    This mod replaces the original characters of the game with monsterfied versions-- both portraits and character models.

    Cyclops Penny:
    What she lacks in eyes she makes up for in freckles.


    Werewolf Shane:
    PS: He has a tail and it swishes when he walks :3


    Demon Sebastian:

    He's so angsty cuz he has a broken horn.


    Skeleboy Sam:
    Take him to the bone zone.


    Skelady Jodi:
    You can't hide anything from her.. because she sees through your soul..


    Orc Alex:
    I love his blushing face..


    How to Install:

    - Locate your Stardew Valley folder ( Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common )
    - Go to your Content folder.
    - Locate and backup the original files.
    - Place any .xnb file marked Character into the Character folder and overwrite when prompted.
    - Place any .xnb file marked Portrait into the Portraits folder and overwrite when prompted.
    - Make sure not to mix up the .xnb files!

    If you notice any bugs or pixels out of place, don't be afraid to point them out to me!

      aw, look at werewolf shane! that'd certainly explain his grumpiness.

        I'm gonna have to make a save file just for this mod alone when it's all done lol

          Nothin' wrong with that. I'm also thinking about, once I have a good chunk of them done, working on some accessories, too. That way people can make their own character's a little monster-y to fit in.

          Yeah, I thought it was quite fitting with the scruffy face and the torn up jacket. c:

            Oh my sweet mother of all thank you for demon sebastion!!!!

            Edit: any chance you can make a second sprite for sebastion where he's not smoking? Maybe make it where he's just standing or drinking a soda?

              Considering Abigail's diet she should DEFINITELY be a troll.
              Caroline can be Arachne, Pierre can be a Dragon, and Abigail can be adopted.

                I like werewolf Shane. It actually explains why he doesn't want you to talk to him/befriend him, it's because he is the wolf man!!!

                And Abigail should be a rockbiter.

                  I'm sure at some point I'll go through to make some tiny edits to polish some little details I missed along the way on everyone, so when that time comes I'll see about editing his smoking habit away.

                  The design I have thought out for her as a troll is basically fur tipped ears and a long, fur tipped troll tail. Probably change her skin tone to something more abnormal, too, if I end up going with that design.

                  I'm a fan of the fantheory that Caroline is related to the wizard, however, so I don't think I'll go with Abi being adopted.
                  That and he is just a grumpygrump by nature, heh.

                  A rockbiter is a good suggestion, but I'm already planning to make Clint a rock golem type creature so they'd look too similar.

                    I just had a heart attack and died twice over that spooky skeletal Sam with ghost hair. 10/10

                      This is so creative and good and well made <3
                      I really hope you get to finish at least all the bachelors/bachelore!!!

                        I would say that Abigail would be a dragon

                          He's done now!

                          Thank you so much.
                          I'm really enjoying making these, it just takes a bit of time.. hopefully I will have all the marriables done soon!

                          Gunna start a poll tomorrow on what she should be because I'm so undecided on it. x-x

                            Yeah that would be smart to do. I'm kinda split between dragon and Arachne because both usually consist of purple. BUT sometimes red :T

                              Poll added and previews of what each design would sorta look like.

                                  Voted 'dragon', for a couple of reasons:
                                  1) It and arachne are the looks I like best
                                  2) Pierre's personality feels to me like it would best fit a dragon
                                  3) I have trouble seeing caroline and her mellow personality as a troll

                                  Between these, my brain gave 2 votes for a dragon family, 1 vote for a arachne family, and 0 for troll, so dragon I voted, hopefully my brain will leave me alone now! :p

                                    Thanks, love the feedback and glad you like!

                                    Keep in mind they don't all have to be the same type of monster.
                                    Pierre will either be a troll or a dragon and Caroline an arachne or a dragon. Depends on which designs fit better when I get to them.

                                      I was about to suggest Haley as a Gorgon, when I saw the list at the bottom of the first post, hah!

                                        Yeah, but I have trouble seeing any draconic parent having kids with anything but another dragon, might just be the sub-section of dragon-based fiction I like, but dragons usually are depicted with a biology close enough to things we know existed that if the meteor never happened, dragons might have actually come into existence at some point, thus a dragon having babies with either a arachnid or mammal just doesnt feel right (The rest of the mixed ones already have crazy enough biology that "it can have babies with anything" falls within my ability to suspend disbelief for)

                                          I'm calling it now that Dragon!Abigail is the most popular choice, so that is what she shall be~

                                          I might start releasing them in groups, though, instead of one at a time every day or so..
