Post Wazzat? Mystery Critters in C&C Art
Hey,

So, perusing the PHB and M&T as I am wont to do, I noticed that some critters pictured are not actually statted up or given names in M&T. For instance, on pg. 124 of the PHB 2nd printing, there's the large, multi-eyed, tentacled, maggot-like mucous-mouthed critter. Also, what're the horned, well-dressed and equipped blue/green-skinned giant-folk depicted on the cover of M&T?

I've got ideas about them and an itch to stat them up (the former, for example, I imagine is a critter known to prey on trolls, possessed of potent acidic mucous, and the ability to spit globs of it), but I was wondering if they were things already described elsewhere (such as in Erde).

cheers!

Colin

I thought the M&T cover was Ogre Magi.

The creatures on the M&T cover are the Troll Lords.

I considered that, but it didn't quite fit the Ogre Mage description, of possessing only a single horn protruding above the brow ridge, and of using exotic arms and armour It probably is supposed to be a trio of Ogre Magi, but doesn't quite fit the main description.

cheers!

Yeah, the cover critters are an homage to Steve, Davis, and I think Todd.

Indeed... stats? name? Story behind such a critter?

I don't know what it is. It just looked cool for a visual element in the picture. ^_~`
