I crit!
They’ve added more maps!

Chains of Asmodeus Map Update! 14 Map files have been added to the digital download!

From the creative team:

"We heard that you wanted more battle maps for your excursions across the Nine Hells and so, more battle maps you shall have. We asked cartographer extraordinaire, John Stevenson, to craft eight new battle maps for Chains of Asmodeus and he created the following: Orishada’s Palace (Dis), the two dragon lairs in the Ineffable Trove (Minauros), two locations in the Chasm of Found Things (Stygia), the Eye Market (Maladomini), Klendisk’s Fort (Cania), and the library at the Oasis of the Lethe (Nessus). These lovely maps have been added to the battle maps previously released, and we hope you all have fun with them."
 


Sorry ... there's a lot of posts here (and many are tangentially arguing about "stuff.")
Have any of you purchased this? Read it? Played any of it? What's the popular take on here? Is it any good?
Yes, we have it and I have read some of it (my DM has read most of it). I don’t know how it plays as I don’t DM, but it seems like there are intersecting ideas / story from my quick read. It also seems like combat is not the only or even the preferred option in many cases. Whether or not that is good or bad is up to you.

I'm fine with peaceful resolutions. My players often feel differently. ;)

I'm still waiting until the POD releases so I can get it and the PDF, but from what I've read it's pretty decent as far as adventures go; some of the bosses might be underpowered, like the designers hadn't run vs high level 5e parties before.

BUT it seems to be a very valuable resource and well written for folk that want to run games in the hells.
