I think I have some affinity for rolling up magic swords. The first OD&D dungeon I ever drew up and ran people through, the very first room rolled up a cursed sword as unguarded treasure. No one would touch anything they found after that!

>(ooc 2: just to mae it clear, as im playing a lot of pbf now, hehhe. our mission is to identify fountains? we have only 3 characters, and two minstrels? if so, lets hire more people, like 2 archers)
It looks like we're getting a gnome any day now. And bear in mind that our mission doesn't require us to engage any adversaries; we're just looking to find a hidden fountain. A smaller group might be best for that.
Yes, sirravd is coming in with a gnome M-U. Now that you've been into the ruins once and have an idea of what they're like, I'll disclose that I'm going to modify the chances of encounters based on how large the party is, at least on the surface streets.
Very small parties can sneak around for longer without drawing attention to themselves, while larger parties provide better protection and have a greater chance of scaring encounters away due to numerical superiority. Both are tactics worth considering.
Ancient Roman Baths of Aquae Sulis (Outdoor encounters): 1 in 6 chance of encounters, frequency determined by party size: (1) every 6 turns (2-3) every 5 turns (4-5) every 4 turns (6-10) every 3 turns (11-20) every 2 turns (21+) every turn
Hi all, I'm still here, just busy taking care of the little kobold. I've had to cut back on pretty much all of my online gaming during the inevitable reschedule of life priorities, but I've specifically made room to keep this particular game going because I like it so much.
I should be able to update things again tomorrow when I'm back at my uni and having a normal workday.
