Beware the Pigaloth
« on: March 26, 2018, 09:24:20 AM »
IC: The Rime of the Great Space Pat
Beware the Pigaloth, child
And mind the wereladoo-
For e'en Kurt walks free of chains
Beneath the Sun of Fish.


Here's an interesting article about using a neural network to generate D&D monster names.

Pretty much all of the monsters are amazing.  From the list:

  • Owlborn
  • Ogre, Space
  • Dragon, Curple Lard
  • Durp Snake
  • Cat, Stone
  • Hatfright
  • Purple Bird
  • Cloud of Chaos
  • Mommy, Greater
  • Dwarf, Giant
  • Burglestar
  • Kurt
  • Fish, Sun of
  • Memeball

I want to stat out literally every monster on this list.
Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
For it was all ripe for dreaming
Oh, how we danced away all of the lights
We've always been out of our minds

“Feast, Stone” is probably my favorite name on the list and I can’t properly explain why. It’s such a weird name for a presumably animate creature that it could be anything but it’s probably not pleasant.

Personally, I'm terrified of the "Spectral Woof Greepy."

Durp Snake is up there as one of my faves. As is Kurt; it's so innocuous that I can't imagine it as anything but horrible.

I wonder what the Hatfright would be? A reanimated set of clothing haunted by its dead owner? A sinister spirit that inhabits hats? A mind flayer who is so preoccupied with showing off its hat collection that it takes no actions?

The possibilities are endless!

I imagine an Illithid shaped like a hat that tricks it's owners into wearing it, and then eats it's brains.

A Black Willow Unicorn sounds amazing. I imagine a horrific black Giraffe with a large horn on it's head
