Glog has convinced me...
Glog has convinced me to NOT use the advanced howler.

IMC, for those of you who haven't been following the log, my players have just had three straight sessions of hell...getting lots of ability drains from the undead in Nulb, an extremely tough fight with Lareth and a long fight with the entire hobgoblin tribe in the ruined temple at once.

I'm not sure how I'm going to work it yet, as I have another 10 days before I run again. I'm either going to tone the howler down, or I'll use the fully advanced howler, but modify the set-up so that Mereclar, Wormspike and the howler are in off hunting outside of the CRM when the players arrive.

You don't need to do any tone down work, just use the stats in the module.

I probably wouldn't have all three outside hunting. One of the leader types should probably stay at home. Or maybe I've just watched too much Star Trek. ;)

As I mentioned earlier, the Howler DOES deserve some serious respect and I really agree with Andorax's perspective on giving the players something that "chills them to the bone."

Again, it is a great encounter. Use it to really scare the crap out of the players, but see if you can find a way to do it without beating them into submission with their fourth drag-out, knock-down, no-holds-barred, slugfest in a row.

There are other ways to make the party feel the pain than killing them in combat. I wouldn't tone it down either, but would find a way to use the Howler and company to really make an impact on the party and get them thinking twice about what's around the next corner.
