Alright, so I have a couple problems with the first book of this AP.
1) A TON of data to relay to the PCs, without any help from the published module. When the "app" has a map of the place, well, by golly, my PCs want the map! And then there are 50 locations on the map, that are described in the text, but I'm not going to spend 4 hours going "Oh, A-3, yeah, that's another bar, with a 50s lounger's feel." And I can't just cut and paste 3 pages of the mod and give it to the PCs, because there are spoilers in there. This is just a rough way to start the whole adventure.
2) The NPCs. How about a picture of the whole group of Buzzblades? How about a nice summary of the NPCs in a location where I can just read it all off, or even a handout. Because, again, there's a ton of info, descriptions, etc, but I can't just cut and paste it because I don't want the PCs to know, "Cardinal Richelieu is secretly planning to take over France!"
How did everyone else handle this massive data dump with your players?
