Okay, so I’m writing a post-apocalyptic story, and what’s a post-apocalypse without mutants? So, I decided I’d create a few. There’s just one problem.
So, after reviewing my writing for them, I feel that they resemble Fallout’s stuff to much, specifically, ghouls and super mutants.
Skinless are supposed to be necrotic creatures that look like zombified humans. They are extremely long-lived, and some emit low levels of radiation. Screamers are supposed to be genetically engineered humans. They are modified to have the strength of a male silverback gorilla, and an average height of about 8 feet tall. They’re also supposed to be immune to aging, disease, and able to withstand higher amounts of radiation. Basically, they’re supposed to be my answer to Super Mutants from Fallout.
As you see, they resemble them a lot. Today when I was thinking about it I decided I’d like to try and change them up. My question is, how do you come up with creatives ideas for creatures?
