DDAL05-14 Reeducation (5e)
by Paige M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 11:46:49

The intro hook for this makes it sound like the characters are walking into a dire situation. Something that could defeat a faction leader demands something impressive..That’s where the module falls flat. None of the combats are exciting and only one has the potential to be slightly scary. Every combat will need to be adjusted to make it feel like a challenge.

The final “cutscene” seems like a joke. After how easy all of the combats were it made no sense to run away from one. Even with “overwhelming numbers” it felt like tier 3 characters should be able to make short work of anything the as-written-module could throw at them.

The maps are too small for the size of the encounters and I wonder if the “1 square = 5ft “should have really been “1 square = 10ft”

DDAL05-17 Hartkiller's Horn (5e)
by Paige M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 10:49:35

Overall this is a very fun adventure to run and I would recommend it to anyone - especially if you have played in the other season 5, tier 2 modules. I almost want to give this a 5 star rating for “The Beast” combat alone.

Pros: The characters have choices that feel important to the story. “The Beast” is a challenging fight and is the most fun enemy I have run this season.

Neutral: “The Beast” has real potential to TPK.

Cons: The final fight was a let down, especially after “The Beast”. As written it is very simple and seems like it was added to meet the XP quota. Several grammar errors. This would benefit from being proofread and re-uploaded.

DDEX1-01 Defiance in Phlan (5e)
by Peter R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 09:54:18

Quite a good spread of introductory quests that will allow new and returning legacy players to experience many facets of 5e in short, 1hr sessions. There are puzzle missions, combat dedicated missions, and missions where the whole scenario can be run with roleplaying. Of all the missions, the players I have DM'd for seem to enjoy mission 3 the most.

DDEX03-14 Death on the Wall (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:48:47

Death on the Wall is described as a short adventure but in reality it is not. The content is short but it is a situational adventure, it actually requires the players to think and plan carefully on what they are supposed to do. If the players make a mistake or miss an opportunity then they will get stuck on the planning part again. Despite it being a two hour adventure the adventure may last a longer time due to the planning and thinking the players will need to do. There is an opportunity for roleplaying here but more on the planning and scouting is spent on the adventure than the roleplay and combat. Overall, this adventure would be good for players who like to think and plan for situations but not really that good for players that are into action and combat. Charging into combat in this adventure is not recommended.

DDEX3-01 Harried in Hillsfar (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:43:08

Harried in Hillsfar is the introductory adventure to the Rage of Demons storyline. It's good in a way that it introduces the character to the different situations and things that they may encounter during the storyline. It has combat in every part and is interesting in a way that will keep the player's interested in what the hell is really going on in Hillsfar. It even hints at something later on during the adventures. It's a good adventure to play for people who are new to Dungeons and Dragons.

DDEX3-02 Shackles of Blood (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:40:59

Shackles of Blood is an interesting adventure, some may be interested to play in it because of the introduction or summary that offers a bit of mystery. For me, this module is good because it introduces the characters to events that explain the situation in Hillsfar. The introduction hook is good because it lets the character get invested in solving the mystery. Has a bit of roleplay and investigating to keep up the mystery which is good, a lot of combat that will please anyone that is into action. However, a word of warning. There is a lot of combat in this adventure but the combat is deadly for low level characters or players that are new to the game. It's weird that this is one of the early adventures in the Rage of Demons story line but the combat included here is deadly for low levels and can actually lead to a character dying if they don't do the battle well. Overall, I would recommend this adventure to players whi are more experienced and familiar in Dungeons and Dragons.

DDEX3-06 No Foolish Matter (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:32:40

No Foolish Matter is a short adventure that contains a bit of roleplaying and combat. There isn't much to it except for exploring the creepy carnival which can be a fun subject of interest for the characters. The way the creepiness of the carnival is shown in the different scenes is good but there are a lot of NPCs that don't really have much use in the adventure and just provide a bit of roleplay opportunity for the players. This module contributes to the overall strange happenings or events that transpire during the Rage of Demons storyline. It's a short adventure and can be fun to give your player's the creepy carnival experience.

