Critical Hits #24 ? None Shall Pass
an encounter by Simon Lucas
Encounter Level 7
Critical Hits is a series of fantasy encounters created to be dropped into any existing campaign as an interesting diversion from the main storyline or played as a single evening's entertainment. This popular range of products provides DM and player alike with unusual and interesting, sometimes comical but always memorable encounters.
None Shall Pass opens as the characters approach the edge of a wide ravine. Stretched across it is a long thin rope bridge; a precarious, exposed crossing at best. There is more for the PCs to worry about however in the form of the band of travelers that has pitched camp at the edge of the ravine. Their sole purpose is extracting cash from wanderers by challenging them to a series of tests and competitions. Play the games and pay up, and the party are free to cross the bridge. Fail to enter into the spirit of the proceedings and None Shall Pass!
