Expedition to the Demonweb Pits
Results 1 to 2 of 2. I see a lot of people asking about adventures and I think that detailed reviews can help these forum members in choosing an adventure for their own games. I had 4 players of 9th level. The party loadout varied from the following: I will split this review into detailed parts to further assess the entire experience.
I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone so I will not reveal any story info. There were a few hitches in the story but those came from lack of information to deeper elements of the story which were not provided. I understand that the DM me is supposed to add his own bits here and there and I did, yet it seemed like so much was missing from this story.
Even with the lack of info, I was able to make it a memorable experience. I found that I had to create more interesting characters to keep the story relevant. The encounter format is very nice as you have all of the encounter information on one or two pages and always in front of you.
There are many non-monster manual picture of creatures that give a sort of texture to the book, make it come alive. These also help the DM to get an idea of how to portray a scene by giving him an emotion from the picture. I did have a problem of having to flip back and forth between the encounter section and story section of each chapter but that’s more of a personal problem.
I also have a long-lasting gripe about the decision to place DR Damage Reduction on the top of stat blocks instead of the “Defense” section because I miss it regularly. On first glance you see a bunch of encounters and think this is going to take forever! But fear not, many of pitss encounters are able to be skipped, missed entirely, or are just there in the case of picking a fight.
Since my party was a solid mix between combat and RPing, we expected a good amount of them, yet we skipped over ten encounters just because. Some of these encounters, such as the first one in Sigil cranium ratswere brutal and almost ended up in party wipes. I fell that many of the encounters were overpowered and even with the help of an NPC one of mine they were far too challenging in some regards. The stat blocks had constant errors that had to be corrected and once again the location of DR caused problems on my end.
There are two in this campaign and my party used neither as they forced my party to give up there character ideas to use them. I don’t know why, but my players were all level at the end of this campaign. Many of the items were forgettable and generic.
The fun items were ones I had to insert myself. Two of the top ones including a Top hat of opposite alignment and a rod of wonders command word was rubber baby buggie bumpers. The item placement could have been better. The pacing was pretty good for the published sections and immersion was OK, but it felt dry at times. For the section I created myself, like the Spiral Desert, the pacing was great and the players were talking all in character without realizing it.
This was mainly due to a constant change up of creatures and scenarios for the party to face.
It was varied very well save the last part before the council chambers which felt repetative. This is not for beginners. Much of the content had to be improved and modified.
Many additional NPC needed to be made to keep the game moving and to keep it fun. Let me know what you thought of this and maybe Ill do another soon.
A good review, but I would have appreciated a BIT of the story to be outlined; this is a major help to me when picking adventures that can be modified for my fairly distinctive campaign world Otherwise, I liked your level of detail and the fact that you clearly list the issues you had and how you dealt with them.
