The Lost Mine Of Phandelver
Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Roll20
About the adventure
In the city of Neverwinter, a dwarf named Gundren Rockseeker asked you to bring a wagonload of provisions to the rough-and-tumble settlement of Phandalin, a couple of days' travel southeast of the city. Gundren was clearly excited and more than a little secretive about his reasons for the trip, saying only that he and his brothers had found "something big" and that he'd pay you ten gold pieces each for escorting his supplies safely to Barthen's Provisions, a trading post in Phandalin. He then set out ahead of you on horse, along with a warrior escort named Sildar Hallwinter, claiming he needed to arrive early to "take care of business." You've spent the last few days following the High Road south from Neverwinter, and you've just recently veered east along the Triboar Trail. You've encountered no trouble so far, but this territory can be dangerous. Bandits and outlaws have been known to lurk along the trail.
How to prepare
In terms of preparing for the game, I would encourage the following:- - I use an application called "Discord" for voice communication. I would recommend installing it on the device you wish to play on! (There is no requirement for using a webcam in my games, only voice is necessary!). - The game will be hosted on the website: www.Roll20.net - This is where the graphics, music, character sheets and entire game itself will be run! - Owning a copy of the Player's Handbook is advisable but not necessary - I am more than happy to run you through the necessary steps in order to create your character or provide information from the book for you!
What I provide
I will host the game on Roll20 which the players will be able to access at any point outside of game time. This will enable players to edit their character sheets, level up or review game information for the next session!
My games are catered to all ages. I like to run a Session 0 where I will encourage the players to discuss relevant themes that may be deemed unsuitable for the group's needs e.g. Harsh language, violence and gore, body horror, phobias etc. If these subjects were preferred to be discussed privately, I would instead provide a consent form that would let the player privately submit their preferences on content they would rather not see featured in the game. If that player would rather talk to me directly in private, that would be perfectly fine too. I handle triggers and inappropriate content with confidentiality and respect towards the player's views and beliefs. If, during the game, a player is uncomfortable with the content they are participating in, I encourage that player to let me know in private so that we can stop the session, take a break and discuss the issue privately. How my players feel during my games is my top priority and if one person is not having fun, I will take the steps necessary to ensure they are heard and ensure the subjects they deemed inappropriate are kept strictly off the table. I take a no-tolerance approach to inter-player conflict. Should one or more players become uncomfortable with each other, I would do my best to resolve the conflict privately and in a healthy manner. Communication is vital during times of player conflict and I do my best to promote this in the game and outside too.

How will character creation work
This adventure begins at level 1 and finishes at level 5. It is designed to be an introductory adventure to 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons and contains a lot of D&D classics - A dragon, a beholder, a big dungeon, a big castle and more! In terms of character creation, I will be available to privately message during the week and will often run a Session 0 where character creation can be done. I am also not opposed to setting aside an hour during the week to discuss character creation in some depth should a player need. I will only charge for the sessions themselves and any extracurricular time spent on the game will be through my own doing.
