Earth Elemental: The Rock Monster from Galaxy Quest

I was gonna use a screenshot from the movie, but apparently those just don't exist in the right aspect ratio, and I'll be fucked if I'm gonna take the screenshot myself. So you just get a flat image of rocks. Sorry not sorry. Again, earth elementals don't really have much lore to talk about. Nor… Continue reading Earth Elemental: The Rock Monster from Galaxy Quest

Drider: Servants of the Spider Queen (Best of the Bestiary)

I failed the Spider Queen once. Never again.Pellanistra the Drider Aw. I don't need to put the word 'dragon' in the title anymore. That's kind of depressing. You know Quelaag from Dark Souls? Yeah, these guys are that. Just strap a drow on top of it and bam! you're done. Also, give them a shirt.… Continue reading Drider: Servants of the Spider Queen (Best of the Bestiary)
