I recently discovered a webcomic based on Castle Greyhawk, featuring some of the iconic OD&D characters such as Tenser, Mordenkainen, Yrag and others. If you’re a fan of old school D&D, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Aside from being an interesting take on the “old days,” it’s given me plenty of ideas for my own games.

I’ve worked up a PFBB monster conversion for hobgoblins and a hobgoblin boss. I’m not sure if I did the class conversions properly for the hobgoblin boss, but it looks pretty close to me, at least when compared to the orc boss from the GMG.
I equipped the hobgoblin boss with a whip, mainly due to art limitations. But I think it turns out to be a nasty weapon, allowing the hobgoblin boss to trip dangerous opponents, giving the rest of the gang a +4 bonus to attack the prone target. A great way to cut those plate-mailed tanks down to size. 🙂
On a side note, if you want some additional BB monster conversions, you can download a free PDF of Wayfinder #10 magazine from Paizo.com. It has conversions for two gnolls, and an otyugh.
