*****

I was not excited about Iron Gods and wouldn't have given myself the opportunity to enjoy Fires of Creation if not for being an adventure path subscriber. I picked up the book out of meager curiosity and have had a very difficult time putting it down. Neil Spicer is a fantastic writer and he has a great deal of support from the authors of other sections in this adventure. I especially enjoyed the pages describing the town of Torch and love the Ecology of the Android section. Nicely done Paizo!

Fun, but the story fell short.

****( )

Each combat was challenging, but I felt like story reached a dead end prematurely. We chose to handle one aspect of the scenario in (possibly) a less common way, and the GM did his best to accommodate with how the scenario was written. We read the section afterward and it is clear that this was a viable solution, but very little was written about it. I felt a little robbed that we couldn't report what we had accomplished, for better or worse, with a check box on the reporting sheet. Overall, I enjoyed playing this scenario.

Put your thinking cap on!

****( )

I enjoyed the freedom and mystery of the mission. I felt like our decisions mattered. The combats were tough and engaging, but perhaps punishing less experienced players. Even playing a character ignorant of Numerian technology, there was a great deal of lore and information. I look forward to GMing this.

Pick another scenario if you have the option.

***( )( )

The scenario tries to take on a couple different mechanic systems found in other scenarios. It keeps them short, but fails to deliver the magic. The writing and/or editing fails the GMs, whom has to compensate for sometimes poorly setup choices that PCs must make. I'd pick many other scenarios before GMing this a second time despite putting many hours into detailed preparations.

Tying Up Loose Ends

***( )( )

This scenario is going to get more appreciation out of those who have played many other scenarios over Season 5, and some before. I recommend it for that, but was not a fan of how it all came together. And perhaps it was too much to ask of any author. Our table certainly had fun, but I found myself distracted in-game by how some circumstances seemed forced and unlikely. A fitting end for Season 5 for a veteran PFS player, but not the best choice for a 7–11 for everyone else.
