I'm always partial to a Brain in a Jar. Something that uses telekinetic force to move around and effect the world around it.

Hmmm... This Guru (jack-of-trade monk) is going to turn his attention to enchantment making to.

Creature idea: parasitic creature, incorporeal, mind level 1.
the host rolls an effect die at the start of the action stage. +7 Daze, +12 Stun. the controlling mage may pay additional mana to add to the effect die, 1 point per mana, but you can only pay so much to balance

Whenever I hear, "Brain in a Jar," I think of Lovecraft's fungoid Mi-Go and their brain cylinders. Anything we could do to make them more Etherian and/or psi-ocular?
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Since this is supposed to be a celebration of Laddinfance's contributions, I think I'm going to change my vote to the Brain in a Jar. It does sound fun.

Brain in a jar cant be a creature. As we learned in DvN, if it has a mouth its a creature. If its stationary and has no mouth, its a conjuration. (lol)

...now head in a jar...

It eats knowledge. It's mouth is more metaphysical.

First, brain in a jar doesn't have to be stationary. Second, [mwcard=FWC12]not[/mwcard] all [mwcard=DNC03]creatures[/mwcard] have a [mwcard=FWC16]mouth.[/mwcard]

The point of making it Force instead of Psychic was to give the FM a creature that helped against his Psychic Immunity weakness. If we choose to make it a Nightmare/Fear/Phantasm then it will not help the FM very much as the main complaint is that he really does not have a solid creature that isn't effected by Psychic Immunity. Just my two cents......

does FM need to be helped?

brain in a jar?

- it could be "rooted"
- it could range attack (telepathic)
- it could have a desorienting attack, and a planing-influencing attack (i like the idea to give him no damage-attack)

I believe that is the general consensus, creature count by school including promos and the 1st Academy release:

Arcane - 13
Dark - 37
Holy - 18
Nature - 33
Mind - 3
War - 24

Air - 5
Earth - 3
Fire - 3
Water - 1

the list includes 11 two school "and" Creatures

So as you can see for the Major Schools of Magic, Mind is really lacking and 1 has been declared useless and the other two are meh in usability.

I like all the ideas mentioned here. Maybe the big lvl 5 one most. But I agree with Sike, also give it a decent none mind attack.

When in doubt kill it with fire? I never doubt and crush them right away.
