It’s day 18 of the D&D 30 Day Challenge! And again I’m going to talk about a favorite monster. This time it’s the planar beings. From what I understand, planar being is not a creature type but a collection of creatures that do not hail from the material plane. And these can be aberrations, celestials, elementals, humanoids, devils, demons, fey and others. However, since the challenge already covers some of those types, today I will pick from types that don’t have their own day. These are celestials, devils, fey and the demons. Since they more than one type I’ll probably mention more than one creature today, too.
My favorite celestial is the Couatl. I really like their flavor and their art in the Monster Manual of 5th Edition. Also, their lore is quite intriguing for me and leaves a lot of space to create anything you want for them.
My favorite demon is the Balor, of course. It’s the most badass and most magnificent(I’m sure magnificent is not the first word that comes to mind when you want to talk about demons) demon in the Monster Manual. Also *cough* Lord of the Rings *cough*.
As for the devils, the Imp takes the win. It’s not the strongest or the smartest. It’s kinda weak but that’s good because, given the right players and some roleplaying, you can have a lot of fun!
And for a fey creature I’ll do the same thing I did with the devils and pick the Satyr. They, too, have a lot of potential for non-combat encounter fun. Don’t get me wrong, Satyrs can fight, too, but I’d rather not use them that way.
And that’s all for now. I’m done. Four planar beings I like. Now, if you excuse me, I’ll go rest because I had a really long day and I’ll be back tomorrow with my favorite elemental, plant and construct!
So until then, have fun!
P.S: If you think I have missed a type or a monster that’s worth mentioning, feel free telling me by leaving a comment.
