As the story of Ultimon continues, there will be more challenges to face and more goodies to earn. So I’m giving you an opportunity to tell me what sort of adventures you expect to have as your story continues.

There are two categories in this contest:

Monster: Create a new and unique shadow monster that you feel might be considered a greater threat than a normal shadow creature.

Reward: Create a new and unique item (weapon, armor, etc.) that you feel would be an appropriate reward for defeating an army of shadow creatures.

Each category will have a 1st place winner, a 2nd place winner, and a 3rd place winner.

If you’d like to win, you’ll have to work hard and come up with the best idea you’ve ever thought of! Then post your entry in this thread. Be sure to follow all of the contest rules as stated below, or I might mistake your entry for food and nom it!

Good luck!

~ElBhe, aka Best Kitten


First place winners will get their winning entries used in the Ultimon storyline (with credit given in the descriptions!) and 6000 Z-Tokens added to the character of their choice.

Second place winners will get their winning entries used in the Ultimon storyline (with credit given in the descriptions!) and 4500 Z-Tokens added to the character of their choice.

Third place winners will get their winning entries used in the Ultimon storyline (with credit given in the descriptions!) and 3000 Z-Tokens added to the character of their choice.

Time for the winners!

Monsters Category:

1ST PLACE: whackybeanz, for "Shadow Colossus": This monster, as is, is too complicated to code for a single battle. However, the initial concept of a large creature that has raw intimidation factor behind it is a good one. That's part of what made Carnax such a scary threat: it was something you didn't just run into, it was a mammoth beast of such scale that it was guaranteed to terrify new recruits at the mere sight of it stomping towards them. I would love to try and implement something like this in a future event!

2ND PLACE: stratuscone, for "Shadow Crusader": A monster who stuns, then takes the tactical advantage and spikes you with massive damage. This is something that seems relatively simple to implement, and yet hasn't really shown itself yet. I like monsters who use smart tactics in combat, it makes them trickier to beat, exactly what this contest is looking for.

3RD PLACE: afterlifex, for "Sympathetic Shadow Sprite": Some elements of this suggestion I'm likely to remove, but the concept of it is a solid one. Transformation monsters are always fun, and this one seems like it'll be a surprising threat in combat.

HONORABLE MENTION: Rafiq von den Vielen, for "Ishtar": The idea of monsters that take advantage of a player's status inflictions is a good one. The only reason this one didn't make the winner's circle is because there's another entry that has a similar concept to it, but executes it a little bit better.

HONORABLE MENTION: Raventail, for "The Doppelganger": This entry (as well as all the other suggestions which made the player's own shadow into an enemy) couldn't win because I have other plans for the player's own shadow. However, it gave me a fantastic idea for a new monster using a very similar mechanic but in reverse, so that the monster selects a class which directly counters them. I like the thought of a mage walking into battle, and this creature selects a "warrior" format and then uses debuffs and other effects to hamper the mage's casting abilities. And given that, I felt that this idea deserved at least an honorable mention for sparking that sort of creative thought.

Items Category:

1ST PLACE: Aura Knight, for "Twilight Mirror": The item itself has too many effects, I'll probably end up cutting it down to just one core function (likely the first one). However, it's unique and interesting, the item has a large amount of flavor to it and it'll be different for different players and tactics. That all works out in the game's favor, in my opinion.

2ND PLACE: Balu, for "Chiaro Symbiote": I love the idea of a pet that leeches healt in exchange for some sort of benefit to its player. It reminds me of how players enjoyed Embrace the Shadows, and I can see this being popular with BM builds who pump damage into their pets.

3RD PLACE: Rasudido, for "Seal of Primal Shadows": Simple idea, but we need more items like this in the game. I'd prefer having different art for the items that looks similar to the listed items, though, instead of just copying existing art.

HONORABLE MENTION: Dwelling Dragonlord, for "Shadowfeeder Pendant": The idea is a bit too simple to win, but it's an excellent example of the sort of thing I'm looking for. It's not overly complicated with 3+ effects, it's straightforward and easy to use, plus not overly complicated to code. Not winning this time, but the idea's not a bad one.

