For whatever reason this part of the tnents of Bane circle misses the FG module.
The adventure itself to me is a kind of a mixed bag.
First of all i have an issue with not the module, but that this modules story begins right after s/thing very exciting happened, a part of the story that simply not involves the PC#s at all - the failed attempt to destroy the disc, s/thing the PC's worked for the first 4 parts. That is to me - abit disappointed.
Instead we get a first encounter that is neither very intresting nor connected to the story.
But than s/thing very cool happens: the PC's are to make a real meaningful decision! From here we get to one of 2 intresting encounters, thats all well done.
On the way home we get another random encounter, but this time an interesting one, to not play this would be a shame.
I feel like swapping encounter #1 and the optional encounter would be more intresting, and should work just fine.

Forced to give a rating, mine would be...See more

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
