I liked it! I knew that the plague was a Red Mantis plot from the beginning from my run of RotRL, so that part wasn't a surprise. I always enjoy seeing the recurring characters you bring in - it means a lot more when it's a character we know and we're personally involved with that has something bad happen to them, rather than a character introduced by the AP for the express purpose of having that bad thing happen to them.
I think the only real communication break down occurred when we didn't take a moment to breathe between the investigation of the Direption, the manor house scene, and the assault on Doctor
Nicholas Cage's Develaus' infirmary. We were running on fumes there, and I think some of us thought we were more rested than we were. We survived, but it probably got lost in the shuffle. Maybe we should start including the in-game date in our posts, just so we're all on the same page on when this is happening?
Also, I assume you're aware of the new reveal of Rolth's identity put forth in the revised CotCT? >:)
