About the adventure

The Swords of Phandalin, a group of adventurers hired by the town to protect it, chased after goblin raiders to confront the “New Boss” of the goblin clan. Baxx, former Goblin Boss of the clan, quickly consented to take the Swords to the new boss with the intent of disposing of him. What the Swords, and Baxx, found was a Goblin Warlock mad with power performing rituals to some unknown god on an insane set of alters suspended over a valcano. This Goblin had already transformed some Goblins and citizens of Phandalin into oozes; he intended to make more. Taking swift action, the Swords struck at Goblock thinking they would quickly defeat him. With every bloody strike against his small frame, the Goblin was thrilled and cackling cried out, “Yes! You are doing it!” As his body crumpled bleeding and fell into a portal, an unspeakable tentacled horror arose taking his place. Quickly resolving to defeat this new evil, the Swords of Phandalin ferociously sliced into the monstrosity. The thing from some other realm succumbed, but at its death the portal expanded, and took the Swords into it. The Swords awoke to a broken and unfamiliar landscape encircled by mists. Gloom and fear surrounded them as well as the dim twilight. In the distance, across the scarred and cracked land, they hear a familiar cackle. The Swords had saved Phandalin, but now they will need to fight to save themselves. You are a member of the Swords. You will need to fight this Eldritch Horror, uncover the secrets of this unfamiliar Realm, and defeat madness to find your way back home.

How will character creation work

Players may use the Player’s Handbook, Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything, Van Richten’s Guide to Raveloft, Volo’s Guide to Monsters, and the Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide for source material. You will need your own copies of the sourcebooks, but I am more than happy to guide you through character options. Also, please send an image or your character for me to make a token. I am open to other sources, but we should talk about it. We will roll for stats in Discord. If you choose, you can also use standard array or point buy. We will meet for a session 0 to discuss what you would like to have in this adventure and why you would like to play.
