You won't have seen them yet, but there are a group of undead Orcs (well, mainly Orcs) living just inside the fringes of the southern Mists, north of the Cartashian Woods who share similarities with your entry.
Perhaps you could ask Azzy to let you see the section I sent her about them, so as to keep That-Which-Devours satisfactorily different? Just so folks don't get confused between the two, eh?  ;)

Can I see them too, because undead orc was one of the ideas I was mulling about in my addled mind for the sleeper in the Snow.  The Frozen Wastes would have no shortage of undead orc/Remusians scattered about.  So, I want to stay different in this as well.

Ummmmm  (looks confused)

Aren't all orcs  'undead'?  As in, alive?   And aren't your Remusians walking around and breathing?

If you wanted to specify DEAD orcs and DEAD barbarians, I could see that...

;P

That would be NONdead you're referring to my dear bard. Undead is about the same as unliving.

Undead refers to once living beings who are dead in body and spirit, but who continue to walk around as if alive. Some weak undead are capable of speech or rational thought while some are mindless walking corpses ie zombies.

As to how to classify the Mists walking dead orc clan is still being decided. How much sentience do we give them? The Mists themselves give these once dead orcs "life" now, so the options are pretty open just how the Mists do this. But that's the fun, isn't it?

Sounds absolutely horrible; can I have it as a mount for my Co'orhem/Kasumarii character? Please? Pretty please in sundae form sprinkled with nuts and a cherry on top?

And therein lies my dilemma in what to pick for my Masterwork.

I have 2 options: The Cha'Morta-oc, or Hell'wrung. Both appeal to me as a Masterwork, but both also have their problems. Hell'wrung would probably require more than one entry to fully do justice to my vision of it, and the Cha'Morta (even though they were originally of my creation) need a bit of 'defining' before I can take them further.

Helpful suggestions would be, well, helpful.  grin

Your talent, in my opinion, lies in your ability to santharianise humour- something I personally find very difficult and as such something I genuinely admire about you Tharoc. Perhaps you could find a way to incorporate your pure hilarity into an entry- A person entry perhaps?

A masterwork should display your virtue, and since you are gifted in the virtue of the comic my advice would be to envision a simple but well-conceived idea that you can execute perfectly according to your talents, not what is the norm.

Any help?

Well...its not called a Masterwork for nothing...it may take a bit of creativity and work (imagine doing a tribe) but that's what's fun about it.

Best thing to do it start the entry and defining it will come as you write. I re-wrote the Kaaer several times during writing before I was happy with it. It comes to you as you go. I would define it yourself. I am leaning more towards defining the Cha'Morta-oc as a clan and not a bestiary.
