2020 GT Run S3 Tomb of Terrors Group B 9 months 2 weeks ago #13

I will not veto epic, but I urge caution if S3 premieres at GenCon. If it is a premier event then it will be a crapshoot weather it will be a cakewalk or a TPK.

I cannot do the shirt of linked healing because I use the Viper Strike shirt for the set bonus

Unless we see a substantial change in how difficulty is being adjusted for nightmare or epic at Origins, I'd say Epic for certain. I doubt we took 100 damage as a party last year and didn't have anything make it to round 4 (only 1 thing made it to round 3). With the pretty sizable increase in damage output this year, it may take a while for TD to find ways to make nightmare and epic appropriately difficult.

I suspect this adventure will be much more puzzle and trap focused. It's based on the ultimate trap dungeon - Tomb of Horrors. If it has a combat in Room 7, it would be the "semi-lich" if it followed the script from Tomb of Horrors (undead - main attack is more save or die as opposed to hp damage - invulnerable to all but a small list of attack types).

I am really hoping they do something a bit goofy from the original module and have people dressed as spheres of annihilation chasing us around the dungeon.

So was just looking at the list and thinking about Epic Vs. Nightmare.

I think this group will destroy nightmare with no possibility of death. Personally I enjoy the possibility we might fail, even though I think it is slim even on epic. I'm all about the challenge, but totally understand that's not everyone's cup of tea.

Personally I would much prefer epic. However, if we went epic, I would wonder if Chris would mind a switch to Elf Wizard so we could get plus 10 initiative each combat? I do have a staff of power if he needs to borrow it.

Hmmm...I’ll have to take some time to think about the switch to EW. It’s interesting. My build is mostly going toward sliding spells which is better under the regular wizard than elf wizard. I’ll play around with builds. We have plenty of time to figure it out.

I am cool with Epic.

Updated the thread title to reflect new GT run announcement. (Full runs of Nymph & Nimblewit on 7/30.) Huzzah!

After doing epic for the Patron run, I am ok with either nightmare or epic. The only problem epic gave us was monster acs and saves. The acs we had to hit were 35 and 40 and save dcs were 35+. Now, that was Jeff running it so not sure if that would be the same for other Gms.

If anyone else is interested in doing rogue, I would like to try out either my new cabal set with an elf wizard or my monk with the new legendary. If nobody else was itching to go rogue, I can stick with it, though.

I've, um, acquired my own Surtr's and a +5 Deathcleaver, but I might not be Epic geared for a GT run if the monster ACs are 35/40 and the rolls required to pass a save are 35. Here's my current GT build stats:

HP: 85
Melee: 21/46/23
Saves: 18/11/15

We'll have a bard at +4/+4, so that helps. I have a FoP: Pixie to negate the effects of one failed Reflex save. Am I being overly pessimistic? I don't want to nix Epic if it is doable, but I also don't want to drag the team down if my build doesn't cut it at that level. Discussion welcome.

Fred, I asked Laz the same question in the main 2020 GT thread. He said the times are Central (like the rest of the N&N runs).

Just in case anyone didn't see it in the main 2020 GT thread, Lori has posted about a couple of discrepancies between GTs submitted and spots claimed in our run. Check here to see if she's talking about you. Thanks!

Definitely an issue! If people want to be in the GT runs, they have to ship their tokens likely by Monday.

Anyone ho hasn’t likely can’t do the run!