HONORABLE MENTION: skull x, for "Penumbral Prescriber": Appearance is too similar to Shadow of Doubt, which is undesirable in an entry. But the idea of an armor based around healing instead of tanking or damage isn't a bad one.

Entry Name: The Shadow Vartai Brothers (Monster)
The monster is Cyrus Standing besides Xerxes but with a shadowlike appearance, it would have the same special effect that Xerxes has (deflection of magic because his axes) and some special mana based attacks where Xerxes stands behind cyrus and cyrus would turn into his dragon form and breath fire,they normal attack would be Xerxes slashing with his axes followed by 2 hits of cyrus with his katanas.when they are under 30 percent of they full health Cyrus would eat your pets/guest and he would recover 20 percent of his full hp and they could have a chance to inflict the status dragon fear.
Description: This pair of legendary vartai brothers seem to got somehow corrupted by shadows,if they were extremely powerful on their own...just imagine how powerful they are together and with their new shadowy powers...
PD: sorry if i have any typo...english isn't my native languish Thanks.

Monster: Shadow of the Void

Description: "Can something that comes from emptiness and nothing have a shadow? Unfortunately, it can. You have the feeling that your attacks will have to be very precise to survive this".

The outline of a Void Dragon, but shadowed. As usual for Void Dragons, it does damage to you -and gains SP- every time one of your attacks misses (be it a normal attack, a spell, a pet or guest attack, etc.). But this one also has the Eclipse Dragon's ability to create shadow and dramatically increase its defenses for three turns.

It also can inflict Dragon Fear.

Highest level version: Level 150.


Melee 66
Ranged 66
Magic 66


STR 200
DEX 200
END 150
LUK 125


Fire 200

Earth 200
Energy 200

Void -300
Harm 0

It does Void Damage.
It has a breath attack, but it is rare: only happens when he is hidden by shadows and has enough SP for it (481 SP). This breath attack seeks between Light and Darkness and can inflict Blind.

Entry Name: Shadow Fiend

Concept Art by Lord Areswe

Details about your entry (some manner of visual description or accompanying concept sketch is required, any other details about the entry are optional): A large muscular humanoid shadow with glowing red eyes, long talon-like claws, and huge horns on the sides of it's head. It attacks with its claws. Unlike regular shadow monsters, it has 200% to Light, but when hit by a Light attack, it goes down to -50 and it's attacks gain an extra, element-seeking attack it performs with its horns. It also has Eclipse Dragon's ability to generate shadows to raise it's defense and it's attacks may cause Overshadowed, which lowers END and DEX.
All but Light/Dark/Fire: 90
Fire: 75

Entry Name: Shadowsteel Spear

Concept Art by Lord Areswe

Details about your entry (some manner of visual description or accompanying concept sketch is required, any other details about the entry are optional): A black, shadowy spear with a head that's shaped like a black Luminous Spear head, but wisping and blowing around somewhat, while keeping it's general shape. It randomly changes between Light and Darkness. It's special is the shadows flying off and wrapping themselves around your foe and squeezing. Its special heals based on damage done. Against shadow monsters, it turns to Harm and has +3 BtH, but does 82/85. Special keeps lean, but changes to random elements that aren't Light/Dark.
Regular attacks have -3 BtH and deal 85/82
Special has -8 BtH and deals 85/77

Don't be fooled by how this... thing... appears to look. Ultimon trusts him, so he's gotta have something up his sleeve...even though there is no sleeve.

Analysis Breakdown
All attacks randomly deal Light or Darkness damage.
On his normal attack he can Paralyze* you for 1 turn.
Has an SP skill he can only use when you're paralyzed and he has sufficient SP.
Normal attacks when you are paralyzed heal HP to Ishtar** and cannot paralyze you again. So no chain stuns.
SP regeneration for Ishtar is half the regeneration of a usual monster of adjacent tier and power.

*Ishtar's arrow hits your knee! You can't move!
**The arrow drains some of your essence.

Edit: Fixed something that looked a bit too broken.

AQ User Account: Irisi
AQ Character ID: 17132232

Entry Name: Reflected Shadow


Appearance: A standing mirror with a golden frame. On the mirror is a vaguely humanoid shape, somewhat similar to Shadow of Doubt, except that the eyes are red. Black streaks occasionally appear on the mirror, like jagged cuts. When it attacks, the figure leaps out and lashes at the player, but gets pulled back in at the end of the attack.

