Really enjoying the Crypt of the Devil-Lich... With Spoiler

Post by Nightbay » Sat Jan 23, 2016 2:44 pm

My pathfinder group is very experienced in dungeon crawls. Knowing my campaign was going to be rife with tombs and undead, (ncluding Malice of the Medeusa, and The Dread Crypt of Srihoz), have becoming excellent trapsmiths. What a lovely surprise to get into Crypt of the Devil Lich and discover that not all the traps can be avoided with rolls. Last week, they encountered the flesh golems with the hell-wasp swarms. And it was AWESOME. With really only one character able to hurt the swarms, the other two characters had to run around getting stung so that the fire-throwing oracle wouldn't get constantly stung and die.

Heh. Not all the traps are detectable with a roll. Love that. Very creative. Thanks for the fun, guys.

Oh wow, that's an old school 3.5e DCC module. I'll have to check it out!

No traps are detectable with a roll. :wink:

You have to search and do stuff, and the roll says you were successful or not... 8)

Finished it last night. Managed to loose two characters in the same night, both from the same player. After that, they were more careful.

Ultimately, Chelychia nearly got out. She'd managed to maze the barbarian, and had power word stunned the oracle, and had two rounds to take care of the rogue. But the barbarian rolled a 19 and got out of the maze. Ah well.
