    Default Rate That Creature!

    Welcome to Rate That Creature, or RTC. The rules are simple. I state a creature and the next rates the creature depending on the following.

    1. Usefulness-The Higher the number, the more useful
    2. Annoyance-The Higher the number, the more annoying
    3. Attraction-The Higher the number, the easier to get one
    4. Fitting In-The Higher the number, the more they belong inside Dungeon Keeper.
    5. Torture-The Higher the number, the more you like the creature's torture for whatever reason, usually in reference of DK1. In the case that the creature has no torture (DK2 or it shows that weird animation) you may pick one out out your imagination or leave it blank.

    Then he or she picks another creature for the one after him or her to rate. Remember to state a reason after each rating. And you can't use the same creature unless 5 different creatures pass by. The point of this is to see the other side of things, so we can see the creatures better.

    Ex.

    The previous person states Horned Reaper

    Useful 5/5
    The Ultimate Melee Fighter
    Annoyance 4/5

    Not so useful against magic and when he gets angry, he attacks my other creatures.

    Attraction 3/5
    I have to wait for the proper ingrediants, which is difficult on some levels.

    Fitting In 5/5
    An evil demon who is the symbol of Dungeon Keeper fits in well.

    Torture 4/5
    While the Horned Reaper's torture doesn't exist, I imagine it would be the Horned Reaper being stabbed by his own scythe. Very fitting for one who will betray his allies to satisfy his killing desires.

    Next: Fly

    ---

    So now let's play! I'll state first.

    What does the next person think of the Spider?

    Useful 5/5
    The First decent Insect you get, with freeze!

    Annoyance 1/5
    Not really annoying as it is amusing to watch them freeze prisoners, but they do kill your Flys.

    Attraction 5/5
    Simple, a Hatchery that is 3x3, and a lair of course.

    Fitting In 6/5
    A Giant Spider fits in any Dungeon like a Sandwich!

    They're okay, the first Support Creature in the Dungeon Keeper series.

    Annoyance: 5/5
    They ALWAYS go for the Guard Room, they don't train unless you force them to, and I had alot of Dark Elfs that didn't make a Lair.

    Attraction: 4/5
    Once you get a Guard Room, they will come...

    Fitting In: 2/5
    If you give her a REAL Dark Elf (Drow) look, she will fit in PERFECTLY.

    Next: Demon Spawn

    Demon Spawn

    Useful: 2/5
    They're good melee fighters, but useless when you get better fighters. They are easily killed, too. I often find myself getting dragons first.

    Annoyance: 1/5
    These have got to be the least annoying creatures in the game. The only thing that bothers me is seeing them dead alot, and that they fight with Hell Hounds but I rarely have both.

    Attraction: 4/5
    You're getting them if you want creatures higher than level 1. But as you venture on, getting them is harder as other creatures come in. But that's good as they become outdated by that time.

    Fitting In: 5/5
    They fit in completely well. One of the best examples to show what Dungeon Keeper should have. It is a baby. But it isn't like any other you've seen. It has claws and likes to kill. Plus it forms into a Dragon. It could be called Dragon Larva... let's be glad it is called Demon Spawn instead.

    Next: Dragon

    they train fast, attack well, and heal.

    Bile Demon (dk2)

    Useful: 3.5/5
    Bile demons are your best fighters untill the real help comes in the form of vampires, black knights and dark angels. While they have massive health they ARE slow, decreasing their usefulness significantly. They can manafacture and are obviously stronger than trolls and I personally believe they can do manafacture better.

    Annoyance: 4/5
    Too slow. I've seen countless times they become angry because they coudn't find any food.... while being in the hacthery!!!

    Attraction: 4/5
    It's not that difficult to get a large hacthery and a workshop.

    Fitting in: 5/5
    I consider bile demons to be alongside Horned Reapers to be an icon of the Dungeon Keeper series. Though I would like that the bile demon of DK2 was more similair to the one in DK1. But hey, this issen't the place to discuss DK2.

    Next: Vampire (dk1)

    Vampire (DK1)

    Useful: 6/5
    This depends more on the person. I see the vampire as the ultimate surviver unit as can resurrect and has drain and such. He's seems quite good against alot of enemies. His early use of Teleport gets him around.

    Annoyance: 5/5
    His usefulness is balanced out by his annoyingness. He has a tendancy to got to the Temple sometimes and gets himself angry. Have you ever watched a level 6 Vampire ever try and destroy a Dungeon Heart by himself? Slow... And he fights with my warlocks too!

    Attraction: 2/5
    Getting Vampires when playing by the rules is a little hard. This means they show up durring the battle (Unless your warlocks are beating up your passing imps) and thus doesn't make much use of thier Resurrect ability.

    Fitting In: 5/5
    Are you kidding? The Vampire is a creature of the night. Pretty good with scary stories or with the case of "Dracula: Dead and Loving It", comedies. Though it had to be changed a bit, the vampire's drain is more of his bite. Which makes sense for him to use it.

    Next: Black Knight

    Combat pit can be a bit expensive, but thats all. Relatively easy.

    F/I
    5/5
    I'd say a perfect fit. A Knight clone? maybe. Who cares? For me, he is one of the most evil creatures in the game. What else needs to be said?

    Next: Dark Mistress (dk1)
