Product– Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-02: Mountain of Sea and Sky
TL; DR-A better first scenario! 98%
Basics– Pathfinder! The Society calls! A new lodge is being built and new agents are needed to help with getting the area settled. You won’t be wielding a hammer. The land needs to be purified and the locals may help or hurt if you make enough friends. An intro adventure for levels 3 to 6.
Mechanics or Crunch-I love the crunch here. There are a ton of fights, but none drag on. Also, there are multiple things like social encounters, exploration, and some solid fights as well. Heck there is even a hard boss fight, but like all good RPGs, if you play smart and make friends, life is easier. This feels like a great introduction to the system and world, even better than 2-01. 5/5
Theme or Fluff– Story, combat, exploration, and social-all parts of a solid whole that make a fun adventure. When I run this I have a blast and so do my players. Nothing drags; there is always time left but you leave feeling full. More adventures like this are needed to pull new pathfinders into the fold. 5/5
Execution– PDF? Yes. Hyperlinked? Yes. Good layout, handout, and all the other basics make this a solid adventure. The only thing I don’t like are the maps that are marked up so I have to buy the other map somewhere else. That always feels cash grabby, but that is the only bad thing here. 4.75/5
Summary-I love this adventure. You get new locations, new characters, and solid fights that make a fun adventure. It’s balanced well with a fun boss fight and great execution that makes running this a blast. Would like clean maps, but that is my only problem. If you want some intro to Pathfinder, you won’t go wrong with this one. 98%
