Descent Into Hell is a Fifth Edition adventure designed for three to five 4th- to 6th-level characters, and is optimized for four characters with an average party level (APL) of 5. This adventure takes place in the DMDave Worlds’ setting of Blutstrom, but can easily be placed in any campaign setting that has fiends and portals to other dimensions. The characters enter a portal to the very home of devils in order to put a permanent end to Orgorus, One Who Devours.
Fifty years ago, the devil Orgorus walked among the people of Blutstrom, leaving in his wake a river of blood, bone, and shattered lives. One such life belonged to a man called Sigeric; Orgorus possessed his body, took up a kitchen knife, and ripped into his wife and daughter. The devil made sure to keep Sigeric’s spirit conscious as his family cried for mercy; Sigeric’s mouth was filled with the devil’s laughter, even as his eyes wept. Finished with this small amusement, Orgorus left the man alone amongst the bloody ruin of his family.
Sigeric has spent his entire life searching for a way to avenge his family’s death. It would not be enough to slay Orgorus in the land of the living. For the devil to taste true defeat, he would have to be beaten in the very home of devils. Sigeric is no fool, however, his aging body and mind are no match for such power. Instead he seeks a champion—or champions—to dive into the depths of hell itself and bring him the head of Orgorus, so that he may look upon his foul face and know that the devil’s life has truly ended.
Sigeric has finally found a way to enter the plane of hell; a profane ritual that, when completed, will open an arcane portal straight to Orgorus’ lair. By possessing Sigeric, Orgorus inadvertently left an imprint of his spirit on the man’s soul. This imprint is a map—a beacon. It will allow Sigeric to narrow the location in the plane down to a sliver of probability.
Who will become Sigeric’s avatar of retribution? Who will dare to enter hell itself?
