A really solid adventure. Good pace, fun characters, and a nice turn. Thank you to the writer for reminding the DM that a dragon at Tier I is a deadly encounter. I only had to incapacitate one player to drive that message home. They got the point. Also good laughs from the journal handout. I was left wanting to know more about the "Kobolds in the trenchcoat" beyond the "dramatis personae" so a sidebar on that would have been appreciated. Hope to see more of them in the future.
It was ambitious for a 2 hour adventure, and it felt, at times, as if I was rushing through it. With random encounters, wilderness terrain and environmental effects this could be padded to 3 or even 4 hours, but the plot will seem very thin after that. There's enough plot for 2 hours but not for much more. Overall, however, it was balanced and fun to run and play.
