That also is good.  So, from one basic scenario, we now have 9 different ways in can be presented:

normal bear, magical bear, shapechanged bear.

kills everyone, just knights, just christians.

That's the spirit! ;)  Make this generic adventure your own adventure.

You forgot the giant chicken. It seems silly, but it is very Celtic. 

You know that the T-rex is very close to a giant chicken, don't you?

Seriously, for beginners, the Stag/Bear connection sounds celtic, not the giant chicken. But I am very interested in the celtic/giant chicken connexion.

LOL! I was going to dig out RQ stats for a deinonychus, but the T-Rex/Allosaur stats would work for a dragon! It would proba by eat a couple of new PKs though.

Okay, no chicken. Maybe an Aurochs?

Well there are a couple of Celtic birds that cause trouble. Some came out of a cave, and others were a type of griffin that obeyed commands, literary. But a I think a griffin is a bit much for begging knights.

That may be true, but it shows the scenario can also be scaled upwards in danger.  "Pah,  a bear?! We'll have steak for dinner," could easily be changed to the theme of "Sir Robin".

That's kinda true with most adventures. You just swap out the opposition, or apply modifiers to skill rolls. RQ3: Vikings really pioneered this with their Orm, adventure. A neighbor shows up claiming that a monster wiped out his stead. When the PC investigate the monster can be an Orm (Wyrm), Dragon, Draugr (big blue-black barrow dweller out on a rampage) or whatever.
