D&D Beyond: Tricking Asmodeus

Asmodeus is rightfully damn hard to trick. Your best bet is seeking out someone else who is also incredibly cunning and intelligent, and asking them for a plan. Hopefully they ask a somewhat more benevolent price than Asmodeus, but securing their help would certainly be an adventure of its own.

They've been hinting at Tharizdun for awhile. One of them mentioned or at least supported the observation recently that Tharizdun was the ultimate D&D villain.

There were spooky-dooky hints about Tharizdun in Princes of the Apocalypse, but it never quite went all the way in detail.

Two things I could see them do in the next few years:

1. Do a Ghosts of Saltmarsh style reprint with the Temple of Elemental Evil, Lost Caverns of Tsjocanth, and Temple of Tharizdun (were there any Dungeon magazine Adventures tied to the Elder Elemental Eye/Tharizdun?)

2. A sort of Avengers: End Game where high level PCs need to team up with all sorts of cosmic dudes, including Asmodwus and Orcus, to stop Thano...I mean, Tharizdun.
 
Considering how TSR screwed over Gary Gygax I wouldn't feel right for a Tharizdun mention without there being a straight statement that they were doing it to honor him and make amends for how their previous owners treated him.

I mean, Wizards of the Coast paid him a big wad of straight cash money over 20 years ago to settle all outstanding issues, so that's not a live problem.
