• 1 Dragonborn Gladiator (Level 10 Soldier)
SKILL CHALLENGE: Lost At Sea .... 300 xp
To keep the new Seekers from being noticed and preventing anyone from charting a path back to the island, the characters are put in a boat which is then teleported to open sea within sight of land. Unfortunately, a storm hits as they make their way to shore.
Setup: You must use your knowledge of the weather and control the boat long enough to get to land.
Complexity: 3 (requires 8 successes before 4 failures).
Primary Skills: Endurance, Nature, Athletics.
• Endurance (DC 10): At least one character in the party must make Endurance checks each turn to resist the howling winds and rain that lashes across the deck. A failed check indicates that all members of the party lose one healing surge, in addition to counting as a failure for the challenge.
• Athletics (DC 10): At least two characters in the party must make a Nature check each turn to help the group find its way through the wind and waves. A failed check indicates that all members of the party lose one healing surge, in addition to counting as a failure for the challenge.
• Nature (DC 5): At least one character in the party must make a Nature check each turn to help the group find its way through the wind and waves. Using this skill doesn’t count as a success or failure for the challenge, but instead provides a +2 bonus or –2 penalty to the next character’s Endurance or Athletics check.
Success: The characters are able to land the boat successfully in a marshy inland swamp.
Failure: The characters run the boat ashore, and are dazed (save ends) and surprised during the first round of the next encounter.
