Photos of Toxic Tartary, my Carcosa

I have a dozen half-written posts here, and Beedo reminded me of my pirate ship game (everyone has one, right?) but I just wanna post some lazy pictures of my current off-center Carcosa obsession.

via retronaut, where they’re called “Mongolia in Color, 1913.” The woman sentenced to death by starvation is particularly apposite, but there are also representatives of the tyrannical Yellow Palace, and a tribesman taking aim with his radium jezzail. By far the scariest thing out of all these is the Yellow Palace “gate.” The tribesmen know all about these buggers, Babayaga-ing around at night, abducting people with their whole “candle in the darkness” routine. Although nobody knows where the abducted people go.

Ambiguity about tech level is key to the Toxic Tartary vibe.

Missile silos are made out of carefully-laid mudbrick. Those guards on the palace wall might have low-light goggles or just decorated hide headdresses or maybe magic makes those badly-tanned hides see in the dark.

and tomb forms are everywhere – even piles of carpets might have secondary uses.

…either guarding the Earth Door or keeping stuff in…

    Based on my study, after a in foreclosure home is available at a bidding, it is common to the borrower in order to still have the remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage loan. There are many loan merchants who seek to have all service fees and liens paid off by the next buyer. On the other hand, depending on particular programs, restrictions, and state guidelines there may be many loans which are not easily fixed through the switch of lending products. Therefore, the obligation still lies on the customer that has acquired his or her property foreclosed on. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this web site.