Description: A copy of a copy, trapped in its plane just as a shadow is trapped in the Shadow World... Such an existence must have driven this creature mad. Watch out, though; its nature means it is highly adaptable.

Element Modifiers:
All 75% except for Light and Dark
Light/Dark: 40%

Ability: When attacked, every attack (whether it connects or not) multiplies the elemental defense of the attack by 0.6. Defenses are rounded down, for a maximum of 3 times (ending at 16%). This does not apply to light or darkness.

When attacked with light or darkness, it will retaliate the next turn with a powerful attack (lesser element seeks, light and dark; similar to the Razorclaw) that has a chance to blind. The message depends on the type of attack:
If light: 'The brilliant glare has blinded you!'
If dark: 'Darkness engulfs your vision!'

Entry Name: Invoker


Appearance: It's a silver gun-shaped misc.

When equipped, it will give the player -X% resistance to light and dark, also increasing endurance by +XX.

When clicked, a message appears (PERSONAGE!) and the item will cast a spell. A black silhouetted version of the player (like the one in cutscenes) with yellow eyes will rush at the monster and attack it, dealing one hit of light and one of darkness. It also has a 50% chance of attempting to inflict a status called 'You're not me!', which is a renamed poison. The monster makes a save using its endurance.
If the monster fails: 'Your foe denies its true self.'
If the monster succeeds: 'Your foe has accepted its true self.'

Lost in Vanity Faire AQ Q&A


AQ User Account: jks218
AQ Character ID: 74023601

Entry Name: Pernicious Penumbra

Description: A phantasm that once roamed around in search for closure. It ran into Ultimon and was turned into a shadow. Now it seeks vengeance against all those who have hurt it when it was alive. Unfortunately, he stumbled upon you in his quest for revenge in a bad mood.

Appearance: It has a regular human physique--like Giliara, or any other Brilhado, but appears sideways so it looks at the character. To be more precise, its silheouette is like an angel except everything's black. Its eyes glow red like all shadow creatures. It also has wings on its back, but it does not flap them. It levitates above the ground--not flying, levitating. It weilds a sword on its shoulder. The sword is a huge black sword (perhaps similar to the size of the Blade of Awe, although the blade is much larger). The sword has flares around it, like the flares of the sun which lash around but die quickly.

Level: 150
(Regular monster)

Combat Defence:
Melee 51

Magic 51

STR: 0

Water: 100%
Wind: 100%
Ice: 100%
Earth: 100%
Energy: 110%
Light: 50%
Darkness: 50%

Attack 1: (1 Strike; all Magic) It floats swiftly towards the player and slashes. The motion of the blade goes from left to right (monster's perspective). It goes back to its original place afterwards. This deals either Light or Darkness (seeks) and deals *0.90 damage to compensate.
Attack 2: (4 strikes; all Magic) The screen turns black and blue slash marks appear in the area of the player. Whenever the monster has the MP, it uses this spell. This costs 550 MP and deals Darkness on the first two strikes, and Light on the last two. This deals *1.05 damage since it utilizes two elements.

*This monster is susceptible to any stats effects.

Entry Name: It's You...r Shadow?

Description: "You felt very strange going home last night, like something was in your house. But the last time that happened was on Mogloween.... You have a feeling someone.. or something.. was there. Lurking in the shadows. This shadow gives a great reward... that is, if you can beat it."

Essentially a Shadow version of the It's You creature from Mogloween, copying all of your stats and defenses, besides Light, Dark, Void, and Harm, all of which are 0.

Uses your face (if it were covered in ash), your shield and your weapon.
It wears a shadow version of the Deft UltraGuardian Plate, and does the attacks of that Plate.
It can cast an Element-Seeking Spell (200 MP).
If you change weapons/shields, it will also change (as well as Defences/Modifiers).
Can use potions and a Healing Spell (400 MP).

Uses the "Shadow Blade Of Awe," which is a shadow version of the old Blade Of Awe, dealing both Light and Darkness damage.


Shadow Blade Of Awe

Description: "It looks like someone has taken your blade as well, and even worse, it looks like they corrupted it!"

