About the adventure

Baldur's Gate. Arguably the greatest city on the Sword Coast, known for it's cosmopolitan and inclusive nature, and crowded with commerce and opportunity. But now the gates of Baldur's Gate have been sealed against a horde of refugees from the neighboring holy nation of Elturgard. The capital city of Elturel has fallen, and Grand Duke Ulder Ravengard of Baldur's Gate, sent on a diplomatic mission to Elturel, is missing. Without the guidance of Duke Ravengard, the storied Flaming Fist is descending into chaos and anarchy, and with them, the Gate itself. Your ragtag group of adventurers has been all but conscripted by the Fist to help maintain order and peace by rooting out and destroying followers of Bane, Bhaal, and Myrkul, the evil triumvirate of gods known as the Dead Three. Their priests, assassins, and necromancers have been capitalizing on the distraction of the disorganized Flaming Fist to murder city folk, seemingly at random. Can you and your companions stop these depredations and restore peace to the beleaguered Gate?

Additional Details

How to prepare

Each player will need to have Discord with working audio input and output. A webcam is nice too, but not required. DroidCam is a great app that turns your phone into a webcam. Each player will also need to download install Fantasy Grounds Unity, which you can obtain at The Demo (free) version is fine, as I have an Ultimate license.

What I provide

All of the core rulebooks and many optional ones will be available through D&D Beyond and Fantasy Grounds. I will provide an immersive experience utilizing everything a powerful VTT has to offer.

Gameplay details

Lots of role-playing and social interaction. Learn how to use Fantasy Grounds, play D&D, and pick up techniques to fully immerse yourself in an amazing story. Combat is tactical and fast paced. The heroes are heroes!

How will character creation work

Characters are first level, and stats use the Standard Array +4. Pre-generated characters are also available. We will be using a mix of methods to flesh out your character., including the Sword Coast Heroic Chronicle as well as techniques learned and adapted from my years of performing at Renaissance festivals.
