DDAL Season 9 Adventure changes

I look forward to learning more about whatever adventures are going to be apart of Season 9.

Still Saltmarsh and the Dreams of Red Wizards appears to be unseasonal, so it's a good adventure for parties from a mix of seasons.

Anyone from any season can play and get rewards in the saltmarsh adventure. It's the Descent adventure that will be season 9 character reward specific. I just hope saltmarsh will have plenty of adventures to level up a character. I also wonder if Eberron will return next season. If so, that's alot of scattered content pulling players in different directions. Season 9 is specific. Eberron is specific. Season 1-8 is specific. Leaving CCC and red wizard content as the only "open" content.
 
Just read the Ghost of Saltmarsh documentation. If you meet Volo, um Aubreck's and befriend him, he is rich enough to pay for one spellcasting service per PLAYER for what looks to be the modules in the book. So no help for those loyal fans who are going to run multiple characters next season.
PS. Again you don't have cash for spell casting services so you get this funny money.
Do you have a link to that?

With the the draconian restrictions on collecting loot and the transition away from gold to abstract unfulfilling currency, it appears the administrative side has entirely lost track of what makes D&D such a fun and popular game to play.

I got out at the beginning of the last rules non sense.
My home group played through Heist with an AL lite rules set (gold was converted to Dragons and used in the city as currency).
It was a good time.
Half way through Mad Mage and we dumped the magic items rules too.
Saltmarsh will be no AL whatsoever.

I still go to cons; Origins, Gencon, etc...just no AL now. I skipped WF. PF2 and GHR are all of my list for the future.

Some updates. NO progression will only be available to Season 9 PCs. You can loot some of the treasure. Tier 1 and Tier 2 25 GP * your level. Tier 3 75 * your level. Tier 4 750 * your level.

Only tier 4 characters can buy legendary items.
Magic items can only be traded within the same season people. Except for Fai Chen.

New pcs must declare Season or Legacy.

Ok, here are some of changes that stand out.
No progression is allowed in any hardcover instead of just Season 9 hardcover
Dms can give out gold during the session instead of the end. Tier 1 and 2 same 25gp Tier 3 Changed to 180 Gp Tier 4 Down to 700 Gp. But no times your level. But PER HOUR. Sorry Morrus you forgot to punch in no GOLD for you. Mundane Treasure and Loot are gone again.

Dm Rewards. No front loading your lower tier PCs with higher tier points. So you can't give your new pc 8 AP and 16 TP .

The first comment on that page:

"Personally, I absolutely hate the way AL does treasure and magic items."

Where is that feature from?
Not really an alternate "class" feature, but one of the Background hooks included in Ghosts of Saltmarsh (which are quite good): basically, an Acolyte gets to choose between being a junior dude at the only temple in town with a priest for a boss, or being the fresh faced missionary setting up a new shop with a few parishioners prepagckaged.
