A Stargate Sandbox, Indeed...

****( )

Only play this with an experienced GM... It will greatly enhance your PFS experience...

I need to explain…

I played this adventure at OddCon UK, with a Venture lieutenant GM’ing… Convention uses Warhorn (Great App) so we could roughly see what the tables would look like on the day…

The opening RP encounter was fun… It provided a nice intro to the mod and didn’t set in stone the priorities of the module… This adventure seemed as though it was a sandbox…

Then it all went wild…

The adventure was somewhat misleading, it felt like an episode of Stargate SG-1… It then felt like a scavenger hunt… It left us confused as to the main outcome of the adventure… The storyline progressed but had you unsure to the paths you could take…

The combats were over very quickly except for the last… It’s a shame I enjoyed all the combats, though last combat I just wanted it to continue just a little longer…

The RP encounters were handled with great success… The presentation of the main threat felt like a threat and not a gimmick for this year’s story arc… The Pathfinder’s all found the exploration through deception and disguise an engaging aspect of the adventure… We all seemed disappointed it ended… We didn’t feel as though we had quite finished all we wanted to achieve in this adventure and it left us wanting another round…

I wanted to see is realistic fantasy storyline that gets you involved… and Kyle Baird presented a multifaceted adventure with a suitable challenge rating…

Please play this… It advances the ideals of the pathfinder society game and shows excellent execution from a writer, editor and campaign staff… Please again and again… This style of mod DOES further community gaming of PFS goals...

Though this did remind me of the Inauguration episode slightly...

This is a Fun Sponge!

*( )( )( )( )

Do not play this... It will ruin your PFS experience...

I need to explain…

Table Make up
Three players were 8th level
Three players were 9th level

I played this adventure at PaizoConUK, with an Ex-venture captain GM’ing… Convention rules meant that we played the 10-11 sub-tier (with a four player adjustment) and tables were premade by the convention organisers to provide balance…

The opening RP encounter with Farabellus was fun… It provided a nice intro to the mod…

Then it all went downhill…

The opening combat encounter was by far one of the worst opening combat encounters I’ve ever played… It has multi actioned monsters with an ability to automatic decide player action… not my idea of fun… I could go in to great detail about this fight but I’m not… The most annoying part of this fight was that you COULD avoid it… if your GM wanted you to…

I accidently saw one of the Convention organisers during a break and he asked how it was going… I then stated a TPK was about to happen and he went and had a word… I didn’t want the GM to pull punches… It was suggested to the GM that maybe he should lower the Tier to 7-8… He did after the first encounter…

The first encounter took nearly two hours, it drained the group… we didn’t want to continue…the GM fudged us into continuing… I was so done with it I returned to my hotel room for over thirty minutes to just rant at my partner…

After the dreadful first encounter, we continued… The more we found out about the narrative, the more we groaned… The storyline progressed as a low level module should have…

There was no love for continuing this adventure after surviving! Nobody truly was interested or invested in the story presented… It gathered all my fun, the other player’s fun too and became a Fun Sponge…

It was all about getting our Pokémon card, sorry Chronicle record…

I never want to see this replayed, I never want to replay this or GM this… I would actively seek for people to choose an alternative…

Having read many of the society supplements I find it hard to believe that this made it through as a high level mod… It is an ego stroke that shows that someone (the author knows how to bend the rules) has the upper hand… I’m not opposed to this but what I want to see is realistic fantasy storyline that gets you involved…

Kyle Baird is known from presenting a challenge but you have to sustain disbelief for this… Please never play this… It does nothing to advance any part of the pathfinder society game and shows poor execution from a writer, editor and campaign staff… Please never again… This style of mod doesn't further community gaming of PFS goals...

It reminds my of LG or LA mod but without a suitable story to back it up... It just poor and tiresome...

It destroyed our day… unless that was what was intended by the author…
