Simple dungeon crawl, good learning scenario

****( )

Most of the scenario is a standard dungeon crawl, with the required straps.
The opportunities for roleplaying are low, although you can improvise a lot with the human mooks.

Where I think this scenario will really shine, is as a learning scenario for new players. There are several devils in this scenario, giving them an insight into monster types and their resistances.
It also has a couple of interesting bottlenecks, which need teamwork and good tactical decisions to overcome.

Summery: classic dungeon crawl. Boring for veterans. Really good for new players.

my first one


This was the first scenario I ever played. I enjoyed the plot and the monsters and found that it was the perfect combo of murder and plotting.
Since I have grown with experience and learned more about pathfinder, I have realized how well this was written.

A pleasant surprise

****( )

I had my hesitations about running this after Assault on the Wound, but I enjoyed the game in spite of my expectations.

The combats are reasonably challenging, particularly at lower levels. The narrow corridors and lack of maneuverability force the party into interesting tactical decisions. The final encounter had the party positively seething as they finally overcame it. A true challenge for their level, without being blatantly overwhelming.

There is not a large amount of opportunity for roleplay in this scenario, but what little is there fits naturally and even caught my group off guard.

Standard dungeon crawl

***( )( )

Pretty average dungeon crawl. There are some interesting storyline elements which sadly never make it to the players. Pretty good if you're into that sort of thing.

Standard Dungeon crawl

***( )( )

I found nothing innovative with this scenario. A standard dungeon crawl with standard traps and monsters. Some roleplay elements for a crawl is nice, but they are minor and easy.

I would have liked something unique and new, but for a 3 tier scenario is alright.
