The Breaking of the Fellowship
The always insightful Alexander Kilcoyne sent me a message regarding the challenges of designing balanced encounters for such a large group. I have pondered on this, and come up with a proposal, which will hopefully solve the issue without me having to turn away people I invited in the first place, and at the same time add a fun twist to the game.
What I propose is this: Two teams.
We split the proposed characters into two separate groups (and perhaps bring in DM Barcas to make it five on each team). Each group travels up river with a river barge, have exciting encounters along the way, and eventually meet up in Tymon, where both groups try their luck in the arena - with the possibility of fostering some intergroup rivalry and setting up some PvP combat.
I imagine each team will have it's own dedicated IC and OOC thread, and we have joint threads for when the storylines intertwine.
What do you all say to this idea?
Sounds fine to me.
