We’re going to Hell! Judge’s Guild put out a module called Inferno in 1980, ostensibly based on Dante’s Divine Comedy. It’s a LOT. Caleb, Rob Stith (from the Orpheus Protocol) and Noah all followed me into this devilish scenario. We have so much to talk about that we are going to make a mini series of this journey as we could only get about halfway through the original module in this episode. There’s also a 2014 remake of the scenario that completes the entire 9 circles of Hell!

Know Evil was such a long and complex campaign that no one image could include all of it. Instead, we’re going with an illustration for each of the tiers, starting with Venus! We also have some of the images as close-ups.
Clockwise from top, we have the Venusian pirates’ aerostats burning as our heroes make their escape; S.A.I.R.O.C., the multi-ton spider-tank with lots of love to give; The Claudias, a single ego powering a multi-bodied crime syndicate; SAIROC earnestly befriending Augustine, the devout but fantastically powerful AI; Faye-Yin freerunning her way across the rooftops; Preston cleaning up at the mahjong table; Preston Crowley, octomorph reality show star and swashbuckling swordmaster; The mysterious Dr. Stefansson in a child morph, commanding a fearsome spherical warbot; Bartleby’s muse, the menacing March Hare; Bartleby, traumatised psycho-surgeon and gunslinger; Faye-Yin sliding under SAIROC amidst a fierce gunfight; Gerard’s brutal victory in the fighting pits over his octomorph foe; Bartleby instigating a mass murder-suicide to escape a virtual-reality hellscape; Faye-Yin Kirkpatrick, light-footed legitimate businesswoman; Preston in a hermaphroditic pleasure-morph, wreaking havoc with twin swords; Preston’s muse, the alluring Fhtagn; Gerard, the bioconservative man-mountain gladiator; and the desiccated remains of an unlucky worker on the THOUGHT station.
