The Lost Spell Forge - An Adventure to Find the Lost Mine of Phandelver (Beginner friendly!)
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Foundry VTT
About the adventure
SYNOPSIS ----------------------------------------- The campaign takes place on the Sword Coast of the Forgotten Realms. You and your party are members of an adventuring group who works in and around the great city of Neverwinter when your dwarf patron and friend, Gundren Rockseeker, hires your party to escort a wagon of supplies to a town called Phandalin and promises you even more gold if you help him and his brothers with a small mining project they are working on. Evidently he and his brothers have discovered "something BIG" in this town and they need your help uncovering whatever it is. You can expect: 🗺️ An engaging & immersive atmosphere! ⚔️ Combat sound effects & animations! ☠️ An exciting adventure filled with evil plots, monsters, & glory! 📝 Decisions that will affect the storyline! 🗡️ Awesome magical items! THE CAMPAIGN ----------------------------------------- The campaign will take roughly 6 sessions to complete, with sessions ranging from 2-4 hours long (depending on how long you want the sessions to be). Keep in mind that the estimated 6 sessions it will take to complete the campaign could change depending on how long our session are, and how many side quests that the player decide to do. We will have a "session 0" which you will not be charged for, and will be spent creating characters, going over some basic rules if need be, and answering any questions you may have regarding the game. WHAT I WILL DO ----------------------------------------- I will walk you through the character creation process, the basics of playing, and provide a fun and engaging environment to play D&D. I also provide access to almost all of the DnDBeyond compendiums for character creation. REQUIREMENTS ----------------------------------------- - D&D Beyond account (free version) - Discord account Besides that, you're set! The best part about FoundryVTT is that you do not need to buy or download anything! FoundryVTT runs through your browser, so it's super easy to connect and get playing.
How to prepare
Please bring / prepare the following: 📹 Webcam (optional) 🎙️ Microphone (please try to mitigate background noise.) 🎲 D&D Beyond account 👾 Discord account 📜 Since I run my sessions online, physical dice and character sheets are unnecessary, however if you would like to use your own dice or hold a physical character sheet, then you're more than welcome to. 📺 If you have never used Foundry VTT before and want to learn some basics before our session, I recommend watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja88yRVQmck
What I provide
I provide visual aids/art, sound effects, animations, and music that are used during our session to create ambience and immersion. My job is to create a fun and safe space that we all enter to become immersed in a world filled with dungeons and dragons.
🐲 In the world of Dungeons and Dragons, being an adventurer is very dangerous and can lead to situations that involve struggle, combat, and even death. The game is completely controlled by the Game Master, and it is my goal as the Game Master to make sure you are having fun. If I'm running a game for minors or a group that wants a family friendly game session, my content is going to be different than if I'm running a session for adults. 🚫 Before the campaign (preferably during session 0), we will discuss triggers, uncomfortable or distressing topics, go over Foundry VTT basics, and expectations for players and me as the GM. If at any time you begin to feel uncomfortable or are confused about something game related, please let me know immediately! ☠️ Combat and death can be described in two different ways depending on the groups decision: It can be described realistically (meaning blood and gore), or can be described simplistically and glossed over (ex. "The goblin falls after your powerful sword strike!"). Other potentially distressing or uncomfortable things like drug use, alcohol, romantic relationships, torture, etc. can be discussed if they have a place in our game sessions or not in "session 0" or at the beginning of session 1 if all players can't make it to session 0. My motto is: "Communication is key when playing D&D." If you have anything that is confusing or rules you're not sure about, please feel free to message me your question or speak up during the game session.
