I am a little bias, as I am friends with Brian. HOWEVER, I was too busy to help with ideas when he wrote it; so, I got to play this fresh and with the author running it!
I thought the escort was one of the best ideas ever. If only I had not played my 'dumb fighter', I would have had a field day! Felt like I missed out because of my shallow character.
Also, we sort of murder hobo'd...everything. We succeeded, but there is a lot more depth than we let ourselves experience. There is a reason for everything in the adventure; take your time and think, everyone.
