Exit the Sage, Enter the War Wizard:
It felt like the first part of Chapter 3, the Seige of Felbar. It was a promising start and it felt like a very different game without Celedon. With Aaron playing an established member of the Deep Six, the game suddenly feels entirely different and in a cool way. It is nice to see the adventuring company in action and watch Aaron and Pete get a feel for Arkadian and Auric’s rhythm.
