Ok first of all my players are Gestalt. I have
Right off the bat my crazy players rush the main room on the 1st floor with the 12 swordsman and 6 archers. They take all of them out I have an archer run.
I had a random buddy show up at the last minute. So I told him he could write up a toon. He makes a Fighter/Monk.I have him chained up in a room just off of the main room on the 1st floor. He hears what going on checks it out. Runs into the party with no armor or no pack or no weapons. He takes a longsword from a corpse and joins them in hopes of finding his gear. They stumble into the makeshift kitchen. Look into the Haunted kitchen.
Change directions and head for the stairs. At this point they run into the ghost for the second time. The Cleric/Pally wins inititive and bam destroys the ghost thanks to some crazy feat.
I didn't add finishing moves or the Final boss ressurrection because I figured that was a little over the top. But this module was so well writin I had to run it as my first adventure.
They make it up the stairs. Run into the art room. Linger there forever checking things out. Then stumble into the room with the junk pile. Get attacked. The junk pile hits Fighter/Barbarian. Then turns on the Warblade/Duskblade. Then turns back onto the F/B. At this point he does some fast thinking since all of it hits him. He holds it into his chest. Has another player empty his backpack. They scoop the objects into the pack. At this point I give them 2 turns to decide what to do or they are gonna get loose and attack again. They run the backpack to the zoo throw it in there.
I should also point out that the F/B likes to think of his toon as greedy. So he had already removed the dead monkey from the zoo thinking he can sell it. At the same as the F/B deals with the swarm. The Duskblade paniced and ran north to the door and opens it.
Bam Undead Owlbear sets off the alarm and attacks. The duskblade in 2 rounds toe to toe with the owlbear almost drops like a rock. 3rd round 3 more players arrive to help. 4th round Fighter barbarian shows up throws his 2 handed great Hammer and bam. Takes the head off the owlbear. doing like 15 damage to the 32 hp owlbear that was at like 10.
Then they use the Disk they found in the snake right before the swarm. Now the players have healed like 60 hp at this point with it.
Anyway they go up the trapdoor. Bullet time as they called begins. They rush the Zaldez and his men. The F/B goes drops to -9hp. The Fighter/Ranger with a healing kit runs into combat to give him a potions they found but don't know what it does. I give one of the bodyguards an attack of opptunitity on the ranger. F/b is now at 1hp. It was an aid potion.
They drop a bodyguard and 2 archers. The F/B says he tries to sweep the legs out from under the bodyguards fails. He tells me this would cause another free attack on himself. Bam he's now at -8 hp. They take out a body guard next round. Last round they take down the named Valdez. Now we been playing for 6 hours at this point. I see 5 archers on the board. I say you mop up the rest of the archers and heal up.
So I tell the F/B since he almost died twice in such a short span of time you really don't feel like moving around for like the next hour. At this point they prop him up on backpack. And he starts instructing the group on what to loot of these bodies.
I have the Planar creature speak to them. The duskblade releases it. Now I give exp out since we end there.
Now i'm thinking of having valdez's love Sayanna flee to get revenge on the players. Also I was gonna try to tie in more of the struggle between the 2 kingdoms. Was thinking maybe even have a 3rd party capture her for real. Because they want war to break out.
I'm creating the campiagn world as they go. I'm figuring the govenor of the town will want to know whats going on.
I was gonna let the players find a diary or journal of valdez so they can put the pieces of the puzzle together.
I'm gonna buy the next Wicked Fantasy Factory module. This is a great module. As soon as i'm done with this module. I'm gonna order like 3 copies to stock in the Gaming shop I work in http://www.booksandmusicexchange.com/
. I work at the preston store.
This is my 1st time running in like 5 years.
