Why wasn’t there an installment about a female mad scientist called Reanimatrix? That would be a great cult horror movie title!
(What would the plot be, you ask? Anything. Herbert West has a sister or a girl student he makes his apprentice. Herbert West gets into an academic rivalry with a lady biochemist and they enter into a bloody war of escalation over who can make the better zombie. Herbert West gets killed and an ambitious female med student reanimates him. I’m just saying, it’s too good a title to waste.)
The Beholder is the best idea Gary Gygax ever had and nobody can be assed to say why. I’ve seen people agonize over the Beholder, trying to improve on the overall model, and it’s never worked for me. Thing is, you can’t deliberately improve a monster until you have a working theory for why it worked in the first place, and I couldn’t have told you what makes Beholders good until like a couple of days ago.
