I just wondered if other groups felt that way or if it was just how our group played through it where it seems like a design flaw. It could be that we just did it a bit differently and the adventure is well designed after all. But I don't see it yet.

Unfortunately, I think that the AP has conflicting goals. On one hand, it is supposed to be a chase. On the other hand, it is full of sidequests. Both suffer. The chase gets lost in the sidequests, and the sidequests seem spurious and the locations don't get fully developed because the PCs are supposed to get back to the chase.

1. Guns in my fantasy.

2. The smorgasboard effect that has been commented on. Too many wildly different countries abutting one another in a very small space, with not much sense of an overarching geopolitical situation or much interaction between the nations.

3. The setting feels very modern in terms of society, tech, and customs. I always imagined Greyhawk as a very Medieval setting, Forgotten Realms as somewhat closer to the Rennaisance, and the inner sea feels closer to the Enlightenment. I like my fantasy more Medieval, or even better, ante-historical.

It's great though, for a setting in which you've got anything you want, all in one place, if you can separate the OCD part of yourself that wants to organize and explain everything.

I was also puzzled by this, but saw where folks can earn trust by "respecting the townsfolk" and so have been awarding trust for good roleplaying convincing the Sheriff to trust them, etc. Also the party Ragner was determined to gain entry to the temple of Pharasma's records, and so has been having nightly "Pray-offs" with Father Grimburrow to see who can kneel in devotion the longest. (I have them both make fortitude saves vs. excessive prayer.) I've been awarding him a trust point for each evening. It is also a great way to break up the party in preparation for some zombie shenannigans.
