The Big Bad in Hall of Judgment is designed to pose a serious threat vs a party of four to six prepared delvers. One power in particular should be turned "off" if you're doing a two-person adventure; it should be fairly obvious which one it is!

Yes I did, you're right. I did start another thread where I asked specific advice on how to tone ISAR for swash and a cleric:

But you're completely correct that both adventures seem quite hard for smaller crew.

Very good ideas, thank you!

Shameless self promotion #1 - Hank will mostly hang out in the back unless needed to heel.

As such I'm leaning more towards toning down the opposition instead of increasing the number of characters.

Shameless self promotion #2 - Encounter at 10 Crown Caves is a relatively "easy" DF dungeon, especially if you cut the numbers a bit. There are bonus printable battlemaps if you use minis.
