The Dread Gazebo Mimic D&D Game Piece


This is a 3D printed The Dread Gazebo D&D Game Piece.

He's about 4 inches wide, 4 inches long, and about 1.5 inches tall. He looks great in white, but would look epic painted to suit your game. I’m including an “unDread” option that is a plain matching gazebo to swap out for the surprise factor during play. Select “Both” option to get the set.

This is an object of legend stemming back to the 70's D&D culture that is not to be trifled with. It is immune to a +3 arrow. I'll admit, I played my fair share back in the day, don't judge. Curious? Google "the dread gazebo" for the story.

This is sure to get a chuckle out of anyone "in the know" when it comes to D&D.

Construct: Immune to mind-influencing effects, poison, disease, and similar effects. Not subject to critical hits, subdual damage, ability damage, energy drain, or death from massive damage.

Alignmentless (Ex): The Dread Gazebo cannot be detected nor affected by alignment-specific effects and spells, even though it is of evil alignment.

Hardness (Ex): The Dread Gazebo retains the hardness of the wood it was constructed of. This grants it a hardness of 5, which reduces all damage dealt to the Dread Gazebo by 5 points, no matter the source.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the Dread Gazebo must hit with its bite attack. If it gets a hold, it automatically deals bite damage and can attempt to swallow the foe.

Leap Attack (Ex): The Dread Gazebo can leap up to 90 feet in a single jump to catch opponents unaware. It can attack with its bite attack the same round that it leaps.

Swallow Whole (Ex): The Dread Gazebo can swallow a grabbed opponent of Large or smaller size by making a successful grapple check. Once inside, the opponent takes full bite damage each round as the Gazebo crushes it. A swallowed creature can climb out of the Gazebo with a successful grapple check. The Gazebo can hold two Large, four Small, eight Tiny, sixteen Diminutive, or thirty-two Fine or smaller opponents.

This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machines to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine.

Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. All of my items I list I personally test to ensure they meet my stringent standards. All items are printed in PLA, an organic non-toxic plastic made from corn and is biodegradable, yet very strong. PLA will not degrade under normal use, but will break down when buried.

If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!

Shipping from United States

I will ship as soon as your item is ready, in most cases within a couple days. If I'm backed up, I will let you know sooner rather than later. As soon as I ship, I'll provide you a tracking number. For the holidays, here's the deadlines from the USPS:

For Priority Mail Express® shipments mailed December 23 through December 25, the money-back guarantee applies only if the shipment was not delivered, or delivery was not attempted, within two (2) business days.

It will take me at least the minimum number of days (i.e. if the item says 5-7 days, 5 is the minimum it will take me to make it and ship it) to make the item and get it in the mail, so please add that to the USPS deadlines to ensure delivery before Christmas.

Etsy shows the text "VAT included (where applicable)" under the price of all items that ship to the EU. That is a general blanket statement which only applies to EU sellers who are VAT registered. I live in the USA, I am not VAT registered, no VAT is included in the price for any of my listings. VAT/customs/duty charged by your country are the "BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY*. You will have to pay VAT and additional charges upon receipt of your purchase. Items returned for non-payment of VAT or customs will not be refunded shipping and will be subject to a 25% restocking fee.

Ship items back to me within: 30 days of delivery

I don't accept exchanges or cancellations

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Returns and exchange details

All items are sold as-is and are made on-demand, so I don't accept exchanges. Requests for return/refund of an item sold in a color other than what is pictured (i.e. listing is silver, and you order it in purple) will be subject to a 25% restocking fee.

I accept returns within 30 days of delivery, all that I ask is that you pay the return postage.

If an item is damaged in shipping, please take a picture and contact me via conversation. If it can be repaired I'll ask you to ship it back to me and I'll fix it. I buy insurance for items over $50, so if it is damaged I will need the following to make the claim:
1.) Picture of the item
2.) Picture of the packaging
3.) You will need to verify the claim when I send you the link
Note: without the 3 items above I will not send a replacement or issue a refund.

Requests for cancellations made after I have already started working on an item will not be honored.


A quick note on turn-around times - If you see "QTY 10" for a given item, that doesn't mean I have 10 made and they will ship instantly. It means I can make 10 of them inside of the advertised delivery date listed. If you ask me for an estimated shipping date and wait 5 days to actually buy the item, the ship date will slip to reflect the delay in purchase.

I opened the package in front of my DnD playing kids and they went nuts. They love it! I got both so my teen son can use it during his DM duties. Bought the white and the details pop. We’ll be storing it in the wrapping though b/c it feels like the legs could be fragile. Shipping was fast too.

Very nice, good looking, and fun. Fits on a 4x4 base if you need this for dungeons and dragons. Was a little disappointed in the scale. Too small for a DnD gazebo, but still a fun monster to use in the game. I have a painted/modeled pic. Would like to post it if I can figure out how.

It broke very quickly after getting it out of the box.

A great little mimic! Was a little smaller than I wanted but that's on me. His name is Zebo and he like to eat elders. He is also the guard dog to a monk.
