Intro to D&D 5e

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Discord, Theater of the Mind

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


Theater of the Mind

About the adventure

This game is ideal for anyone new to the game, or people coming back to the game after some time off. We'll be playing the Starter Set adventure, Lost Mines of Phandelver, which serves as a great introduction to the game. Included with the price per player of session 1 is a free session 0 where we will all get on Discord and discuss what characters people will be playing and how basic mechanics work, as well as answering any basic questions you might have about the games. To keep things super simple, I will be providing pre generated characters that are pre designed to work together very well. This game is intended for new or returning players to learn/re enter the game in a fun and inclusive environment.

Additional Details

How to prepare

A microphone and a Discord account are required. I recommend physical dice, because it's a lot of fun to roll dice, but there are plenty of free dice rolling programs and apps available if you'd prefer a digital option. Character sheets will be provided for you in a PDF format, so it's advised to have a program to read them.

What I provide

I provide the characters, adventure, experience and story telling! I'll also be providing access to my personal discord server for this game, with voice channels enabled

Gameplay details

Lines and Veils are a tool that will be discussed during session 0 and actively used during the campaign. The module we will be using features a pretty good mix of game mechanics and experiences. I highly recommend using this module to discover the style of play you like most so you can tailor your later experiences more to that style
