If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Proposal: Cyclopes throw sheep when out of large rocks

Cyclopes have a tendency to spawn with herds of sheep, why not make the most of them? If a cyclops exhausts his arsenal of rocks, he should grab a nearby sheep and hurl it in your general direction.

Since 1. the cyclops needs to be out of rocks, and 2. a sheep needs to be adjacent at that time, this wouldn't happen very often, but it would make Xom very happy when it did.

Monster fling should be a thing. Imagine a vault with an ogre and a bunch of goblins where he chucks them at you over a pit of sharks.

Re: Proposal: Cyclopes throw sheep when out of large rocks

I've thought before of proposing a unique that:
-occupies multiple squares, like a kraken
-has ten thousand hp or so
-heals very very slowly
-eats adjacent monsters to gain their hp
-throws monsters and dungeon features to attack at range or just to clear a 2-space wide path to the player
-is too big to use stairs
-Creates shafts to follow the player to lower levels. The player sees rocks and stones fall from the ceiling before the big thing comes crashing down and pursues.
-Creates shafts on upper floors to pursue the player to higher levels. The player sees shafts and hears noise, then the big thing comes crawling up.
-Can eat the player, sending her to a portal (kind of how banishment works) where she is surrounded by digestors- constricting, acid-melee enemies with no EV, lots of resistance, small hp, and epic AC. Kill one of them to spill out of the stomach of the now dead big thing and into the dungeon.

But cyclops throwing sheep is at least half as much fun.

Will the player be able to befriend the sheep if he attack it in melee with the blowgun?

Polyphemus can literally (1st definition) throw his Yaks at the player. We’re just as amazed as you are.
