Elturel Has Fallen – A Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus DM's Resource!

Chapter 2: Elturel Has Fallen cranks up the heat and kicks things into gear as the characters are sent straight to Hell! The heroes get their first taste of hell facing a steady stream of bloodthirsty devils, demons and undead while scrambling to make sense of what has befallen the holy city of Elturel – and how to undo it!

This document seeks to provide you, the Dungeon Master, with tools and thoughts that will help you make Chapter 2 of Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus an exciting experience for your players. This product contains:

  • Running Chapter 2. A thorough walkthrough of each section of Chapter 2, including advice on how to pace the action, handle encounters, adapt to possible issues, and change the story to make it fit the campaign you want to run.
  • New Magical Items. Spice up the action with two new, memorable magical items: Redemption, a greatsword worthy of a holy warrior, and Helm of Torm's Sight, an invaluable aid in a world inhabited by devious devils.
  • Monster Stat Blocks. Monster stat blocks covering every foe in the chapter, neatly arranged together on pages, so you don't have to flip through several books when running encounters.
  • 7 Encounter Maps. Seven full-scale digital battlemaps in both DM's and player versions primed for virtual tabletops showing every encounter location in the chapter: Elturel's streets, Torm's bridge, the High Hall and the Grand Cemetery.
  • DM's Cheatsheet. Condensed notes of everything in the chapter for easy use at the table.

Hey, I've a question about the battlemaps: I'm looking to run the final encounter in Avernus, with a big fight on the streets of Elturel, does this have a battlemap for the Elturel streets? If so, how big is it?

Hi Mati!

It does indeed! The map is 20x20, and you should be able to see a preview in the description above (unless images are being troublesome, they do that occasionally!) :)

Best regards,

I've expressed on other forums my discontent with this chapter in particular, but really frustrated with the size and scale of the maps as well and how they are over the size limit for VTTs like Roll20 even though they're advertised for virtual tabletop.

I'm really sorry to hear that you're dissatisfied. The maps are all under 10MB – how would you like them instead? Let me know how I can make sure you get good use out of the product, and I promise I'll do my best to make it happen!

Best regards,

Slightly disappointed with, "Beyond giving the party some magical items – which is always popular with players – this encounter offers little else." and some of the comments on the other encounters. I can see that they are uninspired and disappointing by reading what's in the hardcover. I was hoping this would include advice on how to handle encounters and make them a bit more dynamic and interesting.

Hi Jerry

The main purpose of the section is to offer evaluations and possible inspiration for enhancements (as is included for some of the encounters) – not all encounters seemed easily salvageable, which is why we offer only our comment. However, I can see your point and agree that we could do more – I'll see if we can make time to wrap around and update the product with some more encounter expansions as soon as possible :)

Sorry to disappoint, but I'm happy that you share your opinion, so we have a chance to improve. Thanks!

Hi again Jerry

Just wanted to let you know that we've just added an additional page to the Encounters in Elturel-section, elaborating a bit more on some of the encounters. Hope its more to your satisfaction! :)

What size are the maps usually printed at in order to be proper grid size for game play?
Customer avatar
Eventyr G November 21, 2019 9:23 am UTC
Sorry for the very late reply! The maps have a 150PPI resolution – what size to print at depends on the map's dimensions (which are noted in the title of each map) :)

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
