Little is known about these distant relatives of the Modron, except that they lair on the infinite but separate disks of Nirvana ruled not by Primus but by Ethriam, the dodecahedral god of order.

The sizes, shapes, and facet amounts vary on Polyhedroids in proportion to their size, power, prowess, and importance to their master. A lowly Tetrahedroid is a sub-servant, while Quasi-rhombicuboctahedroids with 440 facets might be first-class Liutenants serving close to the Inner Circle. It is left to any mathematically-inclined DM to design their own would-be geometric campaigns and classes!

Attacks, spell usage, and other special abilities vary wildly from one being to the next, but all Polyhedroids have an immunity to all mind-based attacks (SLEEP, CHARM, ILLUSION, etc.), and magical attacks of an elemental nature (FIRE, COLD, ELECTRICAL, etc.) cause half normal damage.
