That would be a funny encounter. Lots of potential kicks to the groins...



Hah! That needs to be an encounter somewhere.

@shimrod -

Thanks for the clarification. I thought the same thing when I saw Rev's comment, but I never got around to looking it up and confirming it.

Yes, and it channels the arcane power of the orb through its eyes. It's a sentry/guardian sort of critter.

It looks like some freaky, winged, embryo/mace thing....

Its talon looks like its designed (possibly by a higher entity) to hold an orb.

Looks like the offspring of a grell, a beholder, and a medusa. A greholdusa. It's probably as confused as you are.

Its mouths are poisonous. A magical venom that causes gradual petrification.



Cool!

@Scott - if you use it, please drop back by and let me know how it turns out.

Also, don't miss this week's addendum.

Good job on this one... I really like how it turned out. Might just be using it in my game soon.

2009-06-15T13:12:58.070-05:00

Thank you Ripper. I have been having fun drawing things lately. The weirder, the better.

A constricting hold would have been cool, but most real snakes are either venomous or constrictors. I can envision the rampant in a crazed frenzy of biting and in constant motion. Maybe it should froth at the mouth...

As per DM discretion, one could add a grab attack as a variant to keep people on their toes. :)

It looks like some bizzarre creature from the Wild, Wild west, with the 'stache and the frilly things on its legs, like cowboy boots

2009-06-14T23:12:19.806-05:00

Wow! I really like the illustration this week. The Yuan-ti Rampant came out pretty well, although i think it should have some kind of constricting hold of some sort...

2009-06-08T18:54:45.353-05:00

Wow, I can just picture it gestating inside a cave dwelling humanoid flesh sack. In its primary stages, the humanoid could have a few reptilian traits and grow a tail. In the secondary stage, the rampant could definitely look like a separate organism from the host, almost like the middle of the creature being green and scaled and disfiguring the trunk and head of the person, while the fleshy arms and legs atrophy. The final stage could be when the eyeless rampant sheds/acid burns off its once human exterior and starts slithering around.

2009-06-07T02:34:44.860-05:00

It's got acid for blood and it gestates inside a human host!

...Okay, one out of two isn't bad.

2009-06-06T13:35:34.158-05:00

their are some feats that have power source as requirement, but its only because they affect at-will attacks of classes in that PS. There is nothing like the feat you made, where it effects the racial power. as I said before, keep going and make some more.

2009-06-06T06:27:06.690-05:00

I had a cold feeling as I posted this that it would turn out to have been done already in some book I don't have. Sure enough...

Still, thanks everyone for the encouragement. I'll have to give the idea some more thought and see what else I come up with.

2009-06-05T07:33:41.313-05:00

I would like to see more (useful) feats around just power source. It seems like the current trend for feats favors specific race/class combos.

2009-06-04T20:01:45.675-05:00

there are a few feats that have power source as requirement, but nothing like this. Its a good idea and I say you should expand on it.

2009-06-04T18:57:45.907-05:00

They have these in Martial Power and Arcane Power, but only a handful each.
