Orrorsh should drop a Maelstrom Bridge into New Mexico - Old West / Horror

Postby LexAmissa » Sun Apr 14, 2019 4:06 pm

Just a thought, but I think it would be really cool if Orrorsh dropped a Maelstrom bridge into New Mexico and created an Old West / Horror cosm. The tech axioms between Victorian and Old West are essentially the same - its just that culturally it would manifest differently in the Southwest United States.

I might have to do this with my campaign.

This makes perfect sense! Have it happen on the Day of the Dead, watch all the dressed up people transform and then watch the poor humans scream!!! <insert maniacal laughter here>

The ol' hangin' tree down past the sheriff's office is obviously a Nightmare Tree...

I dig it. Would love to see this for the Orrorsh book. Maybe the Gaunt Man just take a relatively small area because he wants something from that location, a particular eternity shard or maybe the location itself is important enough strategically to drop a bridge there. Maybe he wants to unnerve Baruk Kaah or micromanage him a little more. Lots of reasons to expand there. Whatever. The outcome is what is cool, the Old West with a horror twist.

That's my plan for a Deadlands Realm, with Raven as the Gaunt Man's Lieutenant.

That's a cool idea. Plus could be subtler than dropping a bridge. Maybe have a stranger with no name show up from Jonestown on Gaea who has been looking for the Gaunt Man's secret canyon fortress.

Yeah, a haunted canyon that isn't on any map, and IS the bridge.

For my next episode I was planning on sending the team to New Orleans where "strange things are afoot" with a single triangle of Orrorsh where they can try their first stelae removal. I was envisioning the area to be victorian-level french and Cajun.

This is an awesome idea. I may steal it borrow liberally.
