Every Killer Adapted Into Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

edited February 19 in Creations

A while ago I started a project of adapting every killer in DBD into D&D 5e, and I have finally completed. I took creative liberties with some things, because some abilities don't really adapt directly into 5e, due to mechanics not shared by both of them. Some values were also adjusted to different numbers, cause while 1 minute in DBD is a relatively short time, 1 minute of combat in D&D is a very long time. Here y'all go: The Compendium of Killers:

I'll give y'all the PDF version as well, for those of you who would prefer to read it all that way instead of scrolling through a bunch of images on this post.

    Love this I've thought about doing something like this but never got the chance, I will say at times I was a little confused at some Killers did more damage then most 2d6 was the standard for most of them but some Killers when up to 3d6 or 4d6. Love to see more add as Killers continue to come out.

    Keeping up with my goal to put these out as the killer's release, here is the stat block for the singularity! (Although technically early since he hasn't officially released yet).

    If you're willing to man. I bought the DbD board game awhile back and have been painting all the minis. I have a chance to run a horror themed game soon and was like....wait a minute I have a ton of super dope DbD stuff ready lets just abuse that. Then I stumble across this and MAN you saved me SO MUCH TIME. Super appreciate your efforts here, and just wanted it in one place so I could print it out and source it at the table easily from a notebook.

    This is really cool stuff my dude!

    Extremely kind of you to knock that out for me. First session on Wednesday, and I set up a nemesis table to roll a d100 for the killer. They got The Knight right off the rip, so off to the Borgo!


    Thanks a ton!

    These look really awesome! And I have a campaign dedicated to fighting against killers.

    I do have a couple of questions, though, if you don't mind me asking.

    1: What Challenge Rating would you give the Killers? Judging some of these Killers, I don't think they would all be the same CR.

    2: Would being exposed be the same as being Vulnerable?

    Thanks again for taking the time to make these amazing statblocks! I can't wait to see how well they play in my campaign! :)

    So for question 1, I'm not going to lie, I kinda intentionally avoided giving specific CRs because I felt like I wasn't great at determining what a monster's CR should be. I can say that I kinda tried using the Death Knight, which is a CR 17 monster as a reference point in terms of monster HP, AC attack damage and the sort, . So if I were to estimate their CR, it would probably be in the 15 range or so, give or take a few levels? And yeah, probably not all of them would have the same CR.

    For question 2, yes, exposed would function the same as vulnerability, making the targeted creature take double damage under the circumstances described in the attack/ability.

    I noticed that some of the Killers don't have a grapple action and do not share the same immunities. Was this intentional?

    Some of the killers missing grapples was unintentional, thank you for pointing that out. But for the Knight's Guards and Victor, them not having grapples was on purpose.

    Not sharing the same immunities was also unintentional. After deciding I should start adding petrified and poisoned immunity, I never went back to add those to the older killers. All these killers should be immune to Frightened, Petrified, Paralyzed, Charmed and Unconscious. The poisoned differences were supposed to be intentional for killers like Chucky for example, since it doesn't make sense for a doll to be poisoned.

    At some point soon I will make sure to go through the killers and update the complied PDF to fix these inconsistencies, thank you for pointing them out.

    One other thing I noticed on the Killers is that some are able to do 2 actions for their Multiattack, and others can do 2 actions and 1 bonus action. There are also some that have the option to make 2 actions OR 1 action and 1 bonus action.

    Not complaining, of course, but I did notice that. Wasn't sure if it was intentional or not. These statblocks still look amazing and fun, and I really can't wait to see how mixing up the Perks can turn out!

    I had an idea for a number of the Killers, and also making Hex Perks into actual Hex Totems for encounters.

    I'd love to share them with you, if I may?

    No promises that I'll make adjustments to the stat blocks based on these ideas, but I'm certainly curious about what these ideas might be.

    I don't expect you to consider anything, and I will thank you just for letting me share my thoughts in the first place. You're free to accept or reject whatever you wish, as these are your statblocks. But here are a few ideas I had after looking over your statblocks:

    • If you make it optional to have all four Legion members in a single encounter, how about lowering their Maximum Hit Points? Maybe 50 - 75 each?
    • Hex Perks sound like a fun addition to encounters. I was thinking that maybe the Hex-related perks you have could be turned into literal hexes in-game. A Wisdom (Perception) Check would be required for a Player/Creature to be able to see them from a certain distance. Once spotted, the Player/Creature can spend an action to destroy the totem and remove the Hex from play.
    • The Skull Merchant looks like her old version before the rework. Perhaps this would be closer to her current function? — The Skull Merchant can deploy up to 6 Skull Drones at any time during an encounter. If a Player/Creature walks through a Skull Drone's Scan Zone at full speed, they must make a Stealth Check with disadvantage. If a Player/Creature walks through a Skull Drone's Scan Zone as if it were Difficult Terrain, they do not need to make a Stealth Check. If the roll made fails, then the Player/Creature is given 1 point in "Tracking Status." If a Player/Creature gains 3 points in Tracking Status, they are given a Claw Trap with the details you've written down already. Any time The Skull Merchant deploys a Skull Drone, she becomes undetectable by any means for the next 2 rounds. And, of course, The Skull Merchant is informed of which Drone gives a Player/Creature Tracking Status.

    gotta love how pain resonance is so insanely good.

    this is a tpk machine.

    I think most of the killers should have common as a language, but unable to speak. just understand it.

    Makes me wonder just which creature they're considering. I have my money on The Lich.

    It looked like a beholder in the trailer, I doubt that's what we're getting but it would be absolutely wild.

    These are quite interesting. While I think you overall nailed the aspects of the killers, I'm not sure how useful some of their abilities would be.

    A CR of 5 seems fitting. At 5th level PCs would have between 22 (wizard no con) and 45 (barbarian 3 con) Hit Points. It also makes it more tense if damage is high compared to Hit Points, discouraging PCs from just rushing the killer.

    I think a survivor class would help cleaning this up, where the subclass features reflects the typical playstyle's that people have (interacting, distracting, and protection), and you could be able to select a couple of skills, similarly to battle master maneuvers, that reflects different items and perks.

    From what I imagine, the laughing character at the end of the teaser is the Killer. The Beholder we saw lunging at the prison cell bars might be an in-map easter egg we can find if we look for it.

    Hello, all due to the fact that I am such a creative genius, I have totally managed to "make" a stat block for the new Killer coming to DBD, based solely off of what was shown during the livestream. I worked very hard on this completely original, totally not copy and pasted content, please do not steal.

    That was fast. This is actually really scary.

    I can't wait to see how The Lich will look as a Statblock! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! :D
