Broken Weave Dev Diary 4: Monster Mashup
Welcome back to our ongoing series of developer diaries for Broken Weave, the post-apocalyptic tragic fantasy setting for 5th edition. Today, we continue our previews for the creatures of the Broken World, and how we created them during the early development of the game.
With the concept of Decay set firmly in our minds, we began to explore the idea of splicing together creatures from traditional fantasy worlds, to create new and terrifying creatures.
Surprisingly, not all of our results turned out to be horrible! Sometimes they were just this side of cute. Or at least, cute as creatures in the Broken World can be.
But of course, even the cutest of Rat Dragons can’t stay cute for long if they are left in the wild to grow feral. Adventurers should watch their footing in old buildings, or they might disturb their nest… and they are terribly territorial.
Join us in our next dev blog, where we’ll begin revealing and exploring how we created the character classes you can expect to play as when the game launches.
