Lots of potential, but lackluster combat

***( )( )

I really enjoyed playing this module, I had a character that was right at home and was able to role-play through much of the module.

Combat was a bore. Even our little (four member) party defeated all the combats with nary a scratch.

Short module length limited the back story, description, and enemies so much that it felt two-dimensional.

Overall, I was disappointed because I saw the potential in the module. It seemed like a 5-star module was shoe-horned to fit a 3-star formula.

Same Setting--New Adventure

****( )

The adventurers return the Blakros museum for more fun and mayhem. Lacks substantial role-playing possibilities (good or bad depends on your particular bent). Interesting combats that will keep the players on their toes. Some perhaps deadly for the unprepared or fool-hardy.

Look forward to running this module again.

Only downside is that non-linear possibilities might result in an anti-climatic finish.

Oh snap!

**( )( )( )

I really want to like these. They look cool and are useful. I was disappointed at first because they didn't even include instructions. Had to look at the photos to figure it out. A simple line drawing would be sufficient and wouldn't mean a trip to the computer during assembly.

Assembly isn't difficult, but you need to make sure the top and bottom are parallel when drying. Don't stand them up, rather assemble with them laying on their sides. Mine started to sag and unfortunately the glue had dried before I noticed. Snapped off the tab when I tried to reposition it. I was able to fix it.

The c-shape is great for round based plastic minis. My pewter square base didn't sit well. You can flip them upside down which helps. But the stand seemed to sag a little under the weight of a 'real' mini.

What I was most disappointed with was while the acrylic seemed to have the right balance between flexibility and stiffness neither of two I bought survived the first game session intact. Dropping one on a concrete floor resulted in three pieces.

I don't think I'm exceptionally ham-fisted when it comes to this stuff, but I don't think these guys will withstand anything but the lightest use for any length of time. Accidents do happen at the table, eventually someone will drop one when moving it.

Who knows I might give these guys a second chance after I see how well the repaired ones hold up to real-life usage.

Even at 99 cents it's lacking

**( )( )( )

The main character sheet is basically the free Paizo character sheet without the large black blocks for section titles, plus a big Louis Porter logo (that I could do without). Oddly, there are two sections labeled feats on the backside (probably a typo as the free sheet has special abilities in one of the places).

Inventory sheet is rather plain but functional. The Magic Item Location is included at the bottom of the sheet. Another silly mistake here 'circlet' is mispelled and if you have two finger slots why only one blank line for both? If my understanding is correct there should also two slots for head and headband; as well as body and chest as they are seperate slots in PFRPG.

Unless I am a supermunckin, I don't need a single sheet that covers every spellcasting class in the game. I will only use a small portion of that sheet at a time.

Campaign notes, events, and contacts/alliances are all on one sheet so likely you will have some filled up and others completely blank.

One useful additon not mentioned in the product info is a set of condition cards.

I also had to upgrade my Adobe Reader as it crashed when looking at the tokens.

Overall, I doubt I will be using it much and I'm sorry to say I can't really justify spending even 99 cents on it.
