comment How can I prevent a TPK without obvious Deus Ex Machina?
I was thinking something along the lines of plans and loving how they come together, but that works too :)

comment How do I design exciting, fun boss fights for my players?
Oh, and the thunderstorm was an entity of pure chaos and had permanent game-changing effects on people each turn. One guy ended up with bear claws. Luckily nobody rolled sex change!

comment How do I design exciting, fun boss fights for my players?
Great answer. One of my most memorable boss fights made use of guesswork, terrain, and phases. He summoned multiple clones of himself all over the battlefield on each turn, and had the ability to swap places with clones. They died in one hit, but it kept the players guessing and moving. He also made zones of goo that started out small, but any time someone stood in or walked through it, it grew exponentially. Then once the boss got low on health he reversed gravity for everyone. The battle raged while falling up through a thunderstorm, and when they killed him, the party was a mile in the air!
