Having played a few more times (its now on the Dime list), I’m saddened to announce that sometimes the game is a cakewalk and sometimes it’s nigh impossible; After getting trounced by Advanced Apostate with random characters and getting a bad mix (Argent Adept, Mr. Fixer, Fanatic & Expatriette) we tried again with the Multiverse’s equivalent of the Justice League (Haka, Wraith, Legacy and Ra) AND switched the fight from Rook City to Realms of Discord.
That was a bit too much and Apostate whimpered away.
I’m still working on a good feel for how to balance it. But I think I’ll let the TaoLing pick first … and if he picks great characters, I’ll pick weaker ones and vice versa. That should help.
But despite this complaint it’s still a suggest.
