New draft here! Sort of based on local lore, sort of based on random ideas.
So, what I gather is that whatever purpose the anomalous steel is used for is warped or enhanced in specific ways. I do think the ways that the steel affects local populations or the buildings it affects could be clarified or further explored; you kinda use non-specific language concerning their descriptions. For example, the first instance is anomalously prone to "ghosts" I'd like some further analysis into why the ghosts inhabit the buildings. In regards to the third instance, how exactly are the buildings more accommodating to living things? How does one measure something like that?
I think this concept has potential, especially if you delve more into the local perceptions about the company. Maybe if you develop more of the anomaly, a story will come out more naturally than inserting a narrative into the scip.
So, I've played around with this a bit more, and changed some details around to clarify or expand things. (For example, the houses aren't actually haunted, people just think they are.)
As far as a narrative about the company… I'm still thinking about it. The initial idea was something like this (spoilers):
If I can make that clearer or it needs more narrative threads, our anything else, please let me know.
