Ropers!












The Roper is one of my favorite classic beasties, right up there with the Carrion Crawler and Flail Snail. Frankly, I've never understood why 90% of D&D book covers don't consist of a Roper and a scantily clad female (I hear Raggi needs a good cover for his upcoming RC, what do you think?)! Speaking of which, can you guess which of these illustrations was done by Zak of Playing D&D with Porn Stars?

Happy Roping!

  2. I know which one Zak did, but that's because I follow his blog, too. This one by Brian "Glad" Thomas is my favorite: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll59/GladArt/Roper-1.jpg

  3. I always thought of Mr. Roper whenever the creature came up. He definitely wouldn't have trouble getting the rent!

  4. Al: I had no idea you were such a roper fan :D Do you have any inside info about the development of the roper that would tell us why the roper on the MM cover has two eyes instead of just one??

  5. Paizo's take on the Roper is pretty funny. It's in one of their Dungeon Classics Revised books.
