And that is everyone. Amanda and I will be there early for us to meet up (see picture for what we look like). Otherwise we can try and do the gencon friends and family thing to get tickets to people. (Tickets are on her account) My cell # in case it is needed is 317 345 6690.

I'd encourage the group to look at doing it at nightmare level. I suspect we'll be more than prepared for it. I have done N1before but my understanding is that different options may open up depending on how we pursue it. I also know at least one of the puzzles got changed (regardless, I won't spoil the puzzles and will follow the group's lead on them).

I can help equip players as well with non-weapon tokens for anyone who is newer (rings of heroism, etc). If we need to boost our firepower, I can play either monk or elf wizard - it increases my damage output by around 25 points per round.

This is an amazingly well done adventure and much more spacious than prior seasons. I suspect we'll have a great time.

My only concern with doing nightmare is how boring combat will be for us semi newbs if we don't have anything useful to do and just have to depend on the Uber players to carry us through. I'll accept the groups decision, I just want to make sure we can still meaningfully contribute.

I'm open either way. Amanda and I are borderline nightmare so it depends on how well we can equip the people with Adam.

I have Nightmare ready builds for all five players that feel they aren't equipped for combat.

Here is a summary of what I have with my extras (I normally outfit 4-5 players in my usual group that aren't token-holics like me):

Bard - level 5 - 47 hit points - + 11 to hit with range using +1 Fae Blowgun so can join the fun while still giving an extra +2 to hit and damage (not included in these numbers)

Dwarf Fighter - level 5 - 58 hit points - + 14 to hit and + 8 damage (before bardsong) - AC 37 so able to taunt easily without fear

Wizard - level 5 - 50 hit points - Medallion of Mystic Mouth for some fun with wands and Ring of Spell Storing for big combats

Barbarian (assuming they only have Ring of Heroism and AoTF and ISSN as Jacob hinted) - level 5 - 56 hit points - +12 to hit and + 16 to damage (before bardsong) - and that's only with a +1 rare Bliss Axe.

Ranger (assuming Ring of Heroism and AoTF and ISSN) - level 5 - 47 hit points - melee +10 to hit and + 8 damage (before bardsong) with crit on 19-20 ((keen scimitar).

That should allow everyone to feel like they are contributing during the combats and enough hit points to survive some miscues and lucky shots from monsters.

And if some of you have more Treasure Enhancers we can easily add those (I added Cloak of Many pockets for those who didn't declare any).

With that I think Nightmare should be reasonable for us

I still need to tinker with my builds as my token order for this year got sent to the wrong address so I have to wait until sunday when I visit my parents to get them but generally I have most slots filled with the best available rares not including anything from 2018 and the big UR+ being the RoH and AoTF and silver nugget for both builds and the tavernbane kilt for one. I'll try to get everything set by monday for the builds so if anyone is wanting to loan stuff to beef up either build to tackle a harder difficulty I'll load the builds to the app so I can adjust them in coaching.

Thanks, that sounds like we will all have a fun time. :)

I do have some decent rares and a single ring of heroism. I would be excited to do nightmare if that's the groups choice. Would it help if I shared what I have?

The Barbarian build looks as good as I can build - so anything I have there doesn't change it much.

For your Ranger I have these tokens that can help out -
Icecrag Earcuff instead of Vitality
Blessed Pants of the Hare instead of Pants of Springing

+2 keen scimitar and Brawlers Horn - gets you to +10 to hit and +8 damage.

And I would suggest Fae Elm Armor instead of Darkling Void - the difference in A C isn't as important as more HP especially in puzzle rooms. But it's up to you on that one.

I'll have everything with me either way
