    Husks is a pretty good name for what I assume are corn zombies

    Although this could also just be farming, I guess

    Husks is pretty perfect.

    Everyone has a price. Throw enough gold around and someone will risk disintegration.

    Those are lesser Husks, wherein a subtle failure of the rite raises a smaller, stunted being

    Whatever you call them, they're going to peel off your skin, tear out your hair, boil you, and eat the salted and buttered flesh off your bones.

    Do you have to throw lye on them to lower their defensive bonus?

    (Of course, throwing lye on most things would lower its defensive bonus...)

    I'm pretty sure "Dark Harvest" is in there. As well as "Evil Stalks the Land."

    "shuck" is definitely the go-to swear word for that campaign.

    "hominins", inspired by hominy, which is just bastard corn.

    Funnily enough a game about this (Sentient Corn) exists already:

    Their plans were set to bear a bountiful harvest...

    ...until the day they met the Dread Combine. In space, no one can hear corn be creamed.

    I think I still would go with Husks, in this instance.

    Now if, say some Husks rebelled, and escaped to the wilds, and discovered magical means of reproducing, as opposed to being summoned out of the ground from nothing, then those new free Husk children I would say should call themselves Cornborn.

    And if that magical means of reproducing involved, say, a giant ear of corn, where each kernel housed inside of its swollen form the devloping fetus of a Cornborn husk, you wouldn't be too out on a limb if you had that child tell an adventuring traveler that they and their siblings were born on the cob.

    You people are all on the wrong track with regards to why some wizard must orginally have used all their dark arts to create these thing.

    Obviously they are corncubines.

    But signatures don't really work, do they?

    Call them "Ears".
    People of the towns can say things like, "Watch what you say...there're Ears everywhere these days".

    Sometimes there's only so much disbelief we can suspend, and line seems to always land on tinier details the more outlandish the main idea is.

    Their descendants would be children on the corn.
