CCC-SFBay-02-01 Old Enemies Arise


The alliance between Thay and Mulmaster is stronger than ever, and this does not sit well with some of the neighboring countries; in fact, it appears that one of them is attacking caravans leaving Mulmaster and heading towards Thay.

You have been asked by the Cloaks to investigate the attacks, discover who is behind them, and stop them if you can.

This module appears to be missing from the DDAL content catalogue?

Preface: Great Story-line and Plot! This is an upper end in design from other CCC modules. Needs skilled reviewer who plays exclusively Adventure League 5e (likely a young Millennial AL 5e Purist) to rein foreign ideas present in other game systems to keep it Adventure League 5e Legal.

As described in Introduction for All Adventure League Modules, "Adventure is designed for 3-7 5th-10th level characters and is optimized for 5 characters with APL of 8. Characters outside this range cannot participate in this adventure". In parts 2-5 describes "Uber Strong, L12 x 7 characters" should be removed for future editions of the Module as level 12 characters are clearly outside limits for Adventure League guidance. Additionally, all encounters should be "rechecked or re-specified" as this oversight carries over nearly the entirety of the module barring the "Quick-ling encounter" (200XP). Crunching the encounter numbers (Creating Encounters DMG 81-84), nearly...See more

I can't review this because one of my players bought it, and you can't review something you didn't buy.

Every year, some friends and I take a van to Winter Fantasy. We play a couple of mods on the way out and call it, "Winter VANtasy, the best 10 hours in gaming." This year, they asked me to run a mod on the way back. I had nothing in tier 2, so I took a chance on this. I was able to prep it reasonably well in about 90 minutes, but this was the one criticism I had of it. Specifically, I thought it was tough to run given the prep time I had. A few of the combats had over twice as many stat blocks as were needed, because different difficulty levels required completely different characters (mechanically speaking). It wasn't as simple as "add 20 hit points," but rather, "use this entirely different stat block." It made it hard to navigate through the PDF during the encounters, which hurts the use of a laptop to run the adventure. It also is hard to run the adventure with...See more

Thanks for the comments Robert. I really appreciate you letting me know how your group liked the mod. As far as the different stat blocks go, the admins are very strict on using static stat blocks. I can't modify them. The problem with Tier 2 is the wide range of character power level from very week to very strong, so it really does call for a whole new monster sometimes. I do try to keep the monsters similar though. I'm sorry that was a burden.

Any chance the PDF file could have bookmarks added to it?

I'm not a big PDF expert. I create the pdf by saving the word doc as a pdf. I can do hyperlinks for the word doc. I believe they transfer over. What are you looking for specifically? The other problem is we are given a very specific format that we have to follow. A table of contents isn't included in that. I'm not sure I would be allowed to add bookmarks.

A lot of mods have bookmarks, so it's definitely allowed. The ones in the Season 7 DDAL mods are a good example. I think there's a way to generate them automatically from the headers in the document, but I'm not super familiar with the software.

Creating bookmarks is simple. You should just bookmark the mod manually. I did when I prepped it.

I did too, but it takes up valuable prep time!

Rules Edition(s)
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.
