I just finished running a D&D Encounters season 3 ep 11 session, and I'm dissatisfied with how it ended; I want to fix it next week with a bit of retroactive play before moving on to the finale.
Note: spoilers for episode 11 ahead!
So, my party did not wait for the spectre to speak beyond an initial bit of yelling; Eldeth's ability and tendency to move + charge 12 followed by some brutal clubbing pretty much put paid to any conversation. As a consequence, they were uninformed as to where the dwarven artifact was.
My session ended with a frustrated search for the artifact, unsuccessful due to a series of crap Perception checks combined with not looking in the right place.
I want to start the next session with a bit of a rewind, to wash the bad taste of the end of this one out of our collective mouths. What's a good way to run it?
(I've already had a suggestion of a skill challenge, but I'm not very good at setting that sort of thing up; if someone more experienced / capable could help...?)
