D&D Encounters: Beyond the Crystal Cave – Pre-Generated Characters

by Ameron (Derek Myers) on November 23, 2011

For the past four seasons of D&D Encounters, Wizards of the Coast has provided us with the same six pre-generated characters. There’s nothing wrong with theses pre-gens but they’re getting a little bit too familar. Not only that, but they don’t feature any of the new optioins from Heroes of the Feywild.

Realizing that a lot of people are looking for new pre-gens, our friend Kiel Chenier took it upon himself create a slew of new characters for use with D&D Encounters: Beyond the Crystal Cave. He’s created nine new characters to choose from. The four pre-gens that highlight new classes and races from the Heroes of the Feywild are presented below. The rest of the new pre-gens are available on Kiel’s website Dungeons & Donuts.

During this season of D&D Encoutners all the PCs must choose a background establishing them from either Crystalbrook, Sildaine Forest or the city of Sybar. Each of the new pre-gens is from one of these locations. You’ll likely recognize the heroes from Sybar – three members of the famous adventuring company Acquisitions Incorporated.

Someone mentioned that I should have colour coordinated them by power source like previous WotC pregens. Looking back, I don’t know why I didn’t think of that.

I’m correcting them at the moment. The current sheets are fine. Future ones (with higher levels) will be properly colour coordinated.

@kiel chenier

Thank you so much for doing this, very helpful awesome!

What made you decide to “recruit” Acquisitions Incorporated? (I love those guys)

Would it be too greedy to ask about fey-wild theme cards?

@Crimson

WotC released about 4 or so Fey themes in their supplement “Heroes of the Feywild”. They range from somewhat interesting, to downright obtuse.

Overall though, rather than just add some additional flavour to a character, they imply a heavy career arc, with a bunch of additional mechanics and traits. Too complicated to just sum up on a card.

I say put down the $30-40 dollars for the book. I liked it a heck of a lot more than Heroes of Shadow.

You MADE these? Dang impressive! I’m definitely getting these printed and bringing them to the next DnD so my DM can offer them to people who need them. He’ll just LOVE ‘em!
