Who could you see as BBEGs of CandyLand?

1 to 50 of 73 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>

So I got a thought in my head of a fun, stupid one shot campaign of higher level adventurers being Plane Shifted into "Candy Land," Demiplane of the evil wizard Twizzlor. They'd need to travel to the King of Candy Land's tower and take it back from Twizzlor.

Who would the other BBEGs be?

This is just for fun :D


The players will also have to defeat the sour machinations of Baron Von Lemondrop, and his chief enforcer, a hulking brute known only as "Jawbreaker".


Doctor Dastard Lee, Dentist at Large!

Don't forget Gloppy the Molasses Monster! Could use an advanced form of a Mud Man to represent him.

Also, take a look at the Candyland Wikipedia entry for more ideas.

Fine then, call it Candeelande :p

Think up original, fun characters for multiple BBEGs


Stay Puft Man.

Marsmallow Construct, FTW!

I'm probably never going to actually run it, but this is independend from the trademarked candyland. This is a twisted visage of poisonous candy, killer chocolate, and all sorts of messed up s*** that's created by the evil Twizzlor. This is meant to be a community thought project.


How about orange skinned derros for Oompa Loompa minions ?

What about the S'mores gang? Constructs of marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker?

Stay Puff, Choc', and Graham.

(I'm not good with names atm)


Too bad Wayfinder comes out only twice a year. If they ever decide to do the Planes something like this would be a really fun thing to include.

I was thinking orange skinned vegepygmies.

A free fan-made magazine that comes out every 6 months or so. Issue #5 will release at PaizoCon. Check it out: HERE!!!!!!!


I want a bad guy who smokes those chalkie candy cigarettes... and Bubble Gum fairies!!!


This sounds great. Consider making it something like a domain in Ravenloft so that you can twist the powers of the PCs and make them abide by strange properties of Candy Land.

I'm still relatively new to RPGs, only played for about 2 years, so I've never run/played Ravenloft so I have no idea what you're talking about.


How about Rock Candy Golems?

And the mysterious entity known only as "the Candy Man." He mixes it with love and makes the world taste good...

The smoker could be a gunslinger who fires like sno caps or milk duds or something

I see what you did there.

What about Reece, a beastmaster with 2 wolf companions, one made ofchocolate and one peanut butter?


Here are a couple of sites that sell those candies from our youth. Might give us some inspirations.

I like the idea of a marshmallow quicksand/tar like pit.

Betty the Beastly Baker : A baker that bakes bad little boy and girls and turns them into ginger-bread people.

Gromly the Gingerbread Giant : Betty's right hand gingerbread man, and muscle (think of the giant gingerbread man from Shrek).

So... does the spell Fireball automatically gain the "Atomic" template?

Well darn, I did a search for Marshmallow. :) He spelled it Marsmallow. :)

Nope, Atomic Fireball is a 6th level spell that actually catches you on fire, dealing the spell damage every round for 1 rd/2 caster levels unless you put it out

It should start you on fire from the inside out though.

SO it only targets 1 person?

Silver Crusade

BBECandyG ?

- M'ma Kindy.

This old grand-ma living in a wood house (because candy houses are a bit too cliché, my dear) bakes delicious colorful pastry in her cauldron and makes her visitors happy, until you notice there is a teeth in the cookie you just chew on, and it's not yours nor hers.

- The easter rabbit.

Poison expert, hiding poisoned eggs and candies everywhere in the world, toxins sometimes even put liquors as an undetectable liquid core. His brother is the Rabbit of Caerbannog. Nuf' said.

- The Couille de Mammouth.

This monster is a giant sugar ball, speaking slowly in a french-manniered style about the old times and about how the new candies are too soft and frail. Hard as a rock and prone to roll onto everything interrupting it during it's speech, it is said he has a soft heart under his mighty, impenetrable apparence. Now you'd better start digging, vital-strike-with-a-hammer style.
(Nota : The couille de mammouth (literally, "mammoth testicle") was a successful candy in France in the 90's, and consisted of a huge sugar crust hard as hell, which you had to lick through by several centimeters of multicolor layers to access the bubble-gum in the middle. This was so hard and harsh on the tongue that it needed days to eat, and few actually finished one.
P.S : Gosh, someone already proposed this, I didn't know it was called a "Mammouth Jawbreaker". x3)

Those are all awesome. Anthropomorphic animal cast on a bunny with Alchemist levels. Witch, obviously.

aaand....grappler? not sure. DR 15/Bludgeoning?

This will sound bizarre but that's ok since you are talking about a Candyland game...

A modron who has been trapped in the realm for so long that his once lawful nature has been completely corrupted and now is 100% chaotic. Have him have a different amount of dots painted on each of his sides. He shouldn't be a ruler or main bbeg, but more of an unknown variable.

