About the adventure

We welcome all players wanting to create a character in D&D Beyond to join us for a walkthrough and problem shooting Session 0 that will lead into an engrossing Session 1 of Mines of Phandelver. Bring your pre-made Level 1 Character or an idea of what you want to play. It helps to have read a little about the game, but we can walk you through it if you are completely new, also. You just need a Free D&D Beyond account to create your first character. They also offer a rules compendium on the site free-of-charge for an introduction into the process. If you enjoy the game, you're welcome to stick around for a full campaign with us, find another campaign or DM, or never talk to us again! No pressure!

Additional Details

How to prepare

You are welcome to use a webcam, but not required. Please have a way for Discord to record your voice. Your computer's mic will be fine, but a headset often helps. Please have a Discord account and play around inside it a bit to familiarize yourself. Also, please have a D&D Beyond account and be logged in. We will help you with everything else, but access to Discord & being able to communicate is a necessity. The more prepared you are, the more time will be allotted for venturing!

What I provide

We will provide you with access to our Private Discord server, an invitation to the campaign that will include the full gambit of D&D Beyond, a link to our Foundry Virtual Table Top full of creatures, monsters, tokens, maps and more!

Gameplay details

Welcoming, Inclusive, and Fun for everyone... If at anytime you feel uncomfortable with any theme, content or discourse, please inform one of the DMs immediately. Expect some character building and bring patience. You will also experience Role-Playing, terrible voices, lighthearted (unfunny) humor, and combat.

How will character creation work

You are welcomed and encouraged to flesh out your character details and background before the game in D&D Beyond, but it is not required. We can help with anything you're unsure of, but we are pretty lax to make the game run smoother.
