March of the Modrons – Part II

Welcome back to Initiative or What’s 4e DnD take on those planar OCD monkeys – The Modrons.

In this installment, we take a look at a couple more Base Modrons: The Tridrones and the Quadrones.


Appearing as three-sided pyramids on legs, Tridrones are the sentries and guardians of the Greater Modron Hierarchy. Tridrone Sentry Units are often found in the service of Pentadrones acting as guards. Like other Base Modrons, a Tridrone Sentry Unit obeys its superior modron commander without question. If for some reason a Tridrone Sentry Unit cannot perform its task, it is capable of coming up with a multiple alternative task that can help it complete its original task.

DM Note: Tridrone Sentry Units are designed to be used as Minions of the more powerful Modrons.


Appearing as three-sided pyramids on legs, Tridrones are the sentries and guardians of the Greater Modron Hierarchy. While Tridrone Guardians are often found in the service of Pentadrones and higher level Modrons, a Tridrone Guardian is also capable of leading at least 144 lesser modrons (12 Duodrones and 132 Monodrones) into battle. Like other Base Modrons, a Tridrone Guardian obeys its superior Modron commander without question. If for some reason a Tridrone Guardian cannot perform its task, it is capable of coming up with at multiple alternative task that can help it complete its original task.


Whether equipped with extra arms or bat-like wings, Quadrones are adaptable and dangerous opponents on the battlefield. Quadrone Archery Units are the primary ranged artillery used by the Greater Modron Hierarchy. Being fairly sophisticated, Quadrone Archery Units can act on their own and adapt to changing situations easily and efficiently. Like other Base Modrons, a Quadrone Archery Unit obeys its superior modron commander without question.

Whether equipped with extra arms or bat-like wings, Quadrones are adaptable and dangerous opponents on the battlefield. Quadrone Snipers are powerful airborne artillery used by the Greater Modron Hierarchy. Being fairly sophisticated, Quadrone Snipers are often given command of units that perform especially dangerous missions. Like other Base Modrons, a Quadrone Sniper obeys its superior Modron commander without question.

There are plenty more Modrons in our parade. For the next installment, I’ll be taking a look at more Quadrones (the ground-based ones) and the strangely shaped Pentadrones.

Until next time…

Game excellently with one another.

    Thank you, again! I've got these written so they'll post every other day. Look for part three on 2/17, part four on 2/19, etc. Should be about 8 posts in all when it's done.

    Whoops, I left a comment on part 1 and didn't realize you had part 2 already.Very nice! Forget my advice on making the ranks unique, you are already doing that nicely. Can't wait to see the rest!
