April Challenge

For those of us in the US, April is not just Spring, but a time of battling mosters (AKA tax forms). This month's challenge: a short story dealing with a 'monstrous' (non-humanoid alien) D&D type creature - (My personal favorites are shapechanging dragons - steel and tungsten are two.)

Choose a creature from Here or Here. Let me know which one and I'll send you the details. (For the Creature Finder, the higher the CR, the more difficult the creature is to handle.)

Maybe a Doppelganger has found its way into the studio, or a rust monster at a Sky-Diver Base, or green slime, or some fool has called Pazuzu... Smiley

Evil Deb, truly evil. Smiley I like that! (Matt thinks about an aquatic monster that would threaten his new submarine. And her new Captain. Cheesy)

It looks like my Soul Mates rewrite might take a back seat. :Smiley

I like the thought of that kind of challenge.  But does the monster necessarily have to be from those places?  I tend to work best with ones I create myself.  (Not that I've created that many, mind you.)  But I don't work well with too many restrictions.  What do you say?

Well, I figured the (almost) master D&D monster list would be a good place to start for non-green-faced alien type monsters.

But if you have one you like better - a Barbie robot? - then that should work.

Barbie robot?   Shocked  Now that's truly terrifying!  Smiley

No, actually I had in mind a certain chimera I had planned a story around once, but never got written.  I think I'll brush up on my monster skills and dive in.  Thanks for the inspiration!  Smiley

A Dr. Who monster would be fun!   Cheesy 
I had to google 'deadites' because I'd never heard of the term before.  Wow!  Zombies and the evil dead!  Gross!  Do it, Yuchtar!!!  Grin
