A Cold Day in Hell

A hellish holiday adventure for Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus

A powerful bearded devil is creating infernal snowtoys to trick children into signing away their immortal souls, when a group of brave adventurers wanders into the snowstorm surrounding his diabolical gift factory. Guided by a red-nosed imp who's escaped the evil devil's clutches, the adventurers must fight a frost worm, brave devious traps, defeat frosty devils, and go toe-to-toe with the powerful Nichozal, Zariel's Claws, to save the children's souls, the red-nosed imp, and – most importantly – themselves!

This adventure is designed for use with Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus and features many references to Christmas, but includes advice on how to adapt it to a generic campaign. It features challenges and encounters tailored to a party of four 8th-level adventurers, but with advice on how to increase or decrease challenges. Depending on your group's pace, the adventure should take between 3 to 6 hours to complete.

This download contains:

  • 3 chapters – 12 pages of exciting encounters, devious traps and infernal bargains.
  • 3 snowy encounter maps – 150 PPI maps in both DM's and player versions, tailored for use on virtual tabletops.
  • 3 magic items – armor of free movement, infernal snowtoy and the Heart of Agathys.
  • 5 unique monsters and monster variants – frost worm, frosty spined devil, frosty barbed devil, ice golem and Nichozal, Zariel's Claws.
  • DM's Cheatsheet – the entire adventure condensed into 1&frac;12; page of notes for you, the DM!

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.
