Hoard of the Dragon Queen - The Hunting Lodge

So, we have made it to the lodge!
Episode 7 has started and I feared for a TPK in the first encounter, yes I was slightly concerned that the 4 armed beast that was Trepsin and his loyal guard of ambush drakes would be too much for the party too handle. But as always I ploughed on regardless and didn't change the encounter one bit.

So this has led me to a conundrum, is this dungeon too easy for the party, should I start up-statting the dungeon and encounters to make things a bit more challenging? Well we will see this Saturday, once again I will be behind the "all knowing" DM screen but I will be running the dungeon for a slightly reduced group. One of our number is away on holiday and another friend is only able to play for half the day.
