Heh. This whole post was entirely out of character for me. As a rule, I never do campy or meta-humor in my games. I've played in goofy games and loved them, but as a GM, I take my fantasy seriously. (Of course, plenty of humor arises from situations and interactions in the otherwise serious world.)

Even as I wrote this tongue-in-cheek post, though, I started mulling over the idea of a more serious version of a Spirit Guardian who, like an obsessive museum curator, wants to collect, classify, and preserve everything. Adventurers might not need to defeat the spirit itself, but just come up with a way to extract someone or something from its halls.
