Level 3 pregens from Campaign Coins (.zip PDFs) level 3 by Jackson Heenan: Dark Elf Monk, Derro Wizard, Human Necromancer, Goblin Rogue. AUTHOR’S NOTE: “This party was created for The First Bank of Drakkenhall, a heist adventure of stealth and skulduggery. As such, they are somewhat dodgy, shady characters that you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley in the City of Monsters. Also attached is a list of suggested magic items that would serve them in such endeavors. Also, the goblin and derro, being unofficial player races, have homebrew powers that probably aren’t perfectly balanced.”
