A much misaligned gem of a module

*****

I find myself in a rather odd position, having read all of the other reviews, I am a little confused. Other reviewers stated that the combat components have the potential to kill players, is that not what a good encounter should do, without risk there is no reward, surviving some of the encounters by the skin of your teeth, gave me a wonderful sense of achievement.
They also say that the module is combat heavy, when combined with the setting this makes sense. Mr Goodall creates a wonder tapestry of background, locations and characters in an area very rarely utilised. Characters won’t know everything about the socio-economical, historical and political structure like they would with Absalom and its real world counterpart shares the same situation. Mr Goodall in putting in lots of combat, while still putting in role-playing opportunities means that everything gets to do something while sitting at the table.

To sum this all up this module sits in my top 5 RPG modules I have played EVER.
Exotic setting, check.
Great moments, check (all of the battles were memorable)
A great game that makes you want to play any and everything Mr Goddall has written, is writing and will write in the future, check
5/5 stars
