A known monster?

The role-playing games (I-X) that started it all and the various spin-offs (including Dark Messiah).

To me it looks like a mix between half lifes head crab and D&Ds mind flayers.

Looks like an eye-less Evil Eye to me.

This monster is given details about what it is... there was a news link about creatures in the game... http://www.celestialheavens.com/dmomm/c ... Hugger.jpg

There you go, It's called a facehugger. But I think they should just call it a Beholder. I asumed it was new for Dark Messiah :P

I think Vitirr refered to the picture of terror from M&M.

MMIX had not good graphics but some monsters were really cool.

Oooh, right :P

I don' think the Terror looks anything like the facehugger though really... I mean I know the graphics quality is different, but only the teeth and the tentacles are even close...

Thanks a lot. They look different but there some resemblance.

Anybody knows if they share any powers?. The facehuggers use electric attacks to stunt their enemies and then looks like they just swallow them.

So it's basically just a gigantic headcrab of sorts, yeah it sort of does look like the MMIX terrors, colors and tentacles different though.

Not really much of a 'completely different new creature' really, just another underground octopoid, maybe something that hasn't appeared much in HoMM but certainly nothing we haven't seen before.
Looking at the picture it will probably be really slow, and they'll probably place it behind corners and things, the effect of running into one close up would certainly be much more shocking than seeing them moving slowly in the distance.
Happy Millenium!

Unless, of course, they fall down on you/burst out of the ground.
Or even teleport their way into frightening your senses!

I've never enjoyed horror films, let alone games, that much.. my paranoia is quite present as it is. Either way, it does remind alot of the Evil Eye with the tentacles, but there are alot of other creatures with, eh, tentacles. But are those.. horns..?

Beholder is the original creature!Why cant you say it looks like a beholder without the eye?!

And I supose it will be a fast one.Floaters usually are.

Wha.. but here I thought Beholders were big balls(With two big eyes and a lovely mouth) with a dozen tentacles shooting out with eyes on them!?..
These things are like balls on a bunch of legs.. except.. they're floating.
Anyway, Evil Eye is easier to type than Beholder, there's your justification!

And it just gives the impression of 'slow', like a beholder(They are slow, right?). If it's fast, I'll certainly have a few nightmares. (Not that I recall my dreams)

Beholders in heroes are actually with a big eye and lots of tentacles,and evil eyes are abominations of these marvelous creatures!And beholders are very fast,both the heroes and D&D ones(especially the D&D ones).
