Encounter Details
What you need to know to prepare the PCs for this encounter.
 

The PC’s are being held Captive by the villain Brain Freeze. They are tied up with ropes hanging over these pits in the sewer filled with alligators. Also, the ropes holding them up have been smeared with peanut butter and the rats of the sewer are beginning to feast on it. In doing so the rats are also slowly eating through the ropes. And if that wasn't enough, the ropes are anchored with icicle spikes so they will eventually melt dropping the heroes in. Brain Freeze is sure that the heroes cannot escape this time!

Captive is a game term to signal that you have been captured. While being Captive players are limited in what they can do. For more details on being Held Captive, see the main Held Captive page.

  • Cannot use most Actions. Powers, Combat Maneuvers, and Basic Attacks cannot be used.
  • Can use Minor Actions. Basic Minor Actions are available such as speaking, eating, dropping items etc.
  • Can use Move Actions. A character may be able to move around depending on the situation.
  • Minus the Captive’s Tier to Defenses. As a Captive, characters suffer their Character Tier to all Defenses.

As they are hanging there, the goons begin to get bored and distracted. They start to say things like the following:

  • "They are not even screaming yet."
  • "Let’s take selfies!"
  • "Hehe! Oh look at this dank meme. Silly cat!"
  • "Get one of me putting on the peanut butter."
  • "Take a picture of me dabbing."
  • "Oh that is a fat rat."

Now the PCs can act since the goons are distracted. Describe in more detail what they see.

Ropes are also pegged in with icicles so even if the rats don’t do their job… the ice will eventually melt and drop them in.

The goons are not very smart and easily distracted. However, they will react if the PCs are too loud or do things to get their attention. They goal is for the PCs to be subtle about what they do so they can escape. However, if they are failing many rolls then the goons should notice them. As GM work to set up the failure and that the goons are going to drop them in the pit.
