  • Contents of the Red Box

    1 set Black Dice: d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 – The d10 has an actual 10 printed on it rather than a 0.  Which seems better for new players to me.

    4 Character Sheets – New layout.

    1 full page double sided flyer for other Essentials products – “For Players” one one side, “For DMs” on the other side.

    1 Quarter-sheet single-sided flyer – URL and code to download another adventure.

    1 double sided poster map – Side 1: Interior location, stone floors, looks like a bunch of dungeon tiles.  (Used for the adventure in the DM Book)  Side 2: Crossroads map reprint from D&D Minis on one half, Monster Lair reprint on the other half.  Nitpick – The side with the 2 maps folds inside, so to use just one of the maps you have to fold the map against the “natural fold”.

    1 page double-sided tokens – 12 PCs (bloodied on opposite); 5 Action Points; 36 1-inch Monster tokens; 3 2-inch Monster tokens.  Monster tokens have different creatures on both sides.
