thing move”.

Will get to new apps in a bit.

Excited to have our first ghoul on board. I like how we know next to nothing about him. I'm looking forward to having you tease Razzak's backstory over the posts.

Always an honor to have you with us. I love the backstory and the implications for plot arcs. He's already inspired some of the backstory for the character I have been brainstorming.

Very interesting to include orcs. I had never really considered other races in the undead dominion. I am really interested that Urgun has come to see Eagoth as a messianic figure. My character will have come to a similar conclusion, but by an altogether different manner. Kind of curious how Urgun didn't end up in the zombie gulag for letting living combatants flee.

All the apps posted so far are wholeheartedly accepted. Please feel free to post in character once the thread is up. It will be posted in Advanced, as the interest check that I cross-posted in the NRP Interest Check section has inspired... well, no interest. Whatever, forget those guys.

Keep your eyes peeled for the OOC thread soon. I will start on that next.
