About the adventure

This is a low-level 5th edition D&D campaign that is perfect for new and longtime players. The adventures take place along the sword coast of Faerun within the Forgotten realms. The general theme is fantasy heroes. The town of Phandallin is in grave peril as a dragon ravaging the countryside pushes the monstrous and murderous further from the wilds and closer towards the nervous mining town. But that just means there is work for sellswords and spelljammers. Where more noble towns would scoff at the idea of an adventurer being in their midst, Phandallin must acquiesce your presence to stave off far worse. Whether you are driven by a need for coin, a healthy appetite for violence, or a devotion to helping those in need, Townmaster Harbin Wester is willing to pay you to lend the townspeople a hand. Maybe you have an itch to slay a dragon along the way. Anything is possible in the story we weave together. In dark times lets answer the call to be better and grow closer doing so. Personally, I like to focus on roleplay, so there will be plenty of options to tell unique story and flesh out characters with journals and interaction.

Gameplay details

5th edition Dungeons and Dragons is a d20 system, meaning players will be making choices for the characters they play, rolling multi-sided dice and adding their skill to the dice roll to determine success. This adventure will be played as a campaign. meaning there will be several sessions in a continued narrative. At the start of this session, I will have players introduce their characters by giving a short description of pronouns, appearance, and goals. At this point in subsequent sessions we will spend time determining what our character has done with their downtime(the time they spend in between adventures). After some reason to adventure has come up, whether we look on the job board or there is some pressing danger, the rest of the session will be catered to exploring the world and fighting adversaries. At the end of each session the rewards of the adventure will be reaped. Planning- Interpersonal strategizing out of combat is an option, but to keep things interesting I will make you think on your feet when the situation demands it. Exploring- I populate the world with interesting characters and locations, and exploring is in no way limited other than speed of travel. Combat- I use a map program called roll20 to map out combat. I'm flexible with how you choose to proceed with combat.
