I am still upset about how the final monster was defeated.  Are florists a broken and overly powerful Bard sub-class?

Ah, yes. If I recall rightly, a comment from a hardcore gamer on the live-action Dungeons and Dragons movie indicated that the beholder monsters are extremely intelligent and have a mind in each of those eye stalks capable of acting independently and firing off some very nasty spells, such that were one to pit two dragons against a beholder in an arena, the beholder would not only wipe out the two dragons, but also whichever half of the audience didn't manage to flee fast enough.

The gamer was complaining because the beholder in the live action film was a real pushover too (easily kept from noticing the heroes when one of them throws a rock to distract it).

I remember, back in my D&D days, the damn beholders were my BANE !!!  I HATED those things !!! They were responsible for more character deaths in our campaigns than any other creature we encountered.  So of course, our dungeon master went out of his way to have us constantly run into them everywhere we went !!!  Jerk !!!

Hmm, I have not yet included a Beholder in the list of opponents my group is to face. Perhaps I should rectify this.

But do you understand That none of this will matter Nothing can take your pain away

Beholders in Baldur's Gate were quite badass. I remember at one point you actually met one who was friendly and had a crappy job in the Underworld to watch some chests, and with some wits you managed to convince him to let you look at the treasure. It was hilarious.

Check my crappy and unpopular reviews and ratings:
