Not that I'm some expert or something, but I've never even heard of this; I thought that I was at least passingly familiar with most older modules. Maybe I can look this one up. Thanks.N4 Treasure Hunt
The PCs are thrown into a survival situation as normal people and must use thier wits to get out alive because they don't even have a character class, let alone powers to rely on.
Nothing is better at teaching people to approach problems as regular people than letting them play regular people.
I don't know. You asked for "Gygaxian" style, and B2 (and T1) is a classic Gygax module. If there is anything to learn about Gygaxian style, playing through a Gygax module will teach it.Witty Comeback said:Alright, let's take B2: what are the skills that PCs are "supposed to learn" in the Caves of Chaos?
"Just because it's there doesn't mean you have to explore it." B2 cannot be completed by a level 1 party in a single go-through. It just can't unless Lady Luck calls you "son" and lives in your house. There are too many monsters, traps, and situatios that can outright kill the entire party. The DM is encouraged to use wandering monsters and some areas will replenish when you leave them so if you tried to camp outside you'll likely be ambushed.Alright, let's take B2: what are the skills that PCs are "supposed to learn" in the Caves of Chaos?
