    But that requires a desire to harm others. A villan motivated by boredom might just want to stir things up so they aren't bored anymore (for example if they are in power they could pass some akward laws that make everyone hate them but cause no real harm. Like making it manditory to great people with "I'm gunna kill you!" while waving a weapon).

    Also, since it seeing the other votes I'm going to change mine from undead to ooze. I might change it later to plant or abberation though (after all, eldritch horrors are awsome and so can be plant monsters).

    That is malice. Wanting to cause a disturbance to others. The apathetic part is the boredom.

    But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

    I've checkedthe changed votes and tallied them. In the future, please bold your vote... makes it go quicker. Thanks!

    Plant-partially beacuse that's where the votes are going, partially beacuse the idea of a photosynthetic villain is awesome.

    I am going to vote Plant, because I want to see a villain with roots.
    Insomniac posting is a STUPID idea. I should probably stop.

    Halflings are my favorite race. Belkar is an exception.

    Some people call me a frickin' creepy stalker, others are not so observant.
