Sweet, to me anyway. Now that I've turned my hand towards novel writing, I find that I love making up my own proverbs for various settings. Go to Comment

Hate to break it to you, but Shinedown is crap.

But that aside... It seems a bit unfocused, and for all the information here, we learn very little about what the creature actually is, looks like, how it behaves. I suppose it's dead, but I'd still like to know about it. Go to Comment

In contrast to the other comments, I think this works fine the way it is; the lack of a description fits the way it functions, a malignant and murderous presence, existing as a kind of personification of near-mindless rage and sadistic hatred. Go to Comment

Musical quality aside.....

While I like the language and presentation of the write up, too much is left to "GM's discression" to be overly useful. Still a fun little idea.

And now the creature might just be hunting those people it was created to destroy, just because.

The thing is now crawling about because it is Evil, killing everyone in a geographic area?

Define what it is doing now, and you will have made big steps to filling out our needs. Go to Comment

This would be a 3/5 vote for me, but the presentation gave it an extra point. I found it enthralling. the aspect of the beast is interesting, and since only two people, now dead, know what it looked like, the DM is free to evince an undead horror (humanoid) best tailored to scaring the crap out of his players, but I cannot escape the image of hungry and malevolent eyes left in a half decayed face.

Shinedown being complete drivel that sold out to a mass movement of 'specialness' aside, me mishearing those lines while I was half asleep helped break a month's worth of writer's block, so I decided that it would be only fitting to put the lyrics in.

*Refrains from saying GM's discresion* I don't know much about my own creation CP, but I'll try to fix your problem. This thing is just senseless rage and sadism personified. It's equiped with an animalistic cunning and a need to torture anything that moves. That cover your question? Go to Comment

It needs more to be fully rated. I like this kind of piece, though several of these animals should be submissions on their own. Go to Comment
