More original monsters

Postby sam » 29 Nov, 2016

Hi, I am gamer from China. I am looking for ghost hunter-style RPG, then I was attracted to this project. :)
At present it seems there are many monsters of the "legendary prototype" ; Whether it will add more original monsters?
I improvised in mind, a kind of spirits called "Nameless". They are essentially fictional characters who die in literary works, but become true spiritual threat, appear to the real world. Their appearance looks like a pile of ink lines constitute the human form, constantly making noise -- It is actually repeating its own "name", but every retelling will have subtle errors. It wants to find its author, to return to its name.
If you are too much into its noise, you will fall into a closed weird scene -- this is actually a fragment of the book, is the plot when the character die. You have to find a way to escape, or you will lose yourself, become derivative of Nameless.

Hey there Sam.
That's actually a very intriguing idea...
I really like the Nameless... <3

However so far I believe they are going for the traditional monsters simply because there are so many out there, and many of them are not that well known. They said they would do their own little spins on them, so maybe something resembeling the Nameless will appear.

Actually, what you are describing have me thinking about something similar, but in an artifact instead.
Would you mind if I were to use some of the things in the description of an artifact for the game?
I'll of course mention that it's inspired by your idea for the Nameless.

Of course. :D Look forward to your creation.
I would expect the monsters of Asia to appear in later additions.Such as Rokurokubi, Jiangshi, Or the monsters from The Classic of Mountains and Seas. :D

Sam wow this is so awesome!

Yes we've been thinking of adding various Yokai as it's own job/monster class, there is such rich and creepy folklore from Asia!
Our favorite is the Shojo spirit, which is only seen by drunks :P

You could also go with the simple Oni, though that would probably be a as a mayor boss as those are if I remember correctly mostly physical brutes, meaning you'd have to less go through an investigative phase on that level and more of a stealth sequence where you set up traps to weaken it...

I heard the developers are great fans of a particular podcast who specialises in Crypto zoology and that podcast will soon be making an episode on Kitsune, so maybe they will be taking inspiration in that as well??

One of the things I really like about the setup of this game is that it feels kinda old school to me as I've mentioned elsewhere.
It's so perfect for straight up expansion packs.
Depending on the end of the first game (our main character might die after all) a new expansion pack either sees him moving on to a new part of the world for whichever reason (I can think of several) or we find a new person being the focus of the new story taking place in a new place.

After all, it would make sense that most Asian cryptids are resident mainly in Asia.
The same can be said for African cryptids.
Them being located in Australia, I'd love to see what they could come up with "down under"...
Dropbears is a possibility for one ^^

Anyways, me being in Europe, I'm hitting the sack, tomorrow I'm putting together a Artifact...
Sweet dreams all <3

Oni is also a good choice. I think it would be a giant boss, looming in a large group of red mists,hand-held giant rod to crushing everything. :)
You could also add the Aswang, the legendary shape-shifters in Philippines. :)
