Metagaming Moments CCLXV - Review Last Stand at Copper Canyon

Metagaming Moments CCLXV - Review Last Stand at Copper Canyon

December 28, 2020

#DnD5E @DnD_AdvLeaguef Review = I review Salvage Mission Last Stand at Copper Canyon by  Stacy Allen (@staceyallanart).  With western overtones it begins by the party’s base being attacked in the dark of night.  This leads to finding a message in one of the attacker’s pocket and following up on that, the group of adventurers discover a living junkyard with a life of its own and an ominous plan to feed a mineflayer and turn the mindless bodies into scrap soldiers. This is an above average and fun adventure.This lasts just 20 minutes and 20 seconds.

Metagaming Moments CCLIV - Review Dino World

December 25, 2020

#DnD5E @DnD_AdvLeaguef Review = I review Salvage Mission Dino World by  Celeste Conowitch (@cconowitch).  A great adventure if you like fighting dinosaurs!!! However, Conowich does not deliver on a great story like they promised in this series by the Adventure League administrators and it suffers from the endemic bad Adventure League adventure style and structure so it only rates as a slightly above average adventure. This lasts just slightly over 19 minutes.
