I played a game once where we had to fight abominations that would use your body as parts to make themselves stronger, arm monsters that looked like sea anemonies made of arms, succubi that would constantly merge the most beautiful parts of those they killed with themselves to become ever more beautiful. even a creature that simply took your muscle mass to become stronger himself.

the players had to graft parts from the creatures onto themselves to fight the creatures, about half way through the game we found out that all the abominations used to be heroes like the PCs and the entire thing was a never ending cycle where each new generation had to protect the cities from the last generation. because there was no way other to fight them. technology was not big in setting and magic was limited to healing and using grafts from certain creatures (lightning abomination shot bolts from its horns you grafted those horns on for lightning shots, fire throwing creature you could graft his arms onto yourself for the ability to manipulate fire) the bigger the graft the more power you could get from it. but you lose your humanity with it as well.

all in all it was a great game.

>> No.28566659

it was great honestly, each time you beat something you could roll to see if there where any salvageable pieces, if there was anything from the salvageable body parts you wanted you could graft it onto yourself. some parts are harder to graft than others and required higher dice rolls and if it failed you would end up wasting the materials. you could try up to three times per game week to graft a limb onto yourself before it was useless for anything. things like fingers and horns where the easiest things to graft, then limbs, eyes and other organs had a high rate of failure but could do awesome useful stuff, like spit acid or see in the dark or see creatures souls (very useful when you are in a fucking swamp and the mosters are lurking beneath the surface)

we once met this crazy guy out in a wilderness, we had no idea how he was surviving amongst all these monsters till he flipped and attacked us. turns out he had an innate ability to cause grafts to fail you sudenly could only use parts that you where born with. our strongman of the group ended up chucking rocks at him from a distance and getting lucky to kill him. we didnt want to but he gave us no choice.

worst part is we could not use his parts to get any power, he had a 100% rejection rate on all his body.

this guy is right>>28569814

Shrykull is a Mudokon God, in appearance a mixture of Scrab and Paramite. The Shrykull has the body of a Scrab, but limbs similar to a Paramite's forelegs protruding from its midsection. It also has a fringe of Paramite facial-digits around its head, forming a sort of crown. A mudokon who has gained the handscars of Paramonia and Scrabania can become the avatar of this creature for a short period of time. Abe successfully completed these trials and therefore gained the power.

The Shrykull's power is mighty; it can electrocute its enemies, as Abe usefully discovered. However, Abe can only summon Shrykull once he has sent a given number of Mudokons all in one go through a Shrykull Bird Portal, which is a regular-looking bird portal with a number floating inside it. For example: if, during gameplay, you find a Shrykull Bird Portal with the number 3 floating in the center of it, you must send a minimum of 3 Mudokons through it to gain Shrykull's power.

Yeah, it's just more of a 'not fitting the theme,' at least of the vampires.
I suppose they'd fit in with a more wamphyri-like angle.

The Necroscope series had vampires that would essentially, I guess, be Tzimsce, Some of the wamphyri (vampires, infected via parasite) would shed blood, flesh, semen, spit, whatever, into vats and grow it like yeast, turning them into...monsters. Zerg-like things of flesh and carapace.

The current 'top' gangrel is pretty much a dragon-thing. Scales, four arms, wings, no legs, massive tail. I figure she just flies around and snatches people walking around, never to be seen from again.

I'll check out the gangrel book, though.

Centimani are Prometheans who have decided they don't want to be human, that they are monsters and should embrace it. So they experiment a lot, creating new pandorans and such. It doesn't have to be that way but it'd be easy to turn it into a fleshcrafting thing.

Perhaps the Dragon's Eye is trying to set up shop and want to eliminate the competition beforehand, or capture the centimani for experimentation.

Necroscope vampires are pretty fun indeed.

On the general topic, I had the idea to go for fun on the mutable flesh and so-on for a superhero character. They'd pretty much run on body horror superpowers. Regeneration, tentacles (or prehensile hair, if they want to be subtle) and so-on, leading up to more extensive things like full-body transformations and pretty much being the same non-differentiated tissue all the way through, and such. I really tend to like the idea of control over one's own biology, and the idea of using that sort of usually horror theme for heroism is amusing to me.

