The Gauntlet (PDF)
by Marcel Fuhrmann Date Added: Sunday 27 October, 2013
Last night, we were playing that adventure and it was a great success! Everybody had much fun. The PCs power level was well adjusted to the opposing forces.

I ended up leaving the honor system completely out, just forgot about that(next time!). The party was well balanced and everybody was cautious and on his/her toes.
The reason for that was mainly because i was explaining before the start, how important it is in this game to state if the character has already drawn his weapon and ready for trouble or not.

At first they were cleaning out the dungeon without much complications and had very nice ideas how to solve problems. In the end however, we ended up with a TPK, because on their way back they discovered the entrance to the forgotten temple. The party, weakened from fighting everything else in the dungeon, decided to retreat and leave the locked temple for another day. Of course, the thief smelled some gold and had to sneak away, picking the lock and succeeding with a Feat-of-Strength check shoving the door open. Attacked by zombies, he came running back to the team, who were moaning about it heavily. Pretty soon, the zombies killed one PC after the other, no opportunity to retreat.

The thief was the last to survive, because he fled the scene. Before leaving the dungeon, a goblin (overlooked by the ravaging adventurers) saw the fleeing thief coming and decided to take revenge for his murdered goblin brethren and snuck in the back of the thief killing him with first strike.

Despite the TPK everybody was being excited about how the story turned out and we're meeting next month and playing another HM adventure. Thanks a lot for this one!
