Field report for D&D Encounters: Against the Cult of Chaos (Week 8.) now available at Dungeon's

We had a great final encounter. The party got in hot water really early on, so as the DM I had to pull punches (those monsters did a lot of damage!). I had the Skeleton of Haffron Hommel switch sides once they deactivated two altars. This helped turn the tide and led to ultimate victory. At the end I asked the players what they thought their PC would do next and we spent about 10-15 minutes talking about it. People really felt attached to these characters.

We discuss the ups and downs, what worked and what didn’t in this week’s Recounting Encounters Podcast (also available through iTunes).

Two great session (recounted at to see out this season.

Overall a fun season to play and well written (thanks Shawn and James once again) my only gripe would be the tenuous link between the two cults operating within the same area. I would have thought the more powerful of the two would have either taken over or simply destroyed the lesser one, but perhaps if played in a campaign environment that could form the basis of a plot twist, unfortunately it didnt seem to fit "neatly" within the confines of such a short encounters season.

"Well that encounter was, guys, why is the DM grinning?" (party members last words)

It's not a party till the screaming starts!
