D&D Basic - NPC Gallery: Thug

Thugs are one step up on the chain of low-lives for the common bandit. What they lack in finesse, they make up in brawn.

Any character who's made an enemy of some local personality, should probably watch their backs, especially in low lit alleys, in case a band of hired muscle should show up, just to teach someone to mind their own buisness.



D&D Basic - NPC Gallery: Halfling Bandit

Bandits come in all shapes and sizes, and don't let the small size fool you...



D&D Basic - NPC Gallery: Bandit

While monsters are the hallmark of any fantasy role playing game, in many instances other human (and demi-human) opponents may make up just as much the opposition to any player character. Especially in low fantasy settings, these might make up the bulk of any opposition the players face.

Bandits, simple thieves and ruffians, living at odds with the law are the simplest form of human adversery any adventurer might face. Poorly trained and equipped, they're mostly dangerous in great numbers.



Forge of Rogbrok - Paper minis




Two sheets of paper minis from the Forge of Rogbrok adventure, that can be printed and used if you want. Just print, cut, fold and supply your own bases!  Should cover all the keyed encounters.


Forge of Rogrbrok maps


Here are the complete maps for the Forge of Rogbrok adventure collected on one printable sheet. In case anyone is wondering, from the top you have the side view, level 1, level 2 and level 3 respectively.

D&D Basic Adventure (1st level): The Forge of Rogbrok


This is a small adventure for 1st-level characters, created entirely using the D&D Basic Rules. It should give a group of four 1st level characters enough experience points to advance to second level. By adding or removing a few monsters, it could probably be a good challenge for more or fewer characters.

Should you need, you can use the pre-generated characters found here.

D&D Basic Monsters: Giant Boar


Another gigantic version of a real animal, the Giant Boar has deep roots in mythology. For instance, one of the twelve labours of Hercules was to subdue and bring back the monstrous Erythmanian Boar, a massive beast living on Mount Erythmanthos, who allegedly killed Adonis.

D&D Basic Monsters: Hippogriff


The hippogriff - possibly the lovechild of a griffon and a pegasus - is another of those hybrid monsters common in myth. The hippogriff has the head and front legs (and wings) of a bird (presumably and eagle) and the hind quarters from a horse.
