Barney is a demon from the lower planes, a great purple and plush
deformed dinosaur. It is the enemy of intelligent lifeforms, eternally
seeking out small children and feeding on their natural intelligence
Combat: Barney will normally attack with it's two great paws, each
inflicting 1-20 points of damage. If a victim is struck with either
paw and fails a saving throw versus paralyzation, they are dragged to
Barney and may be hugged next round. A hug inflicts 3-30 points of
damage each round until the victim or Barney is killed.
Barney may also utter a 'Power word "I love you"' once every three
rounds. Any adults hearing the power word must save versus spells or
flee in terror for 1-6 rounds. Any child hearing the power word must
save versus spells or be controlled by Barney. He or she will
thereafter follow Barney's commands with a delightful smile, and is
subject to continued brainwashing. Each day that a child is in
Barney's control they may be taught another lesson by Barney,
decreasing their intelligence and wisdom by 1. When either stat
reaches zero, the child becomes a mindless Barney zombie! Barney
zombies follow his commands with love and a delightful smile, and
eagerly spend gold coins on Barney merchandise.
Barney is constantly surrounded by an aura of intolerable idiocy. Any
individual within 20' must save versus spells once per round or lose 1
point of intelligence. When intelligence reaches zero, the victim
falls to the ground in a quivering, gibbering wreck. Intelligence may
be regained at the rate of 1 point per day afterwards. In addition,
the aura tends to make spells go awry, tactics to fail, and mundane
items to become intelligent with their own insipid personalities.
Habitat/Society: Barney resides in a great temple and television
studio on the lowest plane of the Abyss, with areas extending into
every lower plane and prime material plane via transdimensional gates.
He is constantly surrounded there by 1-100 Barney zombies clutching
plush dolls and lollipops, which they may use as +2 maces in combat.
