Lycans, Vampires, and Ghouls, oh my!
I have not had the pleasure until now of hearing a good party start off in an evil city and work for an evil Queen and I am finding it is a great plot hook! Instead of your heroes starting off trying to do right they are forced into the quest through fear. The story kicks off very quickly getting the party into the thick of it. Everyone is great at staying in character and there is enough goofs here and there to keep it a bit light hearted to help balance the dark elements. The DM does a great job having the NPCs feel fleshed out with good personalities that let them strongly stand out in the story while the party takes no time at all to immerse themselves with what is going on. The bardic spells are also a really nice touch, I love the idea of each spell having its own unique incantation! If you're looking for a Pathfinder actual play with some good and solid story and fun characters, you need to check this out right away!
