Dungeons & Dragons and Photoshop are teaming up to give fans a chance to create their own monster–bring your best beast, the winner will receive $5,000 and their creation will live on in D&D history as the Terror of Undermountain.
The legendary Megadungeon of Undermountain is home to the dread wizard Halaster Blackcloak, and more than 18 levels of horrors, fiends, aboinations, aberrations, undead, devils, and goblins. Now, Wizards of the Coast and Adobe Photoshop want to see your creation added to the laundry list of creatures lurking within Undermountain. Together the two are forming a shadowy cabal (and their cooperation in the past is noted) in order to find rare, undiscovered creatures in the form of a contest that you, yes you, can enter. One lucky winner will receive a starter Dragon Hoard (to the tune of five thousand dollars) as well as some of the ultimate bragging rights–seeing their creation take shape as a miniature.
Maybe not quite like that though…
Yes, thanks to Adobe and Wizards, your wildest imaginations could be given form. When was the last time you had an opportunity like that? Probably 1984, when Gozer the Gozerian demanded that you choose the form of the Destructor. And that didn’t go over so well–so many Shuvs and Zuuls roasted, and all because you could only think of a Giant Slor. But you’re no Meketrex supplicant, no siree. This is your chance to show those fools at the University. They laughed at you in Vienna, the narrow-minded fools. They wouldn’t know greatness if it were staring them in the face… but here at last is your chance to show them… show them ALL! You can seize the very power of the GODS THEMSELVES and create (plastic) LIIIIIIFE.
