While overall I found the series well balanced in the world of problem solving, intrigue, and combat, this one I felt was oddly lacking. I found it be rather dry if you're looking for interesting combat encounters. Literally you can go through the entire encounter and do nothing but play "whodunit". I would of added at the very least another skirmish or something funny like a succubis applying for citizenship

Agreed. Not to mention, if you're playing the mod hot off of 09-01, (spoilers for both mods) the murder mystery is less engaging here than in the prequel. There are very few suspects, which the module almost immediately railroads down to only 1.

Thanks for the comments! It's absolutely intended to be a social-focused adventure that can be done with little to no combat.

If you have a particularly strong group and are looking to increase the combat difficulty in Bonus Objective A, I recommend looking in the MTF section on the specific cult for the sort of enemies that could be used to beef it up.

If Harwin left his shop a couple of days ago, then why is he still in town when the party checks out his shop?

Hi, this is an error an in the wording of the text here and a correction has been sent to the editors.

The correct sequence of events is: two days ago, Harwin suddenly decided that he needed to go see the shearing operations. He wasn't scheduled to leave until today.

Why is Dara suddenly a 10-year old?

Hi, is she listed as a different age somewhere? 10 is correct according to my references.

In DDAL09-01 she is described as a "young woman" in the Dramatis Personae section.

"A young girl of 10" is the correct description of Dara. The error may be in 9-1 if she's described as something else.

The error is in 01. In 02,04,05,06 she is described as a 10 yr old girl. I had the same initial confusion as I was scheduled to run all 7 mods at GHC. Since I ran it there I received the copy free so I cannot leave a review. I do have to say with the right group and the ability to RP the NPCs this was a very enjoyable mod. No combat as I ran it in a 2 hr slot, and everyone really enjoyed it.

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.
