    About the adventure

    Forge your fate in hellfire! Welcome to Baldur's Gate, a city of ambition, corruption, and murder. 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—the eternal battle between demons and devils! 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? An adventure for levels 1-13+, Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus takes the characters on a wild ride to hell and back, if they're lucky.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players will need a mic and Discord, and at least the Demo version of Fantasy Grounds Unity, which can be found at . GM can provide a tutorial on the use of Fantasy Grounds, if needed.

    What I provide

    The DM has the ultimate license of Fantasy Grounds, and thus you will only need the free demo version. The DM will also provide all of the necessary modules and plug-ins for Fantasy Grounds, including all the 3rd-party extensions used to create a more streamlined game with less downtime. All the source books for 5E D&D are made available through Fantasy Grounds at no extra expense for the players. Syrinscape audio and sound effects are used in every campaign in order to provide full immersion and a realistic play experience. The DM also has a Discord community with over 80 players and DMs from other campaigns, providing a forum for chats, memes, character builds, strategy, roleplaying and more!

    How will character creation work

    Players will create new characters in session 0. Characters will begin at 1st level, or at the current level of the party if joining an ongoing campaign. Characters can be created using point buy or standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8), and starting gear from the Player's handbook. Players can create a character using D&D Beyond, and import them into Fantasy grounds, or may simply create them prior to their first session using Fantasy grounds.

    Players can expect
