Ok /tg/, I am running a low fantasy, frazzeta-ish game set in some sort of late stone age/early metal age. Two of the PCs fell in love with each other but they are from different races (she's an elf, he's a human. Elves are more druidic and humans are more horde-like).

So, since she was the princess of her tribe she was sentenced to death for giving herself to a human and in order to save her the human PC has to prove himself worthy by slaying an animal BBEG that both elves and humans fear/worship to different degrees. So give me ideas /tg/?

at least I know I want its lair to be >full< of bones from humans and elves alike, so many all of the ground and the entrace are covered by them.

Well, humans are nomadic, but at the same time they are more advanced that elves in some things, like they already started to forge a few things from soft metals and already wear fur/hide boots and armor of sort.

Elves know some agriculture and live in forest villages, but they know nothing of metalworking. Also, they are a lot more "mystic" in comparison. Also (at least the princess and the female elf warriors that have appeared as it is mostly an "amazon" race) never wear armor or shoes.

Giant fucking spider. I'd suggest some unholy tarantula-esque thing. That way you get giant fangs (dripping with venom) and the urticating hairs (which can either be a cloud of fiberglass shards or dagger-sized, tossable quills).

And if the PC performs well, give him an artifact reward. One of the fags of the spider as a dagger or spear tip

I want to play in this kind of game, I love that type of fantasy.
Something fierce and noble, to inspire that kind of fear and reverence. I think a giant monstrous bear or boar.

Actually come to think of it, any spider could work if you make it large enough. Except maybe trapdoor spiders since they're something of a one-shot gimmick and not so great outside their burrow. Let's see, you have:

-Tarantulas. See above.
-Wolf/wandering spiders: fast, agile and good senses.
-Spitting/bola spiders: ranged attack? hahaha oh fuck
-Jumping Spiders: something the size of a rhino or a horse leaping around like a ninja? Oh fuck again.
-Orb weavers: kind of iffy. A fight on a web could be interesting.

Kinda sorta yeah.


I thought of an old, gigantic bear too, but the spider idea sounds pretty tempting. Also makes it more squeamish.

Spiders can be quick squick-inducing. I love them but they still freak me out from the wrong angle. If you need picture aids, I'd suggest looking at the Poecilotheriinae genus.

There is a gargantuan pit at the base of the largest trees in the deepest forest. Here lie the bones of thousands of animals, so deep that the loam is layered upon the bones, mounds of rotted leaves and earth over tons of bones. Here crawls The Dweller Beneath the Roots, a colossal centipede which hunts the forest every few months, consuming small kills where it finds them, dragging the larger kills - dire animals, giants, and other great beasts back to be consumed at leisure.

Except it isn't a centipede. It's actually a Rehmoraz.

This OP

it sounds freaky

>> No.12344680

I like the idea of a giant spider sucking people's souls out. Then when the spider matriarch is slain, her new broodlings crawl out of her corpse and try to eat everything. The souls of the former humans/elves have been tainted and twisted inside the spider's body, and they are reborn as instinctive, hungering monsters. With every squished spiderling another otherworldly wail of sorrow echoes through the cavern.
