5/5

Great investigative scenario, with a good creepy asmosphere. It allows players to slowly discover what is going on, with leaving plenty of mystery.

Its sandbox nature is also well suited for players to discover the ins and outs of Second edition.

I have only played this.

I had a lot of fun as an envoy playing this. I played up and never felt like I was in any trouble.
The story is amazing. The story would be a solid five stars.
The scenario is however too easy combat wise, and there are a few small mistakes, like misaligned maps.

We played this last-minute as our other table fell trough.

We were all in the high tier, with one character being out of subtier.
We had a mystic and a technomancer, and I dual wielded Iseph and Navasi.

All in all we had a pretty good time. It wasnt easy, but with some clever planning with who would do what, and aiding together, we made it trough in the end.

The combat in the middle was a good bit of relief and it was fun that the combat had effect on the second part.

All the things!

4/5

There is so much going on in this scenario! The encounters were a lot of fun and we nearly got all killed (nearly dying is fun!).
I just felt there were so many things, I probably missed some plot points here and there. I think this scenario will benefit from being run in a longer timeslot in a quiet enviroment, so that its easier to understand all the things going on.

A nice dungeoncrawler that lets you get some payback on the nasties that kicked you out of the scoured stars.
There are a lot of fun rooms to explore. The end fight is pretty cool too.

It is of course very hard to make a true infiltration mission when taking into account the random parties you get in Organised Play. So making it an exploration dungeoncrawl works well.

I just feel more could have been done with some of the encounters.

A very interesting scenario, that turns a lot of assumptions up on its head. You'll have a lot more fun if you enter this with an open mind. Murderhobos will not have a good time.

A very thematic scenario. Who wouldnt be exited to go to a planet full of dragons, to work with a dragon VC?!?!?!?!

The only issue I have with the scenario is that if you fail some skill checks, the transitions between some scenes can be a bit weird, but nothing a GM cant work with.

The fights can be pretty tough and the take on the starship combat is very cool!

5/5 would get eaten by a dragon again.

The difficulty defenitly ramps up in this scenario, which was a welcome change for us.
The NPCs are all very interesting and cool. The investigation portion could have been fleshed out a lot more however.
Interesting set up leading to the scoured stars.

This makes a better scenario then a repeatable.

If you play this once, its a memorable space combat, you have great roleplay with what you discover on the planets, and have fun exploring. The combats are on the easy side, but it makes a great intro scenario for new players. As a scenario it would be a solid 4 stars.

As a repeatable however, it gets boring real quickly. The enemies change, a little bit, as do the creatures and their reasons. But the rest is pretty much the same. If you've seen it once, youve pretty much seen it all. The method of making the scenarios is pretty fun with the random tables, but its just not enough to keep it interesting for more then once.
As a repeatable its only a 3 star scenario.

An investigative scenario that lets you explore more of your home base, absalom station.
The investigation itself is fun, but will be better with an experienced GM, who can flesh out the parts a bit more.

Combat is fun and can be quite scary. Especially the end can get players sitting upright in their seats.

Good solid scenario, a really good intro for new players. It will be more fun with a more experienced GM who can add to the story, so 4 out of 5 stars.

A really good mix of first contact/whodunnit.
I would recommend a more experienced GM to keep this scenario flowing right and get the maximum out of this.

I'm really of two mind in this scenario. The idea behind it is super fun. Getting a wannabe superstars access codes to his mothers corporation? Hell yeah!
Impressing him trough gladiatorial combat? Hell yeah!
Getting into his good graces? Hell yeah!

But there are quite a few rails in this scenario, and they become visible quite easily once you try to creatively do things, or do things out of order. It will take a very good GM, or players who easily go along, to keep them hidden.

I love the idea of this scenario, and the NPCs are quite memorable and fun, but the scenario should have taken into account that the players would really want to solve thing their way.

The scenario starts off very strong, and those of you who love shady dealings and investigation will have a blast.
Also, if shadowrun is your thing, you will love this!

