This Template Is Deprecated — USE {{Monster}} INSTEAD


{{Monster}} can now create Pet infoboxes (since all Pets are Monsters), it should be used instead of this template. Setting either of the pet-only parameters (|pet-levels= or |pet-feature=) will automatically create a Pet infobox, or you can add |pet=yes to do it explicitly. So, for example...
OLD:
{{Pet|image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}}
NEW:
{{Monster|image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |pet-levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}} or
{{Monster|pet=yes |image=pet.jpg |description=Beast |pet-levels=12-32 |totem=AGuild}}
See Template:Monster for full documentation.
This change will allow Pet articles to benefit from any improvements made to {{Monster}}.

The Dreaded Gazebo (Gazebo metuendaque "dreaded gazebo") is unassuming but deadly.

You've awakened the Gazebo...

The Dreaded Gazebo haunts gardens and other well pruned areas. It loves silently existing in beautiful gardens with fancy cobbled paths leading to it. Especially attracted to fruit trees, the Dreaded Gazebo will spend many hours sitting among blossoming flowers and fallen, rotting fruit. It doesn't do much else. After all, it is a Gazebo, Eric. However, due to immense misunderstanding (stupidity for heroes), the poor, inanimate Gazebo has taken on a much more sinister form.

The Dreaded Gazebo has risen to notorious prominence, with heroes believing that it is a merciless killer - if straying too close, the Gazebo will instantly devour the clueless. While this belief started out foolishly, it has become a deadly, near reality. The Gazebo is a terrifying, psychological construct; once, it was just a hapless Gazebo, and it still is a hapless Gazebo - but heroes don't know that! Anytime a hero draws near to a Dreaded Gazebo, their weapon will start to glow an eerie blue, the monster will grow teeth, and then ferocious battle will commence with the stationary structure. After time, the question is begged: is the Dreaded Gazebo pushing the lines of reality, slowly taking life to avenge it's helpless, wooden brothers?

While in actuality, based on extensive research, this creature is in reality very docile. Because it's a Gazebo, no matter what Eric first thought. It loves to sit in its own private garden, the most famous being so fabulous it was entered into mythology as Persephone's Garden. To protect this garden when the Dreaded Gazebo is not around, (which it always is because it's a Gazebo) the monster plants Jupiter Fly Traps, which are much larger than Venus Fly Traps, to eat unaware heroes. Or possibly just the owners do, to protect their gardens being trampled by heroes hellbent on "killing that vicious Gazebo over yonder". No I swear, it's alive!

Despite their inanimate properties, Dreaded Gazebos often get lonely and will try to kidnap a hero, because a Gazebo is not a Gazebo until someone is sitting in it, admiring the view. Heroes, thinking the Gazebo is a powerful monster, will often accept the strange offer, and attempt to ride them across Godville. Several skeletons have been found in Dreaded Gazebos because heroes have starved to death waiting for their pet to reach Herolympus. However, they never do. Why? Because... It's a Gazebo. This has probably accentuated the rumors and fear of Gazebo kind, when a fretful hero sees several skeletons sitting in a Dreaded Gazebo which never actually moved.

But the legacy never fades, and Dreaded Gazebos retain their horrifying reputations as devourers of herokind. Perhaps, someday, heroes and Gazebos can live in peace without the killing, kidnapping, and starving, but until that day... We blame you Eric.
