You Can't Appreciate His Vision
Sclerex is a lesser beholder. This percieved inadequacy has led him to staggering lengths to prove his superiority. He shares his species’ intellect, as well as its capacity for cruelty.
Sometime in the past, Sclerex stumbled upon a tiny pocket dimension that he co-opted for his work. Inside, he has devised and built magical structures that optimize the innate properties of the plane. What he views as his masterpiece is a series of arcane engines that he claims will draw the magical energies from artifacts in the real world. What he intends to do with all that accumulated power is anyone’s guess.
