[osr Challenge] Redcap ideas

The Redcap prepares to kill some foolish humans.
For my the osr Challenge: A September of Short Adventures write-ups, I want to have at least one with an unusual monster foe.

So I looked at my game books and found something in Iridia issue 107. My friend Christian, over at Destination Unknown, wrote up the Red Cap in this issue so I translated this Fey creature into Labyrinth Lord.

Here's the sample stat-block!

Red Cap (small Fey); No. Encountered: 1d6+6; Alignment: Chaotic; Armor Class: 5; Hit Dice: 1d6+1, Hit Points: 7, 6, 6,  6, 5, 5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2; Attacks: short sword (1d6 + special), javelin (1d4 + special); Save: F1; morale: 8;  Special abilities: thief skills (including backstab), 60 feet darkvision, black venom poison (target must make save  v. poison or take 1d6 CON damage for two rounds).

  1. I remember those little guys. They were javelin chucking fools. The PCs retreated in terror as they made save after save. Good times...

  2. I wrote up some redcaps once for my blog, here. Totally different take on it. Interesting how people can put totally different twists on a traditional monster.
