Giant Rat. Card Artwork. Monster Type: The TRUE Dungeon Rat.
This is from a series of card artwork I'm working on with a friend in getting his card party game off the ground. The game, Thy Dunjon Quest, is a party game utilizing elements of charades and blackjack for players to go one mock quests and encounters while gambling their gear based on success or failure.
When we say dungeon rats are huge, that was not an exaggeration. Behold! The Giant Rat! A rat so big, that cats surrender at the sight of it. A rat so huge, that its rat holes are confused for doorways. So gigantic, that you can replace one for your horse and none will be the wiser. Oh, and did I mention the nuclear breath?
The Giant Rat is a play on the conventional dungeon rat, as these over-sized versions of vermin are a staple of fantasy lore. Ours, is modeled after Godzilla.
