Nope.  (You'll need a copy of Chainmail to get the answer, I believe).

Correct.  Chainmail, pg. 35, last line of the Dragons section:
"Finally, the Purple, or Mottled, Dragon is a rare, fightless [sp] worm with a venomous sting in its tail."

What well-known MMI monster was originally conceived of as a dragon?


Purple worms with the huge hit dice, Brazilian antecedents and the magic flying stones in their heads to fight with the witches?

Yep.

Okay, not really a trivia question, but this might be the best place to post it.  

I just watched Three Days of the Condor again, and noticed that in one of Max Von Sydow's scenes he's shown sitting in his motel room painting miniatures.  Does anyone know what the mini he's holding is?  It almost looked like a werewolf.

Glad you like it, Stephen. I seem to come up with one creature every 3 months or so.

Ok, thought of another one.  (I don't remember the answer, though, so this one is "open book" -- you'll have to look it up and let me know!)

Which NPC character had a pet wombat-like creature?

Definitely someone in the Rogue's gallery...is it Erac's cousin?

I remember the picture, they are sitting down and the wobat has his arms crossed. Head like a beetle.

Question 3: How many facets does the Ring of Gaxx have?

Hi everyone!  I am new to this site, but I think it is awe-inspiring!  I love Dungeons and Dragons, and have been playing for over 20 years (I am 43 years old, by the way.)  I look forward to your collective pearls of wisdom in the future.

I know this answer is too late for the contest, but my guess would have
been The Common Vampire.  Sorry, it wasn't even close... :D

Nine (one for each alignment).

That one was too easy. The item is described in 2E Book of Artifacts in great detail (including the nine facets).  :wink: But  then, that's cheating...

Which module is it from, Frank?

*bump*

Inspired by BTB's D&D Miniatures thread, I thought of this one:

Two characters (that I know of) from classic 1e AD&D modules have individual figures in the D&D Miniatures game that debuted a couple of years ago. Here's a couple of clues:

1. They are from different modules;
2. They are both villains;
3. They are both found at the end or very, very near the end of the modules;
4. When I say "classic," I don't mean Dragonlance or any other crapalicious nonsense. I mean classic.

Now ... name those villains!
