Well, heck, actually #2 of an ongoing series.

Hey, I like the sound of that! :)

I wasn't sure if Wyvern Mountain was next in the series as there didn't seem to be anything linking them together (other then the word Mountain) on its web page. Unlike the Punjar ones that all have 'Punjar' in the title and have the section 'Related Products' where they list the others.

Looking forward to the others. I think we'll move slow enough that you'll have time to come out with new ones before we finish what is already out. :)

Thanks for the info.

Pretty please,

In room 1-20A apparently their is a a skill challenge to move a block. If they successfully move the block one direction they still cannot gain entry to further in the dungeon which the skill challenge references. Is the skill challenge to push the block or pull the block or both. If they fail the challenge does this dead end the module? Your input is greatly appeciated.

Sorry, Uck, I had missed your query. Joseph had to point it out to me.

Ah, the joys of translation. Or miseries, as in this case.

If you look at the map, it gives the most accurate picture. The block can be pushed in, permitting passage. This is not, repeat not, an appropriate use for a skill check. Rather it requires three DC 20 Strength checks to push the stone block in (moving it north west) to allow passage.

Pulling it out is much more difficult, unless the PCs find a way to create handholds in the blank stone face. Pulling it out requires the block to be moved further, and is more difficult: five successful DC 25 Strength checks.

In any case, failures do not produce a penalty, they simply indicate that the PCs' strength was insufficient to move the block a measurable difference.
