    eek Spooookiest GITP Monster Competition yet!

    Updated!

    Fear has won...

    Alright, as most of those on the Homebrew forums know I've been running a monthly monster competition for three years come next month. This October though I plan to do things a little different.

    Going to let those of the forums choose the next category. Make a suggestion, or vote for another, and post both here. You may only officially choose 'one' category.

    Furthermore, as a prize, Serpentine and Djinn_In_Tonic have volunteered to do an OOTSatar and trophy for of the winning entry.

    Note: Votes will be tallied at noon (EST) Sep 30th and the contest begun on October 1st

    If we can combine suggestions, Fear Itself, Gratuitous Gore II and Trick or Treat.

    Actually, I think I have an idea that could pull off all of them...

    The Great Pumpkin, possibly combined with one of the others.

    Great Pumpkin

    then you can add "fear itself" and "trick or treat".

    Then I only need to find my notes of "Root of all Evil" (a game of mine that fell down quickly.) and I can take the BBEG directly. (yes, the root itself is a creature. and quite a nasty one too, with 10 levels of blighter.)

    Or make a brand new one. also a possibility.

    EDIT: Alternatively, if no one minds me suggesting a new idea;

    Devil In Plain Sight - Create an evil monster which somehow hides its dangerous nature from those it interacts with.

    I vote for simply turning up the squick as high as it goes. I guess you could count that as a vote for Gratitious Gore II. Also, anyone who manages to combine multiple suggestions should get bonus points.

    Make a suggestion or vote for another, post both here.
    Just to be contrary (hey, it's a monster contest, right?) I'll go with the first option.

    Suggestion:

    It's alive!
    - All entries should be things that are, but never should have been.

    I agree that combining this with another one of the suggested themes would be swell though.

    I am torn between Fear Itself and The Great Pumpkin. If I have to choose one, I'm going with Fear Itself.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Also suggestable:
    Witch: Must be able to use invocations, vestiges or necromancy.
    I might post up a halloween themed monster statblock not in this contest, because I just can't do internet drawings.
    EDIT: Necromancy, not arcana. Sorry.
