Title: [The Coyote Lode] I Need Monsters!
Post by: Troy_Costisick on April 17, 2012, 04:25:03 AM
Heya,

Im continuing to work on my Game Chef game.  I started with ten monsters, but I need more.  I especially need "boss" monsters, you know, things bigger and badder than your run of the mill undead or giant bat.  Anyone have any good suggestions for monsters that might fit the Old-West Horror genre of the Coyote Lode?   Just so you dont have to read the whole game, here's what the game chef draft has right now:

Undead miner
Cave crawler (spider)
Echo beast
Mindstabber
Soul eater
Windigo
Mimic
Ghost
Dire bat
Giant rat

Thanks :)

Troy

Angry bull seems like it would fit in nicely. If you're willing to be a little silly, rabid armadillo.

Spirit of Vengeance (because a PC in a western game are bound to piss off some poorly researched generic natives)
Not a bone golem as in a construct built by a wizard, but rather a shambling mass of bone in the rough shape of a large bull or rhino-esque thingy that was born in some cursed civil war battlefield.
In every fantasy game, there's this sword that's sentient. How about a sentient six-shooter that yearns for bloooood?
Dire tumbleweed
To take some inspiration from Jeepers Creepers, a lone gunman who stalks the prairie, looking for victims so he can mend his torn human skin coat.

Heya,

Those are some good suggestions, guys.  I hadn't thougjt of using a lot of amimal imagery in the game.  But ghost bears, white bison, amd the creatures you mentioned fit perfectly!

Peace,

Would you consider looking into some Native American evil spirits for monster creation?

This Atahsaia guy is pretty cool http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81tahsaia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81tahsaia)
