Monster Makeover: Shademaw the Ancient Black Dragon

by Mike Shea on 22 April 2011

Yesterday Wizards of the Coast published my first of hopefully a series of Monster Makeover articles entitled Monster Makeover: Shademaw the Ancient Black Dragon. The intent of this article is to build up one of the dragons rebuilt in the most awesome Monster Vault up to the epic tier and describe the design considerations behind it. This was an awesome article to write and I'm very happy that Wizards chose to publish it. You can download the article for free (300k PDF) without a DDI subscription.

I have some other articles currently in the works to rebuild some other iconic monsters up to the epic tier. Keep an eye out!
