Pictures from Ealderde

Though the Great War diminshed its importance to the City and the New World, the Old World continues:

Despite the ever-present poison, mutagenic fog and periodic morlock assaults, the surviving people of Lugdun seldom fail to take part in traditional Godsday worship services.

Soldiers in the Imperial Staarkish Army on the day the Great War began with one of their walkers.

Hellhounds--summoned and bound by military sorcerers during the war--now stalk the wastes in Eastern Ealderde.

Hard times have led people to turn to perverse old religions out of desperation. Here, witchcraft is lampooned in a racy stage show in Metropolis, but the fear of these cults is very real.

Since Korambeck had to relinquish its hold over the Middle East, the Jinn (beings of smokeless fire) have reasserted their rule over much of the region. There are rumors they’re even rebuilding their fabled capital lost Irem of the Pillars.

That is one big ass jinn. And love that walker....naked women aren't too shabby either.

I volunteer to do some, uh, "research" on the covens of topless witches. I will not rest until a thorough and exhaustive study has been done. I feel that I owe it to my community. Or something.

Great images - love the gas mask wearing church organist! I think I've been to a similar service a long time ago, though regrettably, I didn't have a mask of my own.

@Tim - Thanks. I thought the ladies were better than big ass naked jinn.

@Christian - I'll forward your CV to the appropriate officials. ;)

@ze_bulette - But did you inhale? ;)

Great walker and hellbeast, nicely done.

Thanks, though I have to give credit to the original artists for the inspiration. :)

I bet good money that the organist is the one from from Kaizer's Orchestra. If it is, yes, the music should work quite well with The City. If not, I'd really like to know what other band uses that imagery.

Could be. It wasn't sourced where I fould it in the wilds of the internet.

Hellhounds stalk the wastes, get your fire retardant underwear out for those big boys!
Awesome stuff!
