I had this idea rattling around in my head: metal phoenix. I knew I had to get it out, so here it is. And once I started, I couldn’t stop there – I had to run through more elements.
There’s something really satisfying about taking a popular idea and twisting it. It doesn’t make sense to talk about non-fire phoenixes. On the other hand, I’m not the first person to do this.
I’ll be using one of these in a D&D campaign soon. Feel free to use them yourself. If you do, please drop me a line and tell me how it went.
