Reign in Hell: Demonic Skirmish Combat is a fast, brutal, miniatures-agnostic tabletop wargaming ruleset that pits your hand-picked cabal of demons against your opponent’s to determine who gets to reshape the ruins of Hell to fit their Philosophy. Do you want to restore Hell to its former glory? Tear it all down and watch it burn? Or perhaps try to head back to Earth for some payback? You can customize your cabal, use whatever demonic miniatures you’d like, and tell the stories of your battles through the in-depth campaign system. We’ll see you in Hell.

Designed by wargaming YouTube nerds Adam Loper (Tabletop Minions) and Vince Venturella (Warhammer Weekly) - Reign in Hell is designed as a fun, quick skirmish game that allows you to play using the demon models you may already have from many different fantasy games out there, or build (or 3D print) new ones to make your cabal exactly the way you envision. The campaign system is robust, and allows for growth and customization for your demons as they gain Titles and discover Relics and Essences to increase their powers.

The only material updates were to The Beast scenario and correcting the Devout table. All other changes were spelling and grammar.

This game looks awesome and I am looking forward to building a cabal to try it out. If I could make one comment though, it would be very helpful if the PDF was bookmarked so we could easily find the various rules and sections.

Here is what I've found as the (substantive) errata so far from V2 to V3

P24 Added (they may not be hit on a 2) to Screaming Shield
P25 Corrected Philosophy/Devout table (use text for proper association)
P53 Added (roll for additional players as necessary) in setup
P56 Added "The Beast" stats
P62 clarified second line of Running skirmish as an example
Multiple places: change “additional player roll as necessary” to “roll for additional players as necessary”

Yes, but the book is printed in black and white. Otherwise, I used the art from the book in the video.

Very cool! I just watched a flip-thru review of it on YT from 2+Tough. The art looks good but somewhat sparse. Have you guys considered using grayscale versions of some of the mini photography from your official video on this site? It might add a little more eye candy to the text only pages.

Yes I have the audacity to correct the author ;) -- The back cover is full color and the front cover contains an element of red (ie the eyes of the demon). The page contents are rendered in an easy to read gray scale that has layered gradients to show texture and shading.

Demented have 2 abilities (Unpredictable Defense and Disorder) that look for triples.
Do these triples have to be natural rolls or can I cause a triple using rerolls or soul dice?
Customer avatar
Vincent V June 16, 2021 1:39 pm UTC
They can be modified rolls (i.e. after replacement with a soul dice or something else). THis was intentional, we used "natural" anytime we wanted a roll to be just the dice,but this was a fun chance for fate to take a hand. Hope that helps.

Running the system through atm, I like a lot of the things you've done! I particularly like the scenario specific rewards, it always feels like there's something to gun for.

Few things causing confusion so far,

1.) I can't find the specifics to model deployment at the start of a game. Does everything drop at once? Alternating drops?
2.) Do demons 'exhaust' once they activate? That is to say, can I stack my 7 activations onto one model ala Infinity? I've gone through the sections and I'm *pretty sure* they don't, but I can't find the concrete ruling.
3.) Does the Schemer's Master Manipulator ability exchange the user's turn for the target's? Does the Schemer take it's turn at all, or does it just full stop give it to another model? And can I re-activate a model that's already activated prior? This again ties into the 'exhausted' state being a thing or not.

Thanks!

Great questions, most of this will be addressed in an FAQ coming shortly, but I will clarify here.

1) Yes, you just both deploy all your forces, setting up your models in the deploymet area, there really wasn't any reason to make it more complicated.
2) Yes, if you look at the current PDF (make sure you have the newest file) we went back and made this extra explicit. You cannot activate a demon more than once per round.
3) No, if you look at how it's worded, once the Schemer has completed his Activation, he can make another demon "jump the line" if they are within range. He can use any activation dice and then make another demon activate immediately, skipping the normal order. No he cannot do it to a demon that has already activated as per #2 above, as a demon can never activate twice.

Cheers for clarifications! Just grabbed the latest PDF, I was working off the older one.

A lot of your design decisions for the campaign progression systems are really cool. Lots of interesting decision making. I'm working on a more thorough review so I'll pop back in here to ask questions if I stumble onto anything that isn't covered by the upcoming FAQ.

Few more issues, all campaign related this time around.

1) Is there a limit to the soul dice you can collect per game? The cabal sheets imply a limit of 6, but on occasion (with the broker cabal specifically) I end up getting more than that.

2) What happens if a scenario comes to a draw? I managed this in Relic Hunters, with both cabals having 2 relics each at the end of round 5. i ruled it as 'both cabals lose' as neither had more relics than the other.

3) In the scenario Desecration can you do your combat styles on the objectives? Can you use special abilities with attacks on objectives? i.e. doing Impaling Charge at one with a spined demon for rerolls.
Customer avatar
Vincent V June 15, 2021 6:25 pm UTC
Sure, happy to help.

1) No limit, the limit on the paper is just the physical space.
2) You had a great game. There is no Victor (hence no bonus XP), but no other impacts. Proceed with the campaign as normal.
3) Yes, when you activate you choose your combat style, so there is no reason you couldn't utilize them when attacking an objective as well.

Always Blind Test.
Writers and Close Playtesters "know" how it works and gloss over issues.
Worse I saw was a game that forgot the Combat rules, they were missing from the book, and No One noticed before publishing.

Good Luck.
But please, Always Blind Test.
A Blind test is where you give the rules or game to a group, and let them go.
You do not answer questions, no interaction.
It will show you the holes quickly.

Yep, it's a great piece of advice, it's something we did with this book for sure, we actually recruited several individuals to read over with no interaction and give us any and all feedback, it was very helpful.

We are pushing hard, unforunately, we are at the mercy of lightning source to approve, we've been emailing more or less every day, but it should be soon. I promise we are going to move it along as fast as we have the power to do so.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
