Why is he crying?
>>
>>87492809
He's trapped in The World's Shittiest Role-Playing Game.
>>
>>87492809
He saw another beholder. Try to keep up.
>>
>>87492821
Is the guy in the bottom right picking his nose or catcalling the beholder?

We don't call them that

I have always thought beholders looked lame. I don't know a single person that thinks they look cool. Do you think they look cool?
>>
>>87501240
they look alien.

Are you operating under the OGL?

I like em.
They're goofy but malevolent balls of insane bad magic.
>>
>>87501268
The OGL didn't covered the use of Beholders. They either needed special permission or pay royalties to use beholders named as beholders.

>tfw I see another bee holder
>>
>>87492809
He is no longer allowed to be a racist due to WOTC retcons
>>
>>87501336
Oh, interesting.

I thought that since things like Beholders, Illithids, Slaad, Githyanki, etc. were the only things that were actually copyrightable in general, they would be covered by the OGL.

I guess it was only for the precise wording, then?
>>
>>87501279
The undead ones are spoopy
>>
>>87492818

Worse still, he's one of their notable unique monsters. He's never going to not be in dnd.
>>
>>87501447
yeah, for some reason there are a few of dnd specific races&designs that wotc don't care being copied into other systems but Beholder and a few others (i don't remember) they protect to the point of going to court.
Think thats also why pathfinder changed lots of the designs and didn't use beholders. >>87501158 is probably the same case.
>>
>>87502645
>but Beholder and a few others (i don't remember) they protect to the point of going to court.

Beholders specifically they've used as a symbol of the game in past, so that's probably it.

How'd this guy get a pass?
>>
>>87502742
Cacodemons have two back holes for sexual. Beholders do not.
>>
>>87502742
1. horns
2. no accessory eye stalks
>>
>>87502863
Ah, of course. Silly me.
>>87502884
Astral Dreadnaught was only speculated to be beholder related iirc. The cacodemon is very clearly an 'homage' to the astral dread, more just wondering if anyone has an idea why this wasn't an issue in a more litigious time frame of older tsr stuff.
