This is too small for PoD. Maybe with some other products we want to publish :)

After the first time I read it I rated this highly. But now I'm sure that there's not enough Adventure here for an entire session. There's also not really anything particularly dangerous for action-oriented PCs to keep doing it. I feel like it is half an adventure. I would love to know something I can add to this to flush it out and maybe add a real element of danger.

Gorillaconda sure is and wants to be a campy, light-hearted investigation adventure, with basically one final dangerous scene. For more combat-oriented groups you can easily gauge up risks by adding a few more intense combat scenes.
A few ideas:
- Koenig the Gorilla might show up with a pack of lesser primates, using the same stats as Bonga's.
- Director Bahia might hire a band of cheap Desperados (or less cheap Gangsters, or definitely not cheap Professionals... depending on how combat-oriented your group is) to stop the heroes. Such encounter might be inserted during the "Off-road truck" and/or "Vanished cameras" complications.
Hope this helps!
Your feedback was much appreciated and we'll keep it in mind when writing our next adventures.

Don't get me wrong -- my group had a BLAST with this scenario. I changed the starlet to real-world Juliette Lewis, that really worked! The players really loved the scenario and even though our group only plays one shots, they ALL told me they want to come back to San Jose for more adventures! So I would say the scenario is a success. I think it has plenty of action scenes, but I guess there is one weak link [SPOILERS AHEAD]
It says that by the final scene they will know the real story. But the GM has to decide how they get that info. I don't need more action scenes, but maybe a little more to develop the plot behind the film's curse.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
