    About the adventure

    Located in the southern part of the Neverwinter region along the Sword Mountains lies the small town of Phandalin. Once a thriving mining community that was lost during the cataclysm decades prior, the town has now been relocated and seeks to rebuild towards its former glory. Those seeking a fresh start, an opportunity to expand their business, or simply trying to get away from their past have slowly started migrating to the steadily growing town. However, there are those who seek to control the town for their own personal gain. Some are common criminals and petty thieves, while others look to rediscover the lost mines and whatever riches that may still dwell within. In addition, the local area is fraught with monsters, goblins, and many other unforeseen dangers. For this reason, The Lords Alliance now seeks to bring order back to the town under the direct jurisdiction of the Lord Protector of Neverwinter; Degult Neverember. Taking place in the magical world of the Forgotten Realms, Lost Mines of Pandelver serves as the perfect introduction to both the game and its lore. Players will build personalized characters that possess their own agency, style of gameplay, and purpose in the world. The game will be adapted from the player character choices and personal preferences. In other words, this game will be customized for the group and specified to fit their narrative contributions. The game will follow a traditional style of gameplay where the players take on the role of heroes. There will be a balance of roleplaying elements, riddles and puzzles, and challenging yet fair combat encounters. The game will focus heavily on narrative to create a personalized story with player characters driving the action forward. Although the module only takes place from level 1 to 5, there will be opportunity to continue if the groups so chooses.

    Safety tools used
      How will character creation work

      Characters will begin at level 1 and will use the Players Handbook. The first session will be set up for building characters and having a session zero. This allows the players to ease into their characters and learn more about them before beginning the actual adventure. It also allows for me as the DM to better understand who you are as a player and who your character is in the world. This in turn allows me to better adapt the story to fit the collective needs of the group. Writing a short background is helpful too. Even if you don't know what class, race, or background you want to play, it is good to have a general idea of the kind of character you'd like to take on. Players can either roll for the ability scores or use standard array. If the group prefers to play pre-generated characters that can also be arranged.
