    Whoa! Great one! Thumbs up. totally a must-have. Good stats, too. I'd make him non-recruitable (well, it could be recruited by tweaking stats in the Editor for example, like with horny), like a wild beast that kills lonely wanderers.

    It would be great to have a silent killer. Imagine, it comes across a creature, kills it and wanders off.

    Thanks!
    Ok, you mean non-recruitable like a neutral creature?

    Yes, something that lurks dark caves, far from crowded places, and prowls the starless nights in search for unsuspecting prey. It kills and disappears. It is highly feared, and legends are created about this merciless, mysterious creature.

    If you want to play with it then, should you not be able to convert it if captured?

    No. It's like fighting a dragon in the good old days. you defeat the manticore, you get some great reward. thats all.

    By making it recruitable you loose some of the mystery and uniqueness about this creature.
