It has been quite an adventure. Not just because they are rare, but even when you find the lair of one of these creatures, likely, you will not find him. They may be transformed in a mist, flying over the clouds, in the Ethereal or Astral planes. If you thought Unicorns were difficult to sight, Ki-rins are probably 10 times as hard to get even a glimpse.&quot;</em></p> <p class="rteright"><em><strong>Abiphisus, Paladin</strong></em></p> <p align="center"><img src="/sites/turnwatcher.com/themes/turnwatcher/end_paragraph.php" alt="A small graphic marking the end of the paragraph" /></p><p><a href="https://www.turnwatcher.com/ki-rin" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://www.turnwatcher.com/ki-rin#comments Tue, 07 Jan 2020 06:10:57 +0000 Alexis Wilke 213 at https://www.turnwatcher.com Xanathar's Guide to Everything (Dungeons & Dragons) https://www.turnwatcher.com/xanathars-guide-to-everything <p>Most beholders are isolationists who hide in deep caves.</p> <p>Xanathar, however, is quite a special kind of beholder.
