Make a Monster part 2

Wow, there were so many comments with lots of great ideas for a new enemy. You guys rock! It was pretty hard to narrow it down to 3, so let's go with 4 options instead.  

One of my artists, Manolis Frangidis, is lightning fast and made line art for for all 4 options. These will look even better in full color, but it gives you a good idea what we're going for.

There were 8 different people who mentioned a Shapeshifter, so I had to include that one. The Giant Platypus just seemed hilarious to me, and the unicorn and phoenix are fantasy staples that also deserved a place in my opinion. Now it's time for you to vote on your favorite!

      @Michael - granted.... well, the Platypus is definitely not as silly as this:

      @john C while I get where you’re coming with by the owlbear being similar to the giant platypus the other two you mention (hippocampus and dragon turtle) are different. You see these two are actual mythological creatures. They weren’t made up for that game. Hippocampus is Greek and dragon turtle is Chinese.

      I suggested shapeshifter, but upon opening the update and seeing the art, there was no doubt in my mind that we really needed the platypus!!!

      Oops.. sorry.. NOW kind of a staple (not NOT kind of a staple).

      Well...
      I'm likely the oldest guy here. I did not play the original D&D, but I jumped in with AD&D (first edition), and if they can have an Owlbear (not kind of a staple of RPGs) and a Dragon Turtle and a Hippocampus (seahorse), then why is a giant monster platypus?

      And although it is not a giant monster, the platypus IS recognized in D20PFSRD:

      So this one just ate something radioactive (a la Gojira) while tooling around in the water...

      Haha I get that. I like the game regardless and hope for more later on. I can see so much more being added to it in the future and hope it does well. My nephew like the game and it’s something that’s equally fun with 2-3 people. Maybe later the game will expand past 4. Either way, even though bummed out, it doesn’t ruin the game for me. And since I’m the one buying it (not them) that’s what matters

      @Michael King: You could always just rip up the card if your group hates it that much. The game is perfectly playable with one card less.

      @dudicles I actually agree with you. It bummed my entire group out. We found it silly and unnecessary.

      Also, I understand we have a giant rat but they have been used in other dungeon games or fantasy realms. I mean The Princess Bride gives us the giant swamp rats. Giant platypus is weird to me but sadly will win based on the votes.

      I think the biggest shame is that half my group now wants nothing to do with the game cause of it. But what can ya do, can’t appease everyone I guess.

      @Michael King: If Heroes of Tenefyr is successful enough to make an expansion, then I will certainly use the other options. Would be a waste of good art otherwise :)

      @Dudicles: There's already a Giant Rat in the game, so there's a precedent for oversized animals in this world ;)

      I'm actually bummed that it's going to be a giant platypus. It seems completely out of place and doesn't fit with the entire rest of the game.

      Might we see some of the other options in an expansion down the road?
