Oh Hell Yeah! Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus.
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on D&D Beyond, Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
Go to Hell - every week. In the infamous city of Baldur's gate, a flood of refugees from the nearby holy city of Elturel has arrived with tales of a horrible fate that has befallen their homeland. Our 'lucky' group of adventurers will face fiendish perils - deadly traps, rivers of fire, devils on motorcycles and more, in hopes of restoring the great city, and maybe earning a nice profit in the meantime. This will be a weekly game. Skipped sessions will be rare, with as much notice as possible. There will be a mix of combat, roleplay, and exploration. This is not a soft game - character death is a very real risk, often happening in very over-the-top brutal ways. We will primarily be using the official module, but I will be making some adjustments and adding a little homebrew and 3rd party content. Not excessively, just enough to add some 'spice' to the game.

How to prepare
Your #1 priority is to have a working microphone, headset, and a stable internet connection. If you have those, I am always happy to help you through everything else. You will need access to Discord for voice chat. This can be on your computer or mobile device. Video chat is optional. You will need free accounts on dndbeyond.com and roll20.net. You can choose or build your character on DnD Beyond ahead of time if you like. If possible, you should also install the browser extension, "Beyond20" which will make your life much easier by letting you use DnD Beyond, Roll20, and Discord together. If you need help getting any of these set up, please contact me and I will be glad to help you out.
What I provide
I will be providing a private Discord server, virtual maps and tokens via Roll20, and all D&D sourcebooks, which I can share with you on dndbeyond.com.
Content for this game will range from PG-13 to Soft-R. There will not be much sexual content, but there will be violence and a lot of foul language. BIPOC, LGBTQ+, those with special needs, and anyone else who has ever felt bullied or excluded is welcome at my table.

How will character creation work
Characters will start at level two. Character Sheets will be hosted on DND Beyond. I will have pre-made characters available or you can make your own. You can build/choose ahead of time or wait until session 0. If you choose to build your own you may use any official, published D&D material, including optional features from Tasha's Cauldron. No Unearthed Arcana, homebrew, or 3rd party content without prior approval. Use either Point Buy or Standard Array for abilities. If more than one player want to play the same class, we'll discuss how to make it work in session Zero. Generally it's fine as long as you pick a few different options, like sub-class or spell choices.
