Please note that I have only read this adventure.
All-in-all I enjoyed reading this adventure and hope to run it soon. I would estimate it taking 2 – 4 sessions.
The rogue’s gallery of villains contains interesting characters, and Heskan stands out as my favourite
There is a good instance of black humour that had me laughing out loud
Easily set in the Forgotten Realms in a sufficiently seedy city, such as Athkatla, Baldur’s Gate or Luskan
There is a significant plot hook for a following adventure that DM’s could use
There are no maps of hideouts. Maps would definitely save DMs time and headaches running the adventure
Combat encounters may not be challenging for higher-level parties
Changes I would make:
Dealla, the common folk or even the party might want to raise Dale instead of giving him a burial. For reasons in the adventure, this isn’t possible, but they would not know that. I would use that as Dealla’s starting motivation.

Thanks for the review, John! We are glad you enjoy the cast of villains - we really wanted to explore some of the classic monstrous races. Interestingly enough, Heskan was inspired by a character from an old 4e campaign of mine.
Regarding the maps, this is always a consideration we make to weigh the time to create the maps and the added value they would contribute to the release. Is there a specific hideout that you think would benefit from a map?
Thanks again for the review and stay golden!
I highly recommend The Final Resting Place of Thale Goodsight. It is well written and jnot just the average slugfest. It is very well organized and brings back the joy of classic D&Dk. I am excited to be running my party through it. As a bonus, the writting is smart. It provides interesting details to help one flesh out the campaign while still being general enough to fit in any major city setting. I look forward to the future products of Goblin Ink Adventures. I am already a huge fan!
