The Ghoulsbane would go really well with the Ghoul Queen encounter.....

I'll probably use it that way too.

 

For those of you wondering what it is, I will say that it was inspired by the sussurus from the '81 Fiend Folio, easily one of the most obscure old school monsters. I can see it fitting a few roles (eg popup skull pile, large vine horror, small tendriculous, etc). TBH I was caught up in the mood of the Halloween season, and I wanted to do something that would be horrifying - all those glowing eyes staring at you from the dark.....

I really love that monster! Thank you for making it ^_^

My baby will be 2 years old when this fulfills... is that too young to get her into painting them? :lol:

My kids both started to show an interest when they were four.  YMMV in either direction.

I'm willing to bet if she is into your paints at two years old, you probably won't be too thrilled...

Regarding the tentacles-and-eyes controversy, it seems to me that WotC was doing that whole OGL thing where whey were opening parts of D&D to the public to the extent that publishers could make third-party content more easily and so on, but there were specific things that they retained as their own hands-off-without-licensing permission, including a few specific monsters, one of which subsequently became something of an advertising mascot.  As long as other companies took sufficient effort to make a "not-at-all-that-monster-honestly" knock-off, such that it doesn't have the same name and doesn't exactly look the same to the degree that the public doesn't get confused, they would probably be able to fly it in under the legal radar.

 

Hence, the Eye Beast, which totally doesn't look like anything in any WotC/Hasbro monster manual today:

I've not seen whatever got hit with that C&D, but I'd be willing to bet it copied WotC/Hasbro's IP closely enough to arguably cause some confusion (which isn't hard to imagine, considering what was said earlier about the Kickstarter comments and the inability of many of the backers to simply read back a couple comments earlier or read the campaign's FAQ or main page for an answer....)

the worst examples ive seen , i think:

 

- Final Fantasy 2 IIRC, i think it was, has a boss called a marilith and its the same as the D&D one (the hindu inspired 6 armed snake tanar'ri demon)

- demon souls video game  -they literally have creatures called mind flayers, that look the same, use a psionic blast and if it hits you, you are stunned as they run over and eat your brain

 

hehe

Apparently the Pledge Manager is down for some, and not for others. I can't access it. 

 

Based on KS comments from ~7-8 hours ago, it seems the teased (not truly revealed) Hirelings set was added into the PM.
