Dagonites for 0e and 5e

The horrid Dagonites can be readily ported back to 0e as well as forward to 5e. One interesting element of 5e monster design is the extreme reluctance to give monsters spellcasting ability. Most standard 5e demons, for example, do not come with the many spells that they have wielded since Eldritch Wizardry. (There is an option in the Monster Manual for adding this ability back in.)

In some ways, this elision is a sensible design decision: many of the original spells were fairly weak, and a grab-bag of minor abilities dilutes some of the thematic focus of the monster. And from a practical standpoint, in most encounters a monster will only have limited opportunity to use spells. Starting with 3.5e the designers began to prune back the number of spell-like abilities given to demons and to boost their power. This editing continued into 4e until reaching its conclusion in 5e, where the spells were mostly dropped altogether. Why not save these for a monster like the lich, where spellcasting is central to the concept?

That said, I do think there is something limiting about exclusively viewing monster design through the prism of a combat encounter. There should be room to occasionally give monsters interesting or useful non-combat abilities. For the dagonites, I felt like using cleric spells was an important part of their concept, so I retained the spellcasting for 5e.

The following text is Open Game Content.

Dagonite

This grotesque creature has the tail and body of a scaled fish but the head of a bearded man, its gaping mouth lined with tiny, jagged teeth. Two frog-like forelegs end in webbed hands and are matched with two sweeping pectoral fins.

Vile Creatures of the Deep. The dagonites are rarely seen abominations that dwell in warm, shallow seas. They readily prey upon all other intelligent aquatic creatures.

Bearers of an Ancient Curse. Dagonites are rumored to be the descendants of wicked humans who were transformed into monsters when their mighty kingdom was sunk beneath the waves as divine punishment.

Unholy Disciples of Chaos and Evil. The dagonites owe allegiance to an ancient and powerful demon prince of immense size and horrific appearance, said to dwell in the inky depths of an Abyssal sea. This prince endows his servitors with dark spells.

Flopping, Hopping, Croaking, Bleating: Dagonites

I cannot think of the deep sea without shuddering at the nameless things that may at this very moment be crawling and floundering on its slimy bed, worshipping their ancient stone idols and carving their own detestable likenesses on submarine obelisks of water-soaked granite.
—H.P. Lovecraft, “Dagon”

The ixitxachitl are one of the stranger and more recognizable D&D monsters, and not just because of their infamously difficult name. They first appeared in the Blackmoor supplement (1975), where they were described as a “race of Chaotic Clerical Philosphers,” resembling “Manta Rays (i.e. having a flat blanket-like form) with one in ten being a vampire equivalent.” Uh, OK?

Ixitxachitl illustration by Bill Willingham

The 1st edition Monster Manual (1977) credits Steve Marsh with “devising the creatures for undersea encounters which originally appeared in BLACKMOOR,” which suggests that he created the ixitxachitl. Not until Deities and Demigods (1980) do we learn that they “worship Demogorgon, a Demon Lord from the Abyss.” All of this information was compiled in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Cards (1982), which featured striking art by the great Bill Willingham.

Although the ixitxachitl were included in the first volume of the 2nd edition Monstrous Compendium (1989), they didn’t get much love in that edition and were excluded from the 3e Monster Manual (2000) altogether, having to wait until the Monster Manual II (2002) for their 3e treatment. Many entries in the MMII had been slated to be added to the System Reference Document, but changing priorities within Wizards of the Coast evidently killed that initiative and the ixitxachitl remain closed content with no real open content alternative.

In some ways this seems a shame, as demon-worshiping sea monsters with access to cleric spells has a certain gonzo appeal. But in other ways this doesn’t seem like that great a loss. Frankly, as purely aquatic monsters without hands or even limbs the ixitxachitl were as difficult to use in play as their name was to pronounce. And their association with Demogorgon always seemed a little odd thematically. While the 1e Monster Manual notes that the Prince of Demon’s “appearance testifies to his command of cold-blooded things such as serpents, reptiles, and octopi,” this doesn’t quite fit with ixitxachitl and their rather boring appearance. “Evil manta rays” doesn’t exactly elicit a lot of fear in many players. One can always shrug and say “chaos gonna chaos,” but that’s not particularly satisfying.

