Sup /tg/
I'm planning a dungeon for my game, but I want the majority of the encounters to be creatures that wizards created- and I can only think of two right now, the Gelatinous Cube and Mimics. So, monster thread, and extra points for monsters that are created, constructs and the like.

>HARD MODE: Creatures created specifically to manage/clean/keep dungeons.

>> No.31225090

Skeletons and zombies, but in maid outfits and butler suits, complete with phrasebooks and signposts to communicate to actual humans.

They don't actually think anything, instead are simply commanded to flip to a certain part of a phrasebook under certain situations.

Mop golem.

>> No.31225129


polymorphed enemies into furniture, but keep a nametag on it.

"Steve the chair, for stealing my sweetroll in gradeschool."
"Wilson, and his girlfriend" - double doors

Every door the players smash was a human being at some point.

No OP, Gelatinous Cubes and Mimics were created by Gary Gygax long before the buyout.

I like these and I will find someway to plug them in. Any anon remember any creatures that are in a monster manual?

>> No.31225290

Here you go Op.
Enjoy the cleanest dungeon ever, with great music.

>> No.31225423

Too bad Curse Toes are pretty high-end enemies in DCSS. I tried to stat 'em in PF but in the end it got bit silly.

Death Cobs are less lethal though and def. something a wizard would create.
Some other wizard-made enemies from Crawl would be Toenail Golem, although it would make casters cry ( immune to all elemental damage and incredibly magic-resistant ).

>> No.31225426

Listen OP, here's what you do.

You add a skeleton, and a giant spider. They fight for superiority. If the spider wins, it's just found a new exoskeleton adornment. If the skeleton wins, the giant spider is tamed and the skeleton rides around on it.

You can thank me later.

>> No.31225474

Thanks for that. I almost forgot.
It doesn't have to be for cleaning purposes, just what crazy wizards create to protect their lairs. Like pic related

...and another one

Isn't every single "dire" animal a wizard's creation?

That reminds me, I nabbed this off /tg/ some time ago.

>> No.31228910

OP here. Thanks for that, anon, I'm make good use of that.

I'm just going to say, this is going to be a hassle of an adventure for my players. It isn't designed to kill them, just piss them off, making the wizard the BBEG for the game.
The wizards isn't even really evil, just an asshole. When they finally clear everything from his lair, they go to open the chest and inside is a map and a note saying
"Your treasure lies in another castle"

This theory actually makes a remarkable amount of sense.

>"Also called living bridges, were originally created to guard a certain Wizard's tower, but have since escaped into the wilderness."

I am greatly interested in the ecology of a living bridge and the natural place it's found within the environment.

That's just so fucking stupid, but also really, really, just.. I want to be a arcane zoologist or something.

Just a guy who goes out in the wilderness, ruins, or other places and studies and catalogs species of "outlandish" creatures created by wizards like living god damn bridges.

What does it eat?!
Does it poop?
They must reproduce- how do they do it??!?!

>> No.31230575

I know, it's over the top, but it's exactly what a dickish wizard would create.

And then you have this surprise:
House Hunter mimic

If your players ever get to wherever the garbage goes, an Otyugh could be a good monster to toss in.
