I have been GMing for a party which includes a Wood Elf Wardancer, Middenheim Mercerary, Hochland Bounty Hunter, Dwarf Slayer and an Apprentice Death Wizard.
This party were high rank 1 characters. After the first session in which they fought multiple trolls which they defeated with more ease than I hoped. This is when they first meet "The Beast" which is a creature that they are planned to fight in the finale. The Dwarf Slayer playing in character rightly agitated the beast. The battle which occurred nearly saw a complete party wipe however, they were able to defeat the beast with some amazing at the death rolls.
This now has left me with a dilemma and need some help. I will now need to rework things to make the situations more difficult for them. Knowing that there will be a confrontation with the witches fenbeast and seeing the way that they dispatched 2 trolls with little effort. I need ideas on how to make this more challenging for the PCs… As well as some ideas to make my final confrontation with the Dark Elves more challenging for PCs.
I sometimes wonder if I am too easy on my PCs.
I guess any ideas how I can challenge my PCs would be appreciated. I must admit I am rather new to GMing however my PCs are quite competent players with within social aspects of roleplaying as well as bring in combat sequences. They work well as a team making it difficult to completely challenge them.
Any tips and ideas would be greatly appreciated.
