DDAL05-01 Treasure of the Broken Hoard (5e)

My players and I really loved these sets of adventures. Every adventure had a mix of mechanics and seemed to allow for different types of play. I love when adventure mix together puzzles, combat, exploration and social encounters in a way that doesn't scream "Okay, we are stopping what you were doing and moving onto the next mechanic now". I hope to see more intro adventures use this method of design in the future.

Transit: The Spaceship RPG
Publisher: Fiddleback Productions

Transit takes the bold step of removing you from your organic body and dumping you into a cold, metal cyberbrain in the depths of space. Unlike other RPGs, you are not a member of the crew, but instead the crew's caretaker. Their overseer. Their home. And if need be, their commander that will send them into dangers throughout the black beyond, all the while singing "Daisy" over the loudspeakers.

Your true companions are other members of the fleet. Other AIs tasked with accomplishing the same mission as you, in whatever way each of you sees best. This can mean very different this for a Ship-of-the-line holding statesmen for diplomatic events verus a stealthy gunship that just knows it can get the job done and no one will see it happen.

The true purpose of Transit though is to put exploration and discover at your feet, as there is a large, dangerous, and wonderous galaxy to explore. Might you find new races, wonderous technologies or interesting cultures? That is all for you to decide.

The rules for the game are simple to understand, but fiddly enough to allow each player to feel different and interesting. The game knows what it wants to be and easily hits the vibes of many Sci-fi favorites from the past. The hardcover book has a great layout, an index that makes navigation a cinche and information is found right where you think it belongs. But most importantly, the fun is easy to jump into and can go so many different directions.

Do you want to have an alien invasion that your outgunned ships have to fight off? Done. Do you want to escort colonies into the dark reaches of space to explore new worlds? Done and Done. Do you want to explore the questions of "what is alive" and can a machine have true intelligence? This game has it in spades.

So upload yourself today, as there is a galaxy of adventure waiting for you.

The Lady of Trollskull Priory

I think that this was a great setup and awesome gothic addition to Waterdeep. The descriptions of the characters and the Priory really got my players into the theme. I like how there were additional details about the various tropes and ideas on how to take these characters even further in the campaign.

I only gave it four stars though because I see this as more of a setup to future adventures, rather than an adventure in itself. I feel as if my players were constantly looking around the party for the next plot thread to drop, when it really is a question of "Who is the Lady" and how does the party react to her "condition".

Thanks so very much for your review! I am thrilled to hear that your players enjoyed their time with the Lady! The resources here are definitely designed with an eye towards making the Lady an ongoing element in a Waterdeep centered campaign (specifically Dragon atheist) so I can see the lack of a traditional “adventure” being a bit of a dissonance for some folks. I do think you can run the materials here as a straightforward “go kill the monster” tale, but that was not the design intent. Thanks, Travis
