Gargoyle (Dungeons & Dragons)

Gargoyles as depicted in the Dungeons and Dragons Stormreach MMORPG

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the gargoyle is a grotesque winged monstrous humanoid creature, with a horned head and a stony hide.

A gargoyle is usually chaotic evil. A gargoyle has the ability to hold itself so still that it appears to be a statue.


The marine gargoyle is known as the kapoacinth.

The margoyle, or marlgoyle, is a more horrid form of gargoyle.
