While I was still working in Los Angles I worked on some concept designs for a fantasy epic starring Rob Schneider. Needless to say the project has yet to go anywhere after many years and I am still haunted by the giant wormy snake dragon monsters I designed for it. I exercised some of those ghost in the Crypt Worm I designed for Dreamblade. I think I may have gotten some more out with this Purple Worm. The biggest two problems with a worm monster is that a worm in and of themselves are not very threatening and there are the brilliant Dune sand worms that you are trying to avoid coping. I feel my take on this has become more of a Purple Wyrm, given his little slashing arms and more interesting mouth, tongue, head area. Since I am doing these for myself I can get away with those kind of changes. It is still a giant horror from deep beneath the earth that can devour a player whole!
