Mythological Figures & Maleficent Monsters: suggest who to include


Well, that was fun
Staff member
We will be producing a hardcover book next year called Mythological Figures & Maleficent Monsters. It's inspired by Mike Myler's awesome weekly column here at EN World, though it will be monster/NPC stat blocks rather than character builds.

These can be mythological figures, such as Lancelot, or monsters, such as Cerberus. Gods, demi-gods etc. are welcome; but remember, if it has a stat block somebody can kill it.

This is the full list as it stands at present. These are all (a) fictional, (b) individual (so no creature types, just specific named beings), and (c) public domain. I'd like to get this list up to 100 total, so another 42 are needed. So, if there's somebody you'd like to see, suggest them below. Also, include a link in case I don't know who it is.
