About the adventure

Devils 👿 Deals 📜 Wheels 🚗 Avernus is one of the newest and most buck-wild adventures! An action-packed thrill-ride from start to finish, you’ll be thrown into the Nine Hells to undo an infernal contract, save your city, and perhaps, redeem the fallen! One of my favorite adventures just to read through, and set on an absolutely cosmic scale, this is just good, DOOM-style fun. Also, you get to drive enormous, weaponized cars in hell! This campaign by its nature has a fair amount of combat, but opportunities for roleplay and exploration abound! A great adventure for new groups or more experienced players, this is a fantastic option if you're looking for something that has familiar fantasy elements mixed with new and exciting stories and scenarios.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You'll need a microphone, a webcam, Zoom, and free accounts with DnDBeyond, Syrinscape, and Roll20. You don't need to have a mastery of the rules ahead of time, but this adventure will benefit from some basic understanding of D&D Fifth Edition.

What I provide

I will be bringing the characters, funny voices, maps, tokens, and a rip-roaring good time.

Gameplay details

This game is designed to be action-packed and high-stakes. We'll be using lines and veils to ensure everyone's comfort at the table. You can expect a fast-paced experience with a moderate focus on the rules!
