So, I tried my hand at a statless monster. I hadn’t intended for it to be statless, but I wanted to create something that acted like a virus or a poison, but is otherwise harmless. I realized that giving it stats thus made no sense.
Flikers appear as the shimmer of the sun on waters, as the sparkle on snow on a bright day, as the glitter cast by a young woman’s sequin dress, and anywhere else light twinkles. Usually they pass through the air harmlessly. But when infused with light, they gain the temporary ability to enter the eyes of anyone looking directly at them. Once inside the body, they disrupt the host’s senses, slowly driving them insane. The afflicted have run off cliffs, clawed out their own eyes, and dumped boiling water over their head. Only extreme measures or luck will save them. Administering a cure can be dangerous, as the Flikers often appear as the glint in their victims’ eyes and thus spread to another.
Instinct: To infect and spread
Poisonous, Minuscule, Infectious
No HP, Armor or Damage Die. See special moves.
Get inside you and confuse your senses
Slowly make you go insane
Spread to someone else