A corrupted version of the Blade Of Awe, doing both Light and Darkness damage.
Even though it's corrupted, it'll still level up with you, and power up to your level.

Monster Entry Name: The Doppelganger (appears in game as <player name>'s Doppelganger)
Details: Appearance: A shadowy silhouette which has three different forms, first slowly arises from the ground as a simple humanoid shadow, then detects player stats, STR/DEX/INT whichever highest, screen flashes, the shadow shade shapes into warrior/ranger/mage forms respectively, if stats are equal, always chooses warrior or mage, warrior over mage. For warrior form, a full body armor and a sword appears on him, similar to War, but has twisting shadows as outline, and completely black. As his ranger form, he wears Hunter like armor, and wields a huge bow, all equipments have same dark shadow effects.

Entry Name - Murodius

This immobile statue is bound with a nefarious, trickster shadow creature Ultimon fought and defeated back in the Shadow Realm, now forcibly serving as an ever-observant guardian of the castle. The stone statue depicts a knight on guard standing on a pedestal. However, its shadow reveals the true form of this monster, a winged humanoid with exaggerated limbs.


Combat Defenses
Melee – 60
Ranged – 60
Magic – 78

Combat Attributes
Strength – 0
Dexterity – 0
Intelligence – 275
Endurance – 275
Luck – 275

Elemental Modifier
Fire - 100
Water - 100
Wind - 140
Ice - 100
Earth - 70
Energy - 100
Light - 175
Darkness – 40

Status Immunity – Poison, Bleeding

Special Effects
If struck by a Light attack, the monster laughs ("Haha" text pops up above the statue's head) and generates twice the usual Sp this round.

If struck by a physical or ranged attack, the damage is reduced by 15%.

As its SP bar fills up, the monster's shadow grows larger which gives players a hint that he will soon be using his SP attack.


Regular Attack
The monster's shadow stretches towards the player and slashes at them, randomly dealing a light or darkness magical attack.

Spell Attack
The statue's eyes briefly flashes red and casts an earth spell using the Cave Collapse animation. This has an MP Cost.

SP Attack
The monster has its own version of Embrace the Shadow (hinting at where Seekrat might've gotten the inspiration for his own spell) with the same animation but it doesn't have any self-inflicting damage and is accompanied by a long string of "hahas" during the animation. It has a large SP cost.

The monster alternates between its regular attack and its spell attack starting with its spell attack until it runs out of MP. Then it will attack with its regular attack until it has enough SP to attack with its SP attack.

Entry Name: Shrouded Wild
Appearance: A grey and white cub fox with a shimmering white and black shroud surrounding it. The moment you hit it with an element other then Darkness or Light is changes. It then becomes a large fox. More build like a wolf and the size of a bear, it also no longer wears the shroud.

Stats: When in cub form all elemental modifiers are 120% except for Light and Darkness which are 50% (Harm and Void are at 0%), it's defences will be according to it's powerlvl +6. It's stats are distributed amongst Int, Char and Luck. And in that order of importance, each stat has a max of 250. This form triggers Anti-Shadow weapons. It's does either Light or Darkness damage, 3 hits. 2 beams of shadow and a leaping attack.

In it's enraged form all elemental modifiers drop 50%, Harm and Void rise to their normal standards. It's defences will be -6 instead of the cub forms +6. It no longer triggers Anti-Shadow weapons. All stats are distributed amongst Str, End and Luck. Same distribution order as in the cub form. It's attack is the element used by the Hero and either Light or Darkness, 2 hits. One is a shockwave of the Heroes element and then either Light or Darkness.

Cub form: When hit by either light or darkness it has a change to trigger the ability: Devouring Shroud. This will increase it's damage output the following turn by 25%. It then heals it's sp to 25% of damage done and 25% to it's hp. For this ability to go in effect it needs at least a certain amount of sp and to pass a roll based on it's Char/Int vs Hero Char/Luck.

Enraged form: Standard Chi armor ability coupled with: Exposure. When hit by the heroes element it lower's that elemental modifier to 0.

Description: This little furry creature has rather chaotic tendencies when dealing with the elements. Rumours say the only reason why Ultimon "aqcuired" this cute little beasty is to contain her.

