About the adventure

Hello friends. I'm hosting a Lost Mine for a new group so everyone can get to know each other on the first simpler adventure. Then we can dive into another campaign, my own published campaign, or a brand new homebrew based on the party's interests. Lost Mine runs from levels 1-5. It takes place in the town of Phandelver (shocker, I know.) You will start with a simple quest that snowballs into a far greater adventure of finding a mine that was lost. After that the party can decide what campaign, or type of campaign they wish to do next.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a mic with either a quiet place or push to talk through Discord. The player sheets will be stored on Roll20. Rolls will take place through Roll20's dice rolling on chat. (Beyond20 is also acceptable.)

What I provide

Access to all WoTC content (that's been published on Roll20) through the compendium. As well as numerous side quests, story arcs, and I'll admit, some wit, that has come from my many years of DMing. (Don't worry, you won't get anything from the early years... Or as I call them... The dark times.)

Gameplay details

There will be roleplaying in every session. There is a lot of talking to NPCs, finding out what exactly is going on in the campaign. Combat will be fairly common but parts are certainly dependent on the party. There are, of course, unavoidable fights, but many are also avoidable by the party's actions. And while the combat will be challenging, I will adjust it to the party so you don't need to min-max everything to stand a chance. (But a warrior with 10 str and 10 dex would be ill-advised.) Outright puzzles will be uncommon. However there will be riddles at times, and quite a bit of piecing together information to get the full picture of what's going on in the campaign. There will be normal fantasy violence, taverns, and other things you'll find in your average adventure-filled fantasy world. You might find bodies, trapped people, and poor innocents in poor situations. You won't be finding anything beyond a PG-13 movie though. The game is open to even the most inexperienced of players. I can help you with making your character or you can do it on your own. As well as I'll clarify any rules and such for you all.

How will character creation work

Characters will have point buy and start at level 1. You should have your character made before the game begins. If you desire to work with the other players on your backstory that can be discussed with them on the discord server. (I'll be there as well, of course.) Your character being in the Sword Coast at the campaign's start will be required, as that's where Phandelver is.
