So this last April, I was taking a spring break trip to DC and I looked up and what did I see? It was awesome, I took a picture of it, but lost it (or a government coverup snuck into my camera and deleted it... I've seen TV, they can do that... )

Anyway...



I found this one online, its not as cool as what I had taken, the color is off and the little nose looks weird, but imagine standing under this and looking up and seeing it decend towards you.

I can image that it is the last sight that many a creature has seen. Scary...



So, you know I have to end this post in the traditional way...

What is That!

Three posts? Really?

Come on people, what do I have to do to get you into the game? Let's see some excitement!

Anyway, I would've thought it looked more like this...

Seriously, looks like the Tako. Sorry mate.

I am stoked to see it. Most importantly, of all the original 5 I am more excited to see the new lava elf 5th than any other. But, that icon maybe could us a revamp. Something simpler. Maybe just a face. The Tako was perfect in fact.

However, I am very stoked to see that things icon distro's. That ID to me does what it does regardless of print.

Also, for Zons, I am thinking another group monster would be fun.

You know it!

All magic, All the time!

Normal icons always double.
ID's triple!
Cantrips quadruple!!!!!!!



























I'm kidding BTW.

I'd appreciate no references to anything pertaining to a certain company, that shall remain nameless, possibly headquartered in the Pacific Northwest.

Thank You. Laughing

Lurker in the Deep? Its... different from what I would have expected... but actually pretty cool! Thematically, it seems to break away from the rest of the Lava Elves, as it looks like it should live underwater. And yet, if I picture this beast moving (flying?) around in the the Lava Elf caves its actually pretty great.
It also makes you wonder what SAIs this monster will have. I would have thought the Lurker in the Deep would be focussed around sneaky stuff, but the icon seems to suggest that the monster wouldn't mind snacking on a few unsuspecting victims either. Any way, I'm pretty excited now.

edit: or maybe it's just the Leviathan and Cliff is just trying to trick us all with a deceptively coloured image. It doesn't really fit with the new Coral Elf art though. Then again, in a strict sense the icon doesn't fit with the new Lava Elf art either.


Oh, and it looks a bit like the FSM.

The idea of the monster is that it doesn't have a traditional face.

I dont feel that I will be surprised. Which, if its the way I see it going, I am surely going to find good use for it.

I see it being something like a genie myself. Which, regardless of what some might say, works very well if you use it right. I will say, I never did find use for the Beholder. But that has a lot to do with that die not having the proper SAI's. Still, we will see.
