Psi Wars: Environments of Broken Communion: Sensations of Death

Following up on my last post, I have suggestions for imagery, sounds, and other sensations that you can use to describe an environment of Deathly Broken Communion. Enjoy!


  • Ruins, wrecked starships, other human constructions in a state of disrepair
  • Iconography of death (skulls, bones, decaying flesh)
  • Lack of color, stark whites and stark blacks
  • Broken down machinery (vehicles, computers)
  • Dust, mold, and rot, especially covering artifacts of civilization


  • Silence (including natural sounds, like animals and the wind)
  • Howling or moaning winds
  • Calls of carrion beasts, like jackals and vultures
  • Phantom battle sounds, screaming, and other sounds without obvious source
  • Crunching and snapping sounds, like breaking bones


  • Rot and decaying flesh
  • Formaldehyde and other embalming agents
  • Sulfur, rotting eggs


  • Dry, crumbling textures, like dust
  • Soft, easily torn textiles
  • Hard, brittle bones
  • Soft and wet slimes, rotted wood
  • Icy chills
