The Northgate Siege

The guards positioned here are caught off-guard by the attack, and some have already been injured or killed by the time the party arrives. I suggest the following encounter for a party of five adventurers:

Total: 2,900 xp (Level 11 Encounter)

PC Objectives

PCs who complete one of the following objectives during this encounter gain the listed benefit.

  • Squad Leader: When the Stone Giant (not the Strongarms or Scout) is reduced to 0 hit points or fewer, each PC regains the use of an expended encounter power. In addition, the PC who dealt the final damage regains the use of a second expended encounter power.
  • No Distractions: If the encounter is completed before the end of the fifth round of combat, each PC regains the use of all encounter powers with the Healing keyword.
  • The Guards' Cheers: When the encounter is completed, each PC regains the use of up to two expended encounter powers of their choice, and may spend a healing surge (even if unconscious).
By the time the fight concludes, the party begins hearing sounds of stone giant mayhem coming from Tanner's Bridge. Their next encounter lies there.
