This might be one of the climactic battles of the campaign. Or it might be horribly anticlimactic.
I'm so nervous. I feel horribly underprepared--although it's not clear that there's any amount of prep that would make me feel really prepared.
I have the advantages necessary for a decent game--in particular, the support of willing and enthusiastic players. But I want this session to be perfect.
To do that, I need both good tactics and gameplay and compelling descriptions and good NPC dialog. It's a daunting task, but I'm going to do my best.
My players have all expressed some worry about getting overwhelmed in this battle; I've been worrying about not being able to land a hit. This may indicate that things are balanced. :-/
I'm crossing my fingers hoping this goes well.
