Investigator and... ninja-guy! Sweet!

I don't recognize the others, but they look nice. ^_^ BUT INVESTIGATOR!


Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but, technically, Reiko is a ninja-girl. :ph34r:

It's been mentioned.


I'm amused that y'all fell for his disguise that easily.


Damn sneaky ninja.


is it an ice devil?

...animal? :huh:


What do they talk? I've never actually run into one in a game. They just sort of look like critters.

I wrote out the opening to the Story for the maps. 

This story Ends at precisely the moment the first KS map begins.


It's awful, being that I am not a great writer, but I had fun and I hope you do too.




It had been a long night. As the sun began to rise to the east, across the Forlorn Mountains at the edge of the world, Mrs. Bones locked the front door to the manor and hung her golden sword over the mantle. Mr. Bones propped his scythe against the wall and kicked off his boots. The graveyard was silent now, and the ferry service was closed for the day. After sunset the spirits would need to be quieted again and Mrs. Bones would go on patrol, and Mr. Bones would go to work for Mr. Charon but for now, they could rest in each other’s arms.


Mr. Bones pulled the curtain closed just as the first rays of the morning sun hit the opposite wall, and he crawled into bed beside his beloved Ulna. Dim, warm light from the gaps in the drapes filled the room as they drifted off to sleep, cold beneath their scarlet covers. The lights in their eyes dimmed, and the only sounds to be heard were the occasional rattle of their gentle breathing. Hours passed.


A dark shadow passed over the bed, blotting out all light. A great din erupted as the great window shattered, the glass ripping the heavy scarlet damask curtains into tatters. Shards of glass and crimson cloth filled the air and the shadow covered the bed in darkness that was palpable, not just blocking the light but absorbing it. Ulna jumped up, searching the chaos to find her husband, but she could see nothing in the blackness, feeling only the glass against her cheekbones and something soft drifting through the air.


The shadow receded and as light returned Ulna tried to make sense of the scene. Glass was everywhere, mixed with bright red streaks, and tufts of fluff floated through the air. The sun bathed the room in intense hot light, overwhelming her. The bed was ripped asunder. Giant rends streaked through the black-swan-down filled mattress, black streaks through rivers of crimson.


What she could not see was her dear Vomer. Her eyes flared red as she reached into her bed stand to grab a strength potion. Taking a quick second to grab her cloak to protect her from the hateful sun and a small pack, she ran down the hall to follow the trail of the thing that stole her husband. She knew she’d need her weapons, so she couldn’t leap foolishly out the window after them. She ran down the hall, emerging into a disused chamber with empty bookshelves and discarded bones - they’d always wanted to make a child, but their careers kept them both pretty busy.


An armored warrior burst through the doorway, brandishing a laughably small knife. For over two centuries Ulna had patrolled the cemetery at World’s Edge, this human warrior was no match. Ulna stopped, adjusted her cloak, and waved the soldier on. He paused briefly, not expecting his target to be so calm, but seeing she was unarmed, he grew emboldened. He lunged towards her, thrusting his dagger towards her grinning face. She extended her left leg, sweeping his ankle out from under him. As he hit the ground, she dropped, planting her knee across the back of his neck. She reached out and twisted the knife from his hand, flipped it across her palm, and thrust it into his back.


He did not scream or twitch. His head twisted around, and as he spoke his lips and eyes turned black. “You’ll never defeat us all. You will fall before us, and your power will be ours. Vomer Bones is already lost. You have already lost.†The words dissolved into unintelligible burbles and bubbles as the soldier dissolved into a gooey pool of black. That was no human, but whatever it was was the same dark shadow-stuff that had invaded their room and stolen her husband.


Standing, Mrs. Bones held the new dagger before her, straightened her shirt, and blew her bangs out of her eyes. The soldier could not have been more wrong. She would not lose...





























We got jumped and lost a life! At least Bonehenge gave us a diamond.







Mrs. Bones got all ogre smash and started kicking corpses all over the place!




New map! Outdoors & line of sight. Looks like we get an extra life at 1 million plus a helmet instead of a hat.




... and outside!




More townsfolk!




More weapons!





I missed one update yesterday, so here's that image, now at the townsfolk:





And newest one. We've used a red potion, but have picked up a blue one. We can now see a dancing owl, a fountain, a horned beaver (?), and a ninja.

Ice Devils speak infernal. Also I believe there was an ice devil in Bones II?


There was.


Of course, there was a minotaur too, so you never know.


Still not an animal though.


I suggest that you each just pledge an extra $20. That might be enough to get Bryan to announce the answer, plus you will already have enough money in your pledge to buy one! :upside:


(or possibly two, who knows?)




Y'know, the critter at the top of the garden looks vaguely like an owlbear. That would be large sized, originate in MM1, and have multiple textures. (feathers and fur) I'm not sure if they're omnivorous, and I don't know where an insect connection would come from though.


For the little guy with horns below that, I'm going with Viking Platypus. ::D:

Someone else I think mentioned it upthread, but my guess is a Dire Bat.


They love insects, but also eat fruit, and drink blood.  They have both leathery wings and fur.  It's a large animal.  I am pretty sure I remember hearing about one back in the earlier KSers.
