About the adventure

A longtime friend and your occasional employer, Gundren Rockseeker has found another job for your adventuring group! Gods willing, it's just a simple task too - escort a wagon just a couple days of travel for some solid gold. Guard duty on well-travelled roads is amazing - and your dwarf friend knows you need that experience, leaving early with a guard to "get things ready there". From what Gundren's hinting - he might have some more work when you reach the destination. And thus, your groups sets out from Neverwinter to a little mining village called Phandalin... "Lost Mines" are generally considered one of the most well-rounded starter adventures - and most 5e players have run it at least once. This game's going to be aimed at beginners to 5e or those who've missed this amazing adventure - we'll quickly be going over fifth edition's basic rules and doing a prep mini-session via discord with each player to generate your character.
