Greetings. I’ve been drafting up a story where you, the MC, a monster, has to hide, thrive and contend in a world dominated by humans.
The monsters you can play as (so far):
Generally mindless, solitary, mute scavangers, your MC is an exception. Able to contort, morph and ooze yourself in many shapes and forms, you also possess the ability to secrete caustic acid. Looked down upon as literal bottomfeeders, maybe you will prove to all doubters your biological perfection?
Fierce beastfolk, prideful warrior-slaves and the scourge of humanity, Gnolls are physically adept, cunning opportunists with strong senses and amoral dispostions. Despite their overtly transgressive acts on other sentient races, gnolls have powerful, healthy familial bonds. You would sacrifice yourself for the greater good of kin, wouldn’t you?
Beautiful, sensual, etheral and sinister. Life is easy when you’re a very attractive jack/jill-of-all-trades. These demonic entities live an almost carefree existence, intermingling seamlessly with humans and monsters a like. However being a popular triple agent brings the risk of being impaled from all sides.
Hedonistic elitists, Mind-flayers have an unsavoury reputation, even amongst other monsters. While formidable, colonies are usually obessive and paranoid. A species consumed with mass extinction and universal domination, is ultimately self-defeating. Perhaps a certain, exiled individual will change that fate?
With talent and skill, a human can achieve physical immortality. No more need for food, water or sleep. No more threats from bacterial, viral or parasitic infections. What would you do for an eternity, aside from avoiding/defeating powerful foes. Relaxing on a tropical paradise or more likely, trapped in a catacomb, fighting for self-preservation.
What are your thoughts, please let me know?
