Hedrack visits the RT
One of my players wants to cast Alter Self on himself to pose as Hedrack at the RT. What are the complications that can arise from this (for me and the players)?

(I haven't DMed this portion yet, so this response is based more on generalities than familiarity with the situation. :p )

I would think their success would depend to some degree on whether they have used this tactic before, and whether the temple forces know that they have done so.

I think the main danger for both you and the players is that they can get deep into the complex, potentially over their heads. So they could be overwhelmed in combat, and it could become quite complex for you as well adjudicating who is around, how long they take to arrive, etc.

I think the critical moment could be when the second moves forward to challege and ask what Hedrack is doing there. They probably won't be able to give a convincing reply, and unlike many of the inhabitants, the second knows Hedrack well enough to make a disguise check difficult.

But I wouldn't discourage it... It's a good idea and could make for a memorable session.

"They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers. They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came... They were scum who died violent deaths, hanging on to a certain cachet among the impressionable through their undeniable bravery and their occasionally impressive exploits" China Mieville, Perdido Street Station

Yes, memorable I'm sure! :)

If they do actually do this I'm thinking they would get past the mooks well enough, but once they reach the higher-ups (and especially the Doomdreamers), they will quickly get in over their heads. I'll have to sort something out of course in case they do this, but this will probably end up being the beginning of a big knock-down, drag-out fight, probably the biggest one of the module so far (and there have been some doozies!).
