The Misfit Maggot Five


Warchief Grog Bloodloaf has sounded the horn of war. Elf scum have stolen orc lands and the tasty halfling herds. For generations the Maggotsmasher Clan has watched and waited from the icy caves of the frozen mountains but that wait is over. Warchief Bloodloaf needs only the totem of leadership, the Dragon Crown of Durge Maggotsmasher, to unite the clans and begin his war. Five misfits have answered the call to brave the Caves of Throllorat and return with the crown. With a little luck, these five maggots will kill a few of the beasts within Throllorat before dying, making it easier for real warriors to complete the quest.

The Misfit Maggot Five is a comdedic adventure where five rejects from the Maggotsmasher Clan are called upon to retrieve the famed Dragon Crown of Durge Maggotsmasher from the dreaded caves of Throllorat.  Each of the characters are fully developed with their own unique personality that will give any Dungeons and Dragons group hours of laughs! 

The Misfit Maggot Five is a 5th edition comedy adventure for 2nd level monstrous humanoid characters.

How would you modify this for 3-4 players? Is there a character that might be less important? I think one of my players could play 2 PC if he had to, but not the others.

You could do without the Kobold as his character mostly flutters about in a daze! lol You could also just have someone play an extra character or have the DM run the Kobold.

I would either have the players use 2 characters each or have them start a level or two up and give them some potions of healing. The adventure comes with pregens in the back that you can modify.

Thank you so much for replaying so fast , i will give them a 2-3 lvl characters instead of starting at lvl 1 and i will give them healing potions as well, i dont want to complicate it and give them 2 characters each, it will feel like a video game , thanks again i will donate when i can :D

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
