I haven’t followed Prince Valiant for quite a while now, but it seems this beast is on the rampage and Sir Galahad, “who thought little of the report of a dragon at large,” has found his knights badly overmatched. He is forced to call off the attack and fall back to Camelot to regroup and attempt to devise a plan to save the kingdom.
Sir Galahad. And knights from Camelot.
Kids, your little party of third level adventurers is going to have to make a run for it sometimes. It’s not the DM’s job to save your PCs’ skins when they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. Adventuring is for the courageous, but the foolhardy rarely last long.
