I totally agree with 42 on how nice this adventure's design is and how simple it was to run but the author's spent way too much time on that and you got a very generic, uninteresting adventure that more or less didn't want you to roleplay anything but the Dudley Do-Right type of adventurer.  Of course it doesn't help when there's on one other person in your group that's actually willing to roleplay (thank goodness for Eagle Prince), nor did the GM want me to express my creative talents in the forum of a "why should I help you" type of characer. 

But for an adventure designed to only take you half way to level 3 I guess you  can't expect too much story but sadly that's the time that players want to develop their character's personalities not afterwords.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!
