The eldest daughter of the prominent Blakros family is set to wed an influential Hellknight, and the Pathfinder Society is invited to the festivities. Dressed for a wedding befitting royalty, a team of Pathfinders attend the ceremony on behalf of the Decemvirate, but will their presence ultimately strengthen the Society's relationship with the influential Blakroses, or will events at the wedding bring the already tenuous alliance to a breaking point?

Written by Thurston Hillman.

Role play, Not roll play.

*****

I have both played and run this adventure, and I had a great time each time.
I made sure each player had something to do. Role playing involves character interaction. Not everyone is a consummate actor, so the GM will have to do a little encouraging to get the "roll players" to do something.
The final encounter can be difficult, but it can be overcome with team work and a little luck.


The worst

*( )( )( )( )

(Should mention in advance that we played low-tier) This adventure was totally unbalanced, and probably the dullest scenario I've played out of around a hundred of them. Those of my players who happened to bring a good face-character, or a skill monkey, got to play. Otherwise, they were ignored for literally hours while other players described in excruciating detail how they talked to dinner guests.

There are literally two fights, and they're short, pathetically easy and just about pointless. I don't know about your group, but my group was bored to the bone by this one. The only guy who had any fun was the cleric, who did all the talking.

If you like to throw dress-up mystery parties, you might like this scenario. If you're not into that, steer well clear!


An exceptional roleplaying scenario

*****

My perspective on this scenario is as a player (and I'm set on GMing it as soon as I get the chance). For reference, I played it in the lower subtier (3-4). Be warned, spoilers may follow!

Story
An interesting premise indeed: our explorer/monster slayers will face their greatest challenge yet as they are about to... attend a wedding! Even as you get there, the story unfolds if you pay attention, small clues may give you hints of what is happening or is about to happen... and all hells break loose! I also love how this foreshadows the whole Paracountess arc.
Story score: 5/5

Roleplay
Probably one of the most intensive roleplaying scenarios ever written (with the exception of Mr. Pett's incredibly great Sixfold Trial), this will give your diplomancer a memorable experience meeting the highups of Golarion.
Roleplay score: 5/5

Encounters
Not much combat here, but they're all very distinctive and interesting. Fighting without what you usually take for granted really makes this scenario a rich experience.
Encounters score: 4/5

Mechanics
I loved the influence/discovery mechanics but the fact that we had a few very high social skills characters combined with the rule that allows to gain additional influence if you bypass the DC by 5 made the influence phase incredibly easy. However, with more balanced parties it may be necessary to make things doable but a party of six steamrolled the diplomacy phases. Honestly, it would have been interesting to see an adjustment similar to the ones for 4-player parties for the influence phases as well (such as suggesting to drop the "additional influence points for high rolls" rule)
Mechanics score: 3/5

I love roleplaying, and I must admit the roleplaying-centric scenarios aren't too common. This one is a gem, not only for season 4's storyline but also for a memorable roleplaying experience.
Total: 5/5


Great Role-playing scenario.

*****

I've GM this scenario and I can only said that is one of my favorites. Role playing it's a must to successfully pass it. My party were formed by 3 paladins and 1 witch and the final encounter was too easy for them.

On the bad side, players who love combat-oriented scenarios should avoid to play it. I had one player who were asking to roll for initiative every five minutes, showing with his attitude that he was getting boring of talk too much with no fighting. Rest of players enjoy the experience, even those who didn't have a social oriented character.
