The addition of fossils in Minecraft was a very interesting one, and I recently had a thought: Where did these fossils come from? Perhaps these fossils are from giant monsters from long ago, and they could still be lurking around in the overworld's darkest corners. These mobs could be added into the game as mini-bosses, and would spawn in large structures around the world. Killing one of these mini-bosses could drop new items, which could possibly be used to craft new weapons in the smithing table or fletching table. You would also have the chance to rescue an Adventurer from the monster's dwelling. This Adventurer would be like the Wandering Trader, as it would resemble a villager, but not live in a village or have its own respective table. This villager could sell new weapons that cannot be crafted, and sell a new type of map that would lead you to another monster to slay.
