CR18 paragon animal
I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail again and was inspired to write up this monster. The Holy Grail is a comedy film, however, so this creature probably shouldn’t be taken seriously. The Paragon template is from the Epic Level Handbook.

Keen, Vorpal Bite (Ex): The Holy Grail Rabbit’s bite attack naturally threatens a range of 15-20/x3. On a roll of a natural 20 it may decapitate any foe of up to three sizes larger than it (up to Large size). Even a standard critical hit is ususally sufficient to kill a weaker foe. The rabbit favours gory decapitation attacks, and has no compunctions against using them to defend itself.
* Power Critical, from Complete Warrior.
â€ Seriously, 950HP. That’s what the errata says. I think it’s a misprint.
Oh sweet—this is just the thing for my uppity 18th-level PCs
I think that I would rather take on a Great Gold Wyrm. And a Tarrasque. At the same time.
aiyiyi, you are giving my boyfriend odd ideas now …..
Hey, I found this site surfing. I just started running again after a 3 year suspension. Nice to see that there are still people out there who make the movies into tangible D&D stuff.
So, are you able to defeat it with the holy hand grenade of Antiocj or what?
This is awesome, I’m almost tempted to use it in my campaign. I think it should be defeated by the holy hand grenade.
Actually, I remember seeing an article (approx 25 yrs ago) in a magazine whereby Monty Python and The Holy Grail was a D&D module.
It begins with characters falling asleep in a tavern. King Arthur had a vorpal blade, and if they bang coconut halves together, players are able to travel 5x faster than on foot.
Too bad I lost the module.. Would love to find it again though.
