View Full Version : [3.5]Need an adventure

2008-10-31, 08:54 AM
I'll be DMing tonight for a group of players that's completely new to DnD and I am in need of either a good premade low level adventure, or a compelling plot hook to use to create an adventure of my own. Players will likely bee cleric, tank, arcanist.

Look up the Wizards site (I'll try and dig out the link now) and check their free module downloads (http://wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/oa/20030530b). "A Dark and Stormy Knight (http://wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/oa/20050329a)" is a good first-level module.

I've checked out a dark and stormy knight and it is pretty much what I was looking for, but isn't the bugbear zombie a bit too much to handle for an unexperienced 1st level party?

I wouldn't think so, but if they don't really know their abilities then it might be. I ran the module for my players at second level so I bumped up the CRs for everything, which was fine, except that the next step up from a bugbear zombie is an ogre zombie. I can't imagine the bugbear is as bad for a first-level party as that ogre was for a second-level group. Stupid CR system.

I ran Dark and Stormy Knight for a party of 1st level characters who'd never played the game before, were using straight core classes and didn't really optimize much. I'd say it's a tough fight, but doable; my party happened to have a grease spell, which made things actually fairly easy.
