The designs of Tyrant Ships are as different from each other as one beholder is from another. Some may appear wrinkled like a walnut, as huge disembodied eyeballs, a series of globes supported by tentacles, or even just as a massive beholder. The crew of a Tyrant Ship always includes at least one hive mother and one orbus, without whom the ship would not function, though a number of regular beholders and additional orbi are usually present as well.

Special Weaponry[edit]

While beholder ships may lack conventional weaponry, this does not make them any less dangerous. This apparent shortcoming is more than made up for by what the ship does have: lots of beholders in one place. While on board a Tyrant Ship, a circuit of beholders consisting of a hive queen, orbus, and a common beholder may each use their action to create a beam of energy 1,000 ft long and 50 ft wide. This beam mimics any of a beholder's normal eye beams and affects all within the space of the beam.
