Musn't forget: "If a brigand is captured, he will offer to lead the party to his hide-out (Area 2A Map) if they spare his life. He will not volunteer any more information about the hideout, but will not lie if asked a direct question about it."Marcon said:Since no one highlighted this part of the 2nd encounter :
"The brigands will fight until they are all dead, or until the party has been killed."
Good Lord... "Should a PC forget to tell you his character is breathing, have him roll a Con check to see if he is choking. If he fails, he is allowed a second roll, this time with a -2 penalty or he will fall lifeless to the ground."
A real gem, thanks for sharing.
Obviously the brigand wouldn't lie... That's just unconscionable!
