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 final installment of this classic Planescape adventure, our characters face a series of terrifying challenges, each more horrific than the last… all in the desperate hope that they might finally escape from the plane of Baator and perhaps even one day to find a portal that will eventually lead them back to their home world. But, how many more of their dwindling numbers will the Nine Hells ultimately claim before they even have a prayer of safely setting foot upon the streets of Sigil: the City of Doors…?

Abandon all hope, ye who exit here.

But first, please enjoy Mattiaz’s dramatic reading of excerpts from his character background that was provided to each player prior to gameplay. And special thanks to Jenny Randle for voicing Shaaraxxis, called “Stormsong”! If you prefer to just jump forward to the actual-play action, please skip ahead to 18:30.
