The Dragonslayers vs. The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, Part 2

I have been re-reading the original S4, the original tournament module it was based on and the update Iggwilv's Legacy and something occurred to me.  For a module centered around Iggwilv and her interest in demons, there are surprisingly few demons in this adventure.

Since I need to up the ante anyway I am thinking that I am going to replace some of the monsters with demons.  It will be one of the last times I'll use demons in a 3.x adventure and I have tons of books on them.  So stirges for example would be replaced by chasme (fly demons), the dao in the greater caverns (the "ante-chamber of the garden of 1001 delights") will be replaced by incubi and succubi.

I won't go overboard, but I think I have a few good places where I can do this and it will work out well.

I'll keep you posted.

+1. There should be a much more demonic presence overall.

I love S4, but this makes me sad... some of the worst 'company canon' ever written. The character of Iggwilv should be so much more...

Eh. I don't mind that at all really.

I have not decided what Iggwilv is yet or if she is even someone that needs to be dealt with.

She works best as rumor and ancient legend.

How much more she should be of course depends on the game. The Iggwilv they have listed is preety impressive to most normal people and most character under 10th level.
