Love the Dragon, hate the assembly.

***( )( )

My dragon came and was intact, it's beautiful and I can't wait to spring it on my players. However, it does come in four pieces much like some of the other bigger figs. I didn't realize that so MUCH force was going to be required to assemble it. I held it by the base and tried to snap-in the tail. I succeeded at the "snap" part, as I snapped one of the feet of the dragon off the base. From there on I was much more careful with the fig. The packaging does state that it's for 14+! (I am considerably more than 14 at this point).

I don't have any problems with the bigger figs coming in parts to be assembled, but it would be good if there was some online videos or PDFs of how that assembly should occur. Is that with some gorilla glue or are the supposed to stay stuck without any help? I have a few of these large figs that that wings keep falling out (Skeletal Dragon I'm looking at you).

I gave it 3 stars not for the fig (I love the fig) I gave it 3 stars because of the lack of assembly instructions.

Played this with a wonderful judge, had lots of fun. NEED a GM with lots of roleplay abilities I can see why it has to be a 4-star or more to pull it off.

Spoilers below!

Like several of the reviews above. There were so many red flags with the child that she never made it 10-ft from where she started. I think for anyone that's played lots of PFS the setup was too similar to other mods. We EXPECT any major-follow-the-PC's-through-the-mod NPC's met to stab us in the back. The second the kid said, "I'm going with you." Into the dark scary demon filled basement that was it. We knew. I know it's meta, but it practically slapped you in the face. You don't GET to be a higher than 1st level Pathfinder Society member without a healthy, well earned dose of paranoia. After that revelation there's the game of how to you prove the kids isn't what she says she is. All sorts of fun/trouble was (and was had) figuring that out. I don't think that was the writers intention, but it WAS fun.

We did the optional because the GM liked it, it links to year 5 plot nicely and we had two hours left to kill (figuratively speaking). It was a pain, but we slogged along and managed it. Without a daylight spell and without darkvision. It would have been NICE to have those. Three dispel magic's into it we realized that wasn't going to work, but by then the bad guys were cornered.

I gave it four stars because while I don't "think" it went the way the writer wanted, it was fun and very differently paced than any other PFS mod I've ever played with the boss up front (well nearly). It sure made the GM earn his keep.

Combat but non-linear

****( )

Just played this at GenCon 2013. It had some fun combats and a nifty NPC or two. It's setup with some nice non-linear choices as the plot develops. There IS combat, but the players have some choices over when, how and most importantly IF.

Missing a bit of the "ooh ahhh"

***( )( )

Played the event at a level 5-6 table with a level 7 (barb5/ftr2) grapple-monkey PC.

Seemed like while there WAS a battle going on, it felt like the PC's always got grabbed to do some side quest rather than getting to the battle (on the walls or in city streets or outside the city). Other people I talked to at the con after the slot had this feeling as well so it wasn't just my table.

Encounters we had were good, but the event was mechanically lacking in the "Ooohhh aaaahhhh" of a big show event. Maybe this is so that it plays well at home or at smaller shows with fewer tables. I guess I expected mass fighting in the streets and more and larger scale battles. We had an encounter in the street but with no seeming connection to other groups. I very much enjoyed playing last years at GenCon special (Race for the Runecarved Key) where other tables could effect our table. I really liked that. It gave the feeling that we were all in it together even if you couldn't directly "see" the other PC's.

The end encounter was OK with the rescue part. At least I was AT the battlefield if not actually participating in the battle. We got was rescue duty. Sigh.

Gave it three stars because I've played every special (usually at GenCon) and feel like I have something to compare it too. This was OK. Prolly run great at a home/small con venue. You'll get the same experience we got at GenCon (maybe minus the overhead map? but your mileage may vary if your con organizer puts one up). The changing map they used at GenCon WAS pretty nice. It'd be cool to have the as a downloadable map app for people running that slot! That would be very cool for home/small con play.

Thanks,

Kizan

Very fun!

****( )

My group spent 28 months, rotating 3 DMs and used the (then new) Pathfinder rules. We had a blast! We even did a 3D battle map of the final battle complex

Good fun. Does a nice job of taking PC's from 1 to 20 with strong ties to an interesting city! No real global politics and only some plane hopping as you neared the end. Lots of interesting bad guys and lots and lots of local politics!
