As you will read in our review, Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus is well worth picking up. In fact, it might be "the strongest fifth edition campaign yet". The official description reads:
"Welcome to Baldur's Gate, a city of ambition and corruption situated at the crossroads of the Sword Coast. You've just started your adventuring career, but already find yourself embroiled in a plot that sprawls from the shadows of Baldur's Gate to the front lines of the planes-spanning Blood War! Do you have what it takes to turn infernal war machines and nefarious contracts against the archdevil Zariel and her diabolical hordes? And can you ever hope to find your way home safely when pitted against the infinite evils of the Nine Hells?"

On a related note, Wizards of the Coast and Adult Swim recently released their highly anticipated Rick and Morty Dungeons & Dragons crossover adventure starter set, which was created by the same minds that brought us the Rick and Morty vs Dungeons & Dragons comics - Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles), Jim Zub (The Avengers, Wayward), and artist Troy Little (Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas). The set includes a 64-page rulebook annotated by Rick, a 32-page original adventure for levels 1–3, a 4-panel folding Dungeon Master screen featuring new art, 5 ready-to-play character sheets, and 11 dice.
Pre-orders for the Rick and Morty D&D set are live on Amazon now for $23.30 (22% off) with shipping slated for November 19th. Note that you won't be charged until the set ships and you'll automatically get any additional discounts that occur during the pre-order period (if you've already pre-ordered, you're covered).
