    DRAGON #360 Art Gallery: Dryad

    That thing from Design & Development: Cosmology (9/26) is supposed to be a dryad?!?

    Ummm...no. Mind you, it says "Concept: Dryad", so perhaps there is still time for them to get it right.

    Well, there is already a mini that looks like that too, so I guess they are sticking with it...

    I like the new dryad. Tree-like = Better.

    Well, you know...it was the classic problem all over again. I mean, they just couldn't call them Entwives, could they? And Treantwives is awkward to pronounce. And since there were enough comments about slutty-looking fey in the MM1, they probably went with the path of least resistance...you can call this dryad a lot, but slutty it ain't.

    Frankly, a monster the players can stab is more useful to me than a monster they can't.

    This looks a lot more stabbable than the "hot chick with nonviolent powers" dryad type.

    This is how Games-Workshop does their dryads as well

    Wierd that D&D would follow them so closely.

    there's a joke there... but I'm not going to be the first...

    Me, I prefer the "hot chick with nonviolent powers" dryad. D&D is NOT solely about combat. Having a fey that charms her opponents, occasionally keeping the ones she fancies, is infinitely more interesting than that topiary abomination.

    Aren't they calling this the "Blackwoods Dryad"? So maybe its an evil or feral version, not the classic type we're used to?

    Personally, I prefer the slutty type, but it will be nice to have a version that's meant to be fought.

    I'd like to see its stats (preferably in context with the rest of 4e) before I pass final judgment on the design.
