Beautifully crafted story marred by too many mechanics

***( )( )

There is so much to this scenario that is right, that it is a darn shame the wrong brings it down. I have played this scenario with my wayang cavalier, and read the scenario to prepare for running it in the future.

The plot is laid out in a sensible, if transparent manner. Each stage gives plenty of chances for interaction with the NPCs and exploration of the themes of wayangs. There is enough combat to suit the tactical players and built in characterization for the fights. (Being directed to be unpredictable and confusing was very enjoyable for my CN cavalier.)

The problems come from the vagueness of the story and the maligned verbal duel rules. There just isn't space to give enough fodder for the players to work with, a fault of writing constraints, and the inclusion of dense mechanics cuts that space down even further. Players need to be prepped for this scenario, a practically unforgivable sin for an adventure that needs to be accessible to players just walking up to the table for the first time. Assault on the Wound benefited slightly from not allowing 1st level characters and was still a black mark. To Seal The Shadow is stained even further by lacking that compensation.

I love this story. I hate the hoops required to enjoy it. This is one of the few scenarios I honestly never want to run.

Nice kickoff for Season 6

****( )

Played at subtier 1-2 with a party of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd level PCs. Overall enjoyed the lead-up to the first fight and had a fine time with it. (Opening with a crit on the monster helped.)

The Silver Crusaders were all over the NPC encounter, and having a non-combat resolution was appreciated.

The full complex was smartly designed and fairly challenging overall. Acting out our characters cluelessness at the tech was amusing.

I have yet to get a chance to review the higher subtier or GM it, so more opinions may be forthcoming.
