Here some fun

Comment here your suggestions for new fortress foes. And tag @ someone you'd like to comment.

I am part of a large local discord. Some know I'm active here and will ask me to make suggestion and this is a recurring theme.

New Fortress foes.

Of course we would all love to see the

Pius Thicknesse (puppet minister of Magic) -Auror

A giant or mountain troll-Professor oddity

fire crab-Magizoologist

    I’d love to beat up a snatcher, though I imagine that’d be something an auror would be proficient at.

    As a professor, perhaps a pukwudgie would be fun. 😁

    How about you, @Dewin99?

    I'd like to see dragons. REAL dragons at the peak of their strength.

    If I had to implement them, none of the 3 classes would gain a Class-Advantage against them. I'd give them Defence and Defence-Breach (scaling just like Werewolves), a metric ton of Stamina and it hits light a supersonic freight-train.

    I want them to feel like the KING of Magic Creatures - quite a struggle to take down but even more satisfying once you do it.

    Also, I'd like to see

    • Vampires (Auror)
    • Dementors (Auror)
    • Banshee (Auror)
    • Inferi (Professor)
    • Leprechauns (Professor)
    • Centaurs (Professor)
    • Basilisk (Magizoologist)
    • Hippogriff (Magizoologist)
    • Chimera (Magizoologist)

    @Acumen oooh a snatcher great!

    @Lucoire Love the dragon idea!

    Wonderful list.

    And I'd love to battle inferi

    I have a hard time with the centaur, it feels odd to me that they are foes.

    Your list made me remember and look up Grindylows- water demons could be creature or curiosities.

    @ClairabusGryff what would you want to battle?

    @Owlx I think that a group of centaurs, a Dolores Umbrige, a basilisk (elite), a female dark witch (why can’t we have a female in the mix right?), the grindylow, an elite acromantula named Aragog, all 4 of the dragons in the tri-wizard tournament, and a partridge in a pear tree. Also @kiheikid came up with the idea for an obscuris which I think is great. I won’t take credit for it. Maybe the Japanese water dragon too from MB. I would love to hear kiheikid’s ideas too. I will come up with more though for sure.

    @ClairabusGryff LOL I'd love to battle a partridge in pear tree. Work retail our mall Christmas music starts mid November and pkays until at least mid January- Usually on a 2 to 3 hour repeat. We hate that song the most because each hour had a different version.

    I can only imagine @Owlx hearing all that Christmas music on repeat would be awful. I love when Christmas music starts but am always happy when it goes away.

    Yes @Dewin99 all of that please!!

    I am a magizoo and only have 4 Picketts. I adore him but need more.

    And for the dragons from tri-wizard do one as an elite in each of the four fortress levels. That way people can experiment based on their current level and comfort zone in fortress’s.

    To my idea of centaurs why can’t we have a herd of them? Say we hit one and he goes and rejoins the herd and another one comes out and so on. Just like in our current fortress we have the pixies that dodge our casts. The developers could make them all different with wildly differing Achilles heels.

    Here’s another idea: Nargles!

    in a fortress, you’re surprised by the appearance of a friend rather than a foe. They seem a bit off though, casting spells at you indiscriminately. Your job is to clear their head of nargles.

    @Acumen Yes. Just yes!

    Imagine Hermione slashing at you like a pixie, swirling a cast like a death eater, biting at you like a werewolf/vampire/horned viper!

    (maybe not throw like a leprechaun, let’s not go there with the erkling!)

    Y'all are too much! Love it this thread has had me giggling all day

    It must be the nargles!

    So many marvelous ideas

    Whispers...I hope they're listening @hpwulola

    I thought today we need to be able to battle Fenrir Greyback as an elite foe only in both his human form-auror and werewolf form (he'd have on torn tattered clothes - professors

    Also I'd like to see a dementor on the map as a curiosity.

    Recently I've been thinking a lot about the "Proficiency" and "Deficiency" Mechanic and that has given me an idea for a new Fortress Foe:


    • when engaged in a duel, it will ALWAYS morph into an enemy against which the Player is deficient: Acromantula for Aurors, Werewolves for Magizoologists, Death Eater for Professors
    • unlike "other" foes, the boggart has an additional 100% Proficiency Power on top of the difficulty-scaled PP (to ensure that even the Players that finished their Profession-Lessons can "enjoy" their worst nightmare)

    @Lucoire That is simultaneously brilliant and awful!
