    Yeah, there are some problems with his name, but if that taught me anything, its that the Oarfish inspiration was the best I could offer.

    Now that you say it, I do see that too. Starting to creep me out in fact!

    A post back in the old thread of his does indeed related his design to Hofo Pepe, So I agree with ya, fishlike does not help.

    Exactly what I was aiming for. But the movie monster part is true though, hence why some design changes are being made.

    To be honest, Im just as confused as you are. He seems to have some sort of unique energy gaining technique. I still have that to figure out at the moment, because simon does not want another mechanic far as I know.

    Thats exactly what they are like, except after he spawns one, it'll be 2 seconds before it'll launch at the enemy.

    Hell most of the stuff needs to be changed, I only have the updated origin so far. Its been a while since I worked on him. Now on the Flare, the "splash" damage I guess you could call it is not gonna be in anymore. I just forgot to edit that out.

    Note taken.

    Balanced is a better way to say it. like I said, I only have the origin updated so far.

    Lol, of course you would mention the driving force to the origin.

    Yeah, can do that in a jiffy.

    I made it vague intentionally, and I'll definitely do the cliffnotes

    Hey thanks man, really worded it out and helped me alot!

    Not really, there was an element I have mentioned in the previous thread, but I'd rather give you this snippet of the origin.

    I stood there for what felt at least like 4 hours or so, until the breeze picked and blowed what look like a large, multicolored dust cloud on me

    Got a question for you guys. how tall should the King Of herrings be? I'm still trying to keep him to be massive and intimidating as possible, but I can't find the perfect height.

    Are you referring to dimensions in terms of height and length, or just how tall he'll be when he's assuming a vertical stance? Is he supposed to be long and terrifying, or tall and menacing? Or, if you'd like, he could be of a certain height when idle, but when he zooms around, KOH can stretch himself so as to appear longer, then shrink when he has stopped moving around?

    technically length. His archetype is similar to a merman or mermaid. The upper torso (head, arms, and waistline) has a somewhat vertical or upright stance when he isn't moving. something similar to this. The rest of his body, which is the tail, is where the rest of his length resides.

    More likely long, as in long tail.


    Interesting idea. That could be possible for future implementation.

    Btw, on terms of length, I want to leave you with this, this should explain why I still want him to be terrifiyingly long. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_oarfish

    Hmm, I believe the best person to help you would be @GlaciusTS . Good luck :biggrin

    Edit: Perhaps adjust his size to be a fraction of Hofo Pepe? That could be your starting point :writing
