I have received feedback that reported close to 25 hours.
It is also an open world, non linear adventure so a lot depends on how much a player chooses to explore and complete. It is definitely several hours worth of playtime.

Wow, that must have been an incredible amount of work. Much larger than I expected. Can't wait.

Thank you. This is a pretty large campaign, and although I have not timed a complete playthrough, I have received feedback that reported close to 25 hours. It is also an open world, non linear adventure so a lot depends on how much a player chooses to explore and complete. It is definitely several hours worth of playtime.


I played the iceblink version one year ago or so, it was far from complete and i didn't even complete all the content available then and my playtime was over 20 hours already (22 from memory).
The module probably plays faster in KotC 2 engine, still, i suspect it's even longer if you take your time thoroughly exploring every corner and completing every single quest.

Thanks, that is good to know. It seems 20 or more hours is a fair estimate, depending on playstyle. I've noticed that combat is more challenging, which is to be expected, with all the additional abilities and maneuvers available to enemies.