(Little background, Ultimon discovered this creature while seeking for formidable beast to convert to the shadows. Looking upon this cute little thing he thought: "Oh why the hell not." Unfortunaly for him the creature absorbed the shadows instead of being consumed by them. And not in the sence that you control your shadow counterpart. After that he made sure the creature could not roam around lore consuming all of the shadows that he had released.)

This is a miscellaneous item.
Cost to activate: 65 sp
Cost per turn: 32 sp
When activated it gives the user +5 to all defenses and also decreases their light and dark resistances by 10.
The item can also be clicked on during the player's turn. This will open up three options for the player to choose.

1. Veil of Shadows: http://oi47.tinypic.com/w9b53p.jpg

Depending on your starter class, you gain certain abilities. Players who have the mighty, deft, and insightful armors each get the fighter, rogue, and mage abilities respectively. The same can be said about players with steel plate, leather armor, and mage robes.

Fighter: Strength increased by 25. Against shadow creatures, all melee weapons deal 150% damage. Against other kinds of monsters, damage increase will remain 110%. Also, there is a small chance to stun shadow creatures for a turn.*

Rogue: Dexterity is increased by 25 and ranged weapons deal 135% damage when fighting shadow creatures. Against other monsters, damage will remain at 105%. When fighting shadow creatures, there is a chance to regain hp while blocking a hit.** The heal would be similar to that of the deft armor of awe.

Mage: Intelligence increased by 25. Magic weapons do 120% damage and spells do 140% damage. This only applies when fighting creatures from the shadow universe. Against any other kind of monster, damage will remain at 105% and 115% for magic weapons and spells respectively. While in combat against creatures of shadow, you have a chance to heal mana on every hit you land against your opponent. ***

2. Cursed Shadow: http://oi45.tinypic.com/5ydend.jpg

Each turn, at a cost of 45 sp, this ability attempts to curse the monster. If successful, the monster receives a "CURSED" status and loses 25 strength, 25 dexterity, and 25 endurance. While under the status of curse, the monster deals less damage. It's effectiveness is reduced to 60%.* The cursed status lasts for 2 turns. When a "cursed" monster attacks you and misses, it loses 10% hp and you heal 5% hp and 5% mp. Against creatures not of the shadow universe, this ability reduces strength, dexterity, and endurance by 10 for two turns. As always, the monster does a save roll. If the roll is successful, it won't be affected by the "curse." **If not, it will be affected.*** The hp and mp regeneration side-effect will only occur when fighting a shadow creature.

3. Blink! : http://oi50.tinypic.com/2r4qyj8.jpg

This ability grants the player the chance to trap a shadow creature in stasis. In other words, it stops time for them. When successfully applied, the monster can either be trapped in time for either 1, 2, or 3 turns. The monster does a save roll to counter the ability. If successful, the monster is not frozen in time.* However, if save roll is unsuccessful, the monster is frozen in time.** Only works against creatures from the shadow universe. This has no effect against other kinds of creatures.***

*: "The monster is awestruck"
**: "Rejuvinate! Rejuvinate!"
***: "Insight"
*: "Weakened"
**: "Enemy is hurt badly, but presses on."
***: "Cursed"
*: "Can't stop me!"
**: "Time-locked"
***:"This creature is not a shadow."

Description: This item grants you power against the creatures of the Shadow Universe. Use it well.

If it has enough MP, he will cast a spell that will lesser element seek between magic Fire and magic Light. [Fire seeking casts FTWBBQ; Light seeking casts Skyblade (both were spells from The Old One implying that they are part of the Shadow Universe sorta... so I think it makes sense having these spells to cast] However, these attacks are stronger than usual because of the weapon he's holding (Sila's Staff) if possible. I don't want to end up breaking balance standards so the spell boost is optional.
After he runs out of MP, he will use a 2 hit magic darkness and light attack that also regains tons of mana. Sort of like the Nagas when they run out of MP.
On his entrance, he has a chance to inflict you with "Intimidated* for 1 turn, 50% chance of not acting.
*Renamed Afraid

The Shadowmancer was once an adventurer like you, but he was unfortunate enough to be caught in Ultimon's massive Extreme Lore Makeover project and ended up being consumed by the Shadows. The corruption also gave him secrets of the Shadow realm, so be careful.

