Luckily for me, grass type starters kinda tie into today's blog topic which is about which elemental or plant is my favorite. I've mentioned how I don't really like elementals as outsiders, and I don't really dig them that much in general. That leaves plants, and I really do have a favorite. I love me some Treants. I'm a huge Tolkien fan, and have always loved the Ents, and Treants really are just D&D Ents. They're also huge, cool, and really brutal to have to fight.
I love treants...
Here's the kicker with this though; I have never used a treant in a game that I have run. I've only encountered them a precious handful of times. In fact, treants and assassin vines are the only two plant types I've ever encountered in games, and I hate assassin vines because they always kill my character or nearly kill my character. The biggest run in I've had with a treant was with the undead lord cleric mentioned in my undead post. Benny, my juju zombie minion was constantly killed by a rogue treant every time we went near his woods. Said treant disliked poor Benny because he was an "abomination," and eventually ended up being the poor zombie's complete undoing after grinding him to an un-resurrectable pulp. And that is that.
Here's another treant for the road.