Nope. Image is the human/guana hybrid from Knights of Sidonia. She's an illegal genetic experiment involving horrible alien monsters with perfect control over their own regenerating flesh.

There's more in the manga itself, obviously. Hell, I'll dig up a few pages from the chapters I have saved, even. I do recommend the manga if you like this kind of shapeshifting weirdness and stuff. It's not a major theme, but it's there (and very well drawn). It's also a lot easier to follow than Nihei's previous works.

The aforementioned alien mimicking a mecha, complete with human pilot. The whole suit clearly made of meat with bony organic bits instead of the proper inorganic lines of the original is a fun thing.

I'm actually not sure. That particular guana behaves notably differently than most do, and definitely displays a greater tactical acumen and understanding of humanity's weapons. However, the pilot itself there is probably not independently sapient, as it's just part of the whole, inexplicably reconstructed, down to internal anatomy. It was once implied that the pilot at least potentially or temporarily is, before the horrible alien that made it takes over, though.

No. The entire imitation-robot and its imitation-human pilot are just the literal meat-puppets of the Gauna's "true body," which is a vaguely egg-shaped thing that generates this fleshy/bony mass and hides inside it.
The previously mentioned chimerical hybrid is "pilotable," in that it can contain a human safely inside itself, but it's basically a pretense since the so-called pilot has precisely no say in what the chimera does. There's ostensibly a direct neural control system installed to allow a pilot to take direct control, but it doesn't actually work.

The original mecha, yes. The human/guana hybrid? Oddly, also yes, although she does posses her own mind and personality (the pilot acts more as an adviser, and is there as a fail-safe in case she goes out of control). I somehow suspect that while there's probably a cockpit space one could enter in the mecha-mimicking guana, whatever controls would be unresponsive, and it'd probably just kill you for trying, or eat you or...something. it's not something anybody tried.

planeswalker abilities are ordered +, 0, then -, not 0, + then -
Her first ability should read
0: Choose one: put a +1/+1 counter on target creature, or put a -1/-1 counter on target creature, or proliferate

Her second ability should read

+1: Put a Graft counter on target creature. Creatures you control with a Graft counter get +3/+0. Otherwise, they get -3/-0

her final ability should read

-6: Put a -1/-1 counter on each creature target play controls. Proliferate, then Proliferate again.

Now for balancing, her +1 is better than her 0 because it can outright kill creatures and has the utility of proliferating, they should probably be swapped. A planeswalker ult should almost always win the game when it happens, and a boardwipe is a bit tame for an ult that expensive. keep in mind she has to survive and be untouched for 4 turns to ult

>> No.28576467

We were playing in a bit of a schizo tech setting - it was mostly standard fantasy, but there was quite a bit of magitech-style stuff being excavated all the time. The problem was copying such artifacts was beyond the abilities of even the most skilled craftsmen. Even repairing the more complex machines was extremely hard.

During our adventures we've managed to chance upon an actual mostly-intact manufacturing plant. To the best of our knowledge, it was meant to produce various vehicles. We've mostly kept it secret and contacted the local rulers on trying to organize some way to make it operational again. They've rewarded us handsomely and sent us to a famous artificer who could just be up to such a monumental task. Meanwhile during our adventures there was a string of kidnappings and break-ins by half-construct abominations throughout the kingdom - but we've never managed to track them to their source. The creatures were insane combinations of man and golem, and to our horror we've discovered that the fleshy part of the creatures was composed of former kidnapping victims.

Anyway, once we've arrived at the famous artificer's remote mansion, we've only found his apprentice there - the artificer apparently passed away several years ago. We were nicely received and were assured, over some tea, that the apprentice would visit the factory in about month, although she said she couldn't promise she'd be up to the task of getting it operational. In the end we spent a few nice, mellow days of downtime at the mansion. Our host, the apprentice artificer, was quite nice (even though she spent most of her time locked in her workshop) and we were happy to have a new, promising ally. She was quite skilled and (at exorbitant fees, but we were pretty rich) we got some nice equipment upgrades too.

And then the night after we left we ran into several of the abominations returning with some victims, clearly en route to the mansion.

