Reviews for Druids of Krell
Note: Hints included in some reviews. You have been warned.

Below are some reviewer's comments which we thought might help you decide on whether or not you'd like to play the scenario. This page is not a list of all the reviews the scenario received, only those that had thoughful and/or useful comments to make.

Comments:Excellent first effort. Highly immersive environment, far more than I expected. Several irritating points, plus one Windows related blunder bring this down from a 4.25 score. Keep up the good work and looking forward to the sequel.

Comments:A truly excellent scenario. I liked every aspect of the plot and game play. The plot towards the end plays as if your party was actually on an adventure not just randomly searching rooms for treasure. The cut scenes only serve to enhance the overall feel. Though nothing technically new is used in the scenario, many common elements are taken to a higher level. The use of hight for the Dragon platform was especially pleasing. BOA displays heights reasonably well why other people haven't taped into this feature is a mystery.

The outdoors were extremely well put together, the Valley seemed like a place people might actually live. Druids of Krell, is a very linear story the party is placed on a path that they must follow or leave the scenario.

Combat is not overly prevalent there are several large lizard battles. But overall the scenario is telling a single story. Therefore combat and such other elements of most BOA scenarios are not present to any large degree. The scenario is reasonably long. But the ending could use a bit more polish. Though as with books not everyone will be pleased by the same ending. Play this scenario for a well-told story involving your group as its central characters. Rating iz 4.05 ReSPek......
Comments:This is a mediocre scenario with a neat perspective. There are many pros and cons though, and so I have made a list.

The good points:
1. Interesting use of towns, the author made some of them just outdoor encounters, a nice variation.
2. Good, solid combat
3. Unusual characters (there is a friendly ursag)
4. Plot makes you unsure as to loyalty of main helper

The bad points:
1. Horrible backstory, the two main heroes are ridiculously well traveled, they beat back the Vahnatai
2. Many errors
3. Weird, anti-climatic ending

This is not a great scenario, but it is a good filler scenario for a mid-high party who wants some experience and don't wish to be dreadfully bored.

Comments:Druids of Krell is an excellent scenario. Though there were some typos, it was very enjoyable. Went through it with a level 19 party, and it was slight more difficult, I enjoyed it immensly. This scenario is definatly worth your time.
