yes! more of this, less of that other!

****( )

This book is good. You get to Starfall, you get to do stuff in Starfall, and then you do stuff in a building in Starfall which is totally not named on the cover of the book. This is quality stuff. I just wish they'd taken that first bit, the stuff in Starfall, and made it its own book, cutting either Scrapwall or the Valley or, better yet, all the filler crap in both. Starfall is where the action is, it's where we want to be, and we just don't get to spend enough time in it. :(

good ideas, lots of filler

***( )( )

Blah blah blah, horrors from beyond the stars.

Look, there's some fun stuff here. There's some great information on an important faction in the AP, and one side encounter that's just creepily well conceived. Unfortunately there's just so. much. filler. The entire book takes place in one geographic location, and most of the action exists to justify that, rather than advancing the overall plot of the AP.

ups and downs

***( )( )

The town was bad, the dungeon was good. The tower was good conceptually, but it dragged in the middle. Meh.

this book suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks

*( )( )( )( )

Pointless mechanics duplicating extant systems, MMO-style grinding, side missions that do squat for the overall narrative of the AP, and one glaring problem with the setting:

What do they eat?!

Spoiler:
There is no indication of how Scrapwall functions as a society. It's piles of rubble and a bunch of people shanking each other. No farms, no merchants, no trade. It's a dungeon but it's full of people who have no way to survive. No me gusta.

good stuff

*****

This is an excellent start to the Iron Gods AP. The events of this book introduce the key players quite well, via an interesting story and a fun adventure. Things are weird, but there aren't any moments that feel like filler.
