General thoughts:

I ran this last weekend as a filler episode because half my group couldn’t make it so those who showed weren’t expecting much. Imagine my surprise when it ended up being a crowd favorite! A ton of clever decisions were made in the design of this tightly packed module.

Likes: A simple (not simplistic!) deductive puzzle slow-rolled over the course of 7 pages, 6 fleshed-out locations, 9+ NPCs (with various emotional states and micro-conflicts), relevant & quality thematic art (I know it’s all repurposed art but I think that argument would be missing the point in a product like this), a strong & relevant link to the Agents of Edgewatch AP volume 1 (so this doesn’t feel like a wasted evening of play).

Dislikes: Not much, really. The “combat” in this module is only relevant if the GM makes it relevant. The Tengu & Dwarf, respectively. There are zero reasons to draw your sword if you are running this out-of-the-box. It’s hard for me to even place this in the dislikes column but the statblocks take up a crazy amount of space so here it sits. The second thing is that I loved the decision to link a certain NPC’s emotional state to Corporal Kerr Batiste (from the AP) so much that I wish this approach had been taken with the rest of the NPCs. Again, these two gripes are not intended as gripes so much as two-things-I-would-fork-over-more-money-for-in-the-author’s-next-project-were-they-to-be-addressed.

Questions: Just one. The final reveal seems to negate nearly the entirety of chapter three in Devil in the Dreaming Palace. Am I seeing this wrong? I have two weeks to figure this out…

Super well done!

It is great for the price, well formatted and inserts into the main campaign easily. Good side story and support.

The downsides of what I'd like to see in such a thing was a combat encounter design/1 map kinda bounty design. I adjusted to put this in and have it fit well as the story is written. But for this I would have and expect to have paid more ($1.99-2.99 mark). Also the fonts were kinda off/wonky.
