I must ask though, who here thinks the guys I listed should be adapted into Hollistic Spawn and who thinks they deserve to be kept a unique race in themselves?

:/ Well, whatever makes you happy, Mr Frog. Hopefully you'll still be okay with lurking or something.

As a side note, I'm tempted to 'Quote Section!' that non-spoilered part.

I'll second that quote...



I haven't gotten enough written for a full Vanya/Urist update yet, but I'm working on it.


@ Soulslicerjames: They're all definitely possible, from what I can tell... Sounds like you're almost making them into a sentient race of their own, though - like they're not just wild beasts anymore. Almost playable, in fact... like... Spawn Fortress.
I would add "Godspawn": A particularly rare incarnation that's amassed itself a conglomerated body of flesh and bones from fallen dead... Would make a nice megabeast/boss. Also, I wouldn't mind experimenting with birds... creating a flying (but weak) version of the Spawn would make things really interesting for the unlucky person who had to fight them. I imagine they wouldn't be able to spread the infection, though, or it'd be gamebreaking... They might be like flying piranhas, I guess.

Kinda, I always intended for them to be a threat, just like goblins.  I was mostly focussed on how they would actually BE a threat, with things like workspawn being put in to explain how they survive as a psudo-civilization (as it says, they do all the non-military stuff, explaining how, for example, the warspawn attacking you got nice weapons if none of the types attacking do things like metalwork).  Though mostly I wrote it all down as I didn't want to forget and know I'm not going to learn how to mod anytime soon.  I even have stuff written up on their reproduction.  My only problem is how, not being related to Spawn of Hollistic if kept as a race of their own, I feel it would be best to rename the race overall.  I only used "spawn" because I can't think of any name that fits them better.

I always saw the spawn as just dilling and eating everything they ran into. Hungery? Walk outside and kill something. Thirsty? Drink it's blood. Larva demanding food? Kill it and feed it to the rest so they shut up.

As I said, this started as an unique race of it's own, and you are welcome to keep it that way or adapt it for the Hollistic Spawn.

Planned weapons, some  of them already made:

Railguns - The ones the dwarves will have will trade rate of fire seen in the stories to devestating power.
Chainswords----|
Buzzhammers--|
Chainaxes------| All of thses are self explainitory (they run off Chainsaw Good basically.)
Sawpikes-------|
Mughammers - Massive spiked mugs on the end of a sturdy pole.
Mug Rifles -  Actually more of an air gun that fires mugs.
Gladius for shits and giggles
Fist saw - basically half of a small serrated disc on a handle.
Mug - Yup. an actual mug as a small bludegoning weapon.
Nightsticks - Intended to be wooden billy clubs for the fortress guard but macedwarves will find metal ones a good stand in for a proper mace.

Almost forgot the Grindeaxe, an axe made of a bunch of mechanisms and does what it says. grinds against the target, tearing away bits. Exlcuding the chainweapons this is probably one of the most visceral weapons cause it yanks and tears rather than cutting or slicing.

Those railguns can't be emulated in DF at present. Therefore, as a handwave (I hate calling it such though) the ones Dorf!Mr Frog gave the dwarves the ability to produce traded a high rate of fire for destroy an APC with a couple shots type of destructive power.
