About the adventure

Start your own Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Adventure Path! Individual players welcome. No experience necessary. Folks are acting strangely in the town of Phandalin. A malevolent cult threatens to overtake the region. Create a hero to start the adventure: an Elf Ranger, a Tiefling Rogue, a Dwarf Cleric, a Human Wizard or maybe a Dragonborn Paladin. Arm yourself and join the fight! Join the other heroes to follow the clues into the Lost Mines, and then into the Underdark. The adventure will take a party of heroes to 13th level (at least).

How to prepare

You will need profiles for Discord and Fantasy Grounds (basic access for both is free). No experience with D&D, Fantasy Grounds, or Discord required. Reach out if you're not sure how to get started!

What I provide

By joining the campaign in Fantasy Grounds, you will get access to the *Player's Handbook*, *Xanathar's Guide*, *Tasha's Cauldron*, and races from *Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse*.

Gameplay details

Most sessions will involve at least one tactical combat, but don't be surprised if there's more--or if the story dictates that there's none that night!
