Not a new DM but having difficult playing out what Nezznar will do. First, he is not stupid. Second He knows what the players are doing do to his network of spies and last the players let a Bugbear getaway that was part of a group of wandering monsters in Wave Echo Cave around the area 3. One must assume that any Bugbear in WEC is working for Nezznar and would warn him Immediately. So what to do! My first instinct is that he would send his minions to ambush the player somewhere in the Western portion of WEC. Areas 2,10, 17 and 18 or the intersection of areas 10 & 11. Possibly if they leave the cave to rest in area 1. My second thought is that he may leave to recruit others in the fight. The only drawback is how does he get out of the mine. any thoughts anyone?
