Forgotten Beasts of the Future

Quote from: Psieye
will the forgotten beast generator be updated for next version to include all the new tags that got created while working on Night Creatures?

There are some handy tags, but I'm not sure we're going to get at a lot of the potential there this time.  I suppose they should be turning all your dwarves into gremlins with gremlin breath by now.
I thought I came up with a horrifying vision of the (beyond next version) future when I suggested a Forgotten Beast that had tainted meat, turned into a more grotesque form on full moon and would get extremely powerful if it ever got exposed to sunlight. Toady one-up'd me with his off-hand thought. "Beware its Deadly Dust" will be replaced with "Beware its dust that turns you into a cave blob". Oh crud, demons also use the forgotten beast generator don't they? We might see one of these as a human diplomat...

So what other Forgotten Beast visions do you have given the new tags that are being created?

I can't find the exact quote, but let me summarize:

If we get FB's that cause mutations, it's only a matter of time until someone realizes that some of them have possibly useful mutations like extra limbs or whatever.
And then, they will be weaponized. Like everything in this game, from kittens to babies, everything is a potential device of murder.

If they're helpful (Magma immunity, superpowers, etc.), they'll be used on dwarves.

If they're harmful (Just about everything else), they'll be used on elves.

People are already getting giant, angry bees as forgotten beats.  I think that tops pretty much everything.

Looks like no one's stolen that. It's pretty sig-worthy.

So if baseless speculation is all we have, we might as well treat it like fact.

But in the future, we can get a giant, angry bee with a sting that makes you explosively allergic to say, steel.

WHAT ABOUT ELVES?

Elf is allergic to elf skin! Elf is bloated! Elf is very unhappy!

Every release is a bit grimmer. Much longer and I'll start to wonder if Toady One is channeling the spirit of H.P. Lovecraft.
Of course, if my dwarves get an awesome syndrome (...Everyone think about that statement for a sec), then I'll love the update and release the FB into my population. MUAHAHAHA! BATHE IN THE VENOM THAT WILL STRENGTHEN YOU! Aw, crap, a baby punched it to death.
