Really good little module here. I have run it many times, mostly for players entirely new to the game. It works really well as an intro adventure for a couple of reasons:

  • It's short - around 2 hours of runtime keeps new players from losing focus, and forces the action to keep moving
  • Good mix of roleplaying and combat encounters - This one presents a really challenging roleplaying moment as you have to decide what resources you have to sacrifice. The combats are fun and engaging
  • Player choice - player decisions have a VERY real impact on how the story and events unfold

Overall, a great module. It has a unique atmosphere in relation to the rest of season 5 given its desert setting, and transitions players in a great way from the Moonsea setting of previous seasons and CCC into the Sword Coast. This will continue to be my go-to for new players, even over DDIA or 5 episode modules.
