Default Does Asmodeus care how successful a ringer is?

it discusses "Ringer's" under Redemption in the infernal player's guide

where a prince arranges a incompetent servitor, who he could tell was allready was leaning towards redemption, to be set up with some angels as a redemption canidate, often times loaded up with phony information.

often hoping they'll do some damage upstairs with their incompetence.

it mentions one reason princes rarely do so, is because Asmoesdoes takes a very dim view of sending anyone to the other side for any reason.

Think he'd care how successful the ringer was?

or one that caused the collapse, of a divine tether through his incompetence, and the bad info he gave the angels, fell again and was debrief full of info prince would be treated as harshly as one where the r inger was truly redeemed, found themselves in heaven, is rehabilitated by the Faith their Archangel and fellow servitors show them, and heaven manages to laugh off all the garbage hell tried feeding them.

I suspect Asmodeus would be just as upset no matter how successful the ploy was. He's the Demon Prince of The Game, and that ploy requires the opposition to capture a playing piece. Even a pawn can be useful at the right time in the right place ... but only if you can still play it.

think he'd probaly be able to do more, to the prince if the attempt backfired?

Oh, definitely. The Game is canonically one of the most powerful Words in Hell - Asmodeus has agents everywhere, and he can activate them to damage other Princes's plans and organizations whenever he wants.

I meant would he be more capable of Attacking the prince if the attempt failed, then if it succeeded?

one possiblety is if it suceeded grandly enough, lucifer, might praise the prince, which he would NOT do if it failed...

Also if it suceeded grandly enough , one could argue that WAS playing the peice, been studying chess ernestly last 2 years, learned that sometimes you have to sacrafice one peice to take another from your opponent.
