Information:
Manavedes are the creation of a strange magic using creature, who believed he could create servants to serve his entire family, but little did he know that his Tower was filled with many Centipedes, having not been cleaned in a long time, and his carelessness led to his family's demise, as he raises his hands and attempted Forbidden Magic about the Tower. The Millions of Centipedes grew, their bodes changing from what they once were. The top of their heads has turned into a gaping maw of the creature, two big 'spider' bladed legs at the front of it's body. The place that used to be it's mouth now fairs a horn, and four razor sharp teeth. The new creatures, Manavedes, devoured the magic using creature family, bone and all. As quickly the strange came to show their powerful magic, as quickly as they went when their own magic became their downfall from a accidental creation that devoured them all. These creatures, Manavedes, now roam the land in search of more magic using beings to fill their hunger of the arcane.


Behavior in Dungeon:
The Manavede is a pretty basic fighter. They do what almost all other Creatures do, train, eat and sleep. However, the Manavede is still a Insect, it's presence in the Training Room will increase the training speed of any other Insects in the Training Room at the time. (Other Manavedes are not effected by this.) Be sure to give Manavedes their own separate lairs from your magic users, or you'll be missing a few of them. However it seems, Manavedes has no interest for actual magical creatures.


When the Manavedes is fighting a mage, instead of swinging it's spider leg blades at them, it'll use it's mouth to take chucks out of them, pleasing it's hunger.

Manavedes also enjoy the taste of Imps. Instead of attacking and killing enemy Imps, the maw on the Manavedes will devour the Imp completely, raising it's happiness. However, should a Manavede be angered, it will try to eat half your Imps if there is more than ten, or it'll take a few bites out of your Dungeon Heart before it is pleased.

Passive Traits
  • Magic Disruption: Every melee attack done against Magic Users causes a short global cooldown for all of the target's magic spells.
  • Mana Eater: Attacking and killing enemy Imps causes the enemy Underlord to lose some mana.
Active Abilities
  • Mana Influx: All the mana gathered within the Manavede is sent outwards like some sort of explosion, sending enemies flying away from the user.
  • Mana Consumption: All mana around the Manavede is sucked towards it, leaving the area void of magic for a few seconds. It prevents minions' and even the Underlord's spells from being casted within that area.

We need a replacement for the warlock, but aside from perhaps a Shaman or generic Sorcerer I'm drawing blanks. Yes its a vaguely common creature in fantasy, but it isn't in the way they used it I shouldn't think.

Well, MeinCookie, warlocks/sorcerers are easily automatically seen as human, and human(-like) mages of any sort are more common, but really, you can give any creature with some level of intelligence the ability to cast spells of some sort. You could make something up just for that purpose. I think ceatures that have a craving for mana or magic-users can be interesting. Evi, what if what created them wasn't a warlock/sorcerer, but some other mysterious, unspecified creature that was wiped out by these Manavedes. Now, lacking that original source of food which temporarily sated their eternal hunger for all that is magic, they resort to just taking a bite out of anything that they sense is 'magical'.

Hm, that would make their backstory more lively than just "Another Warlock creation".

I'll edit it later to that.

Cool idea.

A very Specilised creature could have a level very mutch like the one in DK that the rival keeper has tons of vampires and you need to chapture and gain the monks to fend them off but in this ones case you need to get them to thwart all the rivals mages ect.

Updated this finally with the passive and active stuff. Still trying to figure out some good skills for it.

i like this idea quite a bit, Always liked specialists and mana devouring beasts are an interesting concept and I love the passive bit about eating imps and the underlord looses mana which means players would have to be that bit more vigilant. my favourite warcraft demon was the Felhound who attacked enemy mages but they looked like ugly dogs but a massive insect that bites everything in it's path has the intimidation factor I want in WTFO beasts.
