About the adventure

The frontier town of Phandalin is built on the ruins of a much older settlement. Hundreds of years ago, the old Phandalin was a thriving human town whose people were firmly allied with neighboring dwarves and gnomes. Then an orc horde swept through the area and laid waste to the settlement, and Phandalin was abandoned for centuries. In the last three or four years, settlers from the cities of Neverwinter and Waterdeep have begun the hard work of reclaiming the ruins of Phandalin. The new settlement is home now to farmers, woodcutters, fur traders, and prospectors drawn by stories of gold and platinum in the foothills of the Sword Mountains. Now it's time for you and your adventuring party to make a name for yourselves in the rising town.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Have your Roll20 and Discord accounts setup. Finish your character before session zero. Please make sure to have at least some basic knowledge of the rules. Having read materials provided by the GM.

What I provide

Great fun, lots of prep, compendium sourcebooks, API scripts, custom-made maps, etc.

Gameplay details

You can expect a good mix of the game's three pillars - combat, exploration and social interaction. I run games mostly playing by the Rules as Written (RAW), with hints of the Rules as Intended (RAI). Unless discussed otherwise with the group, I enforce aspects of the game like encumbrance, travel pace, food and water, etc. For combat, we'll mostly use grid maps. But not all grid maps imply the presence of a combat encounter.
