OIvxTioArMd6uGp Posted December 16, 2012 Share Posted December 16, 2012 Hello, first time poster here. Didn't find anything to do with this in particular, so I decided to share my idea. I was thinking about how you could have a book telling you about the monsters in don't starve, and a little about them. Not a strategic guide, but more of a general overview of them.For example:Monster file/entry #67, HoundsHounds are known to attack in packs, causing wounds with serrated, razor-sharp teeth. They usually howl before striking, probably a sign of a battle cry. Although many are black in colour, some may be orange-red, bursting into flames when slain. It is unknown whether this alternate colour shows gender or an authoritive rank. Nevertheless, they are dangerous and should be confronted away fro flammable objects.Not a very good entry, but I tried to make it sound more of a written down thing coming from one who has seen their behavior, and not a robot writing it. A sort of not breaking the fourth wall thing, if you get me.Then, prehaps, we could learn more about said monster's origins by collecting at least one of each of it's drops, only by killing said thing, and not killing, let's say, a spider in an attempt to get the one monster meat required to learn more about the hounds.So, an example on how this could work, again using hounds as an example: They are believed to be the pets of the devil only known as Maxwell, corrupted by the darkness of night.Obviously it'd probably be longer if it got in, but this is still just an example.But how would it be filled up, and where would it be? I think that it should be filled up when you kill or get killed by a mob, and it should be placed in a familiar fashion to the map ingame or on the main menu.Then, we have things that don't drop items or cannot be killed. Namely, the darkness at the moment as far as I know. It could be unlocked when everything else has been done completely done, but that seems generic and boring. How about when sanity gets included, getting killed by the darkness when fully insane could get you it? Just my two cents, and although this will probably not be included due to what It might possibly take to do it, and in the event it does it'd probably be a low priority, at least sharing ideas is what makes this sub fourm fun!Feel free to drop suggestions in!
