My little self-contained adventure is pretty much complete. I just need to round it all off with a good post boss fight piece of narrative.
As it is essentially complete and due to the fact my eldest is getting quite good at d&d I decided to run through the adventure as an activity during a longer car journey.
This did mean that it was his level 2 character playing the basic encounters solo but the first encounter isn’t meant to be won. The following encounter did prove a little easy for him alone but I have written in an option for additional enemies to join the combat, he also benefitted from some awful rolls on my part.
His style of play did throw up a few things that I hadn’t thought of. For example after being told that one of the cabins he was passing was locked he immediately tried to break in. I hadn’t planed for this, luckily I was able to quickly think on my feet and used the appearance of an NPC to stop his attempt.
