Hmm...your party is supposed to start with no equipment at all, right? So I ditched all possessions from the party I imported, beat up the
Trump supporters goblinoid horde and got some mundane weapons, and then the second encounter is friggin' Wights, who can't be hurt by mundane weapons? Luckily my Cleric was able to turn them, though.
EDIT: just noticed there were more than one page in this thread, and I missed the thing about pregens being required, so I will quit playing this module (default version) for the time being, and give it another try with the pregens another time.
