About the adventure

ARE YOU READY TO RIDE? CAN YOU STAND STRONG AGAINST THE CORRUPTION OF HELL ITSELF? WILL GOOD TRIUMPH OVER EVIL? Time to begin an epic crusade across the hellscape of Avernus! You and your crew have decided to take on the most dangerous of holy quests- to save as many lost souls as you can, and to slay the archdevils before they pull more innocent cities into hell! Start with Zariel, end with Asmodeus himself! This game will be using piety rules from Theros, as well as stronghold rules from Stronghold and Followers. Your god will reward you for demons slayed and souls saved, and you will begin to build a powerful fortress to protect the innocents stuck there with you as you fight off demon hordes!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players need a working mic and access to a computer. The game will be held over discord and roll20, so you will need an account on both. Players will need to make their character sheet ahead of time in roll20 or dndbeyond. If dndbeyond, they will need to have the chrome extension beyond20.

What I provide

I will be providing a discord server, a roll20 room that we will be playing in, soundscapes, and a fun experience for all!

Gameplay details

This game uses safety tools. I will be going over possible triggers before each session. Content warning: hell, religious themes, demons/devils, trapped souls, evil acts, slavery. There will be no sexual assault, homophobia or transphobia in my games
