Just finished running the level 0 module at Dave's Clubhouse here in Columbus for a group of 15 players. Everyone rolled 1 pc (only had 2 rulebooks, one I printed and 1 pdf on my ipad) and character creation took a full half hour (including copying sheets by hand, I didn't print enough). I let everyone reroll occupation and hp once if they died (all but 3 died at least once). I'm going to give a full writeup in a bit, but it was received well as a 0 level party game. A full campaign would be hard to sell on this group, but as a one shot, it was great
The first character died trying to force the door after some poor intelligence rolls. The next took a few spears to the face trying to toss our dead hafling friend to trigger the trap, but rolling poorly and getting skewered.
I put the statue in a cage and gave it a bit more mobility to gather interest. It worked but I rolled poorly after the first two hit.
The snake garnered little interest, it got a surprise round and that was it.
The group almost attacked the crystal men, but a few great intelligence checks warranted letting them know they were peaceful.
They wouldnt drop the floor
They crushed all 7 skeletons, no clay generals, and they took enough crystals and took long enough that I ruled it leaked enough water to kill the soldiers (avoiding a TPK)
All in all, with 15 players, we completed it in 2 hrs (I rushed them), including char gen, and most seemed to enjoy it. Up to 30 entered, 8 or so survived.
