The Good:

  • The final encounter felt like PvP. It was fun.
  • The timed aspect is beautiful.
  • The encounters have a very decent variety.

The Bad:

  • Most encounters are skippable.
  • The last location/dungeon is a bit uninteresting

The Recommendation:

  • Run Occupation of Szith Morcane first.
  • Run it with parties who have members who played in your Occupation of Szith Morcane. It would change the dynamics of a certain encounter so beautifully.

Recommend Purchase: Yes. XP Range: 4,500-6,000 Note: WotC/DDAL doesn't do ANY cleanup or editing, even when blatant errors are pointed out.

I recommend downloading the State of Hillsfar document and reading that before running any Season 3 module.

Why is Hillsfar a relevant setting at this time? Walls and refugees. The Great Law of Humanity: Only humans are allowed within Hillsfar. The Great Law of Trade: Do not interfere with any legitimate trade.

Does Hilsfar have anything to do with the Season 3 Hardcover - Out of the Abyss? Not really.

+++++++++++++++++++ Note: No Season 1, 2, or 3 module has a digital certificate to print because WotC says they can't accept volunteer help for legal reasons and won't allow their paid employees to create the certificates even though they have the templates.

The DMSGUILD site segregates reviews between people who've purchased it here and everyone else. They do NOT have a robust rating system, relying instead on the 5-star model.

Herald of the moon took us 6 hours due to the many possibilities and long exploration in chapter 3. There are many fights that take a lot out of the party during their journey, intending to make the boss fight harder due to the lack of resources.

The exploration in chapters 1,2 gave the characters time to show their benevolent side and RP really well. The concern is that the boss fight at the end isn’t appropriately scaled due to the fact that the characters are expected to be whittled down by then.

Also a technical concern is: I feel that there is no significant detriment to the adventure if you let the shade coin run out.

Herald of the Moon was really fun. I wish more 'time sensitive' mods would utilize features like the checklist on this mod. That was an easy 'time' element to keep track of. One issue I have with the older mods is that when they say 4 hour mod, its usually longer. There were parts that I had to rush the party through, as we were under a strict 4 hour time constraint. Other than that, the combat was fun, there was alot of roleplay opportunities, and it includes secret missions, which my party really wanted. It was a lot of fun to run, even though it was rushed towards the end.

Herald of the Moon is a decent adventure, it can be ran anytime during the Rage of Demons story line. The first part introduces the character to the situation and gives them a chance to talk to the NPC and do a bit of roleplay. The second part includes the travelling to get to the location they need to be, they have to pass through a forest that contains danger and encounters. The last part has the characters arrive at their location and begin the whole dungeon crawling thing to achieve their goal. It has a bit of surprises but the combat is not that challenging if the characters play smart and are familiar with combat. This adventure can be considered a short side story in the Rage of Demons story line and it doesn't really affect the entire story so it can be ran and played anytime quite easily. The only thing that connects this to the Rage of Demons story line is the notable locations that the characters are in or will go through.

Decent module, can be difficult to get a party to do something other than kill the Drow.
