I Saw Fireworks!!

*****

I liked this module a great deal when reading it, but it exceeded all of my expectations when I got to run it a couple of times for Free RPG Day.
Everything about this adventure is great, from the premise, to the pre-gen characters, to the challenges, to the right amount of detail on the NPCs... a winner all around.
The only thing that threw me a bit at first was the map for the major encounter area, but that was probably due to my comprehension rather than a fault of the adventure.
Highest recommendation!

My favourite of the line so far

****( )

A delightful collection of well-written stories by an author I was previously unfamiliar with.
A rarely seen niche - fantasy Americana. Really not a weak story in the collection, even with some of them being extremely short offerings.

The main reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that I am still struggling with the format. While the multi-column layout is true to the pulp origins of these books, I find it annoying. The interior art is fairly well-done, and the style actually meshes well with the style of the writing, but I still find the presence of the interior art an unnecessary distraction.

Still, an enjoyable read, and highly recommended!

Add my name to the list of those interested in the Silver John novels.

Try looking at it as a stand-alone adventure

***( )( )

I got to run the entire 3-part series in one day this past weekend. And I understand the disappointment when you look at this adventure as the conclusion of the triad.
However, I ended up running this for a group of 6 players, with 5 newcomers to PFS, and they had a blast! And when I looked again at the encounters, there are a couple of clever encounters - the "trap" and the subsequent role-playing one.
I can't go higher than 3 stars because it has to be looked at as part of the series, and because of the apparent stat errors, but there is still a fun scenario lurking here.

Have to disagree with the other reviews

****( )

Certainly, there are some flawed stories in this collection (for me, the worst was the Salvatore offering). However, the majority were surprisingly enjoyable, considering the premise. And I found the Q/A sections a valuable insight into the process of many great authors.
One note: some of the variance in quality may be attributed to the fact that these are first-published short stories, so some of the writers may have published novels prior to what is presented here.

Fun, Fast Escapism

****( )

A very enjoyable pair of stories that left me wanting more. Nothing complex, just well-written adventures. I am eagerly anticipating getting to The Ginger Star.
