The 'Boiled Boiler'!

Its a bit cliche as far as his background, but the "boiling" makes him stand out from the throng of "wronged, and ticked off baddies"

like I sort of said, it can be lots better. But I like the boiled/boils others part. So thats almost all I need for inspiration to make up the rest myself. Feeling inspired, makes me give decent vote. Go to Comment

It does bring me in mind of an Aquatic Freddie Kruger, minus the metal claws...

Think it does make a useful sea-based boogyman. Go to Comment

Good one. A nice blend of politics and combat. It'd be great to get a player hooked on some powerfully addictive drug without their knowledge. Could lead to some interesting aftereffects. Go to Comment

Funny that the last post was 'this is one of my older ones' and that post is from 8 years ago :)

I'm not claiming that is a particularly good submission (especially compared to other of Captain Penguin's stuff), but I've always had quite a soft spot for it nonetheless. I HoHed it partly because it's a perfect example of how even 2 star submissions can (sometimes) add a lot to this site and partly because, well, the concept of "a creature that eats space-time and is a mile long" is quite cool, there's no getting away from it!

The Dhole is no good if *awake* but as the beast which the cultists are trying to awake it is very good indeed.2/5 as it is, but 4/5 if it is used in the right way. Go to Comment

Ancient Gamer's comment on 2005-03-29 07:47 AM
I disagree; not with your critique of the Creature, sorry Cap, but with your evaluation of powerful beings.

Powerful beasts, like Dholes, "Cthulhus", Dragons, Gods, Arch Demons, etc... ARE good for a purpose. While I agree with your assessment in regards to combat and ridiculously high level stuff, I find powerful beasts such as these good for ANOTHER purpose.

There are legends and myths to be built around such creatures. There are stellar constellations foresaying their arrival, ancient prophecies speaking of their manifestation. I cannot recount the endless plots that can be built around such legends and prophecies.

In addition you have to consider the tales and legends of such creatures. The fear which can be generated as PCs read a passage in an old cultist's journal is invaluable for building tension and a proper atmosphere for your game.

As a matter of fact I recently created a powerful being myself, just a short time ago, for Cheka's setting. That does not have to mean that you should actually USE it. Ambience my friend, ambience.

Cap: I think the Dhole would be ok, if it was not named after a Cthulhu mythos entity. (In some places this post is a Dhole (the original) rip off). Go to Comment

Dhole, huh? I see someone likes the Cthulhu Mythos, aye? I know that the Dholes in the Mythos were tough mofos, but this fellow's rather overkill. If the thing's so insanely powerful, then he really won't be an active part of any game... just like the Tarrasque (poor, poor Tarrasque). Go to Comment

Ouroboros's comment on 2008-10-05 04:34 AM
The idea itself is a good one, the Dhole could be the focus of an entire campaign... some destuctive sorecerer wants to awaken the ancient threat to help bring about the end of the world? Its a bit munchkin, sure, but sometimes a new twist on the überpowerful monster can be fun.. It´s not up to the usual high standards of the Cap´ns works, but not as bad as its made out to be.. I could work with this..

And of course, we can use it as a lesson that even the best among us can have a bad day..:-)

Edit: I do like the idea of a all-powerful devourer slumbering deep beneath the earth, perhaps to be awakened at the end of Creation. Yep, I like that...
