These two statements seem to contradict each other.
- Page 2, At the end of each session: The adventurers take an extended rest.
- Page 4, No Extended Rests: They’re assumed to take an extended rests between each pair of sessions.
So which is it? Do the PCs get everything back after each week or do they only get the benefits of an extended rest after every other week. What this really comes down to is how often they can use daily powers. Looking at the way the adventure is structured there are some weeks (like session 1) that will have very little combat. So pairing session 1 & 2 together before allowing an extended rest doesn’t seem like a huge hardship.
My instinct is that the intent of the rules variations they’re encouraging for this season is to do extended rests after each even numbered session. I’m also inclined to award milestones after each even numbered session as well, thereby giving the PCs 1 action point every other week (like they’re used to with Encounters).
How are other DMs handling extended rests?
