About the adventure

We will experience the thrills of the epic story “Descent into Avernus” using the Beadles & Grimms platinum set. This set features neat extras, including: bonus missions, custom art, props (shared via cam), and AL certs if players decide to use it. We will also enjoy sound effects and props designed for the story. These are provided via Syrinscape, experts in ambient effects for tabletop RPGs. Finally, if Adventurers League play is chosen, I will mail AL game certs you may earn. You can learn more about and find current campaign documentation at dndadventurersleague.org Descent is best for adults who don’t mind darker themes presented by villains (not heroes) in fantasy RPGs. The theme of the tale is tenacity in the face of utter evil. The heroes must struggle with horrors while maintaining some small sense of nobility - or Hell will claim their souls for eternity. Metaphysical themes are central, as story elements refer back to Mad Max films as well as horror from John Carpenter and other terror masters.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players should download all applicable software and have accounts for Roll20 and Zoom, While players don’t need to have extensive knowledge of the game, it helps to be somewhat familiar with Roll20 and Zoom, as well as with safety tools.

What I provide

I will provide the materials for the game online. I can mail post-game certifications to players (particularly for future AL games).

Gameplay details

Gameplay is largely dictated by players. Aspects such as social and exploration play cab be expanded or contracted as players desire. Combat is ran in a deadly style with opponents that care to survive. Cunning and negotiation, when utilized, will be helpful. The total number of sessions are set by the pacing the group decides and feel comfortable with. I will not rush players through any content they wish to deeply explore. I can run this game in a standard or AL-legal style, as players desire.
