Still figuring stuff out!
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?
I have read it, but I haven't run it. I am a big fan of a lot of elements in this adventure, especially the information on each layer of the Nine Hells. There's a lot of information and ideas for running campaigns in the Hells, and the new monsters are awesome, too!

got a chance to look at the book recently, especially around the archdevil stat blocks. I will say the a lot of them do surprisingly little damage for CR25+ creatures...instead focusing on a lot of status effects.

Even the Big A himself is barely cracking 200 DPR and that's with a massive investment of charges from the ruby rod, which for a CR30 isn't all that much. Of course he also can basically autostun the fighter for a full 1 minute, auto dominate one character, etc....so he does have some fun tools to play around with.

All the archdevils have a rather extensive list of lair actions too
