Brainstorm Creature Mechanic - Creature production - Ideas needed!
Some random thoughts on non-traditional creature production. The general idea is to have special flavour imps that can't be "bought" but have to be put through some special situations to appear instead.


Trap an imp inside a punching pig, tell orcs to train with said pig for some time - out comes a Tough Imp. He'll defend himself from attacks if there are no Orcs around to fight for him, although he'll sometimes break stuff out of spite, like storage tables/shelves, grinders, orc beds, etc. Optional: From time to time, he'll hit some of his fellow imps to give them a temporary speed boost, hurting them slightly, obviously.

Leave an imp stranded on a 1 by 1 pit/cell until he passes out. Carry him to a bed - once he recovers, he'll become a Crazimp. He'll work twice as fast most of the time, only he'll sometimes do stuff he wasn't asked for, like digging a wall or raising a new one in random places.

Trap an imp outside the dark mothers reach for a while. Once he's neglected for some time, he goes AWOL. He no longer takes jobs from the job queue, he just wonders around exploring. You can still see what he sees, and enemy creatures don't attack him, but he'll be, for all purposes, no longer under your command.
