Red Moon Roleplaying in association with the Adventure Hook podcast proudly present a Blackspire Studios rendition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition classic Planescape adventure “To Baator & Back”… which we’ve humbly subtitled: “Hell is Other People”.

This episode contains themes and situations that may be offensive to some audiences. Listener discretion is advised

In the fifth installment of this classic Planescape adventure, our characters must traverse the hellish plane of Baator to find (and then barter for) the keys to their escape from the fabled Pillar of Skulls… though how could they ever hope to trust something actually comprised of the souls of dead sages who in life had lied for a living?

But first, please enjoy Hjalmar and Aaron’s dramatic reading of excerpts from their character backgrounds given to each of them prior to gameplay. And special thanks to Jenny Randle for voicing Lady Maje Harkadies, Shaaraxxis (called “Stormsong”), and Vanel Harper!

If you prefer to just jump forward to the actual-play action, please skip ahead to 31:00.
