Edit edit edit: We’ve basically lost everything in the house, except the pets, pictures, computers, and guns. Hard core considering relocating because of this.
Edit edit: house is now taking on water. Hoping the worst of the rain is over. I will be cleaning the rest of the week after there’s electricity and work won’t have me there since I’ll need to deal with this. What is damp may never dry.
Edit, made post on phone, so apologies for the typo on the date. And I’m officially without power. Good luck, everyone.
How's everyone holding up? Anyone else going to be in insomnia mode tonight?**
I'm back! Throughout this miniseries of horror monsters, I've been trying to cover a lot of different bases (ignoring the fact that like a third of them are just body horror), and this monster pays homage to one of the most distinct horror styles out there. I hope you all enjoy, and as usual you are free to use this monster and tweak/edit it in any way you need, just as long as you tell me how it goes! Questions and comments are encouraged, and I'll do everything I can to answer them.
Thanks to TigerT20 and Sly from the discord.

Far from any major cities or other settlements, there is a town where it’s always raining. Sometimes the rain is heavy, other times it’s little more than a drizzle, but it never stops altogether. The inhabitants of the town have learned to live with it, often finding themselves performing actions in time with the drip-drip-drip of rainwater off of the roof. Some even grow uncomfortable when venturing away into dryer lands, restless without the calming grey sky and washed air. Of course, there are plenty of perfectly reasonable explanations for the constant rain. The town is located in a humid climate between mountains, perfect for catching clouds and condensing them down into liquids, and there are multiple old conflicting tales of water deities blessing the lands. But neither of those explain the rarer whispers. Whispers of gaps in the deluge where the raindrops bounce off of thin air. Whispers of something moving in the sky, only silhouetted for a split second against the occasional flash of lightning. Whispers that the townsfolk themselves never, ever mention, staring with vacant eyes and cold, clammy skin at the visitors who suggest such things.
Aside from its regional effects, the Monsoon Presence is a being that prefers to remain subtle and unseen. It renders as much of itself invisible as it can at any given time, but the size and complexity of its body means that glimpses of its form can still be caught occasionally. No discernible head or face, great wings of membrane, dozens of pulsating starfish-like limbs slowly curling through the air, and a single cavernous opening at the center of it all emitting a low drone that can be heard deep, deep inside the brain. The otherworldly rain spirit may use its tentacles to drag victims up into the wet storm if cornered, but its primary method... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just did my first ever Monsoon run! I played as Captain and I got all the way to Mithrix and unfortunately died on his third stage. Just wanted to share bc I was proud of myself.
I've tried so many character + item combinations, and I can never legitimately get past stage 8 without artifacts. I've heard of so many people getting past stage 20 or 50, I don't get it. It always feels like you make a single mistake in the later levels and it results in death (esp. versus elites, so much damage).
Are people that get super late in RoR2 just breaking the game by taking extremely cheesy items or something?
