Displacer Cube Wins!
Creature Competition: Hybrids

What do the owlbear, dragon turtle, or peryton all have in common (aside from producing some very confusing scat)? As hybrids, their monstrosity comes from their being a combination of creatures. And the game is flush with them.

Here's your chance to vote for your favorite new hybrid. In each pairing, which hybrid do you choose to move on? We'll stage a full round of voting each week, until we come down to the final winner. (Please note, if you experience trouble voting, you may need to sign in as a community member. Not yet a community member? Register today!).

Our thanks and appreciation to everyone who submitted an entry in our hybrid contest. We thoroughly enjoyed reading your creations, as wonderfully strange as they were!

Displacer Cube vs Intellect Tyrant
Displacer Cube
It's rumored that a gelatinous cube once fed exclusively in displacer beasts, and absorbed something of their qualities. Already difficult to spot, the displacer cube's actual location may be shifted somewhere else entirely. It attacks with gelatinous tentacles that reach out and inflict acidic damage. It's noted that while displacer cubes are not necessarily interested in absorbing adventurers, they can nonetheless be very territorial.
Intellect Tyrant
Intellect devourers do not breed in the conventional sense. Rather, new larvae spawn from the brain tissue of creatures killed by other intellect devourers. Never does this occur with more terrifying results than when the host creature is a beholder. These hybrids appear as large intellect devourers, but with atrophied limbs and the beholder's ability to hover; although they lack eye stalks, a visible aura of psionic tendrils surrounds them, used to cast the creature's mind-controlling abilities. They are the ultimate puppet masters.
