This is a nasty adventure (subject matter wise), and it is a great intro to Season 3 - Hillsfar. If your players do not absolutely despise the Red Plumes by the end of the adventure, then you have not done your job. I played up the nastiness to set the tone for the rest of Season 3. A simple investigation turns into much more, and the final fight in the Hillsfar Arena is truly epic. The players think they've got it made from the start of the arena, but wait there's more! And then there's even more! Plus the NPCs set up the rest of Season 3 nicely.
