Eyes of Night - be a shapeshifting vampire-zombie-owl-knight

gender-choice
low-fantasy

#1

I don’t have much so far: the MC is a knight, who was turned into a horrific blood craving undead owl-monstrosity by an as-of-yet-unknown sorcerer, and is keeping their humanity thanks to their newfound witch friend.

Not sure if I’ll even get any farther on it, but I had to get it out of my system.

do you mean owlbear or wendigo?


#3

My major inspiration was actually the Strix, from Chronicles of Darkness. I’m leaving the actual form the MC takes when not-human up to the imagination, but that’s where I started.

this hahaha

Summary


#5

Wow, that was quick! :smile:


#6

Obviously, not finished. I typed out what little I had in less than an hour, so…


#7

:laughing: This would certainly make for an interesting comedy. We do not get many laughs in these games.


#8

I’m a slow writer, who needs plotting and can’t turn off my internal editor.
From my point of view, this is impressive. :kissing_heart:


#9

See, that’s where I’m struggling a bit. While I’m tempted to play the premise completely straight, I do see it turning into an (incredibly dark) comedy, incredibly fast. It doesn’t help that I intentionally wrote the witch as being utterly flippant about the life and fate of her newfound companion, who she ~mysteriously~ knows the name of.

I’m sitting on this for now. Just wanted to push it out before I went back to work on The Imperial Shadow (no, it’s not dead).


#10

Hahah, I’m so here for this.


#11

Man this is a super interesting concept and the demo seems pretty solid for only being a few pages. I’m super intrigued and am definitely keeping an eye on it.


#12

As am I. This writing is very good.


#13

Seems interesting is it gender locked and will there be romance


#14

Dam that was short did not know that


#15

Fascinating idea. Looking forward to more!


#16

Oh this concept is so cool!! I loved the demo, even though its a prototype. I can’t wait to see how this develops!


#17

i like this story i hope you keep on goning


#18

Yeah this really is pretty amazing given it was a one off idea that was sparked from a thread.


#19

I leave for one chemistry class and I come back to this…

I mean, the title of this topic alone is a masterpiece.


I’m getting Diaval-from-Maleficient vibes and I love it.

And I know this was more an exercise to get it out of your system but it’s already got me hooked. By all means work on what you’d prefer, but know that I really like this skeleton of game so far, lol.


#20

I love the idea and what I’ve seen in the demo. Good on ya mate!
