The best gaming experience in my entire life

*****

This is one scenario is worth every hour I poured into a level twelve character. The story is phenomenal, but get the BEST GM you can find and it will blow you away. The combats are extremely religious but the plot is the real kicker here. At the end of this scenario, my paladin (and I) almost had a nervous break down. Play this scenario and you will never look at PFS the same way.

Fat Elf, Little Dwarf

*****

I have played this scenario at teir 8-9. I have not read this nor have I GMed it. The GM was good and tried his hardest to make it a challenge.

I would rate this at a 4.5, so I'll over shoot.

Pros

Setting: So we are in the thick of season 5, Mendev, world wound. Same stuff. However, this might be the best dungeon crawl I have played in the society.

Role Play: Despite it being a dungeon crawl, the paradoxical nature of one set of creature (you will know them when you see them) can provide an interesting and complex role play. Or you can try and just stomp them.

Encounters: So no mundane races. More monsters the better. The Demons were unconventional and the last encounter is well done.

Prize: A holy hand grenade of Antioch...sign me up. The boons are well thought out.

Mission: This. More of it. beating the end boss is not enough and for once in the players life it matters if you are good.

Con

Puzzle: I know, everyone is ranting about this. Despite this fact it was a fantastic puzzle, yet the mechanics were flawed.

Refuge of Awesomeness

****( )

I have played this scenario at tier 10-11.I have read it and ran it at a convention. We ran out of time, but that was less of the scenarios fault and more of people not wanting to compromise on issues.

I would rate this at a 4.5

This was written by Steve Miller, who I met at Gen Con 2012. He was one of the judges I remembered the most with his use of outside material.

Spoilers abound

Pros

Role Play: So, you have to deal with an angel, which is challenging, especially for morally gray people who covet there spell slots from their magic items. It was good fun and baffling to the players that an Angel was even there. This is something that needs to be done, but rarely happen and it was one of the most risky but rewarding parts of the scenario. As a "gate keeper" he is a fore of disequilibrium, which is highlighted and contrasted with the fact that they are going to a shrine of Lissila. Well played.

Encounters: All the encounters were interesting, challenging and engaging. High level wizards are no joke, the knight was a suprising house, I thought people would just blow through him, however, he almost tpk them. The Boo is a threat but I really wish it was drain instead of damage. I want to thank everyone right now for the more monster centric I have ever seen in the society. I am quite pleased

Traps: I liked the wheel of Fortune, even if the player who got a boon from it was upset.

Prize: I don't know what Paizo is doing, but Admiral Ackbar would have something to say about this, and people are biting hook line and sinker. A fantastic boon.

Faction Missions: Weird to Hilarious, Taldor can have a great RP experience, Osirion, like always has the wackiest. As a member of the Silver Crusade my faction mission was pretty sweet.

Meh:

Setting: Varisia, as if you couldn't of guessed in a season 4 scenario. Wyvern Mountains. Nothing really special.

Mission: Simplistic, which isn't bad, but the encounters is what makes this scenario shine

Con:

Mooks: There are way too many of them in the finale fight with six people, I would suggest maybe only 3 and bumping them to level 9. Make them cavaliers, inquisitors or something other than standard fighters. I wish to see more Inquisitors, Cavaliers, Summoners , and Magus.

Spell selection: So I liked a lot of his spell selection, however, a quickened Glitterdust is far more powerful than a quickened acid arrow. I would have appreciated black tentacles and I am sadden by the fact that most of the season 4 stuff has stayed away from it.

In conclusion, Steve Miller has done great service to Paizo, by making a memorable and tough scenario which is on my top five favorites. I look forward to the next scenario he comes out with.

I LOVE the Sanos Forest

****( )

I have played this scenario at teir 6-7. I have not read this nor have I GMed it. The GM was average, he didn't softball which was nice.

I would rate this at a 4.5

Pros

Setting: This was my first romp through the Sanos forest and it was delightful. Gnomes! Fey! Undead! The characters were great, the lush gnome was freaking hilarious, along with Readywhipple or whatever, he was a blast.

Role Play: Sandboxish, Yes. Readywhipple provides all the entertainment you need for a game.

Encounters: Bravo Paizo, Bravo. These fights are becoming the real deal. Sure we had a fighter with an AC of 31 so nothing could touch him, however, Will saves suck. Tons of interesting monsters, with niffty tactics. Not a single freaking lame human/elf. Hats off guys.

Prize: What a wonderful boon. This is great, and rewarding, even if I can't use it on the character. However, this is the type of incentive to allow characters to create history. You guys are getting really good.

Mission: This. More of it. beating the end boss is not enough.

Con

Faction Mission: I was SC. It was a huge let down, and sort of. "Find the cookie".

Blakros Gold!

****( )

I have GM this scenario at teir 1-2. I have not Played it. If I could, I would give it 4.5.

Pros

Setting: I can always count on the Blakros to bring the flavor and it has been brought'n. After some time role playing, going to the Tower is a great change of pace. The entire story is rich and engaging with few logical hang ups. Excellent job with the flavor.
