D&D 30 Day Challenege - Day 15: Favorite Monster (Undead)
I remember reading about them in the original Fiend Folio and thinking how cool they were. But, since I never DMed, and I never played to the level that they would be encountered, they just remained cool things to think about.
Then I read the Dragonlance Chronicles, and totally fell in love with the idea of Lord Soth. This love was cemented when I read Knight of the Black rose, wherein Soth goes to Ravenloft, and meets Strahd Van Zarovich. I geeked out when they came to blows and it was apparent they were equally matched. here was an undead that could equal the likes of Dracula!
I think I like the Death Knight the most because it's a thinking undead, and though they are usually inherently evil, they are often honorable. I kind of see them as a fighter version of a lich.
I even played one in World of Warcraft for a bit. That was pretty cool.
