    I've also been thinking about one of Mowzie's older ideas of a possessed suit of armor that tries to out itself on the player and I've been coming up with ideas that expand upon it XD


    What if for the possessed armor, it's actually being controlled by a floating heart with an eye at the center of it that's hiding inside of it. Standing about half a block higher than the player, it could be an elite enemy that wields a longsword and shield, and it's attacks could include basic melee attacks and blocking, as well as throwing pieces of it's armor at the player. However, the player would be able to knock these pieces of armor to the ground by hitting them at the right time, causing the heart to lose a piece of it's armor.


    If the player manages to wack away enough armor pieces, the floating heart will be exposed, allowing the player to go in for the killing blow. If the player fails to attack the heart quick enough, the heart will start collecting it's lost armor pieces again. This was just a quick little brainstorm I decided to post XD

    I saw! I'm super glad you liked that idea! I'm also curious to see how it's obstacle courses would work in game!


    And honestly, I'd imagine that warlock tower idea working more in favor for my Librarian idea, due to the stark similarities. I can definitely see how the chaotic demon design could be a bit overwhelming to deal with; my initial idea was something that was just really bizarre and uncanny, and fought the player in a way that no other monster/boss does as of yet. For my monster ideas, I try to theme them around bosses/mini bosses, in that they have their own strengths and weaknesses; Librarian is a super glass cannon that relies heavily on his collection of magic, while the Tiki Guardians rely on synergies between each other XD

    Back at it again with another monster idea I came up with while at work and thinking about Majora's Mask XD


    The Inkubai


    A malevolent yet bizzare demon obsessed with painting, the Inkubai appears as a tall, imp-like monster with multiple arms, paint stained all over it's lanky body, and a staff-like paint brush it carries around. Pretty much, the Inkubai looks like a chaotic, abstract piece of art XD

    Found within it's lair deep underground, which could appear as a large room full of works of art and paintings it has hoarded over the years. Once disturbed, the Inkubai will begin to laugh and grunt maniacally, doing bizarre dances and movements before diving into a portrait, beginning the fight. The Inkubai's abilities would go as followed:

    1. Jumping into one of his portraits, the Inkubai will come out from another portrait from a random side of the room, performing one of his attacks before fleeing back into a portrait.

    2. Using the portrait nearest to it, it'll start painting on it and create a random threat for the player. These threats include various paint monsters, bombs, paint projectiles, paint lasors, etc.

    3. Occasionally, the Inkubai will bounce out from one portrait and begin to hop across the room towards another, creating splashes of damaging paint that fly randomly. If the player hits him with a ranged attack, though, the Inkubai will fall over and get stunned for a little bit.

    4. Once at low health, the Inkubai will create two paint clones of itself; although these clones have much less health than the player, they follow the same behavior of the Inkubai, and can create absolute chaos of the player does not kill them quick enough.

    Once defeated, the Inkubai will drop his brush, the Artisan's Folly, allowing the player to splash damaging paint onto enemies, as well as create paint monsters to aid them in combat!

    Do the multicolored beams do anything other than damage? There's a similar spell in dungeons and dragons called prismatic spray, and each of its rays does a different kind of damage (fire for red, acid for orange, poison for green etc). Perhaps a similar mechanic would be interesting.


    It would be, though I'm a bit worried as to how balanced an ability like that would be. Grant it, if the Vorpalyst were to be a special mob for The End, then the player at that point would probably be fully equipped and prepared for such a powerful mob. Not only that, but what if the player get's hit by all of the lasers?


    Regardless, if the Vorpalyst did have that prismatic spray effect, then I can imagine it being like this:

    -Red Laser (Fire)

    -Orange Laser (Damage Debuff)

    -Yellow Laser (Shock)

    -Green Laser (Poison)

    -Blue Laser (Frost)

    -Purple Laser (Wither)

    Ooh, that's really cool. My only concern is that I don't feel like there's a good setting for it in vanilla Minecraft. It feels a little too "arcane" to appear underground. Maybe in the End?


    Hmm, you do have a point.


    The End would probably make for a better place for the Vorpalyst to spawn, given it's otherworldly theme and design. Maybe it could spawn within some kind of hollowed-out asteroid made of darkened End Stone and Vorpal Glass, in which the player would have to dig into it to reach the Vorpalyst's arena.

    I’m really liking all of your plans and considerations for future mobs! The Snake Charmer, Phoben, and the Scupter are easily some my personal favorites (especially the Scupter :D ).


    Also, I came up with a new boss mob concept that was inspired by some of the beasties from Dungeons & Dragons!

    ~The Vorpalyst~

    The Vorpalyst is an arcane monster made almost entirely out of glass that stands about the same size as a Wroughtnaut. It has triple-jointed legs, two arms armed with glass scythes, and, within it’s torso, a fleshy heart with an eye in it.


    The Vorpalyst spawns deep underground within caverns made entirely out of a special material called Vorpal Glass, which has a special property which makes it able to deflect projectiles (arrows and fireballs for example). Aside from basic swiping attacks from it’s arms, as well as a leaping attack, the Vorpalyst has two other unique attacks:

    • Prism Beam: The Vorpalyst exposes its heart to fire six beams of light in a fan-like angle, with each beam being a different color (red, yellow, orange, green, blue, and purple). The Vorpalyst starts by pointing the beams of light downwards, before raising it’s torso upwards to bring the beams up, damaging everything in front of it. Although very powerful, this attack can be easily avoided if the player steps out of way.
    • Light Spheres: Occasionally, the Vorpalyst will fire a ball of multicolored light from it’s eye that will bounce around the room, doing damage if it touches the player.

    I'm a bit torn between ideas on how the player can damage the Vorpalyst, but one idea I had was that the player must deflect the Light Spheres with their melee weapon so that they hit the monster. Upon doing so, the Vorpalyst’s body will shatter, leaving it’s heart vulnerable to be attacked for a short period before it reforms it’s body. The only problem with this idea, though, is that it very similar to my idea as to how the Librarian mob could be damage. Regardless, my other idea is that the Vorpalyst that it could be damaged just like any other mob, but is more resilient to swords and immune to projectiles, but is very weak against pickaxes XD


    Upon death, not only will the player be able to gather the Vorpal Glass Which makes up it’s arena, but will also be given an item called the Vorpal Shard; a magic weapon that allows the player to perform the monster’s Prism Beam attack.

    To be 100% honest, I think you should start working on new content! But that's entirely up to you, my guy! :D


    Also, a quick question, but in terms of future mobs/NPCs you will be doing, will you be prioritizing your own ideas first before moving on to working on to suggestions made here, or will you be just working on any idea that interests you the most?


    But otherwise, thank you so much for updating the mod!

    I'm afraid the boss that grants the Earth Talisman has already been decided on. I do plan to add some sort of golem mob, though.

    Shaolin music intensifies :3
