13th Age: Gibbering Glob
Recently, I posted the above picture to our Twitter and Facebook accounts, asking people to share their thoughts on what abilities it should have. Some background on this, we published this monster as the gibbering glob as in the Pathfinder Book of Beasts: Legendary Foes in an effort to update the gibbering orb, a CR 27 monster. Such a high level monster wasn’t really practical in Pathfinder so we made the gibbering glob a CR 25. That small difference still made it a viable monster for a level 20 group and even lower if they were mythic.
There were some awesome ideas for new abilities among the responses. One response, however, really caught my eye. Submitted by Vojtech Pribyl, this was a near-fully fleshed out monster. Well, I talked it over with our 13th Age developer and we finished the fleshing out. So for your enjoyment, we share with you the gibbering glob for 13th Age. We hope it makes it’s way in to your game.
