I’ve been wanting for a while to add in an unknown or strange type adversary into our Dungeons and Dragons campaign War of the Triplets. When we started a year ago, my players were for most part new to roleplaying games or they may have played a bit 25-30 years ago in school. So to make the game more approachable, I largely stuck with creatures they would recognise from books and movies such as goblins, undead, unicorns, etc. But this year I want to introduce new unfamiliar baddies and one such group is what I call “The Masquerade” which is…

I think this amazing Dragonkin is a good example of why I like Dragonkin from Darksword miniatures rather than for example from Reaper. I was originally thinking of painting his skin black or dark blue to really be a camouflaged Rougue, but then I thought it would be much cooler to make his skin brighter so I opted for a red dragon heritage. it also contrasts nicely with the dark cloak.

A friend of mine who tried Dungeons & Dragons as a kid, decided to join my campaign “War of the Triplets”. As the only player he was toying with the idea of a chaotic evil Drow.

This Wererat Rogue featured in Chapter 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign: War of the Triplets. I originally bought the human form thinking it was perfect for a sneaky assassin for the party’s very first combat. Later I realised there was a wererat form too so got that one and an easy encounter changed to a tough one, especially with a male and a female henchman joining too. The plan was actually to have the Wererat be the leader Oleg the Ugly and for him to escape… since werecreatures can only be harmed with magical weapons, which the party had…
