30 Days of D&D Challenge Day 23 Least Favorite Monster
The Mummy is a classic horror monster. Yet he is my least used monster in D&D. I never find the Mummy to be particularly frightening in any way shape or form. He's a slow moving fellow that you simply, well, outrun-or outwalk. Now the recent Mummy movies starring Brendan Fraser were pretty good at making the Mummy a believable enemy but for the most part as a PC I simply can't find the idea of a group of mummys threatening.
Sure Mummy Rot is pretty lousy but, just don't get hit. Just, walk around the barely ambulating set-piece. I suppose the concept of the Mummy requires a location that allows him to tirelessly chase you down, with his near invulnerability to weapons. The idea of being chased by a creature that can not be hurt is pretty frightening but I find the Mummy in D&D terms to be severely underwhelming in this regard.
