These are the Black Sheep of Nirvana. The dirty little secret which may truly end up being the downfall of Ethriam. Irregular Polyhedroids, small roving M.C. Escher nightmares of wrongly-angled biological bastardization, are genetic miscreants destroyed on sight by their Regular brethren. They represent disorder, a laughable (by Primus!) blight on the would-be perfection of the disks of this otherwise orderly realm. Ethriam has yet to master a class structure for his Polyhedroids as mathematically preserved as those of the Modrons, and thus imperfections during cross-breeding happen once every so often. These imperfections roam the plane in search of their own obscured meaning.

All Irregulars have similar limited spell immunities as their upper-classmates: imperviousness to mind-based attacks (SLEEP, HOLD, etc.), and half-immunity to COLD, FIRE, and LIGHTNING. However, due to their structural fragility, they will shatter utterly when struck by blunt blows when a "to hit" of a natural 17 or higher is made (provided the number is high enough to hit its 0 AC).
