Safe for kids


It took me a long time to find a family friendly adventure path. The Basic series has met that need. The first installment is well written and easy for DM’s to run smoothly and efficiently. I would rate the content as a PG rating and ran this module with my small children. That being said it is still fun for adults and my wife enjoyed playing through it with the kids.
This quest comes with premade characters but we chose to make our own. If you do make your own party make sure you have a healer and a thief otherwise you are not going to receive a very high grade based of the in mission grading criteria.
SPOILER ALERT!!!! The hardest part of this dungeon was an Ogre. I thought this was a little overpowering for a group of 4 level 1 characters and is the reason why I gave this module 4 out 5 stars. A few lucky hits and that ogre can destroy the party. He gets a +8 and does 2d6+9 damage, yikes! Granted I had beginning players that used less than perfect strategy but this is who the module was supposed to be for. Other than this one encounter everything else was leveled almost perfectly. However there is a riddle to figure out involving a light puzzle that no players I know would every figure out. The way around this is by the players using trial and error to figure out the combination. I thought it would have been better is there was a trap involved that went off for every wrong combination. There is like 24 possible combinations for this puzzle so it defiantly would have helped encourage pcs to make educated guess instead of switching lenses until they locked into place.
Over all this is a good introduction to role playing for younger audiences and the most kid friendly adventure I have found that is still fun for adults!

And reviewed here, on DTRPG and sent to GMS magazine. Also submitted my review to NERDTREK. Cheers!

Your review isn't showing up END. Perhaps the website maintenance on yesterday has something to do with this?

...and while the server technicians are busy I think I'll just slip this little book of sketches by Liz in my pocket and sneak out the back door... hee hee hee...

Yeah, none of my reviews today seem to show up - guess indeed it's the server maintenance. :( If you don't want to wait, drop me a PM and I'll mail you my review.

Much obliged for the review End! Always brings a smile when we fall on the positive side.

•The first look at an exciting new miniature campaign setting specifically intended for the basic version of Pathfinder

This is the first reference I'ves een to "the basic version of Pathfinder."

Is that referring to the Beginner's Box? Or is there something else out there?


Liberty's Edge

It's in reference to the Beginner's Box, HW. =) Though of course it also works very well with the core rules.

Thanks for the review, End!
