I won’t say this idea is an original one, as in Dragon Age you had demons based on negative emotions, but I kinda want to reinvent this system. But my problem is that I can’t really classify the negative emotions that would make good demons, here are a few that I’ve successfully created:
So I tried researching stuff, and sometimes I boil down the list to include only Desire and Fear, with Desire being a neutral entity. Other times I think of adding Guilt to the list, but Guilt isn’t a negative emotion but rather the evolution of conscience, with a little spice of Despair. And I thought of different entities for Lust and Greed, but they’re both parts of Desire.
And now I’m troubled because I can’t decide which of these are positive emotions and which are negative, and which are not emotions but rather the effects of emotions.
