The little girl in D1


Pathfinder Modules


Spoiler:

Seriously? A werewolf? Right off the bat? I mean, that's very likely the first encounter the PCs will have and here they are brand new 1st level PCs with no magic or silver weapons. It'll be a TPK.

What am I supposed to do with that?


What are you talking about?

Hollow's Last Hope (D0) doesn't have a werewolf?

Module info:
Well, Jeva is in D1: Crown of the Kobold King, which is the follow up to D0: Hollows Last Hope. It is designed to be a very tough encounter for 2nd level characters. At that point they should have enough hit points to last long enough to wear her down to the 10 hp they needs to get her to for her to flee.

My suggestion would be for her to be mentioned with the other missing children and have her show up somewhere in the dungeon when the party can handle her better (such as after levelling up).

Otherwise I'd turn her into a magical fey creature that can take the form of a wolf but has a DR 2/cold iron to make her an easier foe.

Hope those suggestions help. :)


D'oh! Meant D1.

My players handled her pretty easily. I suspect they may have picked up a silver weapon in Hollow's Last Hope.
I'll check my books when I get home.

You're right.

Silver Weapon:
It's a silver light hammer, tucked into the belt on a body of a long dead dwarf in the waiting room of the ruined monastery.

If you run the encounters as suggested in D1, the party should be able to get it before the attack.


There are silver weapons in D1

Spoiler:
there are 2 silver daggers in the basement of the halfway house. I also decided that because of all of Elara's attempts to cure her, there was no danger of Jeva passing on lycanthropy.

Also, your party is supposed to start D1 at level 2, which helps.

So between the silver weapons found in D1 and the weapon from D0, as well as the party being 2nd level by the time they handle the situation, it shouldn't be that bad.


Excellent posts, thank you all. I am no longer worried about this encounter.


Im going to be running this soon with 6 lvl 1s. Im not too worried since its 6 pcs but I forgot about the Dr5/silver

Well,

Spoiler:
Jeva is an afflicted lycanthrope (bitten by the beast that devoured her parents), so there shoudn't be any risk of spreading the disease any further.

In my game - that featured a very large group of 8 - I made her a recent ally of the worg, used to lure human victims to the monastery. Also the lycanthrope that bit her is a werewolf champion from the southern Arthfell forest, and very unhappy to hear that one of the newborn members of his "pack" has been mistreated by adventurers.

Our party had a paladin, so the DR wasn't a problem thanks to smite evil.


I'll have to keep this in mind, so here's a dot.

Also, were these modules 3.5e ones or updated to Pathfinder?

The modules were written for 3.5, but in our case we played it using Pathfinder.

Spoiler:
When we met the little girl, she gave the whole sob story about being abused by the woman running the orphanage, since she was an "evil" child. The goblin rogue (called "Sprout", on the grounds that he's small, green and most people don't like him) was very sympathetic, and replied "Well, you are in luck. We have a paladin with us. He can detect for evil, and prove to you that you aren't evil."

The DM smirked, and decided that being cursed with lycanthropy made her similar to an evil outsider, so her evil alignment registered even though per the RAW she didn't have enough hit dice. So the rogue says, "There you are love. Just like I told you." And my paladin replies "Er, Sprout. There's something you should know ..."

Qadira

You can always have her tugging along with the PCs for a bit before turning into a monster (increases shock value!)
