Having things engulf the characters is an excellent way to make combat interesting. It is a lot of fun to actually put the minifig inside the ooze, and Lego cockpit pieces are perfect for this. The build is really simple: just attach the cockpit to whatever similar-colored bricks you have, and leave enough room in there for a minifig.
Air and water elementals also have attacks that engulf people. The same pieces can be used for oozes and water elementals, but air elementals should be a bit more loose. Instead of making an enclosed space, just pile up windshield pieces:
And of course, no game of D&D would be complete without a Gelatinous Cube:
This is an actual cube; five bricks high is the same distance as six pips wide. It is exactly 10'x10' on the dungeon tiles, the proper size for a Gelatinous Cube, and most minifigs will fit inside.
As you can see from these pictures, you do not need to spend a lot of time building clever or complicated things to be a Lego GM. Just throw together something that conveys the idea of what is happening, and let everyone's imagination handle the rest.
that is soooo cool.reading that got me building my ooze.i think i will make it green.ReplyDelete
