About the adventure

A Dwarf named Gundren Rockseeker is looking for a caravan guard to transport his supplies from Neverwinter down the High Road to the rock and tumble town of Phandalin. Journeying through these roads is known to be a dangerous task, one that very few undertake on their own; frequented by bandits and with monster sightings being more common the farther you go, it’s best to always be prepared and be able to defend oneself. A non-negotiable payment of 10 gold pieces is offered to each adventurer in the group! The Campaign Set in the Forgotten Realms, the campaign will start at level 1 and will probably run somewhere between 6-12 sessions, so commitment is key. The Lost Mine of Phandelver is a great introduction to the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons and to explore the Forgotten Realms. About the Game We’ll have a relaxed environment and game, at a pace that suits the party best. It’ll include exciting combat, interesting roleplay encounters and adventuring and exploration. The rules for our game will be discussed in session zero, but, simply, enjoy the game and let others do so, too. Consistency. Upon agreeing on a day and time, you can expect our games to run consistently on the agreed schedule. Any changes will be discussed among the group and decided upon convenience for all members. Customization. The campaign will be tailored to fit your characters and the party, as well as the group’s playstyle and interests. Even when I mostly play by the book, I’ll work the background and timing behind encounters to involve you further. Easy-going learning atmosphere. I really enjoy introducing people to the hobby and explaining the game as clearly as I possibly can. We’ll make sure everyone learns the ropes of the game and has fun. Going beyond the Hardcover. I offer my players the possibility to go beyond the adventure as published, adding and exploring side quests, other adventure modules or using supplements to augment the experience provided. Sandboxy feeling. I’m not big on “railroading” adventures and since, I enjoy the possibility of players defining their approach to the adventure and life after it. Time and dedication. I’m invested in the game. I constantly find myself, if not doing prep-work for game sessions, looking up new ways to make the game better and other contents to bring into my games. What I expect * Dedicated and open-minded players who are willing to commit. * Invested in learning the game, mechanics and rules -especially those related to your characters . * We’ll base our game in trust and an honor system, I expect everyone to be true to this. * Most of the time we’ll play using the Rules as Written (RAW) and, eventually, Rules as Intended (RAI). * There will be NO PvP in our games, at least not without consent due to prior discussion. * Being murder hobos, excessive metagaming and lack of seriousness are all best left out of the table.

How will character creation work

We will be using the adventure's pregenerated characters to take time off of character creation and put it into learning the ropes of the game and easily creating an immersive story that really involves each character personally. We can take some time during session zero to make small changes to these characters if you so desire.
