Players are in trouble
Hello all! This is my first time as a member. I would always take a quick peek from time to time but now i am the one that needs some feedback.
First this is what my playes are playing
8th lvl elven wizard
9th dwarven fighter
9th half-elven cleric of sylvanus
6th rogue/3rd fighter halfling
Ok they entered the western bridge complex in CRM(#37) without being fully rested and got clobbered. The wizard died and the dwarf was taken prisoner. The cleric and halfling buffed to the max and went to save the dwarf but had to flee so they left with wizard body and raised him. I don't think they will be able to save the dwarf just the 3 of them. What should I do? wizard was talking about hiring mercenaries to help. I was thinking maybe another group of adventurers entered CRM and saved the dwarf but got hammered later. What do you think?
p.s. i am sooooo impatient for 3.5 to come out:D

Re: Players are in trouble
Hmm...pretty high level for that part of the mines. What have the players cleared out? Some ideas, not knowing what you have available:

1. Have D'Gran sell the dwarf to the gargoyles. Work up a plan where the players will find out about the fight and will need to rescue him, perhaps during the fight! Given his level, if you use the splatbook Kellial, you can actually have the dwarf (sans armor and maybe with a poor weapon) fight Kellial in the arena.

2. Kill the dwarf and toss his stinking, bloated body into the Stalagos. Have Varachan step in at this point, and rescue the body and give it back to the rest of the party somehow.

3. Let the guards relax and give the dwarf the opportunity to escape; maybe this could happen just as the other players attempt a final rescue attempt.

4. "I was thinking maybe another group of adventurers entered CRM and saved the dwarf but got hammered later." I don't like this as it smacks too much of deus ex machina. The hiring of mercenaries isn't too bad, however, but the only mercenaries are those belonging to the ToAC. This would make for interesting ideas as the group talks to other factions in order to enlist their help. I can see a case where Kelashein says, "Okay, we'll help rescue your friend, but you must help us against the Fire Temple."

They have cleaned out CRM from 1-36 (they seem to follow the numbers instictively without any prompting)

Well, hey, how useful is that? :) Any of those ideas help? Are you looking for something else?
