Episode 1252: Twenty Thousand Legs Under the Sand

If you want to describe an alien or fantastic monster to a group of players, avoid saying anything like “it’s like a <real world animal>”. Because that just leads to an endless stream of questions and assumptions which might not line up with what the creature is really like.

Although on the other hand, if you say “it’s like a hamster” and it actually has razor sharp venomous claws and fangs, then that might be good for a few laughs.