Have him have 6 different emotions that you can randomly roll every time he interacts with the party.

Or better yet, give him a teleport spell that he can use at will to teleport players to various rooms in the "dungeon". You can separate the party with each getting sent to a different random room....

Has anybody converted the Modron from 1st ed? I'm sure I could work it in to the idea, but it won't be a dungeon, it's a demiplane


You need Candy Elementals:
Earth-Rock Candy
Air- Cotton Candy
Water- Soda
Fire- Um.... Um.....pass
Mud- Chocolate (Melted)
Lightning- Sour Candy
Ice- Popsicle
Magma-Errr......Same problem as Fire, Is there a spicy candy?

Refluff based on the existing stats from the bestiary.

I'm thinking I'll make rock candy golems and marshmallow golems from the rules in UM and the Bestiary. But you could use cinnamon flavored candies, like big red gum for fire golems, stuff like that. still inflicts burn.

Witch with Cook People hex.

Alchemist + bunny + poison crafting + Anthropomorphic Animal + ranks in cooking + lots of boosts + Invisibility.
I would say DR 15/adamantium, Thoughness, Improved natural armor, and stratospheric constitution actually if you want a monster. Or... make it a synthesist summonner, with said summonner at the core of the ball, with Trample and Overrun. ;p

Also :

- Milk Elementary.

Coming from the Demonic Cow, this Milk Elementary has the same powers as a water elementary, except that hitting it with fire makes it hot milk. Hot milk gains the Rusting capacity against chocolate weapons and armors, but gains vulnerability to cold.

- The Pure One.

It is said that the Great Candymaker tried day after day to craft the perfect jelly, which would be so perfect that no one could ever appreciate candies again after eating this one. Years passed, and one day, the Candymaker finally obtained a man-jelly so great the artisan decided it would never be eaten for the sake of pleasure. Trying to know what to do with this perfect candy, the Candymaker forgot his creation on an oven. The Pure One was quickly melted with his failed brothers. The Candymaker, now hit by despair and disgust, tasted the foul result before throwing the gelatinous mass in the trash. Deprived of it's father's love minutes after it's birth, and drowning in the failure of his desperate brothers and previous hideous attempts to bring it to life that were already filling the trash like an horrible mass of citrus flesh, the Pure One became madly evil. Escaping during the night, missing half it's head, this large and magnificent man silhouette with a deep cherry red color drags the still-living multicolor bodies of it's imperfect brothers as a burden.
It is said that the corrupted Pure One's taste was better than the Great Candymaker expected, and that by now, the old man never took any pleasure in eating candies, creating more and more horrible and sweet creatures that could sustain his hunger...

- The Sample.

This gelatinous blob seems to contain tens of adventurers, howling jelly bears, crocodiles and melting tagada strawberries suffering in an eternal demise. The Sample is the only prototype of the Pure One having survived the trash. In an attempt to become worthy enough of it's creator's love, he tries to absorb everything that comes in it's way in order to become the most exotic, diverse flavor having ever existed.

- Tooth fairy.

Too much sugar, too much falling teeths, too much work. Too much of everything made her crazy and poor. As a maniacal worker, she tries desperately to find money on everything and everyone to keep her reputation, using invisibility, flying and sneak attacks to extract your gold faster than you would have spent it in a diamond brothel made of Monica Belluccis. But if you lose a teeth, put it under your pillow, and you'll be in more ways than one richer than your friends tomorrow !

Liberty's Edge

I have thought about trying something similiar ever since reading the first volume of the series The Stuff of Legend. The protagonists venture into a town that it an amalgam of board games and the mayor has the rulebook. It's a pretty fantastic read but in regards to the topic at hand a BBEG could still be a rulemaster overlord type that could be entirely insane a la Willy Wonka.

Well the Evil Overlord is Twizzlor, the wizard who created Candeelande. He went mad after [insert event here] and created a demiplane filled with his twisted candy creations. He gave power to seldom few to create new horrible creatures that roam the candy mountains and fudge swamps while he is not in Candeelande.

Give him Prehensile Hair (from UM)!!! Describe it as his licorice self unraveling to grapple nearby opponents.


My mom is awesome: The guardians of Twizzlor's tower: Mike and Ike, jelly bean golems.


Tootsie... she rolls with "it."


The big question is what do you have to use for minis?

Time for the you-kill-it, you-eat-it rule!

"Who cares if it's ripping the cleric apart, I don't want to kill the licorice monster, those things taste NASTY..."


I've just got to say, great minds think alike. I was this close to sending a group of 5th level PCs to Candyland, once. I might still do it, in the future.
