Poll: Gargoyles, Stone, & Sunlight

Before I end Gargoyle Week proper, I’d like to do a quick poll.

How integral is the idea that gargoyles turn to stone during the day/in sunlight, and re-awaken at night?

  1. Super important, they wouldn’t be gargoyles otherwise! This also makes them a bad choice for a PC species.
  2. Very important, but they’d still make great Player Characters!
  3. Not that important, I’ve heard/imagined gargoyles differently. But I still think they should not be a PC species.
  4. Not that important, and I wanna be able to play as one!

In order for me to see the results of this poll (Tumblr really needs a Poll post option jfc), I ask that you answer as a Reply to this post (not a reblog or in the notes), or by heading over to my identical Twitter Poll. Thank you for your feedback!

Gargoyle Week

Artwork by Abrar Ajmal

This week is all about gargoyles! For the next week, I’ll do my best to find as much necromancy-related(ish) gargoyle content as I can (harder than I thought it was gonna be, but expected since they aren’t part of D&D PC tradition).

What is a Gargoyle?

I’m making a tabletop RPG, and I want to hear from you: What do you think a gargoyle is? What defines them as a species? What makes a gargoyle a gargoyle? What comes to mind when you think of them? What mythologies do inspire your interpretation of gargoyles?

Some clarifications I feel should be brought up based on previous Species Weeks:

  • The origin of Species Week
  • I’ll be saving my own thoughts on Gargoyles for the final days of Gargoyle Week. The point is to hear your feedback!
  • “They’re like [X other fantasy species] but [adjective]-er” is not helpful feedback. The comparison doesn’t mean anything to me unless you also explain what you think [X other fantasy species] is too!
  • My game focuses on the biological traits of a species when it comes to their stats – their physiology; like their size, diet, metabolism, appendages, senses, and other physical traits. Cultural ideas – like favorite pastimes, societal attitudes, alignment, personality traits – can be interesting, but are unhelpful in this context. This post elaborates on this more.
  • Even though Orc and Gnome weeks are long over, feel free to send me your thoughts on previous Species Weeks as well! I could always use more feedback!

Let’s call tomorrow night the end of Gargoyle Week.

I think I’ll save the next round of The Arena for Halloween week, so there will be a little something else in-between. Thank you all again for your input!
