Petals and Thorns is an adventure series written by Chamomile, whose site I link in the Interesting Sites page of my site, in addition to just there. As prep for the Kickstarter launch, and some final playtesting, he ran me and some others through the module to see how it played out. There were some tweaks that came about because of this in the final module, but watching the series should thoroughly spoil it for you.
Overall, I really enjoyed the module, and played the character of Beak. There is a great feeling of there being more to the world, and decisions mattering. There isn’t a clear cut good or bad guy, and the factions have distinct motivations. This was a nice break from the traditional dungeon crawl, and good vs evil, of a normal game. I’d love to get back into the next chapters, and I’ve got them, so I could run myself. But I’m holding out for Chamomile to need some people to play part 2 or 3 for some reason.
