    Default [3.X] Vote Up a Monster #2: The Votening! (Monster Complete, PEACH)

    Well, I had such a nice turnout for the last Vote Up a Monster contest (& a lot of fun making the resultant creature, the Gatekeeper), that I decided to do another one. I am, again, soliciting votes on a number of aspects on this creature. Here are the aspects, in order:

    I'd like to see a Fey (Angel) creature; I like the idea of angels as messengers, and the elaborate courts of Faerie would certainly have their share of those.

    Plus, y'know, I'm sick of goody-two-shoes angels.

    I like Lord Gareth's idea, though goody-two-shoes are apparently too good for him.

    Hey, hey, I play plenty of paladins who are honest-to-god good people. I just don't like seeing angels, a major figure of both purity AND foulness, being dumbed down to just purity.

    Only fallen angels are really symbols of foulness prior to the modern era... the rest is the result of syncretism mostly.

    Now, if you mean a profane (as in, not sacred - mundane would be a good word) messenger who isn't high and mighty, sounds cool.

    I'll vote Construct (Angel, Cold)

    If you can do THAT, I will be most impressed.

    (It's the slaad - they've got me thinking like they do.)

    Yeah, I want an ooze this time. But swarm doesn't really fit oozes, and angelic is too awesome to pass right now.

    Damnit afroakuma, that's what I was thinking! Well...partly what I was thinking.

    Angel is a given, of course, and I'll also throw in a vote for Fey (Augmented Construct). Best of both worlds!

    I love these things!

    Sorry to rain on parades, but by RAW Angels have to be Outsiders. If Zeta Kai is okay changing it that's fine, but I just thought I'd point it out.

    I'm going with Construct (Cold, Swarm).

    Best post EVAR.

    RTG is correct, though. If the votes swing that way, we'll have to resolve it in some fashion. I prefer to work within the RAW, but as always, the quality of the monster is paramount.

    By the way, all votes are currently tallied. Please continue voting for the type/subtype.

    I would vote Construct [Angel] but that doesn't really work too well. >_>

    Can't remember seeing one in WotC-material, so it could be interesting.

    Psst...we're homebrewers. We can tell RAW to screw itself in some situations. This is one of them
