BEHOLDER (horror subclass)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The beholder is a creature that appears to be little more than
a giant, floating sphere with one massive eyeball, a huge
tooth-filled maw, and several smaller eyestalks sprouting off
the body. While physically very weak, their magical abilities
far surpass that of most ordinary creatures.

Having no legs, their only method of locomotion is a hovering
levitation that allows them to bypass ground-based obstacles.
A beholder's scale-like skin provides them with some defense
from physical attacks, but is far less protective than most
monster hides.

A beholder starts with few spells initially and gains more as
it grows new eyestalks. The new eyestalks, however, are very
sensitive to light and therefore eyestalk-gained spells are
much less powerful when the beholder is blind.

Finally, with multiple eyestalks, a beholder has the ability
to look in virtually all directions simultaneously and thus
has a heightened awareness of its surroundings.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Beholders have the following skills:

armour              toughness       intimidate       combat
magic               quickheal       weaponry         awareness
resistance
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Beholders have the following spells:                    
                                                        
reflection          warding         spellburn        glimmer 
multibeam           inferno

            
As a beholder grows in experience, it will also grow small eyestalks
that sprout from its body. With each eyestalk, the beholder will
gain a new spell. However, there is no way of telling ahead of time
which spell the beholder may gain.
