Wow, how is this scenario supposed to be played in 4 hours? There are 5 combats, 6 role playing encounters, some with multiple skill checks involved, and a lengthy puzzle to resolve?
Several of the combats are exceedingly lengthy due to the special abilities of the baddies against a tiers 3-7 who are usually not prepared for this.
I mean literally this should be run in a 8 hour slot to fit it in properly.
I am known for running games fast and I had to skip 2 combats, call 2 combats early, and steer the party in the right direction several times just to get this one completed in 4.5 hours.
What happened to the initiative to improve PFS play by shortening scenarios to insure they fit in under 4 hours. please get back to the scenario shortening or I will no longer be able to schedule games at my local FLGS which has a hard 4 hour stop time.
For this scenario I'm going to have to decide to schedule this over 2 nights or pull it off the store schedule all together.
