Proposal: Attributes meets Mutations

Self-killed, failed by Kevan.

Enact a new rule, “Monster Attributes”:

After a monster’s initial creation is completed, the initial creator of the monster shall make a post announcing its birth, with the word ‘Birth:’ and the monster’s name in the title. In this post, e will bestow an attribute to the monster. This attribute shall be listed in the wiki page for the monster, under a section labeled ‘Attributes’.

The next two attributes listed in comments to that post shall be likewise assigned to the monster, assuming each attribute is suggested by a different Kaiju God. These attributes shall also be listed on the monster’s wiki page. If either or both Kaiju Gods assigning attributes are different than the original creators, then their name(s) shall be listed on the wiki page after those of the original creators, after the phrase ‘assisted by’.

Each attribute assigned to a monster should correspond to something noted by the assigner from its composite image, and shall be a phrase describing that attribute, such as ‘Terrible Gnashing Eye Teeth’ or ‘Wobbly Wonder Warts’. Following this phrase shall be the mutation given by the attribute, which should generally fit the description of the attribute. The mutation shall be chosen from those listed in the “Monster Mutations” following this rule.

If e believes that an attribute is inappropriate for the monster, Tokyo may at any time veto any attribute or mutation, reassigning another in its place.

Enact a new sub-rule to “Monster Attributes”, titled “Monster Mutations”:

When selecting an attribute to assign to a monster, the Kaiju God will choose a mutation from the following list to associate with that attribute. Only a single mutation may be assigned to a single attribute. However, the same mutation may be assigned to multiple attributes, if the assigning Kaiju God feels it’s appropriate.

  • Fire-Breathing
  • Radioactive
  • Agile
  • Flying
  • Aquatic
  • Gargantuan
  • Robotic
  • Evil
  • Supernatural
  • Invisibility
  • Powerful Attack
  • Powerful Defense

kudos to kevan of course—if we still had bananas, i’d have also proposed assigning a couple…

Because the ones you added don’t make sense with the rest. It is not an ivisiblity monster, it is an invisible monoster. Invisibilty would be a trait possessed by a monster.

Good: Agile Bad: Agility
Good: Flying Bad: Flight
Good: Invisible Bad: Invisiblity

Plus Powerful Attack and Powerful Defense are just lame period. You never hear of a “powerful attack” monster.

against One attribute selected by the creator and the other selected by the first player to wander along still seems like an odd way to do it.
