The fine-tuning like that is pretty much what we're playtesting. In play, does it have that effect, or not? Is it clear or not? Do characters get too much fatigue? What we're very much interested in is how it actually plays.
How's it looking so far?

Hey, @Morrus, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving a bit more in-depth explanation of the exploration challenges. Specifically, how is the CR determined? Both the example Acid Field and Tornado are Tier 2, but the first is CR 8 and the second is CR 10. Additionally, why are the DCs written as 18/15 and 17/15?

If you can't tell me now, that's OK; I just wanted to see if I could do this thing as an exploration challenge and realized I couldn't tell how to do it properly.

Adventuring tiers work the same way they do in O5E (except we added a Tier 0 ).

DCs are individual vs group checks.

I managed to not hear that element is there an elaborated description out?
Guessing tier zero is going to be either a psired with alevel zero start option or a problem that is more designed to make the players figure out something like a washed out bridge or something rather than one that is dangerous. Maybe both