DDAL05-01 Treasure of the Broken Hoard (5e)
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:30:11

This one was kind of hit or miss for me. I like the backstory with searching for the fallen Dragon Cult treasure and all, but these missions aren't as well written as in past seasons. Mini goblin swarm was forgettable. The "secret word" puzzle guessing was a waste of time. The pit traps with rats actually came off really well-so that was a highlight. Fire room was a bit of a mess. The shrine at least served well to set up the plot for the season. So out of all of that, only part 5 was great, part 3 was decent too, but the rest just didn't work.

DDEX3-10 Quelling the Horde (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:28:59

Quelling the Horde is like an introductory adventure to get the players familiar with Hillsfar or what is the situation there. The adventure has a great hook that will get the players to follow the scenes and will introduce them well to the history and situation in Hillsfar. The combat in the later parts can actually be deadly for the players. There is a lot of combat in the later part of the adventure and around 2 encounters there are potentially deadly to low level players. I recommend this adventure if you are looking for a bit of challenging combat.

DDEX3-12 Hillsfar Reclaimed (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:25:40

Hillsfar Reclaimed is a good adventure for players who are more into the roleplaying aspect of D&D. Not much combat if you do roleplay well. If you do go into combat it will probably not end well for the players if they charge into the situation. Overall, a decent adventure with lots of opportunity for roleplay and a introduces the players to a new story line within the Rage of Demons. The adventure is recommended for players that like to roleplay and do the sneaky stuff.

DDEX3-03 The Occupation of Szith Morcane (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:20:24

Occupation of Szith Morcane tells us the story about Szith Morcane and the situation with the drows in the underdark. It has an easy to use hook to get the players to agree to join and it has a few roleplay instances but the combat is heavy in this adventure. There is a lot of exploration and action to do in this adventure and most of the combat can be a bit tough for the characters if they don't fight well. Overall, this adventure adds a bit of good story to the Rage of Demons story line and has lots of action in it. I recommend this for players who like to fight and are excited about challenging combat.

DDEX3-04 It's All in the Blood (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:17:54

A very long adventure and one of the few early tier 3 adventures that has been offered before. I find this adventure to be quite long and the time can even extend further than 8 hours. The first part has the introduction and sets the scene and story for the characters. Almost all of the parts that followed are mostly getting from one place to the next and combat. There is a bit of roleplay included in the different parts but the adventure itself is very combat heavy and overall it would take quite a bit of time to finish this adventure since it is 8 hours long so it may be divided into sessions.

DDAL05-15 Reclamation (5e)
by Tim L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:14:37

ID fights can go 1 of 2 ways, either a quick nothing fight, or borderline TPK-there is really no in between with an enemy like this. Beyond that there wasn't much (the naga fight maybe if they hit DP?). The puzzle was kind of fun, and a nice break (especially after playing combat heavy 5-14 early that night). This one was good, but the other 3 T3 were better.

DDEX3-07 Herald of the Moon (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:14:06

Herald of the Moon is a decent adventure, it can be ran anytime during the Rage of Demons story line. The first part introduces the character to the situation and gives them a chance to talk to the NPC and do a bit of roleplay. The second part includes the travelling to get to the location they need to be, they have to pass through a forest that contains danger and encounters. The last part has the characters arrive at their location and begin the whole dungeon crawling thing to achieve their goal. It has a bit of surprises but the combat is not that challenging if the characters play smart and are familiar with combat. This adventure can be considered a short side story in the Rage of Demons story line and it doesn't really affect the entire story so it can be ran and played anytime quite easily. The only thing that connects this to the Rage of Demons story line is the notable locations that the characters are in or will go through.

DDEX3-08 The Malady of Elventree (5e)
by Chester C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/12/2017 08:09:48

The Malady of Elventree is an adventure that is part of the Rage of Demons story line. It starts out with the characters in an elven city where they will do a bit of roleplay with the guests and continue from there with a problem arising in the party. They are then sent out to investigate and it leads them to someplace that is a common location for the story line. The adventure is straight and scenes are set to come after one another so it is quite easy to run. The combat can be a bit of a challenge it depends on how the players act and how they strategize but overall the adventure is more of a side story that tells of a danger that is starting in Faerun.
