Web of the Spider Queen Pre-generated Characters!

The new season of D&D Encounters is going down to the Underdark.

Here are six new per-generated characters for the upcoming season. Keeping in line with the theme of the adventure, all of them are Drow adventurers. Plus, the template has been redesigned for maximum ease of use and legibility. Credit for the template design goes to James Stowe, who's an amazing designer and has come up with a number of awesome pre-gen sheets for younger players.

 All of the drow art on the sheets is made by me, though was heavily influenced by Warcraft artist Genzoman. I used a fair amount of his poses and armour designs for inspiration.

As always, if you spot any math or spelling errors, let me know in comments. I'll re-upload corrected sheets asap.

  1. the drow pre=gens are reat but not legal for official encounter play, any chance of getting essentials versions of tthese character?

    1. If your DM cares about you only using "legal" Essentials characters, find a new DM.

    2. dont get me wrong ur pre-gens are incredible, the arts amazing and the chr sheet layout is refreshing.
      are you gunna keep to this stylt from now on?

    3. Thank you. I can't take credit for the layout. Check the link in the post to James Stowe.

      As for Essentials pregens, I might make some down the road. I'm not that big a fan of the "Essentials builds" due to the amount of additional stance, movement, and utility powers used. I find they complicate an already complicated system, and are an absolute bitch to parse out into stat blocks.

      We'll see, though. If a lot of DMs are serious about allowing only "legal" characters, I might try my hand at some.

  2. Do you have these pregens available as print quality pdfs?
