I'm trying to design a group of encounters for a dungeon and I'm hitting a brick wall. I've drawn up an abandoned dwarven citadel that has fallen to the belief of Droskar. The leader is a warpriest10, and most of the followers are fighter3 or cleric3. I want to include a small subfaction that believes more in the toil of self perfection and are wizard/monks, or something similar. Is there any way to design a 5th level and/or 8th level wizard/monk that is not completely useless?
I was thinking of a CR 9 encounter that was a group of 5th level monk/wizards? on balance beams or some other favoring terrain.
Then a "mini-boss" that was 8th level and had 2 or 3 bodyguards or something. Maybe shadow mastiffs, hell hounds, or some other CR 4 creature.
Eh, something like that. I was super stoked to have a dwarven dungeon, especially since I have a bunch of dwarf models, but then I had a really stressful week at work and got burnt out.
The overall dungeon is for 7th level characters.
