  • Could this work as a Slasher?

    I thought up a interesting Slasher for use in a potential Hunter game. The basic gimmick is that he is a Maniac-type of slasher who bases his crimes off of fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel and Red Riding Hood. He is also being follwed around by a invisible- wolf-like creature he calls " The Big Bad Wolf". Even worse is the fact that the Wolf seems to be the main reason he is killing due to the fact that it is egging him on. Could this concept work as a Slasher and what should the Big Bad Wolf be?

    Sounds like it could work. As for BB... Inferno Demon? Angel pushing him toward an Occult Matrix? Spirit of Murder (possibly combined with an actual Wolf Spirit making it a Magath)? Fae (True, Hobgoblin, or Mad Changeling)? Abyssal thing?

      Would a wolf/murder spirit even be a Magath?

        Not necessarily. And of course a murder spirit could just look like a wolf without being a wolf-spirit.

        The Dreadwolf, one of the Architect of Violence's champion Maeltinet is an anger/murder spirit that is very clearly a wolf.

          Alternatively, he's just imagining the wolf and he's mentally unstable.

            I might go with either the wolf being imaginary or the wolf being a murder spirit. I wonder what murders based off of fairy tales would look like?

              Well the descriptions of a lot of fairy tale deaths are pretty damn graphic. Snow White's evil queen being forced to dance to her death in red-hot iron shoes, Bluebeard's back room full of wives, Hansel and Gretel's burned witch, shit's gonna get real graphic real fast. Of course, for the first kill it would undoubtedly be an old lady, eaten by a wolf, who is then cut in half with a wood axe.

                Oh, I can't believe I forgot - a Goetia of Fairy-Tales.

                  Do you have Antagonists? There's a critter in that called a Beast of Bethlehem that works pretty well for this (it even has a plot hook along similar lines). It's basically a wolf-like embodiment of "bad vibes."

                    I have this weird image in my head of Sleeping Beauty crossed with the Sloth murder from SE7EN and Rapunzel crossed with Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado".

                    That and Goldilocks being eaten by bears.

                      I'm reminded of the "Sixpence Killer", quoted on the back cover of Slashers.

                      Also, I seem to recall some rather disturbing toys made by Todd McFarland, based on nursery rhymes and fairy tales, including Peter Pumpkin-eater having dismembered his wife in order to fit her inside that pumpkin shell...

                      I find Nick Spencer and Richard Spencer to be equally repulsive.
