Awesome quest as usual, Sandy! Really glad to be in on it! The pacing was nice, and the plot was nice and quick and didn't drag on. I thought all the characters, major/minor, were all good. (Though I agree with Zepher a bit, I'd like to see more in depth stuff from the host of the quest.) Just a few considerations.... the battles. They were really overpowered, like insanely. And also due to luck of the dice, I don't think I got much of anything other than Special Damages. Anyways, even if they were balanced, I wish there was a better variety of getting the quest done. I felt it was battle after battle, and if we tried to solve it any other way, we would eventually be led to an unavoidable battle. (I liked the idea of Darksten throwing a bone to distract the crowed, so adding in the possibility of different solutions to a problem would make the quest even better!) The quest was still good, just some stuff to consider.
Fellow PC's were great, would love to quest with both of you again!
