Cthulhu Dungeon crawl

***( )( )

Overall an enjoyable adventure but not a strong entry in the CC AP. The adventure starts off strong with investigation and memorable setting and NPCs. However, it then quickly slips into a hackfest as the party must essentially clear out 3 locations (albeit 3 interesting and well-written locations). There are some great encounters, lovecraftian references that help mitigate this but the adventure still feels like a missed opportunity in using the mythos. Additionally, the background is a muddle and needs to be streamlined. For DMs running this as part of CC I suggest you look on providing the party more motivation to be following the Dark Rider (perhaps some more fleshed out clues as to the Raven's Head) as a DM sticking to the written content may find players wondering why they're going to all this trouble.

Good but needs tweaking

***( )( )

First the Good:

1. A detailed overview of the arctic regions, compelling encounters (both combat and rp).

2. An interesting villain and arc to the journey.

3. Makes good use of the arctic setting

Constructives:

1. I do not recommend running this is as. I made many adjustments as I went along to fit the party and garner player interest.
2. The villain is unrelated to the bigger plot. I made her one of the Amatatsu who died on the journey and is now an angry spirit being used by Sithud.
2. Handwave the length of the journey (give a description of the hardships but wouldn't recommend grinding this journey out any further)
3. A lot should be cut out (as long as your handwaving xp points) so as not to drag.

Overall, my group enjoyed this trek. I would recommend cribbing from Under Frozen Stars if you want to add a dosage of SF to the adventure.

A fun trip

****( )

While I didn't use this adventure as written I did use a lot of material from it for my JR campaign. This is a great side trek if you and your players are looking to get your SF into your fantasy. Highly recommended eitehr as a written adventure or for a resource to plunder.

Frankenstein meets Law and Order

****( )

Finished running this last night, this adventure is a good blend of various styles and should appeal to most DMs and players. The concept is a great hook and got my players involved as they took on the defence of the Beast. For the DM the challenge in this adventure is striking a balance between mob hysteria and the fact the city is educated and still has an almost slavish respect for legal tradition.
The investigation and the villains in the first half are great. Where this adventure begins to lost a bit of its steam is in the last half while the party looks to locate the Beast's creator. The last encounter while memorable is pretty railroady. My group enjoyed it as I did open up some options (finding a few adamantine weapons and or distracting the opponent to loose the prisoner). Overall another high quality module.

Good but needs work

***( )( )

Overall, a good adventure and introduces the oni as a real threat. A good mix of Rp, investigation and hack n slash.

The investigation can get murky to the players and even with some massaging not all the links will be clear. Feel this adventure could have benefited from revisions and a better focus (i.e. this is the adventure where you smash a thieves guild). A very memorable final fight ends the adventure on a high point.
