Lost Mines of Phandelver
This game will be played online, and is geared towards an absolute beginner! The 5th Edition ruleset is brand new, so don’t worry about needing to have a lot of background with tabletop games.
The only requirement is to get an account at Roll20.net so we can all play together on a virtual tabletop.
We will have a practice session where we get used to the interface, and learn some basic rules for the game. If you want a more in depth understanding of how to play, you have some options available to you!
The basic rules are free and can be downloaded here:
Don’t worry too much about all the details – I would recommend reading the following sections in some moderate detail just to get a feel for the game:
- Introduction (Most important!)
- Chapter 7 (Using Ability Scores)
- Chapter 8 (Adventuring)
Other things that wouldn’t hurt to browse
- Chapter 5 (Equipment)
- Chapter 9 (Combat)
And if you want to play the Cleric or Wizard
- Chapter 10 (Magic)
- Chapter 11 (Spell Lists)
For this game, don’t worry about character creation rules, or any of the ‘options’.
