How would they react to explosions (such as fireballs and the like?) we have both heat (which they like), and sound (depending on your take on Fireball and similar spells - Boom vs Woof!). Go to Comment

4.5/5 I really liked it! I'll be sure to use it on my RP board. Go to Comment

If something had a fitting size (remember the hobbit rogue cliche), it could camouflage as an Observer. May work, may not. Go to Comment

Players seem so convinced that things have a purpose sometimes!

All so true...

Is does sound a little cartoonish, but if they were actually constructs, or aspects of a god or powerful wizard they become less cartoonish and more fantastical.
They are constructs... from a God, an Alien Probe, or some wizard... nobody knows the reasons. Go to Comment

Great idea though the description is so-so. These creatures sound too cartoonish for my taste, but in another wrapping they would be a pure 5.0
Very, very good MoonHunter. Go to Comment

I love these guys! I loved Element Master. We had one follow our group until people started crouching to take cover behind Guppy, because he was invunerable.

The next one could go desolid. Imagine our suprise when that trick did not work again. Go to Comment

I can imagine a whole day long session of the PCs poking and prodding one of these trying to figure out what's going on. Players seem so convinced that things have a purpose sometimes! Is does sound a little cartoonish, but if they were actually constructs, or aspects of a god or powerful wizard they become less cartoonish and more fantastical. Something is watching and observing, you can't shake it, you can't hurt it, and it never takes any action. Go to Comment

Ouch, I hit a vein of sketchy MH ideas transferred from V1. I like most of these, but this is YET another partially finished post. Needs more work. Go to Comment

It is pretty minimalist post, but I like the idea. I remember the rust monster from D&D long ago (I actually found a plastic rust monster toy in my sandbox when i moved into a new house when i was 4!). Anything to take away the players' treasure. If your party gets too rich, an enemy could easily obtain a few of these and make them quite sad. But this makes me wonder how much could they eat? Given enough time, a lot right, but that makes me wonder (i'm serious).. what comes out the other end? I mean, the PCs come back to a vault with no gold, but full of... what? How does on digest gold? Or does it come out ionized (like a gold ion salt solution). Go to Comment

Kind of nifty. A little bare bones, though. Are the hosts aware of what's going on, like they can see themselves doing something, they just can't stop, or does the thing interrupt their consciousness? Do the hosts remember what went on after the goo leaves, assuming they're still alive? Does the goo do permanent damage? Once they take control of a host, do they know how to replicate human behavior sufficiently to pull the deception off, or is it obvious something isn't right? They percieve electrical impulses, magnetic waves, and vibrations. Could a big enough disharge (lightning, HUGE sound blast) harm or disrupt them? Go to Comment

This would probably be based on the skills and the need of the Black One. Manipulating the mind of the subject takes time and effort. Perhaps if they grab someone while they are asleep, and keep them asleep while they are using the body. Maybe they neutralize the mind, triggering any number of biochemcials.


Do the hosts remember what went on after the goo leaves, assuming they're still alive?

See above.

Does the goo do permanent damage?
It does not have to. It is really based on their actions. If they are careful, then no. If they are not careful, they might ignore diabetes or some other issue, so cause damamge. Perhaps they will "over use" a body to meet their needs. Thus burning the host out.


Once they take control of a host, do they know how to replicate human behavior sufficiently to pull the deception off, or is it obvious something isn't right?

Most probably can do a good job, if they have been here for a little while. Duplicate a specific person well... that could take some time and effort.

They percieve electrical impulses, magnetic waves, and vibrations. Could a big enough disharge (lightning, HUGE sound blast) harm or disrupt them?

It would probably dazzle their senses for a little while. An EMP pulse might actually do true harm to them. Go to Comment

This is very reminiscent of the X-Files and the black tar ooze they kept finding.

This adds a creepy feel to things you possibly run into and don't know what they are or where they came from. The fact they can take over another lifeforms body is very creepy and worth the effort to do to a game group. It would be a nice turn of events to have something like that attach itself to a player and begin controlling them for a time.

But what do they do once they gain a physical body and how long can they stay in that body? Can they stay in it for an infinite amount of time, or will their very presence degrade the living body and eventually kill it by sapping its energy? Go to Comment

They are aliens. Total Aliens. Nothing they do should be comprehensible. These things are probably hyperdimensional as well, so they exist in several planes at once.

Yah. Good explanation for them I think. Go to Comment

I'm willing to play fast and loose with science, especially in a fantasy world (but i much prefer "magic" to bad science in general). But I wonder about the ecology/culture/motivations of these creatures. Just because the players don't know doesn't mean that you can't tell us. Go to Comment

More akin to a sketch than any full MoonHunter quality post. I see the idea and I think there is a glimmer there, but I do not know if it is a glimmer of hope. What I mean: I do not know if I am attracted to the idea of a regenerating beast of burden/oxen replacement. Go to Comment

If they are semi-intelligent why do they tolerate being fought for amusement, why not try to escape? Are they fed well and pampered? Considering their hatred of being de-horned, I imagine they would not like to be kept as arena animals. The post confuses me because some things make the animal seem very aggresive ("brutal" and description of hooves as very sharp makes it sound aggressive to me) but the description seems mild. It doesn't all add up to me, but maybe I'm just reading it wrong. Go to Comment
