Horrors from Durlag’s Tower – Monster Variants

We don’t go to Durlag’s Tower.

 

Durlag’s Tower, an abandoned dungeon that sends shivers down the spines of many.  For some, it’s a cautionary tale about love, obsession and paranoia.  For others, it’s a giant grave that acts as a memento for dwarven kind.  For some, it’s the ultimate treasure trove that’s just waiting to be explored!  Eternally notorious for a variety of reasons, this accursed place rests a distance from both Beregost and Nashkel.  If traps aren’t the cause of death, the terrible monsters that lurk in the depths likely are.  Or worse yet?  It could the party’s very vices that lead to their own downfall.  Needless to say, the only people that would explore such dangerous ruins have a death wish.

Author’s Note: The Adventurer’s League has recently released an adventure inspired by the classic Durlag’s Tower dungeon from the Forgotten Realms… but more specifically, Baldur’s Gate.  So, I figure, what better time to revive some of the classic monsters from the original dungeon!  Granted, most of them were easy to build variants of classic/existing monsters already in 5E.  So, without further ado, enjoy!  Also, pardon this one being a bit sparse, I’ll post something for the weekend too, I promise!

Expedition to Barrier Peaks Creature Masterpost

EDIT 2019: Some of the math on these is wonky.  I’ll get around to fixing them, perhaps for an even larger science-fantasy masterpost or the like!  STAY TUNED!!

Here is a complete list of monsters and hazards from the module, in alphabetical order.  I figured this post would be useful, since I separated monsters into tons of categories to make conversion easier.  So, here’s a handy list of creatures from the module.  This post could be used in tandem with Part 5 for running the module in 5E!

NOTE: This does not include the optional new monsters I added to the adventure.  Those can be found here.  This is meant as an index for pre-existing monsters converted over.
