Review – Wild Wide Web (for Pathfinder)

25 November, 2011

For a short adventure, this product is entirely a solid one for a night of play.  Depending on the group of characters involved, however, the GM may wish to increase the opposition slightly to make it a bit more challenging.

Wild Wide Web: A Short Adventure for 5-7 is a 26-page PDF (23-pages if you remove the cover and OGL page) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Jarrod Camiré and published by Taurus Twelve. (A version of this product is also available for D&D4e but this review is only for the Pathfinder version.)

The layout is a standard page in two columns and mostly double spaced, leading to an easy to read if overly large product (as far as page count goes), a condensed printer-friendly file would have been a good addition.  The cover is full color and the interior art is mostly black and white public domain art much from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, while it is thematic much of it just seems to pad out the product.  Two color maps of the central encounter are included, one for the GM and one for the players.

It is a good, straight forward ‘help the village’ scenario with a few twists in the execution.  The two communities used as anchors are simply but well drawn allowing for their use again if the GM wishes.  There are two combat encounters, one basic (and a little underpowered to challenge a 5-7th level party) and one major which is quite interesting tactically.  Both combat encounters refer the GM to the Pathfinder Bestiary for statistics which could have easily been included in an appendix for ease of use.  Beyond the combats there are a few loose ends to be investigated.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
