So one of my player's birthday is coming up soon and it so happens to fall on the day we usually do our sessions, I was planning on doing a one shot based around her Druid character and all my other players agreed so I have most of the encounters and extra little bits included, but I'm at a loss for what to throw at them as the big boss at the end as they cut through most of the monsters/ people I throw at them pretty well as a group.

The group consists of:

  • Half-orc Barbarian; Path of the Totem Warrior: Bear
  • Human Monk; Way of the Shadow
  • Halfling; Rouge: Swashbuckler
  • Tiefling; Warlock: Hexblade (Pact of the Blade)
  • Tabaxi; Druid; Circle of the Land (Forest)

As a note The One-shot is based on a coliseum battle arena, I'm allowing them to level up to 20 for it, so I really want them to have a fun time with the end boss but not kill it too quickly, they are regularly level 14.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Pandora, unfortunately SE isn't really suited for broad idea generation, which seems to be the goal of this question. I would recommend the chat room that KDodge linked you to. I think you 20 rep to post, so I've given you an upvote to get you 5 points closer. Alternately, you may wish to try a forum like GitP or another gaming site. If you've a more narrow question focused on whether a specific encounter is balanced for level 20 characters, we can probably better assist you there. \$\endgroup\$ – Pyrotechnical Jan 8 at 19:44
