Ten minutes. Not much time.
Finally got back to our AD&D game yesterday after about a month's layoff. Still under the Dragon Teeth "mountains," my son's PC (a dwarven thief) was one-shot killed by a blind eel in an underwater lake (HD5, 3d6 damage...the thing won initiative and it was all over). This was the second PC of Diego's to be killed under the mountain (a wounded druid fell into a chasm...).
Being lost in the dark isn't really all that fun. But then, neither (really) is this adventure module. The kids asked if they could simply be "fast forwarded" to the druids...that's always a bad sign. It may be time to retire from this particular scenario and allow the Downs to struggle as they will.
I've got other fish I'm anxious to fry.
Okay, that's really all I've time for at the moment. Hopefully, I'll have something more interesting to post in the next day or two.
Hearing stuff like that from your players never feels good, but there's sure to be better games on the horizon.ReplyDelete
