Despite the crossover to sci-fi that happens at the end, this AP is, overall, a set of quality adventures. Endings were designed to be re-written anyway, weren't they?

This was an almost perfect AP, asides from having to be very railroady at certain points, it really relies on the characters following certain suggestions to the letter - although there are hints what to do if the PCs stray from the path too much. If you and your group can live with that it is 5 stars, otherwise 4.

I felt like it really got disconnected in the middle, didn't enjoy the switch from the city to everywhere but.

This one was fun, but parts required the GM to fudge stuff to keep us on track.

I've only played the first part of this, an amazing story about a gambling hall. By the end of that, the players own the hall if they did well, and are geared up for taking on the rest of the city. Sadly, this never happens, as the story derails into a series of dungeons. Yes, this is a horrible bait-and-switch, with the introduction that is completely different from what comes even in part two. Cutting away the introduction to stand on its own, this is a decent series of dungeons full of interesting encounters, but huge dungeons really are not my style.

Is it an urban adventure or an expedition to the underdark? Really played like two separate APs. Interesting background information on the setting save it from a "1".

The first two chapters of Second Darkness are great. I used them to launch a completely different pirate campaign of my own. Once you hit chapter 3 and get into the drow part, it's just poorly conceived and executed, with plenty of "why are we doing this again?" moments.

The big problem with many adventure paths is that there are different authors who don't read each other's modules before writing their own contribution. As a consequence, APs feel like six loosely connected stories instead of a single story. At best, there might be one or two crossover NPCs between stories, if that.I really liked Endless Night (part 4), but that was the only drow urban adventure in the story arc. The rest of the adventures occurred elsewhere.

Started with a bang. By end of Chapter 1 players own an inn!.... only to leave it behind forever to go fight dark elves. The end.

Unfortunately this one didn't work. Very railroady in parts and disjointed. Save your time and money and go with another AP.
