Talk:Inspired (5e Creature)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Heyo! Been looking at videos and screenshots, and I'm wondering if "Huge" might be a more accurate size for this creature than "Gargantuan" Here's a timestamp link that might give a sense of the scale compared to a medium humanoid: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jH8_lesBRY8&t=8m44s)

If you still think "Gargantuan" is more accurate though, then I will defer to your judgement on this matter. Clockwerk66 (talk) 02:06, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

I spent some time staring at the D&D size comparison piccy and stills from the video, and was agonizing between gargantuan and huge. The purple worm in the diagram doesn't represent the minimum size for gargantuan. The inspired's size is more apparent when it coils around Bayonetta (she's smaller than its head), and I also noted that Bayonetta herself is really tall. I ask myself what space it would take up, coiled up like a snake. Would it fill a two-up-two-down house? (20 ft across and tall) - I think so.
But really, it could be either, if Huge "feels" better, then it's not a problem to change it. Marasmusine (talk) 14:09, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
looking into it further, the Behir monster from the MM is Huge sized, and is perfectly capable of swallowing Medium sized creatures whole, and THAT monster's basically a massive serpent with legs. Knowing that, I don't see why Huge wouldn't be an unreasonable size for the Inspired, since that would still be big enough to swallow people whole and stuff. It would just be one of the "bigger" Huge-sized creatures. Clockwerk66 (talk) 15:41, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
You know now of course I'm going to do both. Marasmusine (talk) 16:45, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Well, as long as the Huge one is the one with CR18, then I guess I don't mind. Clockwerk66 (talk) 17:31, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Okay, the jade one is definitely gargantuan, as it dwarfs the big missile the characters are riding on :) Nearly done. Marasmusine (talk) 22:44, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

It's more or less done, pending any tweaks you want me to make. I will give it a once-over in the morning with fresh eyes. Marasmusine (talk) 23:18, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

Just went and confirmed the complete order on Fiverr. Thank you very much for you work once again! :D Clockwerk66 (talk) 23:29, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

I can't help but think that the jade inspired should be on its own page, and that the two should be linked via a page called something like "Inspired (Category)", a la Oozes (5e Creature) (and similar pages). The tables on 5e Monsters get all stretched when a page has more than the template is listed more than once and it lists creatures in CRs that they aren't (which I think looks a little messy).
