I'm with Micah, this was a tangent to this thread that doesn't need more.
@dave2008 and @Micah Sweet: Speaking as an outside observer, perhaps you could each provide ways in which you think the current version of D&D is or is not putting world before story? Because this back and forth, without examples, is not particularly illuminating.

(Though this also might be a good subject for another thread, since it seems pretty tangential.)
Yeah. I'm inclined to let it go.

Still figuring stuff out!
I gotta say, now that I've read the adventure, I'm very impressed! The maps of each layer of the Hells are neat, and the various stat blocks for the new monsters and archdevils are very well done! There's a few minor spelling things that could've been caught, but nothing too bad! It certainly is worth the price, in my opinion.

Given that this book had a cultural consultant, does it include any notes about the fact that Asmodeus is a demon in a book (Tobit) held as Sacred Scripture by a majority of the world's Christians, and his use and portrayal in D&D may seem inaccurate or misguided to some?
You know very well there's some people for whom the zeitgeist doesn't accomodate their hurt feelings.

I so want a Roll20 conversion of this module. Sadly, from what I can gather, it doesn't look there ever will be one. Which means I need to figure out how to build maps in Roll20
