[Video Review: https://youtu.be/WQINBcjW_4M ]Hellbound Heists is a fantastic collection of upper tier diabolical adventures! If this is your first delve into the Nine Hells of the Forgotten Realms, fear not, the introduction includes a wealth of information summarizing each layer, explaining how a party may enter and leave the hells, and how the environment weighs on a party’s moral endurance through a corruption mechanic. Plus, the new background and faction provide simple pathways for players to weave their characters into the setting. The adventures range from literally railroaded (yes, there’s a train) to a sandbox masquerade -- my favorite quest! The layout is professional, and while the art ranges in quality, I particularly enjoy the pieces harkening back to the classic, inky black and white D&D art style.
Disclaimer: The project manager did send me a complimentary PDF copy for use in my video review (link above), but I still may buy the book because I know I’ll be more likely to run these adventures if I can leisurely read them in print!
