I am looking at introducing a custom creature to the barn, a Wendigo, but I want to be respectful to the people the folklore belongs to. I understand if the conclusion is to not make it at all but I would like to get input on the topic either way. I have read what I've found available on the topic by native people but as this game is a 'create your own character' and very far from what I've been able to find info for it's hard to determine if this is something that would be ok. I don't plan on having the Wendigo be killable so there will be no white people/Christians 'cleansing' it which i would definitely not want but the story does not include any Algonquian characters that we know of (though this may be the farmer themselves or a character mod/headcannon but can not be confirmed). I want to make sure I'm going about this in a respectful way so any help would be very appreciated! I won't bother explaining a Windego since that's obviously not mine to explain here, I'll just go into the mod choices and why I picked them: As for the mod, I was thinking that in order to keep with what I understand are the core beliefs behind the Wendigo I would have it drop gold (or another 'valuable' item) that represents greed and then at a higher heart level it would begin dropping meat (or a strange bun if i can not manage to make the meat work but I have my fingers crossed) for the Wendigo's attempts to draw the farmer into cannibalism / make them into a Wendigo. I have no intention of portraying it as a good or neutral monster, this is an evil creature so I want to show that with the unsettling drops as well as I can for the restrictions given the type of game this is, that said feel free to offer alternative drop ideas (please understand adding entirely new drop items may be un-doable with my current knowledge). Of course, thank you to anyone who offers their time to answer this. I will be sure to thank any person for their input with a shout out and link on the mod page (if it is created)!