Appearance: He looks like a normal adventurer wearing the Tenebromancer Robes except he has the coating of a normal Shadow monster (the wispy black tendrils and dark aura) and SCARLET colored eyes to distinguish him as a higher ranked Shadow creature (although this part is absolutely optional... idk if it makes sense story line wise though...). In his hands though, he has a weapon that looks like Sila's Staff (Mage's favorite weapon :D).

MP attack: He does the same animation as the wizard robes when attacking and casts whichever spell does more damage.
Regular attack: The monster aims his weapon at you and shoots an attack that is a mix of the regular attack animation from Lumenomancer and Tenebromancer. So it's basically two or three orbs of light mixed with shadowy tendrils flying towards the enemy. At the same time, he regains about 33% of a regular spell cast so he can cast his MP attack every 3 turns after running out of mana.
Entrance: The screen turns black and he pops up on his side with a flash of light. This has to look a bit intimidating for the first effect though.
Death: He disappears like the Tenebromancer.

TRIGGER EFFECT (also the MC boost)
Against monsters tagged as "Shadow," the armor automatically seeks between the three different attacks depending on what the lowest combat defense is. If they are all the same, then the armor does whatever the default weapon type animation. (So equipping a Melee weapon against a Shadow creature with flat combat defense will default to the melee animation.)

There is no damage penalty for switching combat types... So if you have a melee weapon equipped but the seeking converts to magic, you will not get a .75* damage reduction for doing magic weapon attack. However, magic weapons will deal .75* damage even if it deals melee or ranged attacks.
Basically the armor uses the same formulas for damage and everything; the only different thing is that the attack can either be melee/ranged/magic and the leans due to the different forms. I guess a similar in game example would be the Hunting Horns that use INT for damage and does Melee damage BUT deals .75* as a result.

If the above is combat type thing is not possible, then the armor could just adjust it's own combat defenses depending on the attack it was hit by.
Getting hit by a combat type raises that combat defense by +2 for a max of +6 for the armor. No debuffs on the other combat defenses though. They stay the same unless the monster attacks using that combat type.

Ex. Getting hit by Melee once makes MRM to 49/47/47. Getting hit by Ranged twice only makes MRM to 47/51/47. Getting hit by Ranged twice and melee once makes MRM by 49/51/47.

Become a living Shadow and strike fear into your enemy's heart as you change into their nightmares! Against creatures of the Shadow Realm, it becomes even more deadly!

The basic armor part of it looks like the Whispering Rainment except it's entirely covered with darkness aura like regular Shadow monsters. On the back, there's a flowing black cape that's basically just like the Overlord Armor's cape. On the hand part of the armor, there is a big red gem. There is an eye that you can see through the hood. Eye color is your regular eye color as well like with Shadow of Doubt.

Entrance: You appear from a Shadow-y portal from the ground and leap up and land then get up.
Melee attack: Your entire body turns itself into the form of the Raydius Dragon outline (still shrouded in Shadows of course) and chomps the enemy for one inaccurate but powerful hit. Another alternate look could be the Shadow Hydra form. Then you go back to your normal spot and then turn back into your old self.
Ranged attack: You transform into a Shadow Dragon and hits the monster with a strong breath attack for 2 hits of accurate ranged damage.
Magic attack: You transform into a Shadow version of a Jotun Shevite and attack with it's normal spell type attack that takes the sword into the ground and shoots a large orb of inaccurate magic damage at the enemy.
Death animation: You simply disappear back through the portal that you appeared from and don't appear again.
Block animation: Same as Whispering Rainments. I heard the Assassins learned -side stepping from LB's order so I think it's fine to dodge similarly :P

Entry Name: Penumbral Corrupter

Level: 150

Heavy XP lean

Melee: 50

Magic: 50

Water: 90%
Wind: 120%
Ice: 90%
Earth: 90%
Energy: 90%
Light: 10%
Dark: 10%

Effect: If it has enough SP, it will use a skill, which is four hits, alternating between Light and Darkness. If at least one hit from the skill connects, it will attempt to Control* the player for two turns. The player can resist** with a save, at a -15% penalty:

Level: 150 vs PlayerLvl
Major: MonsterCHA vs PlayerCHA
Minor: MonsterINT vs PlayerINT

* You feel the shadowy corruption taking root in your mind....
** The shadowy corruption is strong, but your will is stronger!

