I want to personally thank you for that post about Taako having to deal with a bunch of necromancy bullshit and just being like barely fazed by it seriously those scenarios of "You picked the absolute worst target for your horror movie bullshit you don't even know" are MY JAM! I love them so much! And Taako is the perfect character to star in these scenarios bc not only does he have The Most arcane power but also his family connections are worst case scenario for anyone trying to mess with him
Thank you so much! I’m so glad that you liked it! It honestly started as a silly thought I had - a song came on and I thought of fnaf and had the realization that not only was that totally a possibility in this world after Lucas’s robots, it would also be hilariously easy to deal with for Taako. And then I just had… more ideas.
I just really love the idea of these people underestimating Taako and being so hilariously over the top about everything? I mean if your chosen form of magic is raising the dead you’re not gonna half-ass the aesthetic, right? And if you’re going to continue to break the laws of death even knowing that there’s a trio of bounty hunter reapers who are really good at their job, you’re probably going to go all out and are also maybe not going to make the best choices. He’s powerful all on his own and even if you get the upper hand his whole family is after you, what are you thinking. So essentially, all of the horror stories are just… cultists and liches and such being really extra and doing a terrible job of it. (Which is a great way to take the horror out of horror stories, honestly; just imagine Taako seeing this scary thing, being unimpressed, and blasting the fuck out of it.)
Plus, can you imagine? Taako finally lives out his life and is ready to join his family on the job, and there’s no training or preparation to go through - he’s assigned to missions from day one because he’s been dealing with this shit for hundreds of years already.
