We’re supposed to investigate a dragon sighting in the copperneck mountains, but more frivolous adventurers the world as never seen. We’ve sidetracked at the first occasion, in this case after seeing some odd writings on the walls of a cave mentionning a « voice ». Or rather: The Voice.
Goal: Open all doors
Team: Brute (lvl 7), Elementalist (lvl 7), Soothsinger (lvl 7)
Set difficulty: 4
We start the scenario with our first encounter with drakes (of the rending variety) and oozes. The soothsinger immobilize the whole lot before the elementalist softens them up. I then finish the two leftmost drakes with a devastating swing of my battleaxe. The way is clear (mostly).
In the next room floats 4 living spirits with their annoying shields and all.
But they’re promptly zapped into oblivion by the elementalist.
3 more drakes. We manoeuver so that they’re bunched together and:
Boom! They’re disintegrated, just like that.
Things are so smooth & easy, we’re swaggering our way deeper into the echo chamber. We will pay the price for our overconfidence though…
Only one door to open to win the scenario, but at least one of us must survive the round and it now seems far from certain…
The elementalist goes down too but the soothsinger survives to win the day. With 1 hp!
- That was an incredibly close call!
- Upon verification, surviving the final round isn’t mandatory but that would have felt like cheating…
- The drakes are hard-hitting but not very durable, glass cannons essentially.
- I think this scenario should be fairly easy, with a sound plan, on most play
