We tried that scenario once. We tried second time. All in vain. Instead of smoothly going through the locations, we were overwhelmed by the swarms of un-dead, being spawned again and again through dark magic of Acolytes. Do you remember how that looked like? Just see:

Almost like a zombie apocalypse movie…

However, we learned a lot since that time, increased levels of our characters and decided that enough is enough – we need to pass two very difficult Gloom scenarios – #28 and #29. And in one session! Below report from the first part of this attempt.

Our Gloomhaven Campaign in chronological order: 
#1 Black Barrow, #2 Barrow Lair, #3 Inox Encampment, #69 Well of the Unfortunate, #4 Crypt of the Damned, #5 Ruinous Crypt, #93 Sunken Vessel, #10 Plane of Elemental Power, #21 Infernal Throne, #14 Frozen Hollow, #19 Forgotten Crypt, #27 Ruinous Rift, #8 Gloomhaven Warehouse, #7 Vibrant Grotto, #20 Necromancer's Sanctum, #6 Decaying Crypt, #28 Outer Ritual Chamber, #94 Vermling Nest, #95 Payment Due, #13 Temple of the Seer, #16 Mountain Pass, #43 Drake's Nest, #18 Abandoned Sewers, #25 Icecrag Asent, #28 Outer Ritual Chamber (#3), #29 Sanctuary of Gloom, #55 Foggy Thicket, #56 Bandit's Wood, #72 Ozing Grove

Still, before going directly to the Session Report, some reminder as to the composition of our company – just before attempting scenario for the third time:

  • me – playing Doomstalker – currently level 6
  • Kuba J – playing Spellweaver – currently level 9
  • Kuba G – playing Tinkerer – level 7

And now we jump into the adventurous confrontation with Doom…

We know the drill – Tinkerer immobilizes the Zombies, Spellweaver casts almighty Inferno and my Angry Face initiates the Dooms plus permanent advantage
Acolytes closed on us, dealt some damage but fortunately did not spawn any living bones!
Isn’t it beautiful? So much damage dealt by our team in only one turn! (Exactly 71 HP)
Then, it was only matter of time when we finished off the inner chamber. Yes, we had some luck – no summons at all – but even with them we were prepared to quickly dispatch the enemies.
To the left – 3 Night Daemons.
To the right – 3 Sun Daemons.
And Kuba J decided we open both doors as we are super powerful and there is no need to waste time to clean them separately!
The other two of us were skeptical but you know what? He was right! We killed all of them with ease and finally finished that scenario. What a relief!
