Part of what I feel is essential to the Japanese Horror Forest setting is undead. As in, the human population is generally indifferent to them, and they use them to do things. Vanquished enemies, probably, as ugly as that is.

This is a desperate land. There aren't a lot of people. There are a lot of demons and horrors at the doorstep. And necromantic magic is readily available. And I also want to separate the idea of ghost in the Japanese sense (e.g., onryo) from a deliberately animated body without a "ghost." What I mean is that a ghost, an agent, is not the same as a piece of flesh executing a program, which would engender neither fear nor reverence. It's just a ... robot, basically.

So undead can be enemies, but aren't in themselves to be feared.

Saw this style guide by Grant Snider on FB and immediately thought of +Karen Conlin, who I’m sure has seen this already.

It’s true! Ruinous Palace of the Metegorgos is the Deal of the Day today!!! Check it out!

(The part about paying well is a lie however; Evey and Sam get paid in shucks of corn.)
