    It isn't "a Tarrasque" it's "the Tarrasque."

    It was an unique monster.

    Actually, I haven't played it! I'm assuming something similar happens? My main idea for an Illithid raid was a mother brain and a Brainstealer Dragon working together controlling an army of Illithids...but, now that I see how many end game raids will have dragons........

    Technically, that isn't true, because we simply don't know. There has never been any explanation, just rumors and stories that contradict each other. Neither TSR nor WotC ever explained where they came from, we just have lore handed down from elders in the different settings. Tarrasques are found in every game setting, and there is also this tidbit, a possible explination from the Spelljammer series:

    "Several hundred tarrasques live there in a docile state, where they are silicavores (rock eaters); upon removal from their homeworld their temperament changes to the violent, rapacious one better known elsewhere in the Dungeons & Dragons universe."

    Sure, assuming it's profitable enough.

    Off topic: I wish it were possible to recreate some of the "Tarrasque in the Pantry"-type adventures from GenCon UK, where 2 parties would each get a bag of gold, a background story (with premade characters) and setting (one was basically an egyptian pyramid for instance), and a list of monsters, traps, spells etc they could buy to defend their location with. After 2 hours, the parties would switch, and try to defeat whatever horrors the other party had come up with. One of the "egyptian" parties used most of their money on a rolling boulder trap a la Indiana Jones -and an Animated Object boulder.
    And yes, the Tarrasque was on the list, priced 1 gp more than the party actually had.

    They were awesome to play and to GM

    Default D&D has always been about dreaming. Let's dream big Turbine!

    I have been asking for campaigns with dragons that culminate with an encounter with Tiamat. It would be great if they would do this, but, we'll have to see.

    I would also like to see a high level campaign that incorporates the nine layers of Hell, with adventures that bring the various dukes, duchesses and archdevils to the fore, allowing us players to combat the likes of Belial, Geryon and Asmodeus.

    Down the road, how about a campaign that starts in the Astral Plane, with Githyanki, Githzerai and a host of other planar monsters, and which opens the door to other planes. A mid level campaign would be a great way to start in the Astral plane, fisnishing with options at epic levels in the nine hells and the abyss. Utltimately, would it not be great to see Balor demons and demon lords such as Demogorgon, Orcus and Yeenoghu.

    Any self-respecting adventurer who dreams about ascending to the rank of demi-god, ought to at least be able to boast about taking down Tiamat, orcus and Asmodeus on his or her resume.

    Technically those are not Tarrasques they are Lithovores as explained in the Rules of Cool.

    Rule of Cool: This trumps science every time. Though consistency beats it.? Say What? There IS a planet full of giant lizards which are treated as the Tarrasque. EVERY. ONE. OF. THEM. And did I mention said planet is full of them?? The good news is that they're completely docile lithovores... as long as they stay on that planet. It's suggested that the more familiar versions of the Tarrasque are what happen when they're relocated to other worlds, with atmospheres that don't keep them from going homicidally insane.

    I challenge you to find 1 single official TRS or WOTC publication that does not use "The" Tarrasque.

    Go talk to the people on the platform high above the market place, there are dragons in the chronoscope raid.

    Hint. Cydonie & Velah.

    Thanks, that was very informative and lets me know just how long I've been out of the D&D loop.

    My only knowledge of the Tarrasque was from the Monster Manual II, which I haven't had for many a year now. I'm pretty sure it was listed there as an unique monster, so that's why I thought that.

    I'm still voting for Flail Snails.

    Thunderholme acts as a bit of a prequel to the storyline the OP quoted, and establishes changes in the Cult of the Dragon.
