About the adventure

Treasure & Riches! Promises of treasure and riches bring you to riding a wagon full of supplies on the high road south of Neverwinter. A dwarf named Gundren has offered to pay for you to escort a shipment to the town of Phandalin, and mentioned he'd have more work for you once you arrived in town. This adventure will take your characters from 1st to 5th level. Great for both new players and veterans, Lost MIne of Phandelver has epic combat, scenic exploration, and exciting roleplaying opportunities.

Additional Details

How to prepare

At session 0, we can decide if we want to use cameras or not, but it's not going to be a necessity. You will, however, need to have a microphone, since playing via text would slow the flow of the game to a crawl. All rules and mechanics can be explained as we go, and for those who have never used dndbeyond.com before, I'll walk you through signing up for an account, and creating your first character. All dice rolls will be made digitally from the dndbeyond interface (unless you have and prefer using physical dice).

What I provide

All maps will be provided via Owlbear Rodeo, and I can provide tokens for your characters if you don't wish to provide one yourself. Advanced options for character creation will be shared via my dndbeyond.com master tier subscription.

Gameplay details

For new players, session 0 will be the time to build your first D&D character and learn the basics to get started. For veteran players, this session can be used to flesh out a characters backstory more, or acquaint yourself with other characters to work on a collective narrative to start the adventure. Death and violence are inherent when there's combat involved, but we can discuss the level of description you would want in session 0. We would also utilize discord chat to display X, N, & O's for any players if they start to get uncomfortable with the content.

How will character creation work

Characters will advance from level 1 to level 5 throughout the adventure. At session 0 for new players (or veterans who have never used dndbeyond before), we'll cover signing up and using dndbeyond.com, as well as crafting your first character. For veteran players, we'll go through character creation, and talk about any non-core dnd content, optional class features, or origin customizations you'd like to try. We'll also cover how to use my VTT of choice, Owlbear Rodeo.
