    Other Ghosts that could be used.

    With a recent comment that was made about how so many of the iconic ghosts are locked in as kickstarter exclusives, I thought perhaps we could brainstorm any other ghosts that featured either in the movies, video game or the cartoon series that Cryptozoic could pull from to make an awesome expansion

    I have always had a soft spot for Murray the Mantis (expansion pack boss with a battle against Stay Puft? )

    Also there are Stay Pufts Mallow-spawn from the Video Game. (including the way they explode and slime everyone around then when they "pop" when you hit them)

    Would be ridiculously hokey, but they could easily release a Ghostbuster themed expansion after the animated version with Kasey the gorilla, and all the accompanying ghosts...

    There is also the Paper Constructs from the Library in the Video game - which could use a dash ability
    and the Book Golem

    both of which would work brilliantly with the library tile set already created.

    For the Segwick tiles already created there could be
    Bellhop Ghosts Attachment 4095
    Cabdelabrums Attachment 4096
    Kitchen Golem (like book golem but pots and pans)
    Pappy Sargassi (who could also work well with a docks tileset Attachment 4097
    Chef Sargossa http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Chef_Ghost
    Cook Ghost http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Cook_Ghost
    (Heck, we have enough here to have a restaurant tile set???)
    Don't forget Sloth Ghost too http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Sloth_Ghost

    Could also have a docks/industrial tileset with Pappy (as mentioned above) and
    Construction worker ghost http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/C...n_Worker_Ghost
    Hobo Ghost http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Hobo_Ghost
    There is also the Titanic Ghosts from GBII Attachment 4098

    All the (videogame) Sedgewick Ghosts would make for a great campaign.

    A ghost that could offer interesting rules interactions with other ghosts could be Ghash, who "eats" other ghosts to become stronger. He could have his own tracker to track how powerful he gets and show which abilities he gains as he gets stronger.

    Another idea is to look through urban legends and classic "ghosty" horror movies for inspiration for some original ghosts to salt in with the ones from the cartoon and movies. For example:
    -Thin Man
    -Freddy Krueger (lightened up and given mechanics similar to Sandman, perhaps?)
    -The Jersey Devil
    -Sasquatch/Bigfoot/Yeti

    Note: I didn't watch the show much as a kid. I'm sure they covered a lot of classic "ghost/horror themes" but I don't know what they were.

    Another idea along the same theme would be to have a set of ghosts loosely based upon "The Shining." These could follow similar mechanics to the Galloping Ghouls, Gruesome Twosome, Boogaloo Manifestation progression
    -Class 1: The ghost from The Ring. Two combine to form:
    -Class 2: The twins from the shining. Two combine to form:
    -Class 3: A Topiary ghost? A Boogaloo Manifestation? Something else? My idea breaks down here.

    Another idea: The three little pigs
    -Class 1: Pig ghost. Either a normal looking pig or an anthropomorphic pig-child. Two combine to form:
    -Class 2: Double pig ghost. If normal pigs, just stand one on top of the other. If anthropomorphic, have them holding hands. Combines with a third pig to form:
    -Class 3: The Big Bad Wolf. Essentially this allows them to bring a werewolf ghost in. Could also be replaced with the Kickstarter Excluses Werechicken Ghost that follows the same mechanics as the base Big Bad Wolf.
    --If a double pig lands in the same space as another double pig, they go through. Only the three little pigs combine to form the Big Bad Wolf.

    How about Houdini's Ghost from The Real Ghostbusters? Now this guy was a pain in the butt to trap. The first time they caught him he escaped the ghost trap in a matter of seconds.They trapped him in a ghost trap again but this time Venkman wrapped a chain around the ghost trap to keep it shut, but once again Houdini's Ghost escaped the ghost trap a second time. They Trapped him a third time this time wrapping the ghost trap with chains and dropping it in a container of quick drying cement. (this seemed to hold him until it was accidentally broken in half allowing Houdini's ghost to once again escape. At first the Ghostbusters Don't even Know it's Houdini's Ghost. until he keeps escaping. Then they figure it out. Houdini is not an evil ghost in this episode he is just misunderstood at first.