A couple of years ago, though, I was wandering in the National Gallery of Art when I came across a series of small bronzes sculpted by Severo Calzetta da Ravenna, who worked in the early 16th century. Evidently Severo had a taste for the fantastic and sculpted all sorts of monstrosities. I was particularly struck by his grotesque sea monsters and immediately thought that they might make a good open content substitute for ixitxachitl. A fresh approach would also offer a chance to strengthen some of the weaker elements of the original concept.

Dagon was an ancient Mesopotamian and Canaanite deity that has long been associated, potentially by mistake, with a pagan fish-god cult. H.P. Lovecraft then used the name for his Cthulhu Mythos, in which the Deep Ones revere the entities Father Dagon and Mother Hydra.

Dagon is also listed as a demon prince in the 1e Monster Manual II (1983), which gives a tantalizing glimpse of his home layer in the Abyss: a “liquid plane” populated by “hezrou (type II) and a form of dretch, but the other inhabitants are octopi, squids, kraken, sea snakes, eels, weird fish, and horrible fish-monsters.” But Gygax left TSR before he could do anything more with this demon prince.

In the 3e era Erik Mona included an open version of Dagon for his third party Armies of the Abyss supplement (2002); Dagon was also incorporated into Pathfinder in the Second Darkness adventure “Descent into Midnight” (2009). Mona included a closed (but broadly compatible version) of Dagon in the Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss (2006). James Jacobs then greatly expanded this information in his article “Demonomicon of Iggwilv: Dagon” from Dragon 249 (2006).

So by combining Severo’s sea monster with Dagon we end up with a more monstrous monster that is open content and has nice hooks to Lovecraft, D&D lore, and Pathfinder. Not a bad deal. Using the name “Dagonite” is also meant as an homage to the renowned J. Eric Holmes, who compiled the first D&D basic set in 1977. Holmes used the term Dagonite for his own version of Deep Ones.

To commemorate this new monster, I commissioned this piece of art from one of my old players, who was always a fun and imaginative guy to DM.

Below is a 3.5e entry for dagonites, I’ll follow up with 0e and 5e versions in a future post.

Awful Presence (Su) Every nonevil creature within 30 feet of an Abyss-touched dagonite automatically takes a -1 penalty on all attack rolls, checks, and saves. Awful presence is a mind-affecting fear effect.

Flesh-Wasting Bite (Su) Fortitude DC 12 save resists.

Negative Energy Immunity (Su) Abyss-touched dagonites are immune to energy drain, ability damage and ability drain due to negative energy (such as the special attacks of undead), and hit point damage from negative energy.

Profane (Su) Each of an Abyss-touched dagonite’s melee attacks with a natural or manufactured weapon deals +1d6 points of extra damage to a creature of good alignment. All of its natural and manufactured weapons are treated as evil-aligned for overcoming damage reduction.

Protection from Good (Su) An Abyss-touched dagonite gains a +2 deflection bonus to AC and a +2 resistance bonus on saves against attacks by good creatures. Furthermore, it is immune to any attempt by a good creature to possess, charm, or influence it.

Unholy Body (Su) An Abyss-touched dagonite is healed by negative energy and harmed by positive energy like an undead creature. Thus, inflict light wounds would heal an Abyss-touched dagonite and cure light wounds would harm it.

Unholy Spellcasting (Su) An Abyss-touched dagonite’s effective caster level for necromancy spells or spells with the evil descriptor increases by +1. This benefit stacks with itself, so the Abyss-touched dagonite’s effective caster level for a spell that fits both parameters is higher by +2.

Dagonite leaders often command raiding bands in search of slaves, treasure, or fodder. The dagonite leader had the following ability scores before racial modifiers and Hit Dice ability score increases: Str 10, Dex 13, Con 14, Int 12, Wis 15, Cha 8.

Calculated Morale Bonuses

With a formula for calculating morale in hand, it’s fairly straightforward to determine morale bonuses for all the monsters in the 3.5e System Reference Document. Morale bonuses could also be assigned by DM fiat from -8 to +8 or so. But however they are generated, this morale system can be used in any other d20 system game, from 0e to 5e.

It’s important to emphasize that, like any mechanic, a morale system should only be used at the DM’s discretion. It’s simply a tool to help make a decision in the absence of better information. There’s no need to make a morale check for monsters with very high morale bonuses, or if the in-game situation doesn’t warrant one.
