An interesting turn of events with two I play this adventure with. Both are experienced first person shooter gamers who are intrigued by this type of gaming. We have traveled a bit together, starting with the Dragon Fiend Pact and such. And now we are halkfway down Forge of Fury & the Duerger Caverns.
We are a group of three; a ftr/thf (which I guess the modern version is a rogue), a Rng and an MU. At the entry of Forge of Fury are two PCs held captive by the orcs, which I was looking to add to the party to provide the players with a few more options. The party worked it way around and through the orcs, the ogre and his pet warg, and got to the captives, which they released. I tried playing the captives as all friendly like. The party was extremely wary, but did provide a few arms and gear.
Through a few more rooms to meet up with the shaman and her pet owlbears; the rng was struck with fear, the ftr/thf was knocked unconscious. IN step the two new guys who stood in, up, well against the baddies and saved the party's bottom line. That not withstanding, the two players were quick to establish a secret code for when to off the new guys.
Into the room near the huge cavern where the many dwarven tombs lay and out comes the secret code for offing the newbies. The mu resisted, but still the party treated the new guys like total dicks. At the cusp of the Duergar area is the pit entry way. The ftr/thf fell into the pit, the rng saw the veggie pigmies and stepped around to defend the hole if needed. When the mu approached to see about helping the ftr/thf, I had the new guys push the mu in and run away!
who will have to advise the rng a little more on proper decorum lest he lose his skills
