Friday Lart – Motivational D&D Monsters
Fridays, we open the Larchives, Lar’s extensive archive of art work oddities, and share a few pieces.
A day after Dungeons & Dragons publisher Wizards of the Coast announced that they’re taking D&D in a bold new direction, but it’s not a new edition. What even is an edition? We don’t know seemed like a good time to share these motivational stickers Lar made based on classic monsters. He made over a dozen of these (because Lar). Here are my favourites.
Don’t question how “block that eats you” became an iconic threat in a game with thousands of other monsters. Cubey showed up in Disney’s Onward in 2020, and returns to theatres in Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves in 2023. But this Hollywood square isn’t too good to give you a word of encouragement. He admires the effort you put in, and the disembodied hand of his last victim agrees.
I’ve sat at a lot of tables with good, great, and even incredible Dungeon Masters and Game Masters, but you always remember your first. My first Dungeon Master was the lovechild of Yoda and Orko from the animated Dungeons & Dragons, a series I still enjoy revisiting. The idea that I impressed Dungeon Master, makes me weep tears of pride. You guys… I did it!
That’s Moloch It!
Adventurers have been trying to steal the jeweled eyes of the Idol of Moloch since the first edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. Knowing that he thinks my efforts were lit makes me feel like a real winner. That’s right, I won Dungeons & Dragons. And it was advanced!
And You Can Too
If you’d like to see the rest of the set, and maybe buy some stickers to reward your players for their achievements, you can find them all in Lar’s Redbubble store.
