Out Of The Abyss - An Underdark Adventure

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

As the book explains: "The Underdark is a subterranean wonderland, a vast and twisted labyrinth where fear reigns. It is the home of horrific monsters that have never seen the light of day. It is here that the dark elf Gromph Baenre, Archmage of Menzoberranzan, casts a foul spell meant to ignite a magical energy that suffuses the Underdark and tears open portals to the demonic Abyss. What steps through surprises even him, and from that moment on, the insanity that pervades the Underdark escalates and threatens to shake the Forgotten Realms to its foundations. Stop the madness before it consumes you!" We will be playing through the whole adventure, starting at level one and working our way forward from there. As a warning, this is far more survival horror than your traditional DnD game. I am excited to run it but it deserves a warning as it is more difficult (especially at the start) than your average game.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need some kind of mic as we will be playing over Discord. I would recommend a minor familiarity with DnD going in. I would also recommend you do a quick google into the Underdark to make sure you have a basic understanding of the location, since the game will almost entirely take place there.

What I provide

I can provide illustrations as we play as well as maps as needed.

Gameplay details

Your typical session will focus on survival in the Underdark. It is a dangerous, almost-alien land deep under the ground in Faerun. We will be go over any lines as a part of session zero. You will always be able to direct message me while we play if anything becomes too much. I will be using an open door policy so if things get too intense players are free to step away as needed. Finally we will be taking at least one break a session to decompress as things get tense.