For every turn that the player is Controlled, their light and darkness modifiers decrease by 1%, but the Corrupter's combat defenses increase by 3.

If it doesn't have enough SP, it instead uses a two-hit attack, which randomly does darkness or light damage. Both the normal attack and the skill do magic damage.

Description: This ancient and powerful shadow is one of Ultimon's most trusted generals, and has dedicated its existence to serving him. Very few have met it and lived to tell the tale. Watch out, because it is said to have the ability to control the minds of its victims, and even transform them into shadows themselves!

Appearance: A tall, bulky humanoid figure, wearing a raggedy cloak (which is colored like Ultimon's armor). It has large head resembling that of a cobra, and like most shadow creatures it is pitch black. It has narrow glowing red eyes. The cloak ends at the knees, revealing skeletal legs that end in enormous eagle-like talons. It has four skeletal arms, each wielding solid black swords (preferably katanas). However, the creepiest part of it is the fact that there are six long, writhing black tentacles emerging from its back, through rips in the cloak, and each tentacle has a cobra-like head, complete with glowing eyes.

When it does its normal attack, it teleports forward in a flash of light and strikes the player twice with its swords before teleporting back. When it does the skill, it instead blast four large energy beams from the tentacles on its back in succession. Depending on whether a hit does darkness or light damage, the beams will be either black, with white lightning crackling off them, or white with black lightning, respectively.

When it dies, it explodes dramatically into spheres of black energy, which quickly fade away.

Summary: A definite glass cannon monster. It hits hard and has a dangerous status effect, but minimal health.

Shadow Shogun

Champion boss monster with a focus on Melee defense, STR, DEX, and END. Appears like a Shadow version of Hulk Shogun, only wields a katana instead of the firearm. Can spend SP to perform an attack that does 25% damage, but inflicts a debuff that lasts for three turns to the player’s DEX and STR*if STR>, or DEX and INT** if INT>STR. Lost MP will be returned if INT is restored. If STR=INT, it will go for the first. Roll to save*** is Player END/LUK vs. Shadow Shogun STR/LUK. Further, all of the Shogun’s attacks deal 110% damage, but each turn, he takes *[(hits missed in turn/hits attempted in turn]*.5] of the damage of a regular attack to himself in Harm damage*. (If the detecting STR/INT can’t work in practice, a flat debuff to efficiency would work as well. Say, reduced to 55.66666% efficiency). Monster seeks between Light and Darkness damage.If the player’s Light and Darkness resistances are equal, then each hit is random.

Description: This hulking warrior rises from the shadows to subjugate new commoners under his harsh hand for his friend Ultimon! Some say the shadow blade he bears is cursed to strike foes harder, or should it fail, draw blood from its wielder…

Entry Name: Shadow Robot

Darkness Element

It is, in totality, an Elite Boss, and should receive rewards as such, but it has three separate forms, each of which is equal in power to a Normal (Power 1) Tank/Tank/Glass Cannon monster. (Or it could be a Champion Elite Boss, with each of the forms as a Champion monster... depends on how much greater of a threat this "greater threat than a normal shadow creature" should be.)

Form 1: Tank
Combat Defence: No lean.
Attributes: High HP, low MP. Stat priority is END/DEX/STR/LUK.
Element Modifier: 25% for all Elements except Light/Darkness, which are 10%.
Appearance: A Shadow (black interior, hazy outline, glowing red eyes) of a bulky, heavily armored, roughly human-shaped robot.

Form 2: Heavier Tank
Combat Defence: Defenses lean toward whatever combat style you used against the first form, and there is an overall increase.
Attributes: High HP, low MP. Stat priority is END/DEX/STR/LUK.
Element Modifier: 20% for all Elements except the one with which you did the most damage against the first form, which becomes 15%. (And Light/Darkness, which are still 10%.)
Appearance: Same as Form 1.

