    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ROUND #267 - D&D Variants Round 1/3

    Dungeons & Dragons is home to a myriad of monsters pulled from myth and folklore and a few of it’s own creation. Flipping through volume upon volume of monsters for players to confront there are always a few that stick out. Monsters we consider “classics” in the context of D&D. Last summer we did a series of rounds all focused on the central theme of familiars. This year we’re going to be taking classic monsters of the D&D universe, and giving them a little twist. Again, there will be three rounds, three D&D monsters and three twists given to them.


    topic:

    Celestial Beholder


    The beholder is about as classic as it gets in D&D. A floating eye with an anti-magic field and twelve additional eyes to blast you every manner of beam or ray attack it can dream up. The beholder has always been one of those go-to creatures for pure unbridled evil in an easily recognized package. This week we’re going to turn around that whole “evil” thing; in the world of Dungeons & Dragons, celestial beings functions as purveyors of benevolence and angelic principles. You job this week is create a creature which is recognizable as both a beholder, and a celestial being.

    Wiki info:
    Beholder: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beholder
    Celestial: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celesti...s_%26_Dragons)

    Requirements this week:
    - Your creature must have a main central eye and upwards of six secondary eyes.
    - Your creature should show some tendency towards the angelic/celestial in its design.
    - Your creature should be recognizable as the D&D monster: the beholder.


    Deadline:

    August 1st, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    That's going to be very interesting!

    Universal reason isn't always fair but it has an amazing sense of humour.

    cool. I can join after long time again. But I am not sure if I understand the topic right. So this eyeball creature should be celestial in meaning as good as an angel or something? or it can just be bad but visually related to celestial style? thanks
