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

To Baator and Back – Episode One:  Paradise Lost & Found

In this first installment of this classic Planescape adventure (first published in Well of Worlds 1994) the Red Moon guys first get to know Robert Randle and Aaron Campbell from the Adventure Hook podcast a little bit before diving headlong into the game. Starting our story in the world featured in Rob’s other actual-play podcast Blackspire, we are initially introduced to our four player characters and receive many hints concerning their storied (and in some cases adversarial) backgrounds with one another…

If you prefer to just jump forward to the actual-play action, please skip ahead to 19:30.
