DDAL09-06 Infernal Insurgency


Fai Chen reveals that a draft of the Hellriders’ original attack plan might still exist, and it won’t be easy to get it. If you can recover these, it would be extremely helpful in your quest to locate their remains and free their spirits. It might very well be a suicide mission, though when you’re in Avernus, what isn’t? Fortunately, the wily merchant has just the plan for a group of heroes unconcerned with the odds. Part Two of the Behind Infernal Lines series.

A Four to Six Hour Adventure for 5th to 10th Level Characters (APL 8)

Here is my box text I hope it helps.
Dara to pcs page 3 “we need to find the Dump. The Dump is the former Void Chateau. The house, villa, whatever you want to call it; was owed by Chalice Void a mage who played with the dark arts and lost. It is a weapons R&D workshop. They are working on repeating crossbows, saber of just light, and the unholy hand grenade of Asmodeus. “Go to page 4 call to action.
Fai Chen page 4 add bottom of box text “We don’t know the location of the dump. Our attempts to find it by magic have been block by infernal inference and radio jamming. My duplicates have some possible leads you can follow up on. Z’neth the beast master of the pens has spoken about the dump. Elliach has been working on some hand grenades. Flip Franklins a new arrival needs work; I think he is a mercenary. Burney the barber has heard rumors of a silver dragon somewhere nearby. As always Fhet’ahla can authorize contracts. Remember no fighting or casting spells inside Emporium grounds.”...See more

this is helpful! One thing: I don't think soul coins work that way: the souls in the coins mean the people are dead, not living. The Tarkleby reference is just a mistake

Questions for Author: Finally started to run this

How are the transmutation bombs triggered? Is this just handwaved or is there supposed to be a set fuse duration

A. Its unclear what the consequences and rationale for having to leave and return to the emporium secretly are. What if they aren't secretive? What would happen? Are they breaking a contract? Forfeiting their souls? Should they get the story award?

B. Tarkleby is kept by Mahadi because Mahadi has “his coin” when if you’re in a soul coin you are presumably not running a shop? Or is Grimble supposed to be a soulless gnome?

C. The P.R.A.T " “They must destroy the prototype and the plans, or risk having it show up later in the course of their missions hunting for Dara!“ There is no story award for completing this. Should this be tracked by the PCs? How would this be known otherwise?

D. There is conflict in the description of the terror troop between main text and the dramatis personae. What are the actual names of the Terror Troop? How many are there? What are their genders and races?. Is a "Trans male" a transman or a transwoman? I could guess but...See more

This mod is bloated (44 pages yikes) with a frustrating layout and clearly rushed editing. It is full of typos and errors and the maps are almost illegible. The story is very challenging to follow and frankly is even more of a railroad than a typical seasonal mod. I really enjoyed the tier 1 adventures for this season but have been very disappointed with the quality of writing for the tier 2 mods.

I seriously hope that an updated version of this adventure comes out soon, at least fixing the gross errors (the mod claims the DM earns ACP and TCP).

The maps on this adventure are just terrible.

Way too dark, with all black backgrounds, and horrible color grading that hides important details, making them even more difficult to understand.

These maps need to be seriously re-corrected in a photo editing software tool.

Strongly recommend DM's auto-correct these through image editing software before running, especially if maps are being given out to players or used with a virtual tabletop.

The adventure could also seriously benefit from a side view map, one that show all the elevations, entry points, and the where each map level is in relation to the others. (Hint: Despite higher numbered areas, the Lower Level of the Dump is actually *below* the Ground Level).

Is the magic bullet found in the chest supposed to be a sling bullet or a pistol bullet?
Customer avatar

Or an arrow? Since the end text describes it as an arrow

Nah, that's just a copy of the DMG text for the item entry. They're required to put that without any changes. It's very clearly a bullet - but what kind?

What weapons use bullets?
Customer avatar
Mark M January 04, 2020 2:11 pm UTC
Slings, muskets, pistols.

the only thing described in the rules as a "bullet" is a for a Renaissance or modern weapon. The Sling Bullet is called a sling bullet. Until there is errata, I'm assuming its for a smokepowder weapon.

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.
