And that’s exactly 57 XP too few…. (lucky I didn’t do the Initiative. That would have been 7 XP too few)

Could it be…..that that automatic ice wall around her at the end of the battle was her cunning idea for a escape? The trigger was probably “when I am low hitpoints, cast icewall around me”, so she can cast dimension door then? Then it would have been really hard to catch her….

Well, no matter what she had up her sleeve, you definitely did her in…

I take it the bronze great wyrm was meant to be bypassed or otherwise dealt with, without resorting to violence? These GameMastery modules intrigue me, I shall have to play in (and perhaps run) more.
Lone spellcasters go down pretty easily.

Well, if the party was clever and prepared to a party member or two, it would have been possible to defeat him in combat as it was considered to be a CR 15 enemy. Every round you are supposed to roll on the Confusion chart to determine if he attacks or not, and he has currently only 113 hitpoints instead of 565. But still… consider a full attack: bite +50 (6d6+14), 2 claws +47 (2d8+7), 2 wings +47 (2d6+7), tail slap +47 (2d8+21) and with BAB +39 & Power Attack he should compfortably make that a +30 Power Attack… Or his breath weapon of 24d6, Fort DC 39. (Strange, that should be Ref instead of Fort…) And when it comes to defenses, he has SR 31, AC 44, Fort +29, Ref +23, Will +21.
Issuing the challenge, thus opening the trap door, while the dragon’s still there & demented → the dragon “attacks the PC speaking the challenge for one round, then acts as if under the effects of confusion for the next 5 rounds.” This is what happened to our party with a max. Diplomacy skill of +1.
Anyway, feel free to take a look at my collection of modules.

Ah, he is badly injured AND insane. That would make it doable, though a full suite of attacks on a single PC would probably kill that PC. Dragons are sick like that.
I am very interested in Crucible of Chaos, Seven Swords of Sin, and The Demon Within. Do you have those?
– Adrian 2008-04-16 20:27 UTC
Sure. I’m subscribed to both the adventure path and the modules, so I have them all.
