Duergar Also Known As The Gray Dwarf Dungeons and Dragons Monsters

Duergar Also Known As The Gray Dwarf| Dungeons and Dragons Monsters We continue with are Dungeons and Dragons Monsters series.

This time we plumbing the depths of the underdark to discuss the Duergar also known as gray dwarves. Gray dwarves are very interesting in their path into the monster manual comes from them being regular dwarves that were enslave by mindflayers.

The duergars captivity twisted them into what they are today. From slaves to slavers and tyrants of the underdark. In a lot of ways the duergar are like their other dwarf cousins. Only far more evil and sinister.

What you think of gray dwarves? Would you allow a gray dwarf player character in your game? We got the drow in the PHB, should the duergar been included as well?

I've always been ashamed of the stigma that gaming and my other nerdy and geeky pursuits summon forth. Recently I decided screw it! This is who I am the world be damned. From now on I'm gonna be a geek, nerd, or however folks want to judge me and just enjoy life. Currently one of my greatest joys is introducing my 13 yr old son to table top RPG's.

Episode 43 of Nerdarchy the Podcast Year One

Here is another one of our early Dungeons and Dragons Monster vids. Minotaur has been a favorite monster for our group from the beginning. My love for this monster has roots in Dragonlance.

I’ve been hooked since I was first introduced to the character Kaz and Huma. Also the pirate/viking feel of Krynn minotaurs is a lot of fun.

We’re Talking The Maze Marauding Minotaur |Dungeons and Dragons Monsters

We’re Talking The Maze Marauding Minotaur |Dungeons and Dragons Monsters The minotaur is a classic monster not only from the various editions of dungeons and dragons but greek mythology. I’ve always been draw to the brutish power of this D&D monster. It was one of the very first monstrous races I ever played in a RPG game. On Krynn the Dragonlance setting minotaurs were one of the player character races. Later in the humanoids handbook for 2nd edition AD&D the minotaurs would surface again. In 3.5 D&D they’d come back yet again with Savage Species another great D&D book about playing monster characters in the game. From behind the DM’s screen I’ve always enjoyed pitting these monsters against my players. Feel free to share your monster stories with us.
