About the adventure

Centuries ago, a rich mine full of magic and wonder was mostly destroyed due to an epic battle of dwarves, gnomes and human spellcasters vs orcs and evil wizards. Rumors of its buried riches have persisted ever since, but no one has succeeded in locating the lost mine until now. Fast forward to today. You and your party have been hired by Gundren Rockseeker, a dwarven miner, to deliver supplies to the human frontier town of Phandalin. Your adventure begins as you travel along the Triboar Trail, where bandits and outlaws have been known to lurk. Beginner-friendly πŸ”° LGBTQ+ friendly 🌈 Emphasis on roleplay, even in combat and exploration 🎭 Investigate the mysterious disappearance of a dwarven miner ⛏️ Save a frontier town from bandits 🏚 Clear a treasure-filled magical cavern of monsters ⛰️ Stop an enigmatic archvillain from claiming untold power πŸ”₯ Images by Artie_Navarre from Pixabay and sceylar from artbreeder
