[43.05] The Nuckelavee
« on: January 24, 2017, 01:16:44 am »

The other day, a friend of mine showed me this fun little critter, and ruminated on the possibilities of modding it into DF. I read the article and immediately said YES.

Then I did a forum search and realized that a few people already made their own nuckelavees, but I spent two whole days on this bugger and damned if I'm gonna let that stop me.

This mod adds a single creature to the game: the dreaded Nuckelavee. It's self-contained and will work with most other mods. Add the included files to your raws folder and create a new world.

"An enormous two-headed sea demon whose form is that of the upper body of a man merged with a horse; it spreads misfortune wherever fell lands meet cold seas. Its skinless flesh pulsates with black blood and powerful muscles. The manlike half causes calamities with dark powers; the equine half spreads a deadly plague with its breath, and bears a single eye that burns with unholy light."


Bonus clip: The Mortasheen Plague it causes is contagious as hell, and your dwarves will spread it by hacking up clouds of phlegm all over each other.

The World Without Knifebear A much safer world indeed.
regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

sounds really cool - hey, if ur good at creature RAWS, im making a rather ambitious magic mod - adding arcane, druid, holy, unholy, psionic, and enchantment magic into the game, and i wanted to know if you could build a couple of undead abominations for me. Like, one megabeast level, one semi-mega level, and two about equal to a troll in general strength. If u arent comfortable with magical effects/interactions, just tell me, and any concept you have i can do the magic/special powers portion u. If ur willing to help.
