Dungeons and Dragons – Monsters

References – Aberrations

A list of all the available generic aberrations in my game and where to find them for easy reference.

  • Aberration – are utterly alien beings. Many of them have innate magical abilities drawn from the creature’s alien mind rather than the mystical forces of the world.
  • Beholder – A beholder, sometimes called a sphere of many eyes or an eye tyrant, was a large aberration normally found in the Underdark. These large, orb-shaped beings had ten eyestalks and one central eye, each containing powerful magic. Powerful and intelligent, beholders were among the greatest threats to the world.
  • Blood Orchid – They are a type of aberration that resembles flowers with monstrous qualities.
  • Leng – Creature from a far away realm between the stars.
  • Mind Flayer – A group of telepathic brain devouring humanoids.
  • Neogi – A group of spiderlike creatures.
  • Nymph – Relatives of the fey creatures who strayed too far from home.
  • Shoth – The shoth are an aberrant race of oozing humanoids from outside the known planes. Their leader, and namesake, is a creature with god-like powers whose gelatinous body floats like a star in a distant galaxy. The shoth have no home world; instead, they wander the universe inside massive oozing vessels capable of interplanar travel. The largest of these vessels, the Dripping Palace, contains an avatar of Shoth itself.
  • Slaad – Slaadi (singular: slaad, pronounced: /slæd/ slæd or: /slɑːd/ slad) were bipedal, frog-like creatures native to Limbo and to the Supreme Throne.
  • Star Spawn – Starspawn is used as a new grouping for various Lovecraftian monsters, mostly edition upgrades of the Foulspawn and a handful of new faces, such as the D&D Worm That Walks.
  • Tindalos – A group of extra planar hunters.
  • Were-mist – A mist that causes Lycanthropy.
  • Yggdrasil – Creatures part of the world tree’s living sentience.
  • Yig – Servants of the Great Old One (serpent form Immortals)
  • Yothri – Servants of a Great Old One (alchemy and necromancy Immortals)
  • Zheenkeef – Servant of a Great Old One (immortals)
  • gos – Ghosts of Saltmarsh
  • oota – Out of the Abyss
  • typ – Tales of the Yawning Portal
