Default A Review of the TAS scenario 'The Mystery of BT-SHT 365' in video form

YouTuber Seth Skorkowsky has been reviewing the TAS published scenario 'The Mystery of BT-SHT 365' in the form of a form of a play diary. So far there are three segments covering the First Act and the two parts of the Second Act.

His overall comments is that while the players had a lot of fun, it required a lot of work/improvisation to run the scenario because of the following issues:

1. Several plot points are based on assumptions that the players will act in specific ways, with no discussion of what should be done if they don't.
2. Major NPC entries into the plot are badly handled.
3. Major NPC motivations are not clearly explained to the GM.
4. Key plot elements (Including one major artifact set.) are not clearly explained to the GM.
5. Requirements that GMs own specific sourcebooks to run the adventure
6. Lack of maps of major adventure locations.
7. Errors in maps that are provided
8. The scenario title.

Below are the links to the three videos posted so far.

Act One - The Bank Heist
