Adrift Posted September 23, 2012 Share Posted September 23, 2012 The purple worm is one of those iconic beasties in DnD. Like many DnD monsters, they have a generally accepted ecology...but as a DM I like to change things up and surprise my players with different takes on the same old monsters. Thus, I give you my variant purple worm. This nasty gave up the underdark, or more rocky-desolate terrain long ago and adapted to a swamp-marshland environment. I used a healthy amount of green stuff to try and sculpt up around his base to cover the rocks and give a more amorphous look to the ground as it is erupting. I also added some 'swamp ick' to his superior aspect and tried to make it look as swampy-mucky as possible. I added some slobber-like venom whipping out of it's mouth to further enhance the idea that it is in motion. I also gave it three protruding teeth to enhance the menace. Not featured in the pictures are 4 additional slobber drops I created and hung from the swamp-muck on his back to enhance the appearance that some swamp water is washing off it's back or, that the muck it really mucky. Next up, putting paint on this newly primed bad-boy. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
