Garak in his scared state chose to interpret 'take all his bullets' as 'unload his entire gun'. You'll have far less control of the monster hunters, instead having to 'guide' them. On the plus side, this means they have a personality, and it also means that if Garak 'dies' rather than the quest ending you simply start with a new hunter looking for Garak.
No. 117044 ID: 22b85b

And DO expect to die; If you reach 0 SP or 0 HP, you'll Go insane/Die. SP recovers after rest, HP recovers from taking time to heal. VISCERAL type monsters do HP damage, MENTAL type monsters do SP damage, and HORROR types can do either, but tend to do less overall.

It feels like he's only going to take suggestions that involve fighting the monsters or preparing to fight them.
No. 117047 ID: 22b85b


Initially; Yes! That's exactly what was going to happen. Due to his backstory and skillset, Battle and Battle prep was what the character was oriented around. Now that he knows he's in over his head, ALSO due to his backstory he's going to do reconnaissance. Depending on how you want this to GO, you can either try to lead him towards a path that will circumvent his bias OR you can try to get him killed. Or try to get the monsters in the house killed, up to you.

Well, I'd prefer to try and "circumvent his bias."
I prefer a happy ending.

After helping them for so long, you're gonna have one hell of a time convincing any of us to want any of the monsters dead!

Leaning towards getting him killed, but that just means we'll wind up with a stronger hunter arriving afterwards. Heck even if we don't get him killed the other hunters are going to show up aren't they?

When you mentioned previous characters can be re-submitted, what about characters that were already chosen for side characters? Are respawns where they'll come in or should we wait to let them appear on their own?
No. 117083 ID: 22b85b


If they're NOT chosen for the respawn they'll show up later. if they ARE chosen for the respawn now is when they'd show up. In other words you CAN choose a side character as the new Hunter, but if you don't they still continue to exist as a side character.

This is starting to look like a quest where we're repeatedly pushed towards either hurting our friends or getting killed. Do you like, want us to kill all the monsters or something

Certainly not! ...admittedly though I did want to see if you lot would get killed with the first character show I could show that there are consequences to actions. It is partially why I implemented the 'don't leave the foyer' rule in the first place; a rule which won't be happening this time around. It's also important to note that the death does allow me to figure out which things work and which don't based on people's reactions: At the current moment there is the very delicate problem of allowing too MUCH control over a character (As happened with lavender previously) VS too LITTLE control over a character (as with Garak). The implimentation of swaystones should allow for a healthy medium in this regard: You'll have direct influence of something in the world, and the main character can regard or disregard this advice without it affecting them negatively directly. If you have any advice I would genuinely like to hear it; Thus far 'I don't like this' or 'give me more control' doesn't really do anything.
No. 117096 ID: 91ee5f

Just curious, when Garak was killed and you let us add abilities to the other Hunter suggestions, is there a limit to the number of abilities that can be given to a Hunter?

Mostly because it wouldn't be fair if we made the next Hunter impossible to be killed by the monsters, but we also don't want to make the Hunter too easy to be killed by monsters either.
No. 117097 ID: 91ee5f

Also are you going to be deciding the next Hunter's starting HP/SP or is that something we should do?
No. 117098 ID: 22b85b


Hunters can accumulate skills easily; But having too many starting skills means they'll start to accumulate curses; negative traits that aren't easily removed. Lavender's [PHYSICAL WEAKNESS] is considered a curse.

Monster Hunters start with 20 HP and 20 SP. As they explore and get hidden achievements these scores will increase. The increase carries over to new hunters.
No. 117116 ID: be0718

In a world where monsters have existed this long and no progress has been made in treatment, someone's got to be suppressing the information. If Dolores reports back to her superiors with her findings, I think she's going to find out what happened to those other whistleblowers.

I'm just imagining how Teleste's encounter would have gone with the blind monster hunter.

Y'all know how this goes; same as the monster hunter, only it's a monster this time! The Wendigo has gained some allies; from who knows where! Now's your chance to design a monster to (Fight/Date/Become)!


Monster must have either a VISCERAL/HORROR/MENTAL type

Monster must have at least 3 MENTAL ATTRIBUTES
Monster must have at least 1 PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTE

That's it! Good luck!

As always; Monsters with an attached picture will gain preference!

Monsters with NSFW versions MUST have a SFW version associated.

Monster Contest winners will be decided by voting; You can design a monster, which counts as a vote for that monster, AND vote for one secondary monster that's not your own. alternatively, you can not design a monster and distribute a vote to two different monsters! A monster with a picture will be counted as having an extra vote!

Good Luck!

I just realized that Luna should have been the first stop. She can predict negative events so she would've been able to warn Dolores to change her outfit before talking to Jeremy.
No. 117542 ID: 576c10


Visceral type monsters are physical attack based; they damage HP through things like claws, knives, weapons, etc.

Mental type monsters attack the psyche selectively, they utilize illusions, grotesque imagery, and assaults on the mind to inflict insanity before creeping up on their prey

Horror type monsters are a mix; They use both mental assaults on the mind and visceral attacks to inflict damage; things like diseases, venoms, or purposeful damage without killing are how they inflict damage.

There's a rock-paper-scissors in how the three interact; Visceral are strong against Horror, Horror are strong against Mental, and Mental are strong against Visceral

HORROR type monster

A monster that does his best to stay hidden from sight, the most you really see of him is flashes out of the corners of your vision. Loves to play tricks on others, these tricks range from harmless to mentally scarring. Likes to think up puzzles or brainteasers sometimes, he may or may not use them in his pranks.
No. 117544 ID: be0718

Gizmo - HORROR - A little gremlin that crawls inside your head and hijacks your body! This tiny terror can go out and see the world, provided she gets inside her victim without them ever seeing her! Her only other natural abilities are ventriloquism and a high jump - useful for getting someone to look the wrong way for a second while you catapult yourself from a nearby shelf. Or getting away if that fails. She enjoys being carried and devising mechanical mobility aids for when she's roughing it on foot.
(Her current host has been around long enough that he's been monsterfied - he is objectionable to Dolores in some way, either from the ill-fitting youth's baseball uniform he wears or the unmistakeable signs of a monster hunter.)

MENTAL type monster

A satyr type monster who's preferred method of hunting is influencing her victims into revelry and picking them off one by one. She's been known to use her illusions to party with her prey before revealing herself.

VISCERAL type monster

A Kaiju type monster that prefers staying in her room with her HORRIBLE quantity of cats and sunken ships and let her tentacles do all her SOCIAL trips . Someone once told her that she looks GEZORA and she felt bad about her own body.

SHIPS aren't her kink, it was just a PHASE when she was YOUNG, people should totally stop assuming that.

Yeah, but usually she have a hard time seeing people because that's pretty much her hand. Punch her to give a high-five.
