I ran my second Sambral MYRE for Jonathan, Mark, Tom, Hudson, and Susan. I really need to tune down my MYREs – it is not the case that any random combination of experience point appropriate monsters will be as easy as one might expect from the average LFR module. The opening fight was a mere 938 experience points – even level for a high tier group – and I dropped three PCs. The second fight was also pretty iffy, although not as bloody.
I admit, I toned the last fight down a bit on the fly and I suspect everyone would have appreciated it if I’d let them know. You really don’t need to toss a swarm artillery at a party when the defender is down to zero surges; it’s just unkind.
I was also fooling around with forcing a combat to take place in motion. I did not have the tuning quite right. I’ll try again if I can come up with a good setting for it – it may require a heavier hand with the terrain. The problem is, you don’t want to kill people who don’t move quickly enough… I’ll figure it out one of these days.
Anyhow, I had fun and everyone claimed they had fun as well, so I count it as a success.
