    Exclamation The Dozen Dungeon Challenge!

    My creativity has been in the sewers of late and my tank of inspiration going on empty.

    So, though I'm probably going to regret this, I'm going to take the next 12 monster suggestions folks give me and have them completely done by this time tomorrow if possible.

    Maybe it'll give me a jumpstart... or a breakdown. Either way, won't have to worry about it any more.

    Please keep the suggestions original and doable.

    And.... GO!

    -=-=-=-=-=-

    I'll be posting my works in the Homebrew forums, and will post links below.

    #1. Dire Duck-Billed Platypus
    #2. Symbiotic Mind, Inspirator
    #3. Animated Object Swarm
    #4. Mole from the Deep
    #5. Claws on the Wall
    #6. Dying Breath
    #7. Sentient mushrooms as a PC-playable race
    #8. Carnivortex
    #9. Fleshwrapper
    #10. Blink
    #11. Dungeon Fungus
    #12.

    Dungeon Fungus: a mold that digs out dungeons... and adds traps, locked doors, and so on.
    Of course, by the time I finish this post, it will already be obsolete. C'est la vie.

    Errrr... thats bordering plausibility but we'll see what comes to mind.


    Note: Just because Dungeon is in the title, none of the suggestions need be limited to literal dungeon-type terrain. Can by any kind of concept.

    Symbiotic Mind:
    An ethereal ghost-like creature that bonds with a "host". It lives off his mental stats (penalty to Int, Wis, and/or Cha); in exchange, it provides limited psionic and incarnum powers.
    PCs: Horacio, Gorby, Helionaluxis

    Clockwork Ooze.

    Interpret it as you will, but some possibilities are thousands/millions of minuscule gears that end up with a near-ooze appearance with how they flow and roll. Likely has some sort of combustion engine to turn living matter into fuel. Great for a Mechanus encounter or mad genius's workshop.

    Whoops, you wanted to homebrew monsters, not take down other peoples' homebrews.

    In that case...

    Don't think so...

    The soul feeder -- a creature that seeks the newly dead to feed on their escaping souls.
    Souleater - Magic of Incarnum, p. 194.

    Sounds like Belboz's Grey Goo.

    A living dungeon made entirely of Colossal++ Animated Objects.
    Thats not exactly 'an object'.

    Dungam: A collosal+ humanoid Construct with lots of magical goodies that can be ridden and controlled by a 'pilot' of sorts.
    Sounds like a Flesh Colossus from the Epic Level Handbook.


    And btw folks, note the 'original' clause up there. Adding published templates to published creatures are 'not' original.

    Yeah, something like that, or a were-salmon or something.

    But yeah, a Pit Fiend with the Salmon template, imagine the jump check!

    Claws On The Wall - An oversized tiger... Er, a monstrous snarling feline beast large enough to have 10' reach that prefers to attack its prey on vertical cliff faces or even from roomy dungeon ceilings.

    Higgins: An old man, who's top half looks like the guy from Ask.com/the monopoly man, and who's bottom half is a woman legs in fish net stockings (has been considered to look similar to the NPC Haskil from the Oblivion expansion, Shivering Isles). All he ever says is his name, he is unique and cannot die. EVER! When you reduce him to -10 HP he just goes unconcious and comes around in 1 round.

    This isn't actually my idea, Wraith came up with it one very random night. Friggin' hilarious when he first came up with it.

    Fog of Visions.

    Fog of Visions is a creature that feeds of anything consumable that enters it's body. When you enter the Fog of Visions you start to have visions of being a participant of long gone battles and epic duels.

    All yours. Including the name.
