Enjoyed this immensely, I found myself well and truely caught up in a 1930’s detective/mystery movie. The plot works well. I did get lucky with a few rolls, especially at the end..where , well you know who, almost gave us the slip at the entrance/exit. Can’t wait for the second scenario. Good job.

I’ve only read the first paragraph of the scenario rules and admired the art, but so far this looks amazing. Just saying.

Hello MJGrenier!

Great job there! 🙂
Any chance you can share the Strange Eons format for translation?

Sorry, can’t. Did all the work in Photoshop.

I see… in that case, would it be possible for you to share the images of the cards?
That way I should be able to recreate the whole scenario… A Google Drive link would be perfect!:-)

Thanks in advance!

Great art and theming. Overall very enjoyable. However, this scenario can be very tedious having to take multiple steps searching for a key Asset, then several more high tests in order to succeed. It was very challenging, but sometimes in an unfun way. Some inconsistencies with rules and set up text left me confused at time. Like I said, overall generally well thought out and enjoyable.

Thanks for the feedback. I was aware of possible negative similarities to the kind of notorious To Catch an Orc from LOTR (in which you’re waiting for things to happen), but I just kind of rolled with it. What setup problems did you have? I’d like to clarify any issues in updated text.

A note on Enter the Dragon: Lin Xingjuan should not ready and engage an enemy due to her forced ability if exhausted. I’ll have to update it when I can put new files together.

Would it be possible to get a version of the locations with icons instead of letters?

MJGrenier

Thanks for asking, but I don’t have the art set up for it, and don’t have time at the moment to scan and crop everything. So unfortunately, I don’t have any plans to do that in the near future.

I personally prefer the letters, as I find it hard to differentiate some symbols at a glance and I’m color blind, so color coding is usually an awkward situation.

Thanks for your response, thought I’d ask since you might have the assets set up.

Although I’m not color blind I do find the symbols can be hard to distinguish sometimes. However, I’ve come to enjoy the style so I might try editing them when I get the time.

This was a beautiful and well-written scenario, such high production levels! I love the jazzy vibe combined with the lurking Lovecraftian horror of it all. Look forward to the next scenario, thanks heaps for sharing this!

Very slick design, thematic and well produced. Like the theme and the balance is pretty good(we played on Hard and barely lost).
Two things:
1. There are a lot of typos and grammatical errors in the text which brings down the ‘feel’ when encountered.
2. There is quite some RNG on the ability on the location. This can be reduced by ‘Put at the bottom of the deck’ instead of ‘shuffle back into the deck’.

Are you talking about The Bar location? That’s a good call. I’m sure there are some typo issues, it’s tough to get it all when it’s in a hundred different files, but I’ll try to go back over it when I can.
