One of my favorite techniques for whipping up custom characters, beasties and objects is to build them from Lego. I keep an assortment of Lego mini-figure parts in my DM toolkit so that I can put together characters on the fly. I also have a bin of bricks near the gaming table for creating other impromptu elements.
|Bucket o' heads!|
Here are just a few of the many guest appearances Legos have made in my game:
|Lego treant is full of EVIL!|
|I hear their vision is based on movement. |
Maybe if we don't move, it wont eat us.
|When faced with a celestial giant bee, don't stab it... |
you'll just make it mad.
