5/5

My favorite replayable module. Nice stories, lots of interesting Tian Xia background. Perfect atmosphere. Great replay value, although the variable encounters don't seem to be completely balanced. Module should be re-edited though, to be more GM-friendly. GMs must make various cheat sheets for this to have all the infos handy. (Otherwise they'd have to scroll back and forth in the module to grab the necessary data for a single encounter.) Some artwork is missing for custom monsters, but that's no big deal.

For GMs:

Making some additional maps for the briefing and the spirit encounters is useful, as are cards (notes?) for the foibles / charms of the village and the spirits, otherwise no one will remember them.


4/5

I had a very enjoyable playtrough with my party. Scenario is a bit short, and a few of the transitions are a bit wonkey, but that is the nature of a repeatable I fear.

4 stars. Would happily play again.


4/5

This is my favorite repeatable of Season 1. Most importantly, it feels like it was designed to be repeatable, so nothing feels forced about the interchangable elements, and the interchangable elements actually matter.

I've played it once and GMed it twice. This is the one that I carry around in my Pathfinder bag in case I need to GM a game on short notice.


Terrible

1/5

The...

Spoiler:

... is just terribly written. You basically get trapped in a badly written loop.


Fun setting, decent adventure

4/5

Christopher Wasko did a good job establishing the setting and "feel" of the adventure, which gives the GM enough to work with. The random "quirks" in the adventure reward GM prep for how to incorporate them, but players have to improv personality changes on the fly with their random effects. Fun if it works, but some players might not play ball.

The story and gameplay (via combat and skill checks) are ok, but not spectacular, in my opinion. The overall story of what's going on-- the forces causing the events at hand-- can't really be learned by the PCs as written, which makes the adventure a little empty. If you have leeway to adjust the scenario, it provides a good basis/setting for storytelling.

As usual, the editing isn't great. The most significant error is that one of the "foibles" that can be imposed has literally no effect when played in PFS:

Spoiler:
The "reverent (mauled to death)" foible imposes "weakness 2 against natural attacks", but natural attacks don't exist in 2e.

The beginning of the description says “Quest”, but I think this should be a “Scenario”.

The description speaks of multiple play through - is this one intended as an evergreen?

It has the Repeatable tag, which is the new term for evergreens. So yes, basically.

YAY! I get to post the questions:

Maps list? Please?

Approximate street date?

We're going to be running these in November at our local store, and I'd like to know if I need to have them order maps for me, or if I've already got them.

Thanks!

The street date for Pathfinder and Starfinder Society scenarios, with occasional exceptions for winter holidays, is the last Wednesday of the month. So this month, it's October 30th.

As for the Maps:

Flip Mat Classics: Village Square (B side)

I did not receive this scenario as part of my monthly drop of scenarios, did anyone else receive this scenario?

Did you even get a monthly drop yet? I know I don't yet have my monthly PFS/SFS subscription order for October.

I also did not get 1-06. Just 1-07 and the quest.

Ditto. I got 1-07 and the Quest, but not 1-06.

Maybe it'll drop tomorrow (10/30). If not, we'll need to poke TPTB.

I got the order (and e-mail) today. I assume that we get the modules themselves tomorrow since that is the same day they are up for sale.


It just dropped.
Weird that 1-07 and the Quest dropped first, but whatever. :-)

Curiously I found 1-06 and 1-07 in my downloads without ever receiving an email for them.

Is this supposed to have a total of 4 Fame and 2 Reputation? Seems a little odd.

No, that's an error. It should give 4 reputation, 2 for each objective, as per a standard scenario.

It was a very fun scenario to run! I believe I will be running it again and again!