Form 3: Shadow Nanobots
Combat Defence: Defenses lean toward high Ranged.
Attributes: Low HP, high "MP." Stat Priority is INT/DEX/LUK/END.
Element Modifier: 100% to all except Light/Darkness, which are 50%.
Appearance: I'm thinking something like a Shadow version of Gray Goo - there aren't any eyes to be glowy-red, but the nanobots are colored black with a hazy outline.

  • Upon beginning the battle, the message "The Shadow Robot is heavily armed and armored!" is displayed at the top of the screen.
    • In the first form, the Shadow Robot attacks by launching small rockets from its back, doing eight hits of Ranged Darkness/Light (random) damage.
    • It also has an SP Skill that it will use if it has enough SP-- its hands will transform into hammer-like shapes and smash down on you, with a chance to Daze you ("You begin to see stars in the Shadowy haze! Is that Syrine in that constellation over there...?") or not ("You manage to avoid being Dazed by the heavy blow!").
  • After bringing the Shadow Robot to 0 HP for the first time, a large crack appears in the armor and the Shadow Robot sags to the ground as if defeated. A small cloud of Shadowy nanobots exits the crack in the armor and repairs the machine. It rises once more, and the message "The Shadow Robot initiates its repair protocol! Be prepared for a second fight!"
    • In the second form, the Shadow Robot attacks in the same way as the first.
  • After bringing the Shadow Robot to 0 HP for the second time, the entire exterior of the robot disintegrates. All that's left is a cloud of the Shadowy nanobots. "You have utterly destroyed the exterior of the Shadow Robot, but its inner workings remain intact!"
    • In the third form, the Shadow Nanobots are "MP"-users (more like EP-users, but whatever). They have three spells.
    • The first skill is used when above 50% HP and when they have enough "MP" to use it-- it is an attack in which the Nanobots surround themselves with a black-colored energy. It is then discharged in a blinding flash of light, dealing one hit of Darkness/Light (random) damage. It has a chance to Blind you ("The impossibly bright light Blinds you!"/"You cannot see in this oppressive darkness!" - the message depends on the element of the attack) or not ("You endure the assault upon your vision!")
    • The second skill is used when below 50% HP and when they have enough "MP" to use it-- it is a healing spell in which the nanobots just seem to move around. "The nanobots repair themselves!"
    • The third skill is used when they haven't the "MP" to use either of the first two skills-- there isn't any attack, it's just pure "MP" regeneration.
    Description: Mt. Thrall is just north of the Veil... Could it be that Ultimon's scouts have stolen a prototype from Hollow Stoneforge? Whatever its origin, this robot's directives have been corrupted, and its only objective now is your destruction.
    Entry two: Scepters of Shadowy Sustenance (utility 100% Proc Magic weapon)

    This is a L150G version for a sample:

    Scepter of Shadowy Sustenance

    Level: 150
    Power Level: 153

    Element: Light
    Type: Magic
    Damage: 14 - 34
    BtH: +19

    Hits: 4
    Element: Light, Darkness, MPHeal, MPHeal
    Type: Magic
    Damage: 165% Base and Random, 165% Base and Random, 157.78125% Base and Random, 157.78125% Base and Random
    Stats: 327%, 327%, 312.69375%, 312.69375%
    BTH: +19 plus Stats for the first two hits, latter two are auto-hit and target the player
    Rate: 100%
    Note: This is treated as a normal player attack.

  • The "Special" deals *1.02 damage to account for having no real Special. (Not factored in above.)

    Yum, Shadowy food! (Oh, wait... Like I said, I'm new! The old narrator is now on leave for something about a kitten.) Er, I mean... This scepter is for Mages who like casting spells: it allows you to regain mana by drawing power from the Shadows it creates! (Better?)

    (Analysis: 100% Special Magic weapon, total damage normally 550% BR, 1090% S, divided by four for four hits. First two hits multiplied by 1.2 for the awkward elements, latter two by 0.9*.85*1.5 for auto-hit, reliable healing, and MP instead of HP. Whole thing is multiplied by 1.02 for having no real special.)

    It looks sort of like a caduceus, but there are no wings and the entwined snakes are replaced by curvy shadows. The animation for the "Special" involves the weapon rising like all weapons do during casting, the two shadows uncurling and flying toward the enemy and hitting it once each (for the first two hits) and then returning to the rod, which glows blue twice (for the second two hits).
