    About the adventure

    You are stranded. Your home is gone. You are not alone. šŸ”„šŸ”„šŸ‘‡ YOU START HERE: DIRTY AND AFRAID šŸ‘‡šŸ”„šŸ”„ You are a refugee recovering from the wake of a disaster. Great plumes of smoke rise off in the horizon, where your home should be. You're a little over a week's travel away from the nearest city. There are others, bewildered, afraid and in need of your help! Ready yourselves and face the dangers of the wilderness. Protect your caravan and reach safety behind the city walls of Baldur's Gate! --- --- --- šŸ˜ˆ\\ HEREIN LIES //šŸ˜ˆ - This is a remix of the hellish adventure Descent into Avernus, going from levels 1 to 13. - Here you will start on the road toward the coastal city of Baldur's Gate, gathering other refugees and protecting them from dangers along the road. - Once at the city gates, you and your companions will be swept up in a murder mystery investigation, ultimately leading you down to hell itself! --- --- --- šŸ“œ PLAYER REVIEWS šŸ“œ "Introduced players to the story well. Great visual aids. Made for a comfortable and fun game. Looking forward to future sessions! " -Steven "The visuals were just absolutely stunning all throughout and really lent an immersive atmosphere to the game. Lou really has created a fun and unique experience! I would absolutely recommend him as a DM for anyone looking for an amazing game! I already can't wait for the next session!" -Aaron "I really enjoyed how the story felt like it immediately had stakes. Who and what we are in this world matters and that really felt like it was driven home by this opening. I'm really looking forward to see how the world continues to respond to the choices we make, and how it - in turn - molds us also. " -Kurt --- --- --- šŸŒŸ GM Reel šŸŒŸ
