Not a ton of time today, so I’m holding off on working on the dragon concept in favor of doing another lil DnD character!
Snickery’s parent was a dungeon (older mimics can take of the form of caves, houses, dungeons, etc.) that they were separated from as a teeny baby mimic. As an adult they want to find out about their parent and learn more about mimics in general, but have come to enjoy living amongst non-monsters as well, and try their very hardest to be a brave adventurer! As one might expect, they have a bit of an edge when it comes to dungeoneering.
Mimics are a sorely underused monster type in my opinion. So I made one currently tied to a short-story idea called “Food Truck” (which is currently being considered on being folded into the Strange-verse).
This mimic’s “name” is Carmen and she disguises herself as an innocuous food truck that sells smoothies. I imagine this unique cover would have been adopted after the explosion of the trendy food-truck craze that swept across the U.S.
Don’t let her looks or customer service skills fool you.If you’re all alone getting served by her, and there’s no-one else in sight, your gonna end up getting served TO her.
OMG, It’s done! This was a lot of work, but worth every second! :D
I present to you: The Dungeon Master’s Mimic! The idea behind this project was to make one single container that a GM, or well prepared player can store all their RPG needs in and easily carry them from game to game. And what other way to make a chest more roleplaying game related than making it a mimic? :3
It’s made from solid pine that I stained with a nice walnut stain and finished with briwax. All the hardware is steel and brass. It has a soft, 100% wool felt lining to protect the books it’s carrying The main compartment comfortably holds around 5-6 large rule books and a smaller secondary compartment holds an insert that can safely store all your dice, miniatures, tokens and pencils!
It measures 14 inches across, 9 inches deep and 10 inches tall. The main internal compartment measures 12 x 6 x 10 inches.
The teeth are solid wood, too and have been dulled for safety. (I’d still not joke around and slam it shut on your friend’s hand, though…)
This project was loads of fun, even though throughout the built I came across some rather annoying stumbling blocks. Making it would have been a lot easier if I had a table saw :P Still, I’m so happy that it’s finally done and am very proud of how it turned out.
I won’t sell this as usual through my Etsy store. It is a unique item that I put a lot of my heart and soul into and I don’t feel that Etsy’s “first come, first serve” policy on purchases would do it justice. Instead I have listed it on Ebay in a one week auction. I thought that way instead of whoever happens to see it the quickest, it will go to whoever wants it the most ^__^
There is a local beast that poorly mimics animals. The local think it’s harmless and cute, and feed it pity scraps. The creature has adapted. Animals disappear. People start to disappear. The creature can mimic people and animals almost perfectly now.
The magic atmosphere in the R.E.M building sometimes affects the office supplies and creates mimics. These mimics are not malicious in nature but they are mischievous which sometimes makes them a bit of a nuisance. Many will pull harmless pranks that might shock someone, suddenly come to life and mess with someone.
At their worst you may deal with a fridge who eats your lunch or a computer that deletes your work. However, there are cases where employees make friends with the mimics and they can become quite helpful! How you befriend them is up for the employees to find out.
