    About the adventure

    First part: Hired by Gundren Rockseeker to deliver mining equipment to the frontier town of Phandalin, trouble finds you! Will you save the hostages or let them die? Will you defeat the bandits threatening the local businesses? Will you find the location of the Forge of Spells? Second part: after locating the Lost Mine of Phandelver, defeating those who wish to use its magic for ill will, and returning to Phandalin, the new content begins. This time goblins wielding unknown powers are ransacking Phandalin for shards of an Obelisk. The adventure continues to focus on Phandalin and its surrounding areas, but as new dungeons are explored and leads are followed up on, the adventure shifts into creepier territory. As the players learn more about the mysterious source of power that's seeking the shards of the Obelisk, that same power begins to take effect on the land and its residents. Mechanics are introduced that will dictate the state of Phandalin as it becomes more corrupt with otherworldly powers.

    How to prepare

    You need: 1. Discord account 2. Roll20 account 3. A character concept in mind. (Starting level 5) You don't need anything else.

    What I provide

    I bring: 1. The module 2. Extra maps 3. Extra tokens (for spells, area effects, torches, campfire) on Roll20 4. Many years of experience 5. My love for the game 6. My unique style - Action+Story based RP, where what your character does actually matters. 7. Homebrew rules which make it more up to the player, and a bit less random.

    How will character creation work

    I own all the official Wotc + all Kobold Press on Roll20 and share the books with the players. You will have access to more than 100 races to choose from! So you don't have to stick to the characters you loved playing (can though), you can create a totally new character concept to try out. You roll for stats twice then you choose better array or point buy. You also start with a level 1 feat from your backround.

    Players can expect

    • Combat/Tactics: Medium
    • Roleplay: High
    • Puzzles: Medium
    • Experience Level: Open to all
