Leveling and the encounters we face feel crap. Honestly the under dark is a most dangerous and deadly place in the mortal planes and they send us there as level 3 down. Sry but this is crap. That would be area for level 5-8 at minimum. It cheapens the experience. Beholders and other monoesters that are at home down there feel like cheap knock offs not even worth the fuzz made around them. I think the priority's of encounters and places where chosen poorly.
Not to mention that the "stakes" of our adventure from Tee start are astronomical something you send half gods to deal with.
It feels wrong and bad.
