Banquet of the Damned

Summary

We ended up taking this video down because the quality was so bad but I thought I would leave the review up in case it helps any other DMs out there. SPOILERS AHEAD: This one starts off with the players investigating a suspecious fire in a small town. The party finds out that there is a pie competition coming up in the next few days and that the fire targeted the oven of one of the front-runners. They discover that there are only two serious competitors in the competition. They realize that the other competitor had nothing to do with the fire, but is in fact being possessed by a demon of gluttony to contaminate his own pies to possess more of the townsfolk. It was actually the victims daughter that blew up the stove, as she was upset that her dad was always fighting with the other competitor. After realizing that the man is possessed, the players will try to find out where the demon is. Tracking the demon leads out of town, through an ambush of possessed elves, to a hunters cottage where there is a demon of gluttony in wait. The journey ends with either an exorcism of the demon or the killing of the demon (or players).

This module was a blast to DM. The PDF quality is amazing. It has great art, great flow, easy to follow, and nice maps. It was extremely easy to prep for this. You could probably get a way with spending around two hours to prep. The adventure itself will probably run between 3-5 hours depending on your group. I skipped the ambush at the end to make up for some time which is a shame because it is a pretty cool combat encounter. It is a shame that our video quality for this one is so terrible (it was our first ever recording) because it was a really great module. It is more roleplay heavy than combat, but that is what my group likes. If you have a group that just likes to swing swords then they may be a little let down by this one as it only has 1-4 combat encounters depending on paths (my group had two). I highly recommend this one if your group likes investigatin/roleplay modules like mine does.
