Amazons of Valsuum – A Review by Kurt R

This is an interesting little adventure for 4 to 6 characters of 2nd to 3rd level characters in the White Star setting.

The main content of the PDF are pages 4 through 21 out of 22 and it is bookmarked.
There's a short history of Valsuum, then it moves on to 3 races that are covered by this supplement. I would have liked to see more detailed physical descriptions, like fur/hair color, skin tone and eye colors that are common to these races. It does detail out experience tables and some special abilities for each one as well as weapon and armor proficiencies. Then there are stats for 4 types of ships that are seen in the module.

While the actual adventure starts on page 9 the Amazons don't get screen time until page 17. The Designer Notes are there for available customization of various aspects of the adventure which are very neat. There are some interesting paths leading to the Amazon Temple and also some encounter tables for day traveling and night traveling and detailed write-ups of each listing.

The Temple of the Way is one such detail that is well done and there's a brief map for it as well. It has some dynamics that are meant to test the party. Then we get to the Amazonian Pyramid Mountain that contains 5 levels leading to the top. This part can be tricky if the party is gung-ho and not wanting to be stealthy. I however would have liked to see a map for this temple and the GM would have to make one up ahead of time based on the descriptions for each level.

Overall, this is well done and would take a session or two to complete. I give it 4 stars of 5, based on the missing descriptions for the races, the miss opportunity to include a map of the Amazon Temple and I would have like a little more Amazon goodness, since that's the name of the offering.

[4 of 5 Stars!]
