About the adventure

You have never played D&D or any TTRPG in that regards? The whole thing appears to be big and intimidating? WHERE TO EVEN START?! Fret not, young adventuress for I am here to guide you. I will lead you through the Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition starting adventure "Lost Mines of Phandelver" which ranges from level 1 to 5. You don't need to have any previous experience and we're doing everything digitally, so you don't even need to have dice (but please do, they're pretty and shiny!) We will take it slow and easy, I will explain how the game works and we are going to have fun, trust me! LMoP takes several sessions to complete. I offer the first one (3 to 4 hours) for free. If you choose to continue, you can book me!

How to prepare

You will need a Discord account, headset or microphone, and (optionally) a webcam. Create your character beforehand, the rest will be explained during the session!

What I provide

Foundry VTT, D&D Source Book access, music

Gameplay details

Fun, story, and roleplay will be the focus. Players have a non-linear, open world to explore and can follow the main plot at their own pace (or not at all!) There will be combat but non-violent solutions are almost always possible with me. Prior to the session, we will discuss any themes or topics that are uncomfortable for any player, so I know what to avoid. Additionally, we will use the X card method, which means anyone at the (virtual) table can write an X in chat to let me know that they want to skip the content e.g. because they are uncomfortable with it or because it may act as a trigger. We are using the Foundry VTT software and D&D Beyond. Both are free to use for you!
