A DM must buy BUT.......
This is great module for any DM but especially for new DMs.
Lots of hand holding and suggestions. Lots of information and how to handle the information. The use of sidekicks is very interesting BUT.
The adventure gives players sidekicks and asks them to run the sidekicks. But then takes player agency away and has the sidekicks do stupid stuff. And there is some railroading along the way.
I did like how encounters were adjusted.
My player feedback. Redo page 28 as it only readable is you use the color copy, snap a picture of it with your cell phone and view it that way. Plus it is not needed.
The railroad with the Sidekicks was not well liked.
The group found it funny a sidekick warrior can don armour quicker than pcs.