The scenario does taper off a bit towards the end, but the "zamboni" makes for a lot of fun!

No spoilers.

A very fun space combat with an interesting set up and very interesting opponents. I really enjoyed it.

The exploration of the ship is very creepy, and gives both players and GMs the chance to turn it up to 11.

Explore!

4/5

This scenario is really fun if your character loves the 'explore' part of the society. And your character will have plenty of time to do so in this scenario.

The story is great, I'll give no spoilers, with plenty of interesting choices with potentially big impacts for your character to take.
The only thing making it 4 stars is the space combat, as it can take way too much time if things dont go your way.

Good fun

4/5

I have only GMd this.

A scenario with a good set up, good roleplay, and interesting enemies.
There are however a few plot holes, some more noticably then others. And the map in the last encounter isnt entirely clear.

The end fight however is really good, and people were sweating the outcome. They also had a lot of fun exploring the planet.
So 4 stars. Good scenario, but a few blemishes that you can work around as a GM.

Being a plant never was this much fun

5/5

Played this at PaizoCON. It was amazing. I had a lot of fun.

The leshy classes are very balanced. The story is fun and makes sense (which is important). Roleplaying opportunities were plAnty.
You'll have a few solid hours of fun with this.

I played this with Quentin, and actually had a lot of fun.
The character I played is as dumb as a rock and I certainly played that up.
I can see that this is a tough scenario, and you will need to prepare. The gloomspires has its reputation, and without preparation, you will have a problem.

Also, dont be like us, and let the squishy character go first.
That said, I think people looking for a more difficult scenario then normal, will have a lot of fun with this.

I've GMd this several times.

It has all the things you want: Good RP and tough fights. And you know that when you get into trouble it was all your own fault.

Not for the faint of heart!

I've GMd this several times now.

I think most people's bad experience comes from a bad or under-prepared GM. This scenario has a lot of things happening in it, with several complex rules. If you dont know those rules, encounters can easily be a pushover, or incredibly deadly, depending on how you interpret them.

I would advise that you play part one, but its not necessary to understand what is going on in this scenario.
There is a lot of lore hidden in it, which you can find if you look for it. There are also several good roleplay opportunities.

All in all, you will miss a lot if you just go murderhobo trough it all. An experienced GM is advised.

Its a tough cookie this one. Both for players and the GM. Lots of options on the monsters/NPCs.
But its a rewarding tough cookie. I had a lot of fun playing it and we had a lot of close calls.

Excelent scenario for the experienced Pathfinder.

Would not recommend for players who have their first character just turn lvl 7.

Tough but tasty cookie

3/5

Played this Magabeus.

I find it a tough one to rate.

Basically its a great scenario, up untill the end, then it can go either way: Either its really painfull, or its really great.

The last fight is a real tough one, and the idea behind it is really cool. A scene straight out of a blockbuster movie. But now its your character that is actively saving the world. Or at least the Mwangi expanse.
But how it goes is real swingy and a lot depend if you have the appropriate skills, so you know what is going on. If you dont, then its going to be really tough, to the point of near impossible.

I'll rate it at three stars, as the flavor is super duper good. The fights are real thematic and tough but fair, but the four player adjustment isnt that well thought out. And it looses a star for me that there isnt an alternative means to find out things about the last fight if you are missing certain skills. That's a great oversight in my opinion.

I did have a lot of fun playing, and I crossed of two boons from chronicles during this adventure :)

If you love Dreng, play this. If you hate Dreng, play this.

4/5

Quentin GMd this for me.

As Quentin and Ascapalus said, it hasnt aged well with the powercurve. We did have an overpowered party (in my opinion).
But we had a lot of fun. It has a bit of a three stooges feel, but in a good way.
It is certainly a flavorful scenario, with good locations. The shadowlodge angle doesnt work that well, but Dreng is a mysterious figure. I think it could work if you keep the villains of this scenario a bit vague.
