Zack: Daddy ate my eyes!
Steve: This thing is creepy as heck and there can never be too many floating creatures with tentacles.
Zack: I just want to be honest about what we're dealing with on this one: a monster with a butt for a face that pokes out eyes and then throws them at people as poison eyeball hand grenades.
Steve: I don't know about the eyeball hand grenades. All I know is a monster that goes right for the eyes is pretty scary. Getting maimed in D&D can seriously mess you up unless you've got a good cleric.
Zack: In the land of the blind the farty, eye-stabbing blimp monster is king.
Steve: I wonder if these things are the mortal enemies of beholders. Like if you put one of these in a room and a beholder in a room which one would win.
Zack: I'm betting on the one with a disintegrating eye beam.
Steve: You'd assume, but what if this dude gets to the beholder first? It's all over. It'll spear all its eyes and then shoot exploding eyeballs at the beholder like it stumbled drunk into a batting cage.
Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
It's just a little confusing, is all.
