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