#dnd tip: DMs, occasionally add fantastical events or monsters to the background of a session. It keeps the players wondering and makes the game world come alive. Artist: Bjarke Pedersen In Everquest they called these guys “zone sweepers”. They were monsters way higher level than the rest of the zone around it and were there to keep players on their toes. Having a death knight wander through a forest on her nightmare just to freak out level 3 PCs is awesome. pic.twitter.com/Oo7tjki6eO

One of my fave moments from an AD&D game I ran – 1st level PCs hiding in the forest as a hill giant war band passed them by.
