Beyond the Crystal Cave Pre-Gens!

So the new season of D&D Encounters is almost upon us.

That said, this new season allows for new races and classes from the Heroes of the Feywild supplement. Hamadryads, Pixies, Satyrs, as well as a multitude of other options.

Here at Dungeons & Donuts, we'll be providing you with not just six, but nine new pre-generated characters to choose from. Some are from the new supplement, while others are classics from the first Players Handbook.

All of them have also been sorted by difficulty as well (Easy, Medium, Challenging). If you're new to the game, the Easy characters will be the most straightforward. However, if you're a D&D veteran, try the Medium and Challenging characters.

Also, they've been broken down by in-game location. Enjoy:

Heroes from Crystalbrook

All of these intrepid heroes hale from the small town of Crystalbrook. Located at the edge of an enormous forest, these heroes are no strangers to Fey creatures. These characters were made using Heroes of the Feywild and D&D Essentials.

Heroes from Sildaine Forest

These are heroes native to the Feywild. Their Fey Crossing home town is the border between the mortal realm and the Feywild, so their exotic races are experienced in dealing with mortals. These characters were made using Heroes of the Feywild.

Heroes from the city of Sybar

Bold adventurers from a bustling city, these outsiders have been hired by Count Varis. Additionally, all of these heroes are the famed members of Acquisitions Incorporated.* These characters were made using the Player's Handbook.

  1. The Shakespeare quotes are very nice.

  2. Very nice work, man.
    My only question: why didn't you use the same collor pattern of the official pregen for the power sources?
    Yellow » Divine
    Blue » Arcane
    Red » Martial
    Green » Primal

    Originally that was going to be the case, but I also wanted each background colour to compliment the character pic as well.

    1. how ddo you use a template of some kind or something?reate these pregens? o you c

  4. Actually, what I want to know is if you have a template for those character sheets. I've admired them ever since they first came out, but I don't know where to find that style of character sheet. Even a blank template of the first page that I filled in would be great.

  5. @Quirky

    I made the template myself in Photoshop. Unfortunately, I plan on keeping it to myself for the time being, as I like producing these pregens.

    Check out past posts to see an assortment of previous Pregens. I made a bunch for Lost Crown of Neverwinter, as well as an independent game.

    If you're looking to make your own, try emulating the pregen style in a photo-editing software. It's not too difficult.

  6. Fair enough. Thanks for the update. I've been looking over some of your past pregens as well and like those, too. Keep churning them out.

  7. Cool! But no pixies? Pixies to me are the defining feature of Heroes of the Feywild.

  8. So...where's Al? Last I heard, he got rescued from Hell, so he should be in there somewhere, right?
