First time as a player in over a year and a half, and we had a TPK 90 minutes into it.
Let me back up for a sec. James Spahn is out DM for a Swords and Wizardry Complete campaign that kicked off in Bard's Gate. The other players are Skeeter Green, Jim Wampler and Rocky & Ian from Silver Bulette Publishing. The presence of the Frog God was strong.
In any case, we were exploring Matt Finch's Tomb of the Iron God and we came across a black ooze. Closed the door and decided to come back later. Found embalming fluid and decided to return.
We had a good plan. We had devastating results.
We doused the ooze in elbalming fluid. It retreated. Woot. We lit the embalming fluid. Actually, embalming fluid isn't flammable, the gases it gives off IS, however.
And you thought first level characters couldn't cast a fireball.
Black ooze - dead.
Party - Dead.
We have two weeks before the next session. Time to reroll.
This was the best TPK ever! I love the OSR :)
