    Default If you were turned into a monster, what monster whould you like to be turned intro?

    If you were turned into a monster, what monster would you like to be turned into?

    Or at least you wouldn’t mind so much.

    I have been playing a lot of crawl with my friends and that is making me think about if I was turned into a monster which one would be the best.

    Any monster from fantasy, D&D or mythological creature is available.

    My first choice is the Omnipotent God-Monster. Which is an omnipotent monster that is also God, from my own personal fantasy. But he is also real because I believe in an omnipotent God who can do anything including calling himself the Omnipotent God-Monster.

    My second choice would probably be any perfect shapeshifter, like a Phasm from D&D.

    Probably a leprechaun or dwarf, being small and invisible keeps you from being shot, people give you food for trinkets, and you can wreck houses if their offerings are bad.
    Now if everyone could please "Sig" something along the lines of "Gosh 2D8HP, you are so very correct (and also good looking)", I think that would be good progress.

    Probably something "tauric." I honestly think they look awesome. If I could pick it would be lammasu/aasimar. Awesome looking paragon of goodness a gogo! Incomprehensible entity from beyond the stars is a close second.

    Yeah, I think everyone starts wanting to be God at some point

    My personal choice, however, would be a lich! Sure, I'd have to be dead, but I'd also be a wizard. I would create a magical fortress (a sturdy but elegant castle of blue-gray stone, clinging to the side of my favourite mountain) in which my friends and I could play D&D for hours on end. Then I would subtly extend my magical influence over my entire hometown and the surrounding area, slightly altering reality in various ways for the sake of silly and moderately cruel pranks.

    Spoiler: Further details
    Show
    The castle gardens would be encircled by a labyrinth of towering spruce trees, casting deep, cool shadows in which I could wander for hours. The garden itself would be an open green space carpeted in pink and white clover, with some white violets scattered around as well. It would be crisscrossed with raised stone beds that, when viewed from the sky, would form spare, swoopy-lined pictures of sea serpents, horses, and various birds. These would not be flowerbeds, though obviously the plants would flower on occasion; instead, I would fill them with bergamot, oregano, rosemary, and mint (because I like snacking on those, yes I know it's weird). Small amounts of chickweed, vetch, and yarrow would be allowed to grow unchecked at the edges of the beds. Thimbleberry and swamp currant bushes would be scattered at whimsically random intervals.

    The castle library would be larger than the castle itself, because presumably liches can access other dimensions. There would be a rolltop desk at which to read and write, as well as a wall of "pigeonholes" containing various stationery supplies e.g. many inkwells of India ink (various colours), parchments and quills, fine brushes, paints, and dyes. There would also be pretty much every modern office supply you can think of. And mechanical pencils. The bookshelves would be stocked with every book I have ever wanted, primarily reference materials on my various geeky interests (there would be a separate library for stories, which would be fully equipped with a coffee maker and squashy armchair).

    The game room would contain a ridiculously long table, a snack bar, and lots of rulebooks. MTG cards would abound. Dice would also abound, and they would all come in matched sets. There would be many, many unpainted miniatures and plenty of small tubes of paint.

    The rest of the castle could be set up however it wanted, provided there was an observatory somewhere.

    Am I still in the 'real world' or am I in a standard D&D type setting?

    If it is the real world it would have to be some sort of shapechanger just so I could keep functioning in society! A doppelganger could be a lot of fun.

    A D&D world on the other hand has a lot more options. I'd probably go for a metallic dragon so I could have the awesomeness of dragonhood without being evil and thus a magnet for adventurers!

    I think I would be a Nymph; I would be able to retain my human shape, have magical powers, be super-hot and have tons of sex without damning anyone's soul to the lakes of hell as a succubus.

    Why be a god if you can f*** one?

    It's kind of funny now that I think about how most female demons and monsters are humanoid and hot while the male ones are ugly and deformed.

    A D&D-style metallic dragon. Immense power, magic, and shapeshifting. Also because dragons are awesome.

    I think I'd go with being a nine tailed Kitsune. Immortality, Magic powers which include Shapeshifting, Personal Hammerspace? It's like being a D&D Dragon but getting to take your hoard with you.

    A mimic. I'd like to be a mimic. That'd be fun, just scaring people when I transform out of being a bar counter or something silly like that.

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    I started my first campaign outside of an abandoned mine, just as soon as a meteor storm from the moon hits.

    What defines a monster? Are we talking fantasy nonhumans, or bestial creatures, or something evil?

    Eh, if I had my druthers, I'd probably go with a Bronze Dragon from DnD. Aquatic, flight, shapechanging, animal speech, miscellaneous other cool magic power, and I could pass on some cool stuff to my children. Pretty much everything I would want, with few to no downsides.

    Is a time lord a monster? Immortality, psychic powers, regeneration, time sense, the ability to psychically manipulate probabilities and timelines to save your own ass by improbable luck...

    Otherwise, really, anything with magic. I wouldn't say know to any kind of fae, lich, wizard, dragon...

    First thing that came to my mind is "dragon" - flying, being so beyond the ken of most mortal creatures that pretty much nothing bothers me, getting to hang out in remote lairs alone with my hoard... Probably a silver (living in mountains sounds great and "red" doesn't fit my style at all), or maybe amethyst so I don't have to be so Lawful Good. Or, if I'd rather be more down-to-earth, a doppelganger would be a great choice - not only because I love the lil' buggers (shapeshifters are a must in any good campaign IMO), but also because that sort of shapeshifting fits my profile a lot, getting to be anyone at any moment.

    But if I'm going to be realistic, both of those sound like too big of a hassle to me. Having to hunt, survey my territory, assert my authority on any uppity creatures therein, and fend off adventurers? Ugh. Having to constantly come up with new identities and go through all the trouble of adapting to them, always looking over my shoulder? Double ugh. No, the monster that really fits me is a treant. All I need to do is be in the woods (which I like) and catch some sun and soil nutrients. If anyone finds me, most of the time the only thing I'm supposed to do is speak with the wisdom of centuries (and we all know any random BS does the trick).

    D&D succubus, preferably one that's not Chaotic Stupid. Fairly mobile, charisma like mad, shapechange, have some defensive abilities in case some paladin decides to go smite happy. Charm for days.

    after some thought......

    I guess my answer would be:

    Demon.
    Why? long life/immortality, magic, do whatever I want, all the succubus lesbians I could want, read forbidden lore, probably have an awesome looking citadel, lots of fiery pits for good reading light, still be humanoid and look awesome, the only problem is the morality thing, but I'm pretty sure I can fix that through lots of demonic shenanigans. Its not as if its any worse than the people who say succubus or incubus themselves.

    Well... it's pretty popular already, but... Dragon. A silver dragon in particular (because the frilly gold dragon looks dumb imo). Silver dragons still have change shape too. Add in fire immunity too so hot climates aren't a problem.

    A Maharaja, Rakshasa its from one of the pathfinder monster manuals. A CR 20 variant of the original. Its not only incredibly powerful physically it casts spells as a 18th level sorcerer.
    Nale is no more, he has ceased to be, his hit points have dropped to negative ten, all he was is now dust in the wind, he is not Daniel Jackson dead, he is not Kenny dead, he is final dead, he will not pass through death's revolving door, his fate will not be undone because the executives renewed his show for another season. His time had run out, his string of fate has been cut, the blood on the knife has been wiped. He is an Ex-Nale! Now can we please resume watching the Order save the world.
