Sorry for the delay with this. I’ve been pretty busy the past few evenings (ironically part of that business being DnD related) and also, I got muddled up with the days, and was kind stuck on the next question, forgetting about this one.
But yes, favourite beast. Wolves! C’mon! Wolves are awesome! Do I really need to say more? Though the only reason I’m not saying Winter Wolf (i.e. large wolf with ice powers) is because alas they are classed as a monster rather than animal!
"I thwink we nweed two cwack thwese opwen fiwst!" excalimed Stacey as a squad of heavy robots opened fire on the group.
"Of course you weren't. You're a brainless imbecile who can't see my genius, just like the rest of them!" ranted Eggman. His eyes moved over to Ziona. "What's this? ANOTHER boyfriend? What's the matter, grown tired of hedgehogs?"
Sometimes, you just want to send a Dalek against your players.
An insane, evil genius, convinced it is superior to all others, compelled to destroy or dominate all those it sees as inferior, armed to the teeth with long range energy blasts.
Step (or rather float) forward the Beholder. A large, floating head with a single eye in the center, and several eyestalks. Each of these eyestalks, as well as allowing the Beholder to see, can fire a different type of blast, from a fear ray, to turning living flesh to stone, to outright disintegration. And the main eye, on top of that, can shut down all magic in a wide area. And to that it can fly, and half the challenge is just reaching it, when you have no magic to help you.
While I have never faced, or used, a Beholder, I certainly hope to someday. They are an iconic part of DnD.
"Yweah you dwid!" insisted Stacey as he ran after Sarah into the cells
"Sir, we have restored camera function," Orbot reported.
"Finally, let's see what.... WHAT ARE THEY DOING IN THE CELL BLOCK?" yelled Eggman angrily as he spotted the kids breaking in. Any reply was drowned out by the sound of the control room door being sliced apart and falling to the floor.
