I have just run this over a series of lunchtime at school; it's not ideal but after burning the lodge down and most of the staff in the process the party have escaped with the possessed painting, lost one member in the conflagration and have another unconsciousness. They are now fleeing through the woods with the sound of howling at their heels.
I am running this with the core set and four players with another wishing to join!
1) Should I get another core set or some other combination of books/vaults?
2) I need some ideas for short, discreet episodes that run in under an hour, are not all combat based (I want to squeeze more role-playing out of them) and add up to something meaningful when connected. ( they don't have any idea how dangerous/evil the painting is!)
