Deep Carbon Observations - A Review of Deep Carbon Observatory

My players are in the Observatory at the moment, they’ve met the giant and maybe they will not survive their next session. They also decided that if they die they’re not going to create new characters for this adventure and we’ll do something else. I think it’s time for a review, a retrospective and some thoughts about how to fix the things we didn’t like.

Crawling Sideways

I was thinking of making a dungeon with poetry. It’s not this one, but it has poetry inside, somewhere. This area is a living one, it’s not just caves, vehina live(d) here.

More subtables will come for the other entries soon.

The First Delve

It’s time to start keying something. If you don’t start you can never end.

The dungeon assumes rules for fall damage. In the final product we’ll have some, in the meantimes use the ones you’re more comfortable with (I suggest [1d6 + pg level x 10’ fallen] HP of damage). The caverns are hard to describe, they’re chaotic, oppressive, twisting. Not all of them, some of them. Make your players feel crushed by the weight of the stone above them, there’s no air, no light, no humanity.
