About the adventure

Damnation! The Companion that once stood as a beacon of hope and goodness above the city of Elturel has been extinguished and the entire city—along with its denizens—have been drawn into Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells! While those fortunate enough to have been outside of the city’s walls during its departure have been spared that fate, but they’re not yet out of danger! The refugees formed a caravan bound for the nearby city of Baldur’s Gate. Can you keep them safe from devils, bandits, and one another until they reach safety? Note: this is not the campaign Descent into Avernus, but the season 9 Avernus campaign arc for adventure's league. Play through different missions in Baldur's Gate and Avernus separate from the official storyline but no less important! This game is asynchronous Play by Post where you can respond whenever you want and only get charged once a week! The game is entirely on discord and we use the bot Avrae to roll from our dndbeyond sheets. I will teach you how to use Avrae if you don’t know how to!
