Fantastic supplement, by and large, but I found that the first questline had some really unbalanced moments (taking up to 4d10 damage climbing the mountain - reliant on skill checks to avoid that are likely to be taken at disadvantage due to exhaustion - at level 2 is essentially lethal).

Hi Benjamin

Thanks for the review. I can certainly see your point, although I feel like you have to be very unlucky to suffer the full 4d10 and take enough damage for it to be instantly lethal. In our tests, a character took the full damage once, and was knocked unconscious, but not instantly killed (and the players had fun digging him out before he bled out). That being said, I don't think there's anything wrong with reducing the damage to 4d6 or 3d10 damage to make it less lethal – especially if your characters are on the fragile side. I'll consider making the change when we do our first overhaul of the document.

Thanks for the constructive feedback, and I'm glad you otherwise enjoyed the supplement :)
