GM Dictionary: The Dead #11
This month we look at the various burial places of the world! What better way to kick off a series during October!?
In communities that had nowhere to store the dead before a funeral, cemeteries would have a lychgate which was a roofed gateway where the body was kept. This would be attended against body snatchers, but the roof would help keep weather from the body until services.
This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
