Takane, the recipient of that compound fracture in last week's session, had to stay out of combat this time. When the party ran into three ghouls inside a beachside cave, all she could do was stay outside and protect some of the locals.
And I almost got all three in the cave...if not for one extra meta-game effect.
I'm not certain if this adventure is too difficult with regard to the number of undead. I planned high due to the presence of the powerful Merciful Fate in the group. Without her, maybe three ghouls was unfair? Encounter balance is tough to figure out in a game with at least one atypical character. Aside from the cleric, there's a Dwarf fighter with nearly perfect stats.
Maybe it shouldn't have gotten that bad to begin with and it was lucky they had Face's Honorary Knight mulligan. That's a meta-game effect I can do nothing about. :)
