The Burnt World of Athas - 30 Days of Dark Sun 13: What is your favorite undead creature?

The 13th day of #30DaysofDarkSun is here and the question is "What is your favorite undead creature?".

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

I like the unique undead, which is apparently the norm in Athas. There was a dragon magazine article about how to make unique undead.

Dregoth. The only one :).

For me, it’s the Meority. They give some real texture to the idea of a lost time, stuck forever enforcing incomprehensible laws…

And they also go a pretty long way towards implying that the Green Age was no eden either. It’s a pretty twisted culture that creates an undead lawkeeper to enforce it’s no-littering rules …

I’m with Flip. The Meorty were really cool. I also dug the undead dwarves, as it was such a great reminder to dwarf PCs regarding their focus and what happens if they fail and aren’t on-focus!
