So it probably seems pretty quiet around here and that might lead one to infer that not much is happening art-wise, right? Wrong! For the last few weeks I’ve been putting together some special monsters for Nevermet Press. I’ve been given a pretty free rein to develop whatever I want as long as it incorporates steampunk elements and brings something new to some of the tried and true monster types. These will then be passed along to some creative writing folks to make into full-fledged game monsters. It is a total reverse on how things are usually done and I like it.
The first one out of the gates is an alchemical vampire, a Nosferatu type with hypodermics for fingertips connected into his blood and body fluids. I don’t know if he drains or injects or both. I don’t know what effects his blood and such would have on a victim. That is for the writer to figure out but I like the possibilities.
