    Default The Beholder

    I decide to throw this here because i think it could be a really good idea... (again... from the D&D books... i think im a little obsesed with those...) eaither if its useful or not... well... its there...

    The Beholder / Eye of the Tyrant
    A terrifiying yet powerful creature, the Beholder can strike fear easily in the hearts of the enemies, his terryfing look can only be compared with his magical abilities, being able to confuse and destroy hordes of enemies at once the Beholder its the ultimate spellcaster. Beholders are really aggresive creatures who consider everything else inferior to themselves, but his look and magical power can only be surpassed by they're greed.

    Beholder its your ultimate offensive spellcaster available they have the most wide variety of spells of destruction, but they lack of healing spells.

    Stats:
    Health: Medium
    Attack: Medium (They have sharp tooth)
    Defense: Low
    Accuracy: High
    Speed: Medium (They Float)
    Dextery: Low (They're big and clumsy)
    Inteligence: Very High
    Wage: Very High

    Skills:
    Level 1 - Melee Attack/Fireball
    Level 2 - Slow
    Level 3 - Lightning
    Level 4 - Drain
    Level 5 - Freeze
    Level 6 - Hailstorm
    Level 7 - Disruption
    Level 8 - Skeleton Army
    Level 9 - Disease
    Level 10 - Word-of-power

    Another Facts:
    -Beholders float and can pass throght water and lava easily
    -Even with a huge variety of spells, Beholders have a decent physical attack power, but lack of physical defense.
    -Beholders absolutely love researching on the library and are the fastest researchers available.
    -When done researching, Beholder most of the time will do nothing (not even training or praying) unless keeper assing them a specific task.

    Style:
    Support - Beholders can offer a nice support which ranged magical spells if protected well.

    How to obtain:
    100 tiles of treasury
    25 of Library
    25 of temple

    Lair Type:
    i dont know yet :S

    Appearence:

    Side Notes:
    I kinda had a problem with the skills... i didnt quite knew what skills exactly to set him to make him pure magic offensive and because i don't know all the creature spells from DK1 & 2. any subjestions will be accepted.

    Discution, changes, constructive critic to either accept or reject aspects of the creature or the creature itself will be accepted.

    Alright, I feel quite a few problems with this creature already, too powerful. Even with a high payday, that can easily be fooled.

    Level 1 - Melee Attack/Fireball
    Level 2 - Slow
    Level 3 - Lightning
    Level 4 - Drain
    Level 5 - Freeze
    Level 6 - Hailstorm
    Level 7 - Disruption
    Level 8 - Skeleton Army
    Level 9 - Disease
    Level 10 - Word-of-power

    Change the spells to something like this, thus taking out Disease, Skeleton Army, Word-of-Power, Freeze, and Hailstom because those don't seem to fit too well with this creature. Replace Lightning with Invisibility as he seems to be that type of creature.

    Level 1 - Melee Attack/Fireball
    Level 3 - Slow
    Level 5 - Invisibility
    Level 7 - Drain
    Level 9 - Disruption

    Maybe make him not the best researcher as the warlock is for the evil side.

    And no creature should need 100 tiles of a room, that means 4 25 by 25Treasuries. But this may not matter as he also needs a Temple, which may cause you to have more Treasuries. I'd change it to 75 tiles, at least.

    Looks cool though. I think he should be able to see the invisible, not because he's a giant eye, but because "No one can hide from him".

    Edit-
    You know, this reminds me of the ghost. Perhaps he could be some kind of upgraded ghost that is more pricy and rare. This wouldn't totally render the ghost useless like the Demon Spawn because of the Dragons.

    It's one of the reasons why I log on here, the ideas. The other is the RPG.
