DDEP10-00 The Great Knucklehead Rally


To fight the despair brought on by the Everlasting Rime, an eccentric dwarf
sponsors a fishing tournament she calls the “Great Knucklehead Rally.” The event
draws the curious, the hopeful, and the cynical alike. And it also draws unexpected
guests who’ll test the attendees’ mettle.

A Three-Hour Epic Adventure Optimized for 2nd-Level Characters

Single Table Play
Guidance is included in this Epic for a single DM to run the adventure for a single table. 

Epics in Online Play
One of the attractions of Epic play is the feeling of camaraderie instilled by playing in a large area filled with excited players, as well as the face-to-face interaction between groups and NPCs in that setting. The pandemic we currently face makes such gatherings problematic. Much D&D play has moved online, and that medium offers both challenges and opportunities.

Throughout this adventure, we provide sidebars to discuss and offer suggestions for porting the Epic experience to an online venue. Appendix D also contains a framework for running this Epic online.

When do you recommend running this in the 10-01 to 10-04 sequence? APL 2 would seem to indicate after 10-01, perhaps?

Has this changed significantly from the Premier version? I ran this at an event, and Part 3 as written is not survivable for most Tier 1 parties. Any advice on how to scale it for single table play? I'd like to know if the purchased version is more balanced before purchasing. Thank you!

The single-table advice for part 3 is "run as written". I can't remember if the motivational speech between part 2 and 3 was there then, but that certainly helps. Also a single table can interact with more NPCs in part 1, gaining more tools. Otherwise, no, it is not more balanced afaik. Running it timed will often avoid TPK, and clever (and lucky) tables might achieve a full success.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
