Re: Scaly God question (spoilers)

I have a love/hate relationship with the 4e minion thing at this point. I love the idea of mighty heroes mowing down a horde of orcs or lackeys (view the first page or two of any Conan comic for an example). It also allows the GM to throw a really large group of monsters at the party—40 skeletons su...

I hope your party is still relatively intact after the first two modules named Jezza, they'll probably need to be! :mrgreen:

Re: They did it

Sounds like an impressive combat, IK. Thanks for the synopsis! (I can say with confidence that all the DCC authors like reading about experiences had with their adventures. It improves the writer, and keeps one from writing in a vacuum, so to speak.) So keep those tales coming—I'd be delighted to he...

IK,

Those dimensions sound fine. (I pretty much pictured it along those lines, though perhaps a taller than 1 inch and cone shaped.)

Sort of this shape:

The quote was mine, so I'll take the blame for that! :) The pech could wall them in, or a rockslide (common in the area) could wall them in (leaving the dragon's exit tunnel as their only exit), but ultimately it might be better to let the players do as they will. If the PCs take longer than 5 days ...

Wonderful, wonderful work, None. I'm gratified to see my vision truly come to life, thanks to your skill.
