Hello everyone, this is a tread about the official adventures so +++SPOILER WARNING+++
Ok so the idea here is to highlight all the little (or big) inconsistencies and the things that didn’t fit to the tastes of my table, in the copper crown chronicle and the Throne of Thorns campaign. Not to bash anyone or say it’s trash but to find a way to fix them, or change things to make them better, or find possible explanations to questions that had my players.
I have GMed 2 times the Cupper crown and the start of the campaign and I start it a third time (hopping going all over it, and confident about it by the experience of the 2 previous attempts).
1. The promised land
The starting is a bit weird for me. The fight to prove your valor is not satisfying for me but is here to explain the fighting rules to the player… So, what I did is to start the adventure in Alberetor, like less than a week from the mountain, with them in line of sight at the horizon. At the beginning, the players are in a caravan of refugees and they are listening an old man telling the story of their lost land and why they have to flee. They are resting for the night in the ruins of a village, precisely in what was once the church of Prios. At a moment, some bandits attack the refugees, and the PC have to fight to protect the chariots, the goods, their road companions and their lives (if they investigate after the fight and in the refugee camp, they will find that the attackers were part of a big bandit group lurking in the region, the band of Mal-Rogan).
Then arriving in the refugee camp, the PC can interact with Master Argasto as they want… any good idea means they can join… at least paying is ok. They don’t have to fight because they already had a fight and this one explains also why they are fleeing a dangerous and dead land (the other possibility is to make the group attacked by some zombies but I think it would change the tone of the game, especially for a first encounter).
After that the rest is good, just why Keri-Las is attacking alone if two other elves are with her? I answer that by the fact that she is very young and so, very impulsive on her behaviors so when she saw an opportunity she didn’t think twice and attacks…
Nothing more for this one.
