Energy drainers feed on raw electromagnetic energy which they can attract
towards themselves to absorb the power! They have five eyes, four of which
are mounted on telescopic stalks! Their six tentacled arms can absorb
energy or transmit it as a beam of intense light or electrical energy in
self-defense. Their origin is unknown.

Dragon
Dragon
The Dragons were possibly the first inhabitants of the Mystic Earth. Whether they stumbled upon this
world during timeless wanderings across the Astral Planes or whether they originated there is not
known. They are extremely long-lived, persisting for thousands of years, and have always been few
in number upon the Mystic Earth. They have extraordinary powers which they draw directly from
elemental forces such as the metallic elements gold, silver, copper, antimony, iron, mercury and
lead. They vary in temperament and purpose. Some resent the newer arrivals to the Mystic earth,
longing for a return to the old days when it belonged to the Dragons and their kin. Others protect
some of the ancient wonders and mysteries, including portals and the most marvelous mystical
artifacts.

Surothdrasil
A Lizardman (drawn from an old lead miniature). The Lizardmen are a genetically diverse
coalition of ancient reptilian races. A once great civilisation now decayed into barbarity and
dipossessed of a world that was once theirs, the lizardmen dwell in deep subterranean places.
They sometimes emerge to conduct raids on the newer warm-blooded races which now
occupy the surface and which the Lizardmen envy. This one appears to be a distant relative of
the Crocodylamorphs and is armed with a stone axe and flint dagger.
Surothdrasil is an ancient being from an even more ancient race.
Legend has it that Surothdrasil arrived on the Mystic Earth in a
large luminous egg which had drifted through the vastness of
space for countless ages. Seeking out a world with a deep ocean,
Surothdrasil dwelt in the deep Abyss of the Mystic Earth many
millennia ago, and some stay that he remains dormant to this day,
awaiting a time of awakening. Others say he eventually grew weary
of eternity and allowed himself to be resorbed by the Cosmic
Matrix. He grew to immense proportions, producing new heads by
means of a branching stolon.
Demon

The demon above is sketched from a lead miniature (Manufactured by Grenardier, 1984). I painted the original miniature in beautiful and otherworldly metallic blues and purples. This demon is clearly a relative or version of the AD&D portrayal of Demogorgon. The name 'Demogorgon' is thought by some to be a 4th century corruption of 'Demiurge': the hypothetical Creator of the Cosmos, or Supreme Architect. To some the Creator or Demiurge is the supreme divinity, to others (such as the Gnostics) a lesser being, sometimes viewed as with evil intent, or ignorant to higher powers and so considering itself the original and Supreme Being. Many considered the entrapment of sparks of the Divine Spirit (as the consciousness of living beings) to have been an accident or a malevolent intent, creation having gone wrong. Over time, Demogorgon thus became to be seen as master of the material and animal worlds and thus an enemy of the Divine and of the human spirit. In AD&D he is depicted as one of the chief Princes of Darkness, with two baboon heads, tentacle arms and a forked tail. The artist of this figurine gave each of the baboon heads a crest-like horn, added an extra pair of tentacles, gave each head two pairs of eyes and dispensed with the fork in the tail.
