    About the adventure

    No prior experience necessary! Our adventure begins with a job--help escort some mining supplies to Phandalin, a small town south of Neverwinter. Seems easy enough, and better yet, there's a bit of gold on the table. Your contact, Gundren Rockseeker, confides that he and his brothers may have found the Lost Mine of Phandelver, which has been hidden from the world for over 500 years. It's a dangerous secret to keep, but one that will certainly be profitable if his hunch is right. "Lost Mine Of Phandelver" is a fantastic BEGINNER ADVENTURE which takes characters from Level 1 to Level 5. It's a perfect introductory story to get players hooked on the world’s greatest roleplaying game. Katie (your game master) will introduce you to Dungeons & Dragons via, a free virtual tabletop which will allow us to see our maps, character sheets (how to control your character), and handouts. We will begin with character creation and backstory establishment (a "session zero" before the game /really/ begins) and then we will plug them into an exciting campaign that is filled with lore, role playing, and combat encounters. Katie will help you learn the rules and how to use Roll20 as she guides you through your adventure! Additionally, players who are no longer beginners will enjoy this one as well, and Katie can easily adjust the level of difficulty to fit the needs of your party.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players will need to have/create a free Roll20 account and join the game (a direct link inviting you to the game will be provided) AS WELL AS a free account on Discord so we can easily communicate via text, voice, and/or video. Roll20 has audio and video capability but it is oftentimes glitchy and I do not want to risk interruptions to your game. Customization/creation of characters can be done once the invitation is accepted, preferably prior to your scheduled session and with DM approval/assistance.

    What I provide

    Katie will provide the adventure (including the story, maps, voice acting and role play), an in-game tutorial of Roll20 (if needed), and will help players navigate the rules of D&D 5th Edition featuring content from "Lost Mine Of Phandelver."

    Gameplay details

    Inexperienced players need not be afraid--Katie will help you learn the ropes as we play! Although the history of Faerun is expansive, you will receive appropriate details at the right moments so you're not overwhelmed diving into a foreign world. A typical session will include history/backstory, role playing, and combat encounters to keep you involved and engaged with your story.

    How will character creation work

    You will receive an invitation to your private game, and will have access to various resources within my compendium upon booking your session(s). Pre-generated characters with prescribed back-stories are included with this adventure, however, you can make your own character using the 5th Edition Player's Handbook (sorry, no Minotaurs and Hobgoblins in this one). If you wish to create your own, we should get them established before the first session (unless you would like a "session zero" to learn how to build characters), and Katie is happy to assist if necessary. We will start at level 1, so it's recommend to use the charactermancer in Roll20 to build your character. The charactermancer will also make sure that you stay within the rules of character building, so it's a great tool for new players to explore.
