earth and water temple down and out
OK my group has taken down the earth and water temples now. From the adventure Im led to believe that HEdrack is going to start taking an interest in the group now.

So how does this actually occur? Does it take a long time for him to realise he is no longer getting reports from the temples? Does he scry on them often?

Also, what is his first line of attack likely to be. Personally my first move would be to try to find out about them - what classes he faces - how many - their favorite tactics........ that sort of thing. How do ya think he would go about that? And then what would his first line of attack be?

My party are quite well developed now.
5th lvl fighter
7th lvl wizard
5th lvl bard
7th lvl rogue (not playing at moment cause hes ill)
7th lvl bowman fighter
6th lvl cleric
7th lvl cleric (undead fetish - not really a healer)

I know they are all quite high - but frankly, while taking things down quickly, I usually have someone unconcious and during the big fights. There have been a number of deaths.

Would love your views

First of all he would scry them.

Hedrack knows all. Sees all.
Hedrack's greater scry spell lasts for many hours. He has no skill at scry. My Hedrack eventually found the party simply by scrying known locations throughout the mines and following the trails of corpses and empty areas.

After my PC's took out 2 temples. He sent one of the assassins. After that failed, he sent the other Assassin with buffs like greater magic weapon, and a Silenced/Fire resistant invis stalker. And finally Ukemil and 2 lions.

Each attack was an ambush at night while the PC's were resting. And each attack brought at least 1 PC to single digit hit points, but none of the PC's died.

Does it take a long time for him to realise he is no longer getting reports from the temples? Does he scry on them often?

You can assume there is movement and jockeying for position throughout the CRM. They are constantly moving from the Temple area's to the bridge areas to Outer fane for reports or requests. I'd have it happen every 1-2 days. But once it's been established that outside invaders are about. Spider riders and reports every 4 hours would be a good alert.

Hedrack probably has a messenger or laceky like Varachan or Naquent listen to reports and requests from the CRM.

He'd probably know 1 temple is fallen and not care. 1 plus a bridge complex or main gate, and not bother. Anything else is a nuisence to take care of.

Hope that helps.
