About the adventure

In Lost Mines of Phandelver: Learn to Play, I will walk you and the party through all of the aspects of D&D 5e. We will start with a robust session 0 that will include character creation, gameplay mechanics discussions, and safety tools. You'll be provided with a cheat sheet to outline what you can do on your turn, out of combat skills and abilities, and how to interact with the world around you. We will play through "The Lost Mines of Phandelver," the classic starter adventure taking a group of 4-6 adventurers through caves, castles, and mines as they attempt to secure an ancestral magic item forge for your employer. The adventure will end with your characters being level 6 and ready for grander adventures in the Forgotten Realms. In addition to our normal scheduled sessions, I’ll use discord to facilitate offline roleplay, where during your character’s downtime between adventures, they’ll be able to gather reagents and craft items like healing potions or new armor, investigate new leads that may lead to side treks, or even explore their own backstory.
