10-98 Special - notes on playing this special

Ok, there is a lot to digest in playing this scenario, especially the assisting characters. Here's my take from playing this at origins.

trying to avoid any spoilers:

assisting characters are really just levels. it doesn't matter what skills or spells or class a character is. only level. luck will be a factor in success as well. avoiding injury will be based on luck and level. recovering from injury is going to require prestige. have at least 8 ready. you can have up to three characters participating. try to have 3. you need assisting characters to succeed in what they're doing for the room to succeed. your assisting character will play a role (there's like 5). try to cover all five with multiple characters at the table. this directly contributes to the success of the room. bring your latest chronicles of characters you would want to assist.

i think the difference between champion and soldier is not only does the content diverge, but also the recovery. champion will split off after one goal for a couple encounters, soldier will go after another. in champion, your characters, including assisting, can die w/o a chance to recover/rez.

be prepared for general dungeon crawl. it's not an undead only slog like i thought it maybe, but our table had about 40% undead encounters.

higher level tables may have abilities that will allow them to bypass certain encounters. try to get a balanced table. i ran with tank - tank - gunslinger - wizard - cleric. this was almost an ideal mix. though, we didn't make any knowledge rolls so no idea what we were fighting ;) try to premuster in line and arrange yourself into workable teams.

don't dally, this is a timed event. things will happen. depending on how many successes have been sent in by that time, will change the conditions of the scenario and as well as have story affects.

be prepped, have some tactics down, and for pete's sake, don't lick anything!
