Hello. I was wondering if some one here could help me find something. I'm looking for a book with a particular scenario blurb in. I remember reading a scenario/adventure hook/idea one time that went something like this:

One of the PCs receives a letter that some one they care about has been kidnapped. They and the party investigate, only to find that the person in question has been taken to a harem that specializes in zombie harem girls made to order. This of course puts the party in a position of confronting the necromancer or cleric in charge and finding a way to save their friend, destroying the entire operation, or perhaps taking over the action.


I thought originally that it was in some 2E AD&D book, but after spending a week trolling through my collection I've come up empty handed. I know that this isn't a typical question, but I am hoping that between all of us and the different books we come in contact with we might be able to figure it out.

I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Ok, I'll bite despite the poorly hidden clues... Never heard of it, not to say it doesnt exist, but it sounds a bit shite if I'm honest...  :roll:

Well, let's see, "troll" in the username, and "trolling" in the message, hmmmm...

That's my take on it.
A question that should be over on DF, being asked here.
It seems like BS.

I don't have a problem with the question being asked here, but I'd agree that inquiring at dragonsfoot.org would be more likely to provide a quick result.

... and I'd figure anyone with a collection and a search engine would be able to make that same mental leap.

I12: Egg of the Phoenix has a similar, though not exact, scenario. The zombies made in it are for manual labor or clerical (not the spellcasting type) work... though, pleasure uses would not be impossible.

Same poster, same question over on Enworld:

http://www.enworld.org/forum/general-rp ... nario.html

Doesnt seem like a question a "troll" would ask to me.

This is the first time I have heard some one actually use the term "troll" in reference to some one asking a question they feel is extraneous. I've heard insults on such a person's intelligence, as well as various unrelated insults, but never an actual accusation of trolling. It is within the confines of the definition, however,  so as it is not an error I can't take issue with it.

I'm also not sure how having a search engine would lead some one to understand that a forum he had only heard of recently would be better suited to trying to find a book he cannot place then a forum that is dedicated to collectors of books of the same genre.

In any case, I only posted the question here because it was suggested for me to do so by one of the individuals at the enworld.org forums. I assumed that he was speaking as some one who had at least participated in this community and that his suggestion was an indication that my question would be accepted. Though, as I'm sure one of you would point out, there is the oft-quoted passage about those that assume.

As to my name, well, it's just a permutation of a real-world nickname: Kontrol (spelling would take some explaining, but it is correct for this instance). However, there is either a very active internet patron with the same name or a bot that uses it, because I found some time ago that it is active in many computer-related forums. As such, I altered it into a form I was unlike to find else where. I just chose to keep using on any forums. Honestly, if my intent was to "troll" I wouldn't give you such an easy shot for jokes.

As to the question being "shite"... well, that depends on the intent of the word. If you mean it as I take it, that the whole question is bollocks, then I can tell you that it is not so. You are welcome to your opinion, however. This is something that stuck in my mind, associated with a desert setting, for some time. Truth be told, given the fact that no one in one of the largest rpg forums nor a group of collectors has ever heard of it, I believe that it must have come from group of small press 3E books that I acquired from friends during 2000-2003 and were destroyed a few years ago. One would assume that if it were anything more widely distributed some one else would have it.


Serleran, I pulled my copy of Egg of the Phoenix. At first the artwork looked familiar, but no dice. I appreciate the suggestion though.

Also, thanks King.

The "shite" comment was aimed at the module storyline, not your question, just to clarify.

If it was intended for D&D, then I am at a loss but I can honestly say there are a few Shadowrun hooks with that sort of plot line, though they do not have "clerics" or "necromancers" in the game.

Welcome to the Acaeum, Khantrol.  :)  You've narrowly missed having your head nailed to the floor, so that will need to be done at some future date.   :D

That was me:  I thought someone else might remember or have heard of such a book, even though it didn't ring any bells to me.

I had thought it was: Pleasure Palace of the Bethumian Demon Whore from XRP, but I don't think so.

I actually think his question drew considerable consideration and worthwhile thoughts.  I probably would have suggested the same thing. Nobody wears kid gloves around here, so what's new?  8)
