Open Legend kobold character concept

Constructing A One Shot RPG Game For 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons

Last Friday night I was home alone and not a RPG game to be played in sight. My regular group wasn’t available yet I still wanted to drop some funny shaped dice. So what is a gamer to do? I’ll tell you what I did. I reached out to the online RPG game community and some of my fellow Nerdarchist via Facebook.

Kobolds even made it to my Top 10 Scariest Dungeons and Dragons Monsters blog post I did way back in March 2014.

Now on with it. How to properly employ these beasties. First and foremost don’t think you your novice adventuring party is going to clear out a whole tribe of these critters. This is the #1 mistake I’ve seen and made as a GM over the years. If you’ve planned an adventure around that you’ve already have begun on the wrong foot.

Monsters are not going to be just sitting around in a cave complex or dungeon in specific areas just waiting for you to come slaughter them and take their stuff. Continue reading Dungeons And Dragons Monsters- Beware There Be Kobolds With In
