What's Daystalk? I know Nightstalk is invisibility at night, but a lantern giving invisibility in the day seems unintuitive. Do you mean something else?

Nope, that's what I meant. It's magic!

Hmmm... I've never tried to draw anything made of fluid before. But here's a (rather rough) blood nyad.

And here's a little something I concocted myself, half man, half spider, all undead. The Deathless Webspinner.

Yeah I hand-drew it in roughly 30 minutes, besides the head. I couldn't get the other legs to position correctly so I just canned them. A new version with (hopefully) more legs is underway.

Sorry for the DP, but I managed to slap on a couple of legs.

Because is a complete shadow when the monster is full of spaces between all his bones.

The spaces between the bones do actually not matter. Look at the mainline skeletons.
First read, then think. Read again, think again. And then post!

I just tossed in the shadow, that was a quick job. If you'd like to fix it then by all means be my guest.

Belated observation: Wyverns generally don't breathe fire but they do have a barbed, poisonous tail. Could one of those be added to this guy?

I wanted a new monster unit to act as a guardian of sorts of a cave in tSG, so I grabbed this eye creature by neo and turned it into a plant-like thing called Eyestalk.

Here are also the relevant stats and such from the unit .cfg:

Code: Select all

[unit]
    id=Eyestalk
    name= _ "Eyestalk"
    race=monster
    hitpoints=68
    movement_type=smallfoot
    [resistance]
        blade=120
        pierce=80
        impact=80
        fire=120
        cold=80
        arcane=80
    [/resistance]
    movement=1
    level=3
    alignment=lawful
    [abilities]
        {ABILITY_REGENERATES}
    [/abilities]
    unit_description= _ "Named 'Eyestalks' for obvious reasons, these plant-like creatures can focus their gaze onto an unsuspecting victim to draw life energy straight out of them to replenish their own. While almost defenseless against melee attacks, its deadly gaze from afar is not to be underestimated.

Special Notes:"+{SPECIAL_NOTES_DRAIN}+{SPECIAL_NOTES_REGENERATES}
    [attack]
        name=smash
        type=impact
        range=melee
        damage=8
        number=1
    [/attack]
    [attack]
        name=gaze
        type=arcane
        range=ranged
        damage=13
        number=3
        icon=attacks/gaze.png
        [specials]
            {WEAPON_SPECIAL_DRAIN}
        [/specials]
    [/attack]
[/unit]
Cute, huh? In the campaign it'll be placed in a narrow passage in a cave, so it actually can't move at all (might be subject to change).

I'm not quite sure about the damage type of the gaze.
