So, as I begin to write the Goblins of Mord Mar tournament module, I am reviewing some early design decisions. Most have held strong through the year plus of design and playtesting. The 'Meave' has not, however. I find that it has to be abolished. It is counteractive to what a megadungeon is supposed to be. It gives the players a distinct advantage, and needs to go.
It simply didn't exist. I'm not sure what ramifications this will have on the playtest. I don't think any players will be slighted by this decision. Even if they are, this is the nature of a playtest.
