or as they say in the Nine Hells: “May the flesh burn from your flayed skin and your soul suffer endless torture” (literal translation).
As I recently brought up the topic here, I am planning to DM the major hardcover adventure for season 9 of the Adventurers League: Descent Into Avernus.
I waited quite a while for Wizards of the Coast to come up with actual campaign content like this, as I fancy (diabolical) horror as a genre in general. After I acquired the hardcover this week I am even more hyped due to the huge amount of supporting material just in the book itself (loads of background information, artwork, maps, …)!
But enough with the advertisement: Let’s do this!
This thread is created to organize a group of 4-6 players (excluding me, as the DM) who want to play this campaign during the 9th season of the Adventurers League.
Though it is possible in this format for characters to participate in other adventures and/or join in at higher levels than the current sessions suggested party level (drop-in/drop-out), I highly recommend that you play it with a character in suggested level or at least the corresponding tier, as it gives you the best experience by far regarding story- and character progression.
The adventure starts at level 1, so it’s a perfect start for a new season
Apart from your own ideas for you character, Descent Into Avernus also offers specific character backgrounds, or rather modifications to existing ones, which can be picked at character creation.
Also, and this is even more cool, the party will have a shared secret that affects them. I will talk about that before the game starts. Maybe we can also discuss it in this thread.
For the time and place, I want to DM this mainly at the regular AL meetup in the Cafe 1070 on Friday, 19:30, but am also open for additional sessions at other locations an times if the group wants that.
There is no final time for the first session yet, but I want to start the adventure in the next few weeks.
Although of course all players are welcome, I would be particularly happy about people who are into the setting and appreciate its special atmosphere and plan on sticking with the campaign.
Additionally, I noticed that Rayce_Kaiser and PatrickD already announced that they wanted to join, that’s why I’d give you two a fixed seat at the table if you are still interested.
So, who’s in?
