EB-05 A Century of Ashes

This was a change of pace from the tier 1 mods. The crystal skull section has the problem that a player can die in the first 2 minutes and sit bored for an hour. My players did comment that this was the a unbalanced adventuring party that needed a healer and more equipment. They actually manage to have 1 person survive and get away with the skull as all they did was run while the others blocked at choke points and set the blade trap off to slow pursuit. The enemy spell caster has only a few ranged attacks and being human is blind in here....even giving her a light source torch if they run she has only a few spells to get them with.

The dating scene is interesting. Treat it like sheldon and amys first date on big bang theory. He is an academic taking notes and studying to figure out a problem is normal for him not creepy.

The confronting the sphinx is a bit of a joke. you can be from the door in to the sphinx door in 2 rounds double move. So you might get 1 random encounter in then the main fight has to break out. The opponents are weak and my players dropped them in 2 rounds.

The sphinx encounter is again different and shows the strange way the sphinx thinks but I did not see the use of awarding hero points right at the end of a mod

Overall a change of pace that advances the story line.....if your players are action only or just murder hobos they will hate it

This is one of the better salvage missions I have run. The Hag a great time cursing the party but went down quickly when found out. The whole mission was fun for the party and the final confrontation in town was excellent.....this is a good product

Murder in Salvation: A 3 hour Tier 1 Salvage Mission

The basic idea of this adventure is good ....a warforged illusoinist is spying on Salvationby by taking the place of a captured salvager.....He is returning home to report and decides to murder the real salvager. Now he is supposed to be a spy with a 16 int so why does he leave the body in an easily found space.....he also spends almost 2 hrs getting ready to leave after dumping the body giving him a very short head start on the party .....lastly he has access to a phantom steed spell for his getaway but chooses to just stroll out of town. Sorry his actions just made no sense to me as the DM and after my players finished it and I told them the story line there reaction was that it was poorly thought out

4-03 is a poorly put together adventure. There ia alot of good ideas but the connection between them is weak. You start out with some rumors but one is about trying to find an unknown item in a village with 51 buildings that the author wants you to seach a specific one but does not really give you any reason to pick it over others. Also you are strangers in this village that is your sole means of survival during a winter blizzard so are you really going to piss of the village mob by ransacking the town? There is a slim window for you to confront the main bad guy before he leaves but again you lack proof...tons of suspicions but no proof unless you are a group that just tends to act before thinking.. Lastly the other semi bad guy maybe uncovered with a skill check but again you have no proof of what he is up to. If you run this as a DM you will need to put in some work so that a party can make these connections. This is an AL league adventure that is supposed to be edited and ready to run and I do not think it is and if there was a way I would like a refund or a fixed product because I do not think I got what I am supposedly paying for. Lastly let me say that I have been a D&D player for 40 plus years ....am a contributer in a publisher wizard product and have played previous Living campaigns for over a decade.
