Glad you enjoyed it! Those types of situations are fairly uncommon, but I remember a couple of adventures with similar sections. The Tomb of Annihilation-related adventure Ruins of Hisari includes a section where the PCs are transformed into various yuan-ti. It's a great adventure overall, but I found that section unsatisfactory and that was one of the impetuses which inspired me to write this adventure. The Eberron adventure A Century of Ashes includes a section where the PCs play NPCs as they relive past events. That was pretty cool. Lastly, several of the hardcovers include a lot of allied NPCs in certain sections which the players can take control of if desired. Out of the Abyss with the numerous prisoners and Storm King's Thunder with the storm giants in the final chapter come to mind.

I always buy your modules as you include a Fantasy Grounds module with them.

A 2 hour module with a fantasy grounds conversion is almost an insta-buy from me. I'll review it soon.

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.
