Initial Meeting - 07-11-2023

Please find below some of the details we will go over during our first session, which I expect to last about 2 hours. This list is not exhaustive, but it will give us a place to start as a group.

Playing the Game

If you are new to the world of D&D, here are few takeaways and readings to give you feel for how the game works and what to expect. Disclaimer for the content below and please note, you do not have to purchase any of items that follows, as long as you create a free account on dndbeyond.com! (see below). I have plenty of extra dice, character sheets, and everything else you might need to play. Just show up and get ready to have fun! With that being said, these are the things that every player needs each game.

Lost Mine of Phandelver - An Overview...

Our adventure is true to the heart of what makes D&D great and beloved by those who choose to answer the call! The collections of adventures that make up the Lost Mine of Phandelver campaign, written by Wizards of the Coast, the official content creator, and publishers of D&D content. Lost Mine of Phandelver is an adventure for four to five characters of first level. During the course of the adventure, you can expect your characters to advance to at least fifth level. The adventure is set a short distance from the city of Neverwinter in the Sword Coast region of the Forgotten Realms setting. The Sword Coast is part of the North — a vast realm of free settlements surrounded by wilderness and adventure.

Pre-created Characters

The source adventure comes with several premade characters. If you have never played, choosing from one of them might be the best option to get you playing the game. Note that you do not have to use one of these and we can roll you the character you genuinely want to play. With that said, the game flow and rules lend to a similar set of character classes as each can take on a different role within the group. For example, it is common to have characters who are extraordinarily strong and deal a lot of damage (fighter, ranger), ones that provide aid and healing to other characters (cleric), some that focus heavily on magic and spells (wizards, sorcerers) and many others as described in the players handbook. At the end of the day, having a group of five players who are all human fighters may not provide for the best gaming experience. We will discuss classes and other details when we get together.

And finally, key take aways and steps before our first session

Congrats if you made it all the way to the end of the page! This is just a simple website, which serves as a catch all for communications in our gaming. There is a high chance of broken links, spelling/logic/grammatical errors and lots of long, wordy text that is hard to follow and does not flow well. Finally, the content will not render in an enjoyable way on whatever device you are using to view it with. If I end up with extra time, I will actually improve the layout and other problems, but it will work for now.
