Erol Otus is an American artist and game designer, known internationally for his contributions to the fantasy RPG genre, most notably for the early Dungeons & Dragons franchise. Called "legendary" by RPGnet [1], he is also known for his artwork on the multiple award winning[2] Star Control II as well as providing the voice for one of the character races, the Chmmr, in the same game.

Role-playing gamesEdit

Otus was a prolific contributor to the early Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) franchise, creating full covers as well as many interior illustrations for TSR materials.[4] For example, he created the cover for the first version of the D&D manual Deities and Demigods and illustrated the Cthulhu pantheon within.

Otus has also provided cover art and interior illustrations for Goodman Games, Oracle Games (in particular Alma Mater - The High School RPG) and the Arduin series.

Video gamesEdit

Otus has also provided illustrations, production design and voice overs for computer games such as Star Trek: Generations[5], Mail Order Monsters and Star Control II. Star Control II was named by IGN as the 17th best game of all time [6] and by Gamespot as one of the greatest games of all time.[7]

HomageEdit

In the Dungeons & Dragons adventure module "A4: In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords", part of the treasure on the slaver ships is a series of paintings by a supposedly famous Drow Artist named "Ool Eurts" (an anagram of Erol Otus).
