About the adventure

There's a rumor spreading in the coast city of Baldur's Gate. Folks are saying the holy city of Elturel has vanished, leaving nothing but a crater where it used to be. You've heard rumors before though, and there's no way something that wild could happen, not while The Light of the Companion is protecting the holy city. At least, that's what you thought at first... Recently, refugees have been arriving at Baldur's Gate. They claim to be from the outskirts of the crater formerly known as Elturel. As the days pass by, more and more arrive. Eventually, with no more room to house the needy, the gates of the Baldur are closed. As a licensed adventurer you know it's only a matter of time before your services will be required to help the strained town guard. But helping guards isn't that bad. It's not like you're going to hell and back... right?

Additional Details

How to prepare

A discord account for communication A roll20 account for combat maps A D&D Beyond account for character creation Beyond 20 (a chrome extension that lets D&D Beyond and Roll20 collaborate) Google Chrome web browser A microphone for voice communication Highly recommend a computer or tablet. Roll20 works on phones, but screen size is a deterrent.

What I provide

Adventure and excitement; the most lovable NPC (Lulu the miniature elephant); voice acting; a bustling, living cityscape; a terrifying, thriving hellscape; interactive combat maps; and a story you can't miss out on.

Gameplay details

Free Session 0. Your safety and fun are my top concern. This will be two toned adventure starting in a very gritty cult-filled city before journeying to Avernus: The First Layer of the Nine Hells. This can be a terrifying tale, so we'll be using the Monte Cook RPG Consent Checklist to make sure everyone is comfortable with the terrors told. Combat will will be played via Roll20 on a gridded map, with some special combat played via Theatre of the Mind. Characters can be created in D&D Beyond where several sourcebooks will be made available to you via my D&D Beyond Pro account. To those new to the hobby, that means easy character creation with options to be whatever you want, and easy to use maps and tokens when it comes to those big boss fights! I have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying, sexual harassment, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and any other prejudicial behavior. Those who can't abide by these standards will be asked to leave with no refund.

How will character creation work

Characters will be built on D&D Beyond using Standard Array. Races from Players Handbook, Tashas, and Xanathars are allowed, races from other books allowed with DM approval. Access to the books needed to build your character will be granted once you are in the campaign. Links for Campaign and Character Creation will be in the group Discord. Optional pre-built characters are available.
