About the adventure

This is a starter campaign for learning how to play D&D 5th Edition, building characters, and enjoying the experience of exploring a whole new world. This will be set in an ancient world. This part of the world is called the "Sword Coast", and it is full of amazing cities, powerful magic, and vast terrain between settlements -- not to mention the nearby ocean. So much to explore! No experience, books or resources required. Just jump on in, and we'll learn together.
