This is awesome, I was just looking a grab and go demon the other day and couldn't find on.  I was going to right up some demons for the site then I found this.  Really, Really, Good and so useful to a GM. Thanks.

Not bad - strikes me as a New Take on the Roper (An AD&D monster), at least vaguely. I like the backstory. Go to Comment

I really like it, but do the creatures resemble humanoid bodies? The creature overall makes sense, but more information on their social interaction (hierarchy, etc.) would make it better. Go to Comment

Nasty and revolting, the kind of creature that will leave a memorable impression long after it is slain, especially the next time the smell of death is in the air.



While perfect for a fantasy game, once again these creatures woudl feel at home in more modern or sapce faring settings with minimal modifcation, the perfect inhabitant of drifting space hulsk and abandoned colonies.



The pic at the end really helped bring it all togther, and the beginning narrative set the scene nicely. Another one of those "I must use this in my next adveture" subs thatis too good to pass up.

Very useful, and the story in the beginning really sets the tone.

Just now saw this. I do like.

Also, I can see a certain... market for a captured Dark Unicorn. A most wondrous steed for the character that's able to break it. Go to Comment

Hm...
What ways does a dark unicorn use to ... kick ass? I guess its powers of goodness would be turned to darkness too.

Another thought: the unicorn, maddened, will no longer be selective after it completes the revenge, becoming a bane of the whole species of the murderer - which may lead to big trouble if it was, say, a half-elf, in which case it kills humans and elves with passion. Go to Comment

I am pleased that I will never come face to face in real life with one of these beasts. 5/5. Go to Comment

This Game Hunter secretly kills Unicorns despite the strict laws against doing such a thing in nearly all countries.He then offers his services as a Dark Unicorn killer. Go to Comment

It's most likely power/respect, I think. Go to Comment

Ancient Gamer's comment on 2005-11-08 02:12 PM
Ah, the power of love and the pain that comes when our love is denied us in one way or another. This is a beautiful idea; the Unicorn, a symbol of love and spirit, cast down into the bowels of despair, its once pure heart turned black with hate and grief. It could happen to any of us and the Unicorn symbolize the very epitome of love and true spirit, so it is only fitting its fall is greater than any others'. Go to Comment

YOu see now the complexity of it. Once its revenge is completed it still has its rage and anger and it must choose an outlet for that. Go to Comment

To kill Unicorns, or Dark Unicorns? I could imagine Unicorn HUnters in the vien of Dragon Hunters that seek out and attempt to remove the dark blight that they have become. Interesting plot idea for pcs. Go to Comment

While that is a simple question it is not a real easy answer. They have been seen as mounts for powerful demons but whether it is a broken and tamed thing or a power/ respect thing is totally unknown. No good person will be able to ride them regardless. Go to Comment

I really like the imagery of the horn untwisting and then shrivelling and turning black like a burnt corn shuck... Go to Comment

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
