But yes, it is a charming mimic, the plague of old dungeons and unwary travelers.
Nostalgic, really - modern adventurers sometimes are so savvy that they will only touch the chest with 10-feet pole….

But you buy a 10 foot ladder and then cut it down to 3 foot poles and you will gain 4 cp selling 3 foot poles. The way the first power games became billionaires at level 1 wink

Heh, well, it would work…. unless there is no demand for 3-foot poles because in order to become billionaires with 4cp-per-pole profit you’d have to sell more poles than there are people (monsters included) in most RPG worlds and the market is flooded with those poles :D

That’s just one of those stupid powergamer things when interpret rules RAW (Rules As Written) and not RAI (Rules As Intended).
If someone had tried that in any game run by me they would end up as shish-kebab on those 3 foot poles, don’t mess with the 3’-pole makers guild wink

sure,  it sort of calls for lip syncing….  http://www.daz3d.com/software/mimic/mimic-pro


but the extra work involved would probably make it “not a freebie”

i was actually thinking about making some mimic morphs for it, but i’m not sure what to do with that dang tongue… maybe just make it invisible and do the morphs for the rest of the mouth

For some reason, that makes me think of the Luggage from Terry Pratchett’s “Discworld” series.

Maybe that’ll be Valandar’s next project ...

THANK YOU VALANDER!!!

My hubby and I introduced our son to D&D a few months ago. Mimics are his favorite monsters. He even made one out of an arts&craft; chest from a craft store. I’m going to have fun rendering pictures of his mage running away.

I was actually thinking just today of somehow making a Mimic type monster… and lo-and-behold, I check the store and what’s there? This beauty. It looks awesome! Now if we can just get some sort of slime/ooze monster, I think we have most of the classic D&D type monsters covered in the store grin

...need a rust monster.  Loved it when the big tough armoured fighter quivered in fear and ran off screaming like a little girl because of something not much bigger than a “Texas speed bump” (armadillo).

Still remember the cartoon in the original AD&D P.H. of the fighter jumping into the mage’s arms for protection from the little bugger.

This critter is really nice; it brings back a lot of memories. The tentacles have a bunch of morphs/pose controls, which is really useful. The only problem I’m having is if I apply the ‘rage’ pose, the bases of the tentacles get weird-looking, like there’s a notch taken out of each one.
