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.

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.

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.

You would, so my advice would be if you are looking for the book, wait a couple of days for when the book is available. UNforunately, the interface doesn't have a way to give credit for previous purchases.

I just bought the print/pdf combo the morning of June 1st before the takedown, will I still be receiving the original version or will it be delayed for a revised edition to become available? Im content either way, just want to get a physical sooner than later as I read/understand things in physical media vs the pdf/digital versions easier. Thanks in advance, very excited to get into this game & try to spread it amongst my LGS/play groups!

Matthew, I believe most people who purchased before the cut off will receive the original version, that being said, this was close enough I am not sure, we are trying to speed the review process as much as possible to make sure people get the new book in their hands, but it will ultimately fall to how the printer satisfies the order. In either event, if you do get an older version, that single page that needs a rules correction from our website directly. You can also download this updated PDF immediately.

Excited to try out the game! One question on Experience. The Experience table says XP Gained, yet there's no XP field in the warband record sheets provided. Are XP reset between games? (I don't think so, because earning 20+ XP in one game seems unlikely).
Customer avatar
Vincent V June 01, 2021 6:04 pm UTC
Great question, we assumed people would track either off to the side or separately, as we weren't sure who would use the sheet for one-off vs. campaign, but it's a great idea for a "campaign" playsheet with a tracker for that as well. You do aggregate it over games. :)

I really like what you are trying to do with these rules, but there are quite a few typos and grammatical errors. You really need someone outside of yourselves to go over this material to catch that sort of stuff (and not just a fan or fellow gamer, but someone who is familiar with technical writings such as manuals or instructions - since the rules are the instructions on how to play).

As a long-time wargamer, I can see what you are trying to say in certain parts of the rules, but if it ever became an issue of rules-as-written versus rules-as-intended, I can see where there might be some questions.

As the creators, you know what you are trying to convey to the players, but you could easily read over a mistyped or vague bit of text and autocorrect it in your brain because you know what it is "supposed" to say (speaking from experience here).

Hopefully it all gets sorted out and corrected, but this is something you should consider for your future endeavors. Looking...See more

The Leader Bonus and Devout Special Ability: One With Nothing (these two different abilities should probably not have the same name, even though they have similar properties of translocation).

And here is a clarification/re-write of one rule I thought was a little confusing in its wording (and if my interpretation is wrong, let me know, because I don't want to play it wrong with my group)

Schemer Special Ability: Master Manipilator - When the Schemer has completed its activation, you may choose to immediately activate one of your other demons within 12" of the Schemer by expending an unspent die from your set of activation dice. In addition, once per round when the Schemer is declared the target of an attack, you may remove an unspent activation die and have the Schemer perform a move to escape the attack. Once this move is resolved, the attacker may still target another opponent that is within range.

Oh, and please clarify the Leader Relic: Screaming Shield for me....See more
Customer avatar
Vincent V May 31, 2021 2:14 am UTC
Good feedback, you are correct on the Master Manipulator, he allows for Chain activations and can also burn an additional dice to move away from an attacker. I wrote it as I did to show the language of the die removal actually being the trigger for clarity, sorry it didn't land that way.

As to the Screaming sheild, I am going to clarify on that, as I got one other question about it. It means the demon can never be hit on a 2. As in this case, hitting on a 2 is better than hitting on a 3. So basically, when being attacked by a demon with a higher combat score, they can never be hit on a 2+, only a 3+.

Trevor L May 31, 2021 3:33 am UTC

Ok, so it should read something like: A demon with this artifact can only be hit with an attack roll of 3 or better.

(although, technically this does not make it any harder for opponents with equal or lower combat scores to land a hit). I know it's too late to make any changes to your rules now, but could I suggest something like: A demon with this artifact can only be hit with an attack roll of 5 or better [much harder to hit]

-OR-

This artifact allows the demon to replace one of the attacker's die rolls with a 1, and also adds 1 to the demon's combat defense rolls [a little harder to hit and easier to defend]

Just some thoughts.

Also noticed some major typos in the Armored Demon entry and the Venom Queen entry.
Customer avatar
Vincent V May 31, 2021 4:01 am UTC
I appreciate all the feedback. The Screaming shield was meant as a weapon you want to take for Leaders with low combat scores (read: schemers) that could have use for passing to other demons in a campaign. It's still quite impactful. The goal was always to make small moves. Something that big would be quickly too defensive and go against the core principle where it would become nearly impossible to kill the demon when combined with other abilities.

As to those two errors, thank you, yes, we caught those and they will be fixed. :)

Format

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.
