This man once witnessed the worst plagues that hit our planet, now he admire the ultimate, most powerful of them, the one that teared humankind apart. Now he walks the deserted world, wearing it’s black robe and a Plague mask, but he is not lonely, around him an aura of death and sufference persist, plagues of the past, present and the future walks with him, thoose who have met this shady figure never came back, upon his touch every single bacteria, virus and pathogens enters your body, causing an inevitable and painful death.
After this brief introduction i am going to describe the Plague Bringer.
-He is a nether creature.
-He always walks, never run, occasionally vanish in a cloud of black smoke, to re-appear somewhere near the player.
-Can be killed only with special artifacts.
-Appear after a month of playing.
-Only one will be spawned for each world.
-He will only have an attack: “Fatal touch”.
-Upon touch you have about 10 minutes before the plague unleash his deadly sympthoms (fever, temperature swings, vomit, loss of bionics functionalities, bloodloss and so on…).
-After transferring the plague, the Plague Bringer will move around the player for five minutes or so before vanishing.
-If killed you can obtain from him the item “The cure to all plagues”.
-“The cure to all plagues” will make the player immune to any kind of pathogen, even the zombie virus, and eventually cure the plague if infected.
-You can still slow down the effect of the plague throught normal medicinals but at a certain point the infection will become incurable (4-5 days).
-If you don’t manage to find and kill the Plague Bringer in this little time you will certainly succumb.
Funsizeninja123 have suggested to define less OP traits for this suggested Monster (I will keep the originals for those of you who would like to see the original idea along with the changes)
-He is vulnerable to every kind of weapon, he is very weak to fire (In the middle ages people tought he worked as a purifier).
-Will spawn after a year.
-Only one of them is spawned, once killed it shall never come back.
-He will only walk, so it’s can be easily outrunned.
-He will still have the “Fatal touch” attack, with all the effects described in the original version.
-His attack can be easily dodged.
-When killed, the player will get the trait “Disease resistant”.
-The player can get, from the body of the Plague Bringer, the antidote for “the plague”.
This “shady” figure is supposed to be a supernatural being that represent plagues that hit our planet, for thoose of you who believe in the bible this may be defined as one of the four Knights of the Apocalypse.
I hope my suggestion is intriguing enough to raise your interest.
