Continuing our look at the MM2 Archons entry we arrive at Storm Archons.
Last month I focused on the lost chromatics: brown, purple, grey, orange, pink, and yellow dragons. Today I am going to look at the metallics. You will already know about brass, copper, bronze, silver, and gold – but there are others!
Wyverns are the little cousins of dragons. Their general physiology is similar to the dragon albeit with a few noticeable differences.
Ankhegs appear in AD&D 1st Edition, and they would go on to achieve minor fame among players because of their lore.
Zombies are one of the most iconic monstrous creatures not only in D&D and fantasy.
“Ant, Giant” is the actual title for the entry. Now that’s some old-school naming! Giant ants have been part of the game since the beginning, so this style feels appropriate.
The 5th edition Monster Manual has ten true dragons: five chromatics and five metallic. True dragons become more powerful as they get older. There are also ‘lesser dragons’, like faerie dragons, pseudodragons, and wyverns, but that’s a whole other topic.
Summoned from another plane, these creatures will complete a job you give them, but that doesn’t mean you should expect them to be happy about it.
The first time I see the name “Worg” is in the AD&D 1st Edition Monster Manual, where it was synonymous with “dire wolf”.
Unlike a normal monster that might be satisfied with killing a character, oozes are motivated by the undiscriminating desire to consume everything in their path!
