I ran this last night with my full normal table - 6 players, 1st to 3rd level. Unlike DDAL08-01 & 02, this one ran all the up to the FLGS's "hard" get-out time, so just shy of 4 hours. I'm using all 6 T1 mods to lead up to another running of Waterdeep Dragon Heist, this time using the Winter villain, so Waterdeep is frozen solid, with cold winds & heavy snow. As a general note, for those who have not yet read these first 3 modules, I would strongly encourage you to fully read *all three* of them BEFORE you run even the first one. Things get said at the beginning of AL08-03 that I didn't see mentioned a the end of AL08-02 -- which may be the result of my uncareful reading of AL08-02, but whatevs -- which forced me to retcon the end of AL08-02 *just a tiny bit* in order to get my players on the right track. Also, the entire story will make that much more sense if you know what's coming in AL08-03 *before* you run either of the first two ;)

I thought this was *by far* the best of the...See more

I ran this module for the second time yesterday and the party decided to go into the basement this time. Since they didn't last time and I didn't do a good job of noticing it, I never mentioned this in my review of the module, but in the sewers you have a drow sleeping. By definition they can't sleep. I'm not sure how you want to handle this, but I told the party that he had drunk so much that he was in the elven state of reverie. I really don't know if this is an accurate way to portray the situation or not but it's what I went with on the fly.

IIRC, the mod does describe him as sleeping off a drunk, so that's how I described him to my players, so I'd say you handled it properly :)

The new format is easy on the eyes, but is not going to be easy on my printer. Will there be a printer friendly version release?

This new format is a toe dip into a great big ocean of possibilities. We've been getting alot of feedback on this. Definitely in the realm of the feasible in the future.

Something unclear: is coming across an enemy who wields a pistol enough to unlock it for characters? Since it's an unlock-required weapon, it seems like the kind of thing that'd have to be under the "Adventure Rewards" section at the end, but it's not, so...

That's something I want to know for sure before mentioning the +1 bullets listed as treasure to my players.

We'll have some clarification to the ALCC and FAQ in this regard in the next few days.

Awesome, I just got to this part of the adventure and was thinking the same thing Matthew D. I'm looking forward to the clarification pew pew pew lol

Don't mean to be a bother Travis, but do you have any news on that clarification?

Has there been any clarification. I couldn't find it in the updated ALCC.

Thank you for the update, Travis! I've found it in the 8.04 update, David E: the line where it talks about "following the rules described in the ALDMG regarding obtaining mundane items in general". The ALDMG says that any magical or non-magical weapons or equipment the party finds disappears at the end of the adventure unless a) it's listed under a Treasure subheading (in pre-S8's case, still ignore mundane weapons and coinage even then) or b) it's explicitly listed in documentation as unlockable for a certain treasure point cost.

Some examples:
- Potion of Healing (is consumable: can't keep after adventure close, is already on the AL evergreen unlock list)
- Potion of Vitality (is consumable: can't keep after adventure close, adds it to a character's One-Time Unlock list)
- +X Ammunition (is consumable: can't keep after adventure close, adds it to a character's One-Time Unlock list)
- Pistol or Musket (mundane weapon with a TCP cost (in the FAQ), so it's added to...See more

@matthew D All consumables are kept after an adventure, unless stated otherwise. It's in the Dungeon masters guide. So potion of healing, potion of vitality, +X ammunition entries above are wrong; you keep all of those things. You also, as far as I can tell, do not unlock it.

The pistols are only unlocked if the CC entry says so, and the CC entry has no mentions here. You do not unlock them. You unlock them via pilfering a certain armory in dragon heist, and *only in that matter*, via the current rules, unless some certificate or DM quest unlocks them.

David M is correct, Consumables are kept. This includes potions, scrolls, and magical ammo. Unused consumables are divided up between party members at the end of the session.

Where are the Help and Hinder cards?

This is a great question. Appears that they were inadvertently removed during layout. Working on getting a separate doc uploaded to utilize for the time being.

Still trying to get this sorted. We sent it up, but doesn't look like it's been incorporated yet.

A placeholder doc with the cards should be all ready for folks. Hopefully, I'll be able to get it implemented into a revision. Time will tell.

Suggestion. Since the plot still involves the map from 08-01, I think it should be included.

Yeah, were trying to sort out what's going on with it. It's all correct on our end.

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.
