I am keen to get the next part(s?) of this adventure, I see there was a rough draft of part 2 a year ago. Any thoughts on when it will be available?

I have actually started work on the first act of a completely new draft this week and have an entirely new set of playtesters. So, stay tuned!

So Seth Skorowsky pays a measly $2 for a module and the author makes less than enough for a cup coffee.

Skorowsky, however, makes 4 videos with over 100,000 combined views. That earns him personally how much money?

In those videos he explains how his group had almost 40 hours of fun playing the module.

As a thank you, Skorowsky proceeds to take a huge dump on the module and its author. In the end, he encourages everyone else not to waste $2.

For clarity, Skorowsky makes some immature comments about how shocking and horrible a few lines of strong sexual content make him feel.

This is a typical response from fools who have never been involved in real combat and violent death. All that killing you so blithely do is far worse, but you're just too stupid and inexperienced to know it. Instead you're scandalized by the puritan taboos that make nudity and sex more terrible than killing and permanent death. Shame on you.

The sad truth is that...See more

Over 100,000 people see his review. If even a third of those people decide to go ahead and by this $2 module, either because they thought it sounded good or (like you) they just don't like him, that's a boat load of coffee for the author. Free advertising (good or bad) is still good for a product, especially one that may have been overlooked otherwise.
As a side note, he does say if the module sounded like something your group would enjoy to go ahead and buy it. He also gave gamemasters some ideas to throw into the module to fill in some gaps and even provided the maps for free. Which might incentivize some people to buy it when they maybe wouldn't.
Your comment on people thinking sex and nudity is worse than death shows you don't understand the nature of his problem with this kind of content. Some people would rather die than have something like that happen to them. Your view on death and rape is different than mine. But you don't get to be the one to determine which is worse. That is subjective....See more

I think Seth mainly meant that it come out of left field without any warning. This is actually one of those times where a content warming is a good idea to have.

His videos, as a whole, recommend the product, but the one where the rape comes up says not to buy it, but to me it comes off as "you may want to edit it."

Either way, the adventure does have some legit flaws other than the sexual aspects which he addresses and offers solutions to. I think his videos brought more money to the author than it lost, and I'm definitely one of those people who bought it.

I found Seth skorowsky's review to be sadly pedantic. He seems not to understand the limitations of someone publishing on a limited budget nor the restrictions placed on you by publishing under the Mongols traveller license. Worse still be pretty much gives away the entire modules contents through his review.

Skorkowsky does put a spoiler warning on each of his Traveller module reviews right at the start, and clearly states that the review is for GMs only.

For $2, it's a nifty adventure.

Skorkowsky clearly states in his videos that he is going to spoil all of the major points of the adventure in order to critique it. Additionally, his criticisms are all of the design and narrative choices made by the writer, none of which are limited by budget or licence agreement (with the exception of *one* of his proposed solutions to one of his issues, which would be a licencing issue, but he also provides two alternative solutions)

Otherwise, all of his problems with the module seemed completely reasonable to me.

That all said, it's ridiculous that so many people are here commenting "Seth didn't like it, so neither do I". It's childish and doesn't achieve anything. I think there are some great ideas in here for an experienced GM to adapt, even if the execution is poor in places.

Seth Skorkowsky’s YouTube review makes me very interested in buying this product, despite his negative comments. I always adjust purchased adventures and excising bits or adding others bits is no problem if most of the premise/story and scenarios are good and based on his review this seems to have that

I agree that Mr SKirkowsky raises some good points. I, persoanlly, used another product (Free to play Starship Geomorphs-Traveller by Robert Pearce) as a way of 'Expanding' one of the encounters to suit my hoped for players and our game.

I sincearly look forwards to the next installment to find out about more of the mysteries presented by Mr Wilson.

I've also been following Seth Skorkowsky's review series on this scenario and it's bringing up serious issues with it as written and published. If the author is watching the series, they should start thinking about an updated version to address them.

It is what it is. I'm not going to pull a Lucas and go back and change the product. I may update the maps at some point in the future and I may do some grammar changes, but other than that it will be exactly as it is. I have been enjoying Seth Skorkowsky's review of the module and he is using it exactly as intended. No gamemaster should think that it is the duty of any written module to hold your hand through everything. Your job, as a gamemaster, is to take a module and make it your own for your group.

There is a difference between holding the GMs hand, giving them enough information to run the scenario with improvisation and forcing them to improvise to paper over the cracks. From what's been shown in Seth's review series, this scenario is falling into the third category. It's not bad form to revise a product after criticism.

You are under the assumption that a creator is obligated to change something because there was criticism. Unfortunately, you're wrong.

Wow. I thought his review of it made it sound like a fun purchase. Not really thrilled with the discussion here though. I don't expect a $2 adventure to cover everything and you seem a little crotchety which maybe I am too. Has the adventure series continued? Is it good filler for the Drinax campaign?

I have been working on the second adventure in the series and it has gone through several rough drafts. I've been unhappy with all of them, however. But it is an active project that I am working on. As for filler for the Drinax campaign, I admit that there are some things in the module that could lead to characters being a bit more powerful by the end than intended for Drinax. Though, given the potential lethality of the Drinax campaign, that may not be a bad thing.

Will there be an update after the finished review on Seth Skorkowsky's Youtube channel? He has some legitimate criticism and suggestions...

I may do some grammatical updates and I may add a map pack to the product. But aside from that, it is simply not that important to make changes over the criticism. It is what it is. My time is better spent moving forward to make a better product in the future than it is to obsess over this one. It will never be perfect and if you are that critical of it, it will never be what you want.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
