Cool, but I think you meant to post to c.s.i.p.g.action ;-)
Now, to make this related to our favorite game:
D&D is famous for taking pop-culture monsters, filing off the serial
numbers and slipping them into the game. The most obvious are Flesh
Golems (Frankenstein's monster), and the Tarasque (Godzilla), although
if you thumb through the various monster manuals it isn't too hard to
find others (especially the Spelljammer compendiums).
So my question is: did TSR (because, let's face it, it was mostly "we
can steal from anyone else byt don't steal from us - T$R that did
this) ever create a Sonic the Hedgehog style monster? A superfast
anthropomorphic animal, possibly with spikes (quicklings don't count,
they preceded Sonic and aren't spiky to boot)?
