Warlocks, paladins, and wizards all have a Monster That Is A Twisted Parody Of This One Class. Warlocks have deathlocks, paladins have death knights, wizards have liches, nothics, boneclaws, demiliches, and probably a couple more I’m forgetting because wizards just can’t get enough of that Forbidden Knowledge
These are really fun for RP - face a warlock against a deathlock and have them confront the terrifying relationship between a warlock and their patron, have a paladin struggling with their faith fight a death knight, have a wizard struggle with not relating to a nothic because wizards just can’t get enough of that Forbidden Knowledge - so fuck it. Why not have a Monster That Is A Twisted Parody Of This One Class with every class?
A monster that was Once A Druid that’s now apathetic and lazy, and doesn’t care about the balance of nature. Let the oceans boil, let the forests fall to rot, let the weak and frail die. All things die - all but me, says the Rotkeeper.
A monster that was Once A Barbarian who let the rage totally consume them, body and soul. They know nothing but rage and hunger, and let the poison of hate flow through their veins to the point that the blood of the Grendel is a deadly, fiery toxin
A monster that was Once A Rogue who stole the wrong artifact, or assassinated the wrong priest, or hid in the wrong shadows. So wrong that their greed, their cowardice, their ambition poisoned their soul and turned them into the Dragonsick, who rots metal, who turns invisible, who infects others with unattainable Want
And so on
