So here’s the art out of the old D&D Dungeon Masters Guide. Let me tell ya, bubbles don’t last a very long time around a raging dragon vs sorcerer combo. I love how the dragons wings don’t really exist. They’re just all sort of spilling into the spindly armed wizard dude who has a really long left arm. If you enjoy this post, go check out the follow up one I did for the Forgotten Realms 2e supplement.
Here we have a classic depiction of a dude getting nailed by a gorgons nose cannons. It’s an easy mistake to make. Those things look so docile till you rush at it with half a dozen friends screaming. Also note the chick getting perforated by a magic arrow before being able to lob her holy hand grenade. The guy at the forefront has just realised he could be easily used as a meme expression in 20 years time.
