Descent into Avernus is a new adventure from Wizards of the Coast launching on September 17 but I Speak Giant has been playing the adventure since early July. Their time in Baldur’s Gate is nearly at an end, however, there are still a few weeks before the end of the campaign.

The final livestream will take place on October 4 with weekly audio podcasts until then.

Wizards synopsis of the new adventure is;

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?

Designed for players from level 1 through 13, Descent into Avernus introduces infernal war machines to fifth edition as well as DMs having the ability to tempt players with devils’ deals.

If you’re a fan of D&D check out the podcast and livestreams and get a taste for what’s to come in Descent into Avernus. I Speak Giant will also be giving away prizes from Audio Technica and Elderwood Academy.
