Towerborn are now open-source. The Towerborn are my interpretation of a Newborn proxy. They are once-humans, taken by the Manufactured Newborn. Their bodies are then repurposed, taken apart, filled with new, better parts, and put back together. These machine-people appear almost completely normal, bar a few differences (ticking noises, the sound of metal when they move). They also posses a limited ability to assimilate machinery into themselves, like their master. The Towerborn act as scouts, finding places for the newborn to best absorb new material.
Not even sure it's a good idea... Just putting it out there for people to build on if they wish.
A man in a gas mask. A man without a face. A face without a man. A shadow of your former self. A boy in isolation. A girl who pulls the strings. A man who is a dog. A dog made of men. A man who has our pasts. A blur in our perception. A convocation of birds. A thing with ill will. A judge in the sun. A beast below.
Also, an OOG Tumblr where I do a whole lot of stuff. I might talk about my blogs, the Mythos in general, or the vlog my brother is planning. Or I might blather on forever about other stuff and reblog random shit from everywhere. Whatever floats my boat, basically.

Here is a quick rundown of Jester's cronies, the Misfits:
They are five Dolls who were given to Jester by the Wooden Girl. They are all male. Jester named them himself. He rarely uses them in the field, as he prefers to do things himself, but he does deploy them to aid in his more complex games and "jokes".
Lady: 17 years old. Jester castrated him and makes him dress in bright pink clothes. Lady is usually used to flirt with people and put them off guard... or just for the lulz.
Mr. Bun: 34 years old. He's a big hulking brute of a man. Jester sewed his lips shut, except for a small opening in the middle, big enough for a straw.
Crybaby: 79 years old. He's a spry old man who's a bit more resistant to being a doll than most. Occasionally, he's able to sort of break free... but all he's able to do is sob with heartbreak and frustration. Jester thinks that's funny.
Face: 25 years old. An utterly average man with no personality to speak of. Jester calls him "Face" because he has one, that's pretty much all you can really say to describe him.
Gigglepuss: 29 years old. A sadomasochist who's covered in self-inflicted scars, and giggles like crazy whenever he receives or inflicts pain.

The Panopticon is open source. Just don't go crazy with them - they are smart and capable, but consider it their job to make sure that the "Slender Man meme-complex" (and the other Fears) is eradicated...through the use of a counter-meme ("This is the best of all possible worlds") and "reeducation."

If anyone is interested Detective Bowie (from my Manufactured Newborn story here) is available as a member of an SMSC like group from the founding of the Pinkertons in 1850 until the events of the story in June of 1855. The organization he worked for continued claiming it's members were Pinkerton Detectives (much like the SMSC claims it's agents are FBI) until shortly before the founding of the SMSC. Rumors that the SMSC is the same group as these Pinkerton agents are denied by all SMSC members who have replied to the question.
The New Mexico towns Devil's Fork and Santa Máquina (the blessed Machine in Spanish) from the same story are also available as settings for either historical or modern settings.
