Many thanks to everyone who joined me to play Lamentations of the Flame Princess.
The session one group managed to escape(?) the destruction of the city by freeing Loki after surviving the zombie-infested streets.
In session two, the players decided to explore the insides of the giant while he was passed out. Although they didn't prevent him from becoming a zombie and destroying Skaarsport, they did manage a quick escape and had some gold in their pockets.
My own takeaways from the game:
Make adventure hooks and clues more obvious.
Create stronger incentives to stay in the city and make a stand.
Get better at giving all characters a spotlight moment.
If you want to PM me or post here, I welcome your feedback. Knowing what worked for you and what didn't, and what you would want to see more of is very helpful and helps me improve as a GM.
