anybody running age of worms? i'm starting it in 2 weeks.
i'm reviewing the first adventure for AOW and its pretty tough for a first level adventure. i'm concerned that they'll probably die on the first installment of what's supposed to be a long adventure track. specifically there's a swarm that, according to the stat block, is immune to weapon damage. how the hell are a bunch of first level PC's supposed to fight that off? if they don't have the right spell memorized they're toast. i'm thinking of planting a scroll that will deal with it in case they don't have the correct spell. flaming hands should probably take the swarm out. it would also harm whatever PC was being swarmed but i think that's a fair trade for me providing them with a solution to the problem. what do you all think? should i just let them work it out on their own or do you think it's fair to provide them with help on a problem i don't think they can handle on their own?
