The Beholder... one of the most iconic monsters found in AD&D lore. I was fascinated by its appearance, its powers, its entry in the Monster Manual. We were playing AD&D for several years, and I think we met a beholder ONCE in our sessions, it massacred half the group and the rest fleed; our DM was strict and harsh, never allowing us an easy victory against such a tremendous foe.
