Devilite A Devilite in the initial stages of absorbing its environment
No matter how many times you cut these bastards down they’ll keep coming back up, and depending on their body, you might not be able to cut them at all! They also have that nasty habit of trying to eat anything that gets close, so if you’re gonna stab them, do it quick, and possibly be willing to part with your sword. It’ll all be for nothing unless you destroy that giant pimple in the center, though.Scout:
Let me just say right off the bat that arrows are practically useless against these things; they’ll just consume them to increase their mass, and getting up close with knives is suicide. I have had much better luck just sneaking past the things, since they’re kind of single minded, and in most cases, their movement is pretty slow. If you have no choice but to fight, bringing in some explosives might do the trick.Mage:
Devilites!? Stay away from those things, you fool. They are the remains of a powerful devil, trying to recreate its lost body by absorbing the area around it, including people. It’s insane to try and fight one conventionally, maybe insane even unconventionally. Its body will always regenerate unless you destroy its core, and depending on the body that can be near impossible. A powerful piercing or explosive spell might do the trick if you’re lucky. Anything that’ll just damage the body, like regular fire or lightning, won’t help, but maybe a well flung ice shard or powered up fireball might be able to break through the skin and destroy its center.Crazy Mike:
This thing ate my cow once, worst thing I ever walked in on. We got a divorce soon afterward.Description
: Deadly, ever consuming; Devilite’s are what is left behind when a powerful enough Devils body is destroyed. The blood gathers together and crystallizes into a single organic orb. Despite popular belief, THIS is the creature, not the body it will soon form. By tapping into the ether, the creature can take control of the environment around it, allowing it to make the inanimate animated, and slowly grafts this environment onto itself, in a desperate bid to recreate the body it once lost. The Devilite’s only goal is absorb powerful objects and souls until it has a suitably powerful body once again. It is possible that, given enough time and power, a Devilite CAN restore its original body, effectively bringing the original devil back to life if it does so.
The Devilite’s power is directly related to what it uses to create its body. The one encountered in the Underground was fairly weak due to only having available moss and fungus to comprise its body, and even it was a dangerous monster. Note that the material does not need to be completely organic; a Devilite can form its body out of rock, wood, skeletons, lava, even water or paper if it’s the only thing available.
Note: A Devilites strength can somewhat be determined based on how
close it appears to resemble its original body. A blob of whatever is laying around is still in its early stages, but the more and more “humanoid” it begins to look; the closer it is to restoring its body. It is imperative that Devilites are destroyed BEFORE restoring their body as Devils are far, faaar more dangerous.
Danger Level: 1 to 8 (level depends on body composition and closeness to restoration)
If you ever need to ask the questions "Am I needed? Should I help them?" The answer is always yes. Always.
