    About the adventure

    FORGE YOUR FATE IN HELLFIRE! Welcome to Baldur's Gate, a city of ambition and corruption. You’ve just started your adventuring career, but already find yourself embroiled in a plot that sprawls from the shadows of Baldur's Gate to the front lines of the planes-spanning Blood War! Do you have what it takes to turn infernal war machines and nefarious contracts against the archdevil Zariel and her diabolical hordes? And can you ever hope to find your way home safely when pitted against the infinite evils of the Nine Hells?

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Mic is required. Webcam for video is encouraged, but not required. We will use Session 0 to go over any required tools and troubleshoot player access. Players should be prepared to use - Discord - D&D Beyond - Foundry VTT (through Google Chrome with game link - no download required) - Beyond 20 (Google Chrome extension)

    What I provide

    All VTT and online resources needed to run the campaign

    Gameplay details

    A link to join the discord will be given once a player joins the campaign, which is where further links to D&D Beyond and Foundry VTT can be found, along with instructions for character creation. We will do a short Session 0 to introduce ourselves, go over Player and DM expectations, start character creation, and answer any questions people may have about the campaign and/or gameplay. We will take a short 5-10 minute break in the middle of each session to stretch, use the restroom, and/or grab a snack.

    How will character creation work

    Characters will start at Level 1 We will have a Session 0 to talk about the campaign background, answer questions, and get character creation started. Character creation won't fully be completed during Session 0, and player will have the opportunity to think more carefully and customize their characters on their own before Session 1 starts. I will encourage players to come up with a backstory for their characters, that I will try my best to incorporate into the campaign. We will use discord as our primary source of communication between sessions if anyone has further questions / feedback.
