Just got back from our first D&D session, and it went really well, up until the point where it slowly dawned on us that our experienced, accomplished DM was entirely serious about having our Level 1 party fight an Adult Red Dragon as the final boss of the first dungeon.
“wait, we’re running around this island preparing to face… a real adult red dragon? The men weren’t just exaggerating at what monster they saw?”
Nope, apparently they weren’t. And the DM isn’t going to let us level up until after the dragon fight, because the thought of having a level 1 party fight an adult red dragon just tickles him so much. We’re all just worried sick, 😂
