The intrepid Ezren, Harsk, Merisiel, and Valeros find their skills called upon in Varisian port city of Korvosa, where they are plunged into the depths of urban adventure in order to stop riots, combat a plague, root out organized crime, and rescue political prisoners, before escaping to the harsh badlands of the Storval Plateau, where only the friendship of the barbaric Shoanti and a weapon drawn from the heart of a gothic castle can give them the strength to return and depose the evil queen once and for all.

Yes! More Pathfinder! I will preorder this, but am I the only one who preferred the one-hour episodes from Rise of the Runelords to Mummy's Mask?
I listened to both series pretty well back-to-back and enjoyed the more-compressed episodes of series 1. I thought the narration by Ezren to keep skipping ahead to keep the plot flowing (especially in the final episode) added to the "Legends" feel.
In series 2 there were many times where I felt like the plot was not moving fast enough as we listened to every difficulty and conversation.
Maybe I liked how the more-compressed, more-legend-less-novel feel made the range different to Big Finish's Doctor Who output. Maybe it was like a fantasy equivalent of The Liberator Chronicles?
I think the pacing problems in Mummy's Mask had more to do with the story being adapted than the two hour format. Although I could be wrong.
I will wait and see how CotCT (which is closer in structure to RotRL) feels before passing final judgement.
That is quite possible, yes. As such I did not mean to pass judgement, either. I apologize if it came out that way.
It didn't come out that way. I was broadly agreeing with you that the pacing in parts of mummy's mask felt off. I was just suggesting that the length might not be the cause. (I'm hopeful that's the case)
Rise of the Runelords was great.The main feature being the banter and bickering between our intrepid heroes as they ward-off the forces of necromancy and the supernatural.But the one hour slot did give the stories a sense of being rushed,it was a lot of stuff to cram into an hour.Not so the 2nd series which has a two hour slot.This gives the writers more scope and allows the story to unfold at a slower pace,allowing for more detail which I personally like better.For my money slower as the pace is , it is never boring!!!

Didn't say it was boring either (it really wasn't) just that in a few places the pacing was wrong (sometime it skipped over things too quickly - eg the departure of tetasura - other times it dragged a bit - eg the vault of air). It wasn't bad enough to ruin the story and I think the transitory nature of the villains might have been partially to blame.
