A little rough around the edges, but fun.

****( )

I played this in the high tier with a skill focused party.

I have a few complaints with the scenario, the largest being the huge variation in awareness points that comes from adding a new player. It causes the difficulty to be uncomfortably variable if you don't have the exact same party which to me feels contrary to the drop in/ drop out model of PFS play.

That being said, the adventure overall is wonderful and stands as one of my favorites. The fights feel unique, there is enough exploration and historical info to assuage the non combat minded, and there was one event which I will not spoil that had the players literally standing and cheering.

Overall I highly reccomend the scenario but I suggest playing part 1 first with same group to minimize the difficulty variability.


One of my favorites

****( )

One of the few PFS scenarios that takes place primarily outdoors. It has epic fights and a unique setting. The last battle is huge and had us laughing so hard we could barely finish it. It's RP light and combat heavy which fit the tastes of the table we had.

It may not be perfectly written but it is a lot of fun and that's all the matters.

Awesome idea, but finicky to pull off

****( )

The concept of the adventure is really awesome; there's some brutal stuff in the last battle, and it'll be hard on everyone.

That said, the whole adventure has some tricky mechanics to it. The GM who ran it for us was a great performer, but was a bit fuzzy with rules. For example, the first encounter has terrain that mitigates some of the enemy's advantages, but he didn't use that map but one that didn't hamper the enemy that much.

The big end fight also has a lot of interwoven mechanics. If you correctly apply all of them it should give players the clues they need to avoid certain Don'ts, and the whole thing is hard but survivable.

Big fights, big surprise

****( )

The best summary for this scenario is the following: if you like playing Pathfinder and like 'big' surprises, you're going to really enjoy this one. Commenting on that any further would be ruin the experience. Suffice to say it's probably one of the best plot twists I've encountered thus far.

That said, this scenario is an interesting end for a two-part story arc. Compared to the first instalment, this scenario offers far less role-playing and way more fighting. The fights, I may add, are rather challenging. The first encounter can result in the death of a party-member easily. The final fight(s) has certain parts that are easier than others, balancing it out nicely.

The fights and the big surprise are enjoyable and truly memorable, I can not rate this scenario higher than 4 stars. The reason for that is because there's hardly any role-playing since you'll be going from one fight to another. Twice during the scenario I felt a bit disappointed there was no real interaction with NPC's and as such it had somewhat of a negative impact on the overall experience. Still, I highly recommend playing this scenario to anyone else.
