Dungeons & Dragons 5e



About the adventure

Will you save the doomed city? About Me My names is Euan and I am a Professional Dungeon Master, with 6 years of DMing experience. I have a Master of Arts Degree in Drama, as well as a backlog of theatrical experience. I run high Roleplay games using my training to bring to life fully-voiced NPCs in an immersive world that is driven by the actions of my players. I run several games a week and therefore I'm very experienced in running professional games. What to Expect In this game your choices will matter as each decision will define the world around you; whether it be for better, or worse. There's an exciting narrative and world to explore, but even more unique things to be created, inspired by your actions as you explore Avernus; the narrative will follow your actions. In addition, the characters you create are more than just stats on a page; they'll be fully integrated into the world. As a DM I believe in RAI (Rules as Intended) over RAW (Rules as Written). I much prefer to create a fun and experimental atmosphere, whilst keeping the game fair for everyone. You can also expect the game to be LGBTQ+ Friendly (both the group AND in-game world), with zero tolerance for bigotry, racism, homophobia, sexism, etc. The Story 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? - This heroic Dungeons & Dragons adventure book takes players from levels 1 to 13 as they journey through Baldur's Gate and into Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells. - Baldur's Gate is among the most iconic locations in fantasy culture. A mist-cloaked metropolis on the Sword Coast, it’s a place of history and a home to heroes. - Heroes may find themselves enticed with devils' deals, with the ultimate temptations of power and treasure.
