I'll cut to the chase. I think a aggresive centipede would be awesome. A lawnmower in grass areas would be epic. A neutral stick bug would be sweet. Lastly an aggressive garden snake would be fantastic. Centipede - Typically drier, flat, areas or underground. Hide could be used for better base upgrades like reinforced walls. The legs could be used for scimitars. Stick Bug - Wandering around a lot of places, but mostly the giant tree. Legs can be used to make the rod of a fishing pole to catch tadpoles, etc. Lawnmower - Leaves a trail of grass planks and either grass or dead grass chunks. The chunks depends on the area being mowed. Garden Snake - In thick grass or weeded areas. Can also be found exploring the berry bushes. Fangs could be used as upgraded spear ends or reinforced spike traps. Shedded skin could be used as a pitfall cover.
I believe we've discussed this issue indirectly before, but I wanted to make a poll about it. This may seem like a small thing, but I think it's things like this that greatly determine the overall "feel" of the setting (comfortable, uncertain, risky, etc.). Keep in mind this only applies to the overworld; there could be hidden entrances to dungeons in areas considered "safe". Obviously this kind of thing would vary a bit from town to town depending on where they were located (ex. on the frontier, or in the heartland of a political state), but I still think that many RPGs demonstrate a pattern of quite abrupt (to the point of feeling artificial) transitions between civilization (urban centers) and wilderness (everything else), leaving civilized but rural areas out of the picture, so I am curious to hear other people's thoughts.
This post pretty much: Suggested thread by mrstark. Having the "Orc Slayer" makes Orc's lose morale? Maybe they hate the sword and they instead gain morale? (that's only related if there's going to be some sort of "Morale"). Likewise, having a Torch/Light source out could allow you a safe passage through a horde of bugs/wolves or whatnot that back of due to the light? ("I don't like the light"-monster) Thoughts? What's the potential with the idea?
