New D&D Adventure Book Takes You To Baldur's Gate And Straight To Hell

Go to Hell! But get a long rest in first to get your spells back. This is D&D, after all.


The latest Dungeons and Dragons adventure book has arrived. Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus takes place in the world of Baldur's Gate. It's available in stores right now, and the book adds new magical items, monsters, and war vehicles to the world of D&D.

The new adventure book starts off characters at level one and takes them to level 13 as they traverse Baldur's Gate and set foot in Avernus, which is the first layer of the Nine Hells. And yes, this is the same Baldur's Gate from the video game series that takes place on the Sword Coast.
