In the tier 3-4, Meleeka has +1 Striking Handwraps of Mighty Blows, but appears to have no extra damage die on any of her unarmed strikes.

On P. 6 there is a part that says "see secondary objectives on P.11" but on the PDF I downloaded there is only the primary objective...There is definitely a boon on the chronicle sheet that I would like to give out but it seems that there is likely an objective that needs to be completed in order to get that.

Thanks for running the quest! Last time I checked the secondary objective was present (hence the citations), but you're right, it's definitely not there now. I'm not sure if this was intentionally cut or not, but I've let the developer, Michael Sayre, know to respond so he can best advise what information should be there.

If this is access to the feat, given the lack of anything else in the scenario, I gave them the boon if they found the scrolls.

Per the Chronicle Sheet instructions on page 18, anyone who completes the quest gains both the One-Who-Waits and Student of the Unforgiving Fire boons on their Chronicle sheet. It looks like some things were swapped during the final checks and unfortunately the reference on page 6 wasn't caught and updated accordingly.

Thanks Michael, I see that now. I appreciate the quick response!

This quest also seems to be unreportable, because it's on the PF1 list instead of the PF2 list, and will throw errors due to incompatible characters.

I'll let Tonya know so we can see about getting that fixed ASAP!

I have spotted multiple possible errors in the high tier statblock of Meleeka:

1. She is using +1 Striking Handwraps, yet her damage is only listed as 1d6, not 2d6 (or d4 with Fire Talon Strikes). (was already mentioned above and I only include it here for completeness sake)
2. Where does the +8 damage for the shuriken hail from?!
3. Is it intentional that she cannot use her Explosive Deathdrop in the same turn she grabs someone? It is about the only cool move she has, but to even try it, she has to have someone grabbed since her last turn. And it isn't even a GOOD move, just an interesting one...

Grand Lodge 5/5 Regional Venture-Coordinator, Great Lakes aka TwilightKnight

If she is already in Mastered Rain of Embers stance at the start of her turn, she can strike with Fire Talon, grab for free, and then Explosive Deathdrop. She just won't be able to do it all in her first turn since she has to use an action to enter the stance.

Ok, point of confusion. I ran this for my players over the weekend. When I went to report it, it told me it was repeatable. However, the quest does not have the repeatable tag on it. My understanding was it wasn't repeatable, but wanted to get clarification.

It is not repeatable. I passed this along to Tonya so we can get the reporting corrected.

Grab cost an action unless it is improved, then it is free action. She can get around the cost of an action by using Blazing-Talon Surge.

Maleeka strides twice. If she ends her movement within melee reach of at lease one enemy, she can make a fire talon Strike against that enemey that deals an additional 1d4 fire damage. If she hits the target enemy, she can immediately Grab them as a free action

So the soonest I see Explosive Deathdrop is in the second round.

Round 1: Enter Stance(1 action) and then Blazing-Talon Surge(2 actions)
Round 2: Use Explosive Deathdrop(2 actions)

or

If they are standing adjacent at beginning of her turn
Round 1: Enter Stance (1 action) Talon Flames Strike (1 action) if successful, grab (1 action).
Round 2: Explosive Deathdrop (2 actions)

AONPRD for reference
Grab
Improved Grab
