Baldur’s Gate: The Fall of Elturel is an introductory two-hour adventure for Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus or Tyranny of Dragons for 1st-level characters.


What appears as a normal mission to stop the Cult of the Dragon in the Elturgard Woods reveals a more sinister plot undertaken by the Cult of the Dead Three. This adventure seeks to invest the characters in the fall of Elturel by making its descent more personal.


Also included in this product are three new character backgrounds: the Hellriders, the Order of the Gauntlet, and the Flaming Fist. These backgrounds include detailed information on each faction and ranks that allow characters to advance within each organization by earning renown. Additionally, this adventure includes two new magic items; a bone of animation (from M.T. Black’s Mordenkainen’s Tome of Marvelous Magic) and a rose of Bhaal


Whether you're running Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus or Tyranny of Dragons, we hope you enjoy this adventure and that it motivates your players and their characters to save Elturel from utter destruction.

Quick thought on the reveal of the fate of the city being so clear in the book, saying it is pulled down into Avernus, this to me seems a bit too early to reveal exactly what the fate is, rather than seeing it happen but not understanding and having to spend the time in Baldur's Gate to find the answer. Thoughts on that from anyone else?

Something that made me wonder is why Hellriders do not get Vehicle Proficiency (Land)? I feel that would be neat, given the vehicle section in descent into avernus, and that their feature relates to horses.

Thanks. Purchased after watching Sly Flourish's video. The first thing that struck me with Avernus is how hamfisted the setup is. This seems much better.

What is the scale of the Ritual Site map (which looks fantastic) supposed to be? 1 sq = 5' or 1 sq = 10'?

I ran this as the intro to the main game as suggested and the player feedback was amazing, a great read and fun to plan - They LOVED it!
Plus we also filmed the session too, which you can find here: https://youtu.be/_HUUFmEobxA
If you have any feedback on how the session was run I'd love to hear it.

Used this as the lead-in for DiA and my group really enjoyed it and I think it gave them some connection to Elturel and extra reason for the things to come. A little tweaking for the size of my group (6 pcs) and to tie in some backstory stuff, but really pretty much ready as-is.

Used this last night to start Avernus...players will go straight into DDAL09-01 Escape From Elturgard and I have decided that Grace goes into Elterel due to the vast amount of coin given to her by the party. Going to use the random encounter in Elterel where an imp is bargaining with a gnome...but it will be Grace instead.

Also, when I spoke as Grace it came out like Meredith from Brave...so now she is Scottish.

But I love this introductory adventure!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I love your interpretation of Grace!

My current players all chipped in and basically gave her almost 100gp and told her to remember them when she becomes the next Blackstaff of Waterdeep...
I had planned that encounter for weeks and never had a voice for Grace...it kinda just came out Scottish.

Thanks for the great introductory adventure!

I grew up playing Baldur's Gate on PC and having the ability to let a PC be a Bhaalspawn was awesome! For the abilities, I looked up what cultists get in Tome of Foes...they are fairly balanced and interesting...

I've already started The Hoard of the Dragon Queen. My players are still dealing with Greenest and the raiders camp. Since they will have to go to Elturel anyway I'm thinking of modifying this for 3rd level and running it when they arrive. Just wish it was set up for Fantasy Grounds.

What a great idea! Tweak a few of the creatures in the Elturgard Woods and you’re good to go!

Its going to feel like emotional blackmail but i love the rainbow scarf floating in the wind. i also like how this also almost perfectly fits with the DDAL09-01 Escape From Elturgard moddule haven't decided if grace survives yet

Obviously Grace survives... but she makes a Deal in order to become the great Sage she always strove to be.

Can anyone tell me what the name in the last paragraph on the Appendix B letter from Rezmir is?

"Bring the treasure to me then or ____ will come for you." It looks like ULTISS but i cant make it out.

Yes, it is Ultiss, the name of the Cultist from the Cult of the Dragon that confronts the PCs as they leave the Dungeon of the Dead Three in DiA.

Just bought the adventure and I can't wait to run it with my party (once we finish Saltmarsh!). It's a very nice work, with an incredibly professional look and incredible art.
That being said, are you considering adding a printable version? And maybe separating the backgrounds from the main adventure so we can give them to our players?

At this time we do not plan on making a printer friendly version due to the costs associated with that. However, we just added a pdf with only the character backgrounds. You should be able to download the character backgrounds and share with players. Enjoy!

Format

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.
