    I’m giving this 4 stars only because it’s not in my rule set of choice. Easy enough to convert, and everything seems to be there. Hours of time have been saved. Thanks AAW!

    The content of the mod is beyond imagination and I am looking forward to it.

    Really liked this content and coming to foundry was the main reason i purchased it. Keep up the awesome work.

    I am hoping you guys will release more APs on Foundry. There are little proffesional 3rd party content currently. I think it could be a niche to exploit?

    The “Purchases” link was the raw HTML file, rather than a link to that website, but otherwise everything was easy 🙂

    This is really an excellent package, but once I dove into the Foundry VTT I found a few things a bit lacking and sloppy. There are some minor spelling errors which isn’t a huge deal, but you know, professionalism. The big thing to me was the artwork used in token portraits for characters and monsters. It’s kind of chaotic and inconsistent and some tokens don’t have artwork at all. I thought for $90 package, which I did purchase discounted, that this was a little sloppy and could have been done better. We haven’t played far enough in to go into greater detail with the product, but I find myself already making several adjustments to spiffy it up. It’s a great package but for the price point a bit lacking which was disappointing and will give me pause in the future when considering a VTT module from this publisher.

    Hello Aaron,
    Thank you for this information. I’ve contacted the conversion expert that we hired to do this build. There shouldn’t be any misspellings and I suspect perhaps those were introduced in the conversion process as frequently happens when things move from a professional published book into a medium where some aspects end up being typed by the conversion expert doing the work.
    In regards to tokens, we have art for all of the creatures/monsters, so I am unsure as to why some of this was not included. I will make sure that the conversion expert obtains access to the correct files and gets an update posted soon to fix these matters you’ve pointed out.
    Thank you for writing a thorough review and giving us the chance to further improve upon our product.

    It was such a joy to open this adventure in Foundry and see the great organization, depth of content, and quality of content included. As presented there is little work the DM to do, other than to familiarize themselves with the content. Thank you!

    This adventure is one of the best I have seen in awhile, the conversion to Foundry is amazing. I can’t wait to run this adventure.

    This is a good start to putting together a VTT module, but not something with a lot of polish so unfortunately I can’t recommend it.

    Great bones, but personally I expected something polished and a little more ready to go right out of the box.

    The journal entries are linked together nicely, you get the digital assets: tokens, maps, etc. (and there’s at least one bonus map which the book didn’t provide which is very much appreciated).

    The maps are nicely sized with lighting applied, gm-only text, journal notes, and some sound effects.

    I particularly like the music and playlists.

    Walls don’t have the edges snapped, so vision leaks through exposing things you might not want your players to see (this is my biggest beef).

    Something is broken with the actors (maybe just on my side?) such that there’s no way I can use them as-is. They don’t seem to have character sheets.

    The VTT module is literally the digitized book, but probably should have been broken into two modules: one for the adventure and one for the extra world building chapters of the book. Digging into the VTT module first, I was very confused why a scene map of the town where the adventure starts was detailed in the “Chapter 13” section. That makes sense in a book, but this is a different medium and a direct port doesn’t hold up as well.

    (from AAW Jonathan’s email for you!)

    We appreciate your feedback. We were glad to see how much of the project you liked and we also completely understand and appreciate your criticism as well. As you know this was a very large product and as such took a lot of time and effort to produce. During the course of the work we had discovered some new methods and better ways to do certain things and we had to go back and make some changes to earlier work we did. But as with any large product it had some bugs. We have been compiling a list that includes all the bugs you mentioned in here and we are planning a large update which will address all the bugs as well as bring Rise of the Drow into Foundry V10 and take advantage of the new features in there. I would encourage you to also join our discord community and interact with the other Foundry users and report any bugs you find there as we now have a bug submission form for this project. Thank you again for taking the time to review this product and we hope we can bring it up to your standards and earn a higher review from you.
