Something Awful has a piece on the freakiest monsters from the AD&D 1e Monster Manual! My favorite is the Hippocampus, also my daughters’ favorite on merry-go-rounds everywhere. “They differ from a normal seahorse in that they have a long rear body similar to that of a great fish.” Think about that for a minute.
Part 2 is coming Friday!
Well…to be fair the hippocampus is actually based on a mythological creature. So it’s hardly fair t0 peg that one on TSR.
Read more carefully… What does a normal seahorse look like again?
They differ from a normal seahorse in that no part of them looks like a seahorse!
Part 2’s up!
