Maybe it worked better in the Adventure Path


This finale was one of the prime examples of why extended universe literature merits so little respect: decisions have no consequences. Every big decision, every pitfall, every parting ends up being meaningless. Even points that were built up end abruptly, as if the writer suddenly remembered there were loose ends to tie up. And the final battle is so utterly disappointing, I was convinced it was a false ending until the credits rolled.

I will admit there were points that worked very well. The beginning was suitably terrifying, and the development of Harsk's character was interesting. Prior to the anticlimaxes, the deep and heavy moments really tug at your heart-strings. It makes me wonder if the whole thing was rushing too hard to tell all that needed to be told.

A delightful finish! Lots of elements from throughout the series all came back around in this one. Plenty of 'new' to the interactions and story as well. Also it was particularly nice for me as we skipped the first section (of the module and CD) in my actual game, and this filled in the gap nicely.

Bravo Big Finish!

Perfect finale


Thank you Paizo and Big Finish for a wonderful, imagination stirring ride through Varisia with a splendid party in tow.

Am very glad there's to be a Series 2.

So when did this move to Febuary?
I thought this was supposed to be a late January release.

Can't wait for this. I'm looking forward to Series 2. Well worth it.

Just finished listening to this - a delightful finish! Also particularly nice as the first section was skipped in my actual game, and this filled in the gap very very nicely.

So....any word on the next Series and what it may be? I really enjoyed listening to these, but my group is still playing the game and can't actually listen with me.

Does this mean the chosen story is already set? I was hoping that paizo would kinda like get inputs from their fans just like playtests in rulebooks. In any case, if only APs would be the basis of the next legends series, I would really, really love the carrion crown to be in the pipeline. My take's that horror/creepy stories have always been the perfect genre for audio dramas; that's the reason that my personal favorite in the audio ROTRL was the second one.

According to rumour on the big finish site, the second series is going to be double disc releases too. Presumably the price will go up, but the cost per minute down.

Still no official announcement that I could find.
