Session 4 Summary
The “Crypt Crawl” was a level 2 delve written and run by Brillig. It was a fairly straightforward “beat up the undead things” adventure. The setup for the module was “You find a clue about some somewhere that’s supposed to have some treasure or something.” (That’s a direct quote from the write-up.) This delve was very minion heavy with of 26 the 34 monsters being minions. (Or 30 of 38 if you count the crawling gauntlets summoned by the necromancer.)
For this module we used heroscape tiles to map out all 3 encounters. We assumed that 1 hex was equal to 1 square even though the scale was slightly off. Moving upward cost 1 additional point of movement per “level”. In theory, moving up or down too many levels at once would require an athletics check for climbing, but that didn’t come into play.
Session 4 Encounter 1: (Level 2 – 710 exp)
The first encounter was in an open area on the way to the crypt, so the fight started at fairly long range. Initially most of the undead was on the far side of a hill, so they weren’t visible that the start of combat.
- 10 Pack Zombies – Level 2 Minion (310 exp total)
- 2 Skullborn Zombies – Level 2 Soldier (250 exp total)
- 1 Skeletal Archer – Level 3 Artillery (150 exp)
Session 4 Encounter 2: (Level 2 – 730 exp)
For the second encounter undead guarded ruins at the entrance to a narrow canyon.
- 10 Tomb Motes – Level 3 Minion (380 exp total)
- 2 Witherlings – Level 4 Skirmisher (350 exp total)
Session 4 Encounter 3: (Level 4 – 900 exp)
The third encounter took place at the end of a box canyon. There the party met and defeated the necromancer causing the area to have “undead issues”. (Note: In addition to the monsters listed below, the necromancer had an encounter power that let it summon 4 crawling gauntlets (level 3 minions). These aren’t counted because they’re included in the necromancer’s exp value.)
- 1 Dark Creeper Necromancer – Level 5 Elite Skirmisher (400 exp)
- 2 Ghoul Flesh Seekers – Level 4 Lurker (350 exp total)
- 6 Decrepit Skeletons – Level 1 Minion (150 exp total)
