I have faced acid traps, various crazy critters, and perilous chasms of doom, but have no magic items and very little gold to show for my delving. Is it just Kopfy and his stinginess?
I did take Jherrrii into 'Strange Destinies' a few months back and was promptly killed by a band of wandering super colossal giant enormous ants...more on this fun event can be found here.
"OK - the solo mission that came with the boxed set - 'Strange Destinies' - is it a typo, or does the wandering monster table actually have the Giant Ant correct with a MR of 100 each???
So - when I rolled the number appearing as 3 - my lone dwarf Jerry the Great (nay Good) had a snowballs chance in hell to even damage something that is rolling 11d6 + 50 combat adds for a single ant. So technically - Jerry the Great (nay Dead) - has been killed, while he was able to dodge two of the ants while fighting the third - he was quickly ant food - in the FIRST DAMN ROOM!!! My weapon and adds are 4d6 + 49."
Talking on the 'Walla, even Ken agreed that Strange Destinies is a very difficult solo adventure and I quickly called 'Not Fair' and the dwarf is officially still breathing.
So now - I have a copy of 'The Tavern by the Sea' as well as some other solos that I think are more suited for a lowly but great 3rd level Fighter...we shall see how it goes and what riches I should discover.
So, I am headed to....
