    About the adventure

    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?

    How to prepare

    You'll need a desktop or laptop computer with a microphone for communicating through Discord voice chat. You'll need an account with Discord and an account with Roll20 (both are free). Roll20 works best on a computer, rather than a phone or tablet. New players are welcome, I just ask you do your best to understand the features of your class and race, and don't hesitate to message me before the game so we can both understand these things better.

    What I provide

    Access to any published character content on Roll20, advanced use of API scripts and macros to expedite combat and provide other quality of life or immersion building benefits, DMsguild material and homebrew ideas to flesh out the campaign.

    Gameplay details

    Classic DnD Virtual Table Top experience. I have progression and down time houserules that allows players to collect extra feats, ASIs, and Skills, making for complete builds that are impossible in most games. However this will be met with the use of certain stress and fear rules, and some other situations that may feel particularly gritty. Of course, you should expect a fair amount of violence, as with any DnD adventure. For this and other reasons, games can tend to be a bit gory in description. There may also be times when a survival/horror element will be evoked. As for any other type of mature themes, everything should be relatively PG. I am happy to implement any sort of toolset for players who feel they may have certain anxieties. I want my games to be as inclusive as possible and the only thing that matters is that everyone feels like a part of a team and is given the opportunity to have fun and shine in their own character/role.
