Least scenario, definitely not a must-play

2/5

My perspective on this scenario is as a player. For reference, I played it in the higher tier (6-7). Be warned, spoilers will follow!

I didn't like the scenario very much, to be honest. While the background elements on what's going on are present, the plot is not likely to be understood by players unless the GM does many extra efforts to emphasize certain clues. When I GM or write a scenario, I always make sure my players can understand what's going on with some exposure... there is none here, unfortunately.

As for the mechanics, I didn't like the thin air rule at all. We spent the entire last fight doing double moves for 10'', because of the continuous fatigued condition and difficult terrain.

I definitely don't recommend this scenario, there are others that are far better.

3/5

Yikes! This scenario is simple enough and the faction missions are easy but the combat is easily deadly. I almost lost my bard to the first combat. (We played at the higher tier.) The scenario kept me engaged, mainly because of fear my character might croak if I didn't stay on my toes, but it was a lot of fun. My group had fun with a lot of inter-party role play and the big bad at the end was delightfully cheesy and fun to hurl insults at. Overall I would recommend this scenario.


SIMPLE & LETHAL

3/5

Dull as a premise, but quite challenging in a mechanical sense / numbers game

plus the

Spoiler:
who are you moment at the end

Good to run on those low energy evenings when you need some good rolls to keep you going and want some touch and go encounters

this mod can run very quick


Great for promoting interfaction conflict, nail-biting combat/traps

4/5

Played on 5-6 tier.

Scenario is below average for plot, and doesn't do a very good job of conveying to the party why they are doing what they are doing and what it's effects are.

The scenario makes up for this with great scenery description, very intimidating traps (I pretended the rockslide trap was a save or die and only revealed the ledge after the party looked over the edge of the cliff), and some good, but challenging combat.

The scenario also does a good job of promoting interfaction conflict, with a couple missions having a "get caught and fail" component, and some others being outright suicidal. There's also some room for DM creativity, and you'll need to use it as there is some vague stuff to be had. It was fun watching the players screw each other over for once (albeit accidentally).

The scenario could have benefited from a less useless end guy: I spent the monologue hoping the party would shoot him mid-speech, and the combat watching him get rolled. Meanwhile, the scenario never truly conveys why he is actually relevant.

In all, fun scenario: I would definitely run it again.


Among the Confused

3/5

Ran this for 5 players who have all completed Among the Living & Dead. At the end they all had the same question, was the last encounter thrown in at the end because they needed a BBEG? As the the one running it I understood the connection, and usually their is a way to get some back story out through RP, but even to me it seemed like they just added a BBEG to explain what happens to the party enroute and wrap up a series.

I guess this got pushed back. I was hoping to get this today. Just curious as to what happened.

It seems they are unwilling to communicate on this and Echoes of the Overwatched. It's unusual for this company to be so reticent.

Any chance we know what's up with these two modules? People have them on the schedule (I do, obviously) and are starting to get nervous about whether they will be able to get run.

Mark Moreland commented on this scenario's delay here. I'll be sure to bump this thread when the delayed scenarios are released!

We've updated this PDF, correcting a pricing error of an item on the Chronicle sheet and removed a reference to a deleted faction mission from the final encounter. No other content in the scenario changed.

Silver Crusade

Is this a sequel to Among the Living and Among the Dead? I would guess it would be from the title, but I want to be sure, as if it is, it will be the next thing I purchase since I have run the first, and am running Among the Dead this week for my group.