>> No.28576529

We stormed the mansion and were assailed by numerous half-golems, homunculi and other constructs. We broke into her workshop and discovered it lead to a huge underground complex.

Summing up the dungeon crawl and story - it turned out the whole structure was a mostly-intact Archive containing an enormous wealth of knowledge on all kinds of constructs and techniques to combine flesh, magic and machine. The original artificer discovered the complex, purchased the land and built his mansion over it to study it in secret. The Archive itself was an evil sentient construct - there was a demonic sentience called the Archivist sealed within it, which controlled access to data and helped in interpreting it. The artificer realized the corrupting influence of the Archivist and sealed him away alongside most of the Archive. He decided the safest way to access the information would be to unseal it bit by bit to study carefully. He realized this was a work which could take generations, so he ended up getting an apprentice to carry on his work once he dies.

The curious apprentice managed to secretly access the Archivist on a limited basis, and came under his control (or so we assumed). She murdered her master in his sleep, unsealed the Archive and began to study it, making use of all help the Archivist had to offer. Soon she grasped enough of the theory to create fully working constructs which she used to acquire resources to continue her experiments. As her skill grew, the resources started to include humans to be used in experiments combining man and machine.

Our course was clear - we fought our way through the Archive's chambers to destroy the Archivist. We wanted to free the female artificer from his demonic influence and end this madness.

>> No.28576587

In a short confrontation destroyed the Archivist and were quite proud of ourselves. Yet the female artificer wasn't grateful for being freed like we expected. She was FURIOUS.

It turned out the Archivist had no power over her, she had full control. But he was absolutely essential to the smooth operation of the Archive - without an intelligence embedded within the vast store of knowledge accessing it would be absurdly hard. The enraged artificer rallied her constructs and attacked us, shouting in no uncertain terms what insane horrors she would visit upon our bodies for messing with her work. But she overestimated her forces and abilities. In a relatively short engagement she was horrifically savaged, losing an eye and arm. Realizing she couldn't possibly win the fight, she used her remaining constructs to cover her escape and fled. Yet she didn't flee towards the exit, but the Archivist's chamber. We saw various complex controls when we were there and expected she probably has more dangerous aces up her sleeve.

So just in case, we decided to blow up and burn down the bulk of the Archive. Then we found her slumped against a column in the Archivist's chamber, completely broken. We asked her what it was she planned to do. It turned out that faced with certain defeat, she decided to seal herself within the Archive as a new Archivist, and then seal the Archive itself - she was certain we didn't have the knowledge to unseal it, so she hoped we'd think it lost, leave it alone, and maybe one day someone would find it again and make use of it, with her as the Archivist.

But now the Archive was damaged far beyond repair. Years of work, and centuries of knowledge of a lost civilization - destroyed. She said she had nothing left to live for, and we were free to kill her or just leave her to her fate of bleeding to death.

We told her that's nonsense - she has an appointment at the factory in a month.

I healed her and we left her there with that reminder.

there was a legend that in the beginning about the gods of light and darkness protecting the world for millenia but every so many thousand years another group of gods would make a vie for power in this world, this group of gods raised demons and monsters to try and take over the world and make a place for themselves.

while the gods would fight other gods they did not take part in the mortal world overtly (I thought that was bullshit too) the first human heroes went to fight and eventually became corrupted starting the cycle, the gods eventually drove off the new gods of monsters but this left many of their minions in the world which the humans had to deal with.

over time the corrupting effects of the flesh grafts would lead to the insane monstrous "heroes" to mutate into true monsters. which in turn would beget more monsters.

there where hints that the demon gods had never really been defeated and that was the reason monsters where still in the world and things continued to be pretty shit.

If you're playing 3.5, check out the Necrophage:


It's third-party, but the best grafting class written - and it's not even overpowered. It loses 4 caster levels, but is actually worth it.

The only thing that may need changing is the CR limit on grafts, because it's far too harsh and doesn't really prevent abuse like they intended. As all grafts are already by approval, it's not needed and stops you doing fun things like taking trophies from real enemies.

You can also still take the regular grafting feats - best of both worlds.
