With a small patch on August 23, 2010 CipSoft changed the name of this many-eyed creature from the former Beholder to a new name Bonelord. The reason for this change is hinted in the newspost on tibia.com as an interference of some wizards of the coast of a remote kingdom full of dungeons and dragons. It is not officially confirmed, but very likely a copyright infringement claim by the company Wizards of the Coast, makers of Dungeons & Dragons, since they see the term Beholder as part of their product identity. https://tibia.fandom.com/wiki/Bonelord
We suspect Copyright.
Last but not least, we want to inform you about a strange event that happened recently. Some wizards of the coast of a remote kingdom full of dungeons and dragons suddenly appeared on the Tibian shores. For several hours, they were chanting enigmatic mantras resembling the mysterious beholder language and then they left as abruptly as they had come. And now the creatures that were once known as beholders have to roam the lands of Tibia under a different name... bonelords. But don't worry, even though every trace of their former name has been extinguished, they are still the dreadful beasts dear to all of us. So head out, Tibians, for a rendezvous with some evil bonelords.If you want to talk about the latest changes with other players, you can leave your comments in the thread Player Discussions: Content Fixes.
