0k Lets summarize:
I'm writing the last scene of a dungeon crawl adventure. I have in mind a complex task mixing as both progression/timing at once.http://www.crafty-games.com/forum/index.php?topic=4500.msg84647#msg84647
I almost write it all...We have troubles to play because only half the PCs shows to session...
The room is the mausoleum for an ancient forgotten god, here is his earthly body
I download the "one page dungeon" pdf and convert one dungeon to FC)
I change a lot of things in the original room to make it, as I say, a skill challenge.
Well the PCs must pass 5 test linked to 5 riddles.
The firsts one is a "test of strength".
The must "investigate/research" a pile of books/scrolls to find out about the test the riddle in the stone
point to one rune in the room carver on a crystal spear that have an impaled skeleton against the wall.
They cant release the spear neither break it with weapons or magic.
The only too things that break the spear is physical strength
Type of check: Individual
DC: 23 (Sliding: Desperate)
Time: 1 round
Success: The spear breaks. Critical:The skeleton is damaged too
Fail: Nothing happens you receive d4 wounds. Critical:d4+2 additional wounds and a broken bone (hand, foot, elbow)
Special: Martial Artist feat grants +4 bonus to the check.
Or by "Strengh of faith"
Strength of Faith
Type of check: Individual (aligned character only)
SKILL: Intimidate or Resolve (Wis) (character must argue the use of a skill)
DC: 20 (Sliding: Hard)
Time: 1 round
Success: The spear breaks Critical:The skeleton is damaged too
Fail: Nothing happens 1d4 Wis Impairment Critical:d4 additional Wis impairment
Special: Priest +2 to the check, same alignment +4 instead, opposite alignment -2 instead.
A priest character can spend 2 AD to “Ask his god for help” (as per "narrative control") and the lance breaks without making a roll.
(1 AD if friendly alignment 3 AD if opposed alignment)
At least is this what I came of.
I almost done with the scene need to write the four challenge right and some other things (2 special foes and a magical item), then I translate all to English (is in both english/spanish) and then I post in here to have feedback. Hope done this soon...lot of work!!! lol
Thanks all and good gaming
