If you're looking to make 1st level a bit less deadly, without having a huge impact as things move forward, you can try a few things. First, drop the number of enemies they're facing. That'll make the encounters easier up front without completely changing the adventure. Just because the encounter says '1d6 kobolds' doesn't mean you have to roll a d6 and ...

In Shadows of Gallowspire, part 6 of the Pathfinder adventure path Carrion Crown, there appears a vampire human antipaladin 17, making it CR 19. Several other mid-level vampires are listed on the Web page Unique Monsters if high-powered minions are needed.

Aside from the 3.5 Monster Manual's sample Elite Vampire (CR 15), the highest CR pre-generated vampire I could find for 3.5 is Expedition to Castle Ravenloft's Count Strahd Von Zarovich which is also CR 15. Despite him having the same CR as the one to which you are referring from Heart of Nightfang Spire, Strahd has the benefit of being balanced specifically ...

I'm currently playing the module with 3 groups, one of which I'm DMing. the group I'm DMing is level 3 SO it's been a cakewalk for them. In the two other games I'm playing I am making frequent use of my medkits and medicine skill to keep the party alive. Remind your players to help each other, and also rmembrr as DM that there are no negative hit points. ...

Having been running the Encounters version... You need a Cleric or a Paladin in the party. Bards simply don't have the ability to magically heal, and that is what's needed. Potions don't make up for the lack of magical healing. 0HP does not equal dead. If you're not running Adventurer's League play, then you can let them level up once they get 300 XP... ...

SlyFlourish, producer of several books and tips for DM, noted that at level 1 it was a deadly grind. It might be intentional but I didn't like it that way so I've up-leveled or made them level 2 very quickly. It was a grind at level 2 but a GOOD grind. At level 1 it's deadly. Twitter Source With that in mind, consider leveling them up right away, ...

There is no release date at this time, but multiple tweets and blog comments from the Trapdoor Technologies team indicate that DungeonScape will include the starter set adventure for free as part of the app. Essentially, basic D&D + Starter set will be free in the app. Again, it is unknown exactly when this will be available (I'll update this ...

Paizo recently put out a large module called The Dragon's Demand, a level 1-6 jumbo module set in Taldor that features a major dragon antagonist, if you want a full adventure. It's hard to beat Dragons Unleashed for a bunch of fully realized antagonists though, as @Ozymandias points out.

You might like to investigate Pathfinder's Dragons Unleashed. It features a selection of 15 dragons of various challenge ratings, their lairs, personality, history, motivations, goals, and so on.

The majority of D&D adventures pack in a fair bit of combat, but some can be converted to a less combat oriented scenario. The key is to find adventures that have significant non-combat meat to them, such as investigation. You can then strip out all the "filler" encounters, those that are either gratuitous or which don't have anything to do with the ...

My own Scourge of the Demon Wolf. It has combat but the meat of the adventure is trying to deal with the factions of the village and unraveling the mystery. Most of my playtest were done with four hour convention slots there was never more than six players. The smallest amount I ran with was two players. I use bog standard d&d tropes including a ...
