Mudmen

This week's session of Beyond the Crystal Cave involves an enchanted pool of mud and a battle with the mudmen that live in it.

There are two types of mudmen in the encounter. These are the worthier opponents - potentially deadly rather than merely annoying.




The other type is the mudman grasper, easily destroyed minions, the function of which is to get in the way, limit movement, and lengthen the encounter rather than pose any serious threat. They're cruder and less well-formed. I actually need 5 of them so I made a few extra, but they may not make it into the kiln before the game on Thursday. That would indeed be unfortunate.




The one in the middle has shiny buttocks.





The scenario immediately reminded me of this scene from Dragon's Lair, the 80s laser disc arcade game animated by Don Bluth.

  1. After seeing your posting this on Google+, I immediately went to youtube to find the Mudmen from Dragon's Lair. Coming across it in your blog, I saw you did the same.
