Sea Encounters 
26th-Jan-2007 02:20 pm
I picked up the Stormwrack book a little while ago, and I'm writing up a sea-based adventure. What I'm having a lot of trouble with is figuring out encounter levels at sea. Obviously, a group of opponents on a small boat are going to have a lower EL than the same group on an ironside equipped with all manner of ballista and a firespout. Does anyone have any experience coming up with these sort of encounters? How did you design them? I know the book says to get away from ship-to-ship combat as fast as possible and back to one-on-one stuff, but I haven't found much else about balancing these encounters.

Oh, and while I'm posting, has anyone ever run into a divine spellcasting class that casts spontaneously (ala Sorceror)?

d20 Modern tackled your CR problem early on out of necessity. It became a rather notable issue that a wuss in a tank is tougher than a fairly tough hero. Depending on the vehicular/equipment disparity between the party and the enemy, just jack up the EL one to three points.
