Okay, so I've been checking these forums off and on for like, two years now, and I've yet to run a campaign (Thursday night could change all that, though)--but here's one huuuge question I have:
How the hell do investigators take down big game?
For those of you who have run or participated in a campaign featuring creatures like the Dark Young, or a shoggoth, the shantaks, a dhole, etc.; how exactly did the investigators come out on top? Or did they? The way I see it happening, I guess that fighting a shoggoth would be likened to fighting a Gargantuan in the Half-Life games; killing it with bullets and weapons would be futile, but perhaps finding some sort of environmental solution would help (maybe discerning a Bind spell, or something along those lines.)
Please, share, I'm really curious to see how your run-in with a starspawn high priest turned out.
