For the first time since 1978, a Total Party Kill!

Or it should have been. But given that they are all first level in a points buy system, they could all regenerate their characters exactly as written. And a recurring nemesis is much better from a story perspective; so having reduced them all below zero hit points, and not being much better off itself, the dragon limps off to dog their footsteps in later adventures.Lessons for the party to learn when cornering a young white dragon in its lair:

  1. Don’t massacre all its minions, throw spears at it, and then try to negotiate afterwards.
  2. Don’t allow the party wizard to be stunned by dragon breath and then spend the rest of the encounter continuously failing his saving throw – do something about it.
