Im interested spidey. Ok here's the first question. How in the world do you read that Challenge Rating table?? Here's my scenario. Me and my friends fight a Zodack challange rating of 8 or 9 or used to be. I take its head in one slash. Next encounter was just one level higher. water elemental i believe. Royally thrashes use. Takes our equipment as loot and our party wakes up later naked and helpless. What's the dealee-O?
