Side Project: Caves of Chaos + Fiend Folio

I had this thought the other day of switching out the monsters from Module B2: Keep on the Borderlands, namely the Caves of Chaos and replacing them with monsters only from the Fiend Folio.

Those of you in the audience can play along at home if you wish.

What areas would you replace with Fiend Folio monsters?


  1. A couple off the top of my head:

    Goblin areas - Xvarts
    Hobgoblin areas - Norkers

  2. Replace the Minotaur with a mad Githyanki.

    Leave the Orcs in, but have a bunch of them be victims of a Son of Kyuss. The remaining Orcs are trapped in barricaded rooms, unable to get past the Sons and running low on provisions.

    The Kobolds could be replaced by Flumph with bad attitudes.

  3. I would replace them all except the owlbear. I would give the owlbear laser beam eyes.

    Another idea is you could just use the random monster mutations from Jeff's Miscellaneum of Cinder on all of them.
