He’s never made a monster out of corpses, but it sounds like a lot of work.
The quiet villages of Frankenstein’s Bavaria are about to get a whole lot louder.
The setting for this world is the 1800's, a while after Dr. Frankenstein created his famous monster. Since then, the doctor has been tracking his creation with the intention of destroying the beast. But he never stopped creating. He has built up an army of loyal, reliable robots, and he's teamed them up with him monster-hunting law enforcement officers, dubbed the Franken Squad. The robots prove much easier to control than monsters.
The good doctor's creature has been busy with creations of his own, though. The monster, using Dr. Frankenstein's secrets, has been able to create his own series of meta-monsters, most of whom are opposed to law and order, if not civilization itself. These monsters are criminals, but they are refugees also.
This world is not one of stark moral contrasts. Some of the monster hunters are corrupt and ruthless, and some of the monsters are caring and compassionate. The struggle between these factions is always ongoing in a series of skirmishes. Basically, it’s like a steampunk version of The Wire, but with monsters.
