    I shall second the vote for Giant. You don't see giant's used well as important adversaries. They're usually a mid-level antagonist, used once or twice, & then discarded for the rest of the campaign. I'd like to see a more formidable giant villain, rather than another XP-kleenex.

    I'm voting for Giant as well as I've seen plenty of dragons and fey recently.

    The fey were, admittedly, partially my fault. See prior thread.

    Begone, foul heretic! Begone!

    I wouldn't mind Giant, either, but so far, I've seen more competent giants than Oozes, which is why for Ooze my vote shall remain.

    Giant, it seems appropriate, and should be a bit different than most of the villians/creatures made in these contests.

    Aberrant villain for me. I just think of Cthulu, and the sinister mind flayers breeding thrall slaves and dominating a small town.

    Fire Giants seems to me to be the most overtly villainous of the giant varieties, as well as one of the more cunning & "with-it".
