Thread: [5e] Lost Mine of Phandelver

    Default [5e] Lost Mine of Phandelver


    I've been looking to get into DM'ing, and have decided to run a Lost Mine of Phandelver campaign!

    This will be a 5e, play by post campaign. I'm looking to run a party of 3-5, depending on interest. It will be casually paced, as I can only guarantee posts at a minimum of one day a week (Sundays). I will be using the Starter Set materials, as well as a PHB, so any material from that is game. I do not plan on using much homebrew, but I am considering some minor tweaks (source material I draw from won't be anything other than the MM or DMG).

    Now that the logistics are out of the way, here's the good part.

    Character creation will be from the PHB, any material in there is fair game. You will start at level 1, with either class/background equipment or the average gold for your character class.
    Stats will be determined by roll: 4d6 drop the lowest. Stats can be assigned any way you please, you don't need to roll in order. Please make the rolls in the thread!
    Multi-classing will be allowed, but I have very little experience with it, so please only go that route if you have before/am willing to put up with me trying to figure it out.

    And finally, backgrounds.

    Backgrounds do not need to be extensive, as you are all fairly new adventurers. However, you do need to come up with a reason you are in the city of Neverwinter. Ties to Gundren Rockseeker, a dwarf prospector who frequents Phandalin, are a plus but not required.

    I have not decided on an end date for recruitment as of yet, but would like to be starting by next sunday, at the very latest.

    Not sure how to end this, other than I'm really looking forward to it and I hope you guys give it a shot!

    Am I correct in reading that only PHB resources are allowed? No Volo's or Xanathar's or Sword Coast Guide?

    Yep! As cool as that content is, I’m just getting into DMing so I want to keep it simple, for everyone’s sake.

    That's fair, I just wanted to be clear. I have a basket of fine ideas from the PHB alone.

    Difficult... I don't suppose rerolling is an option?

    He said nothing about re-rolling 1s, which both you and arcanegeek did by using the 4d6rb3 code... It's obviously LilToasty's call since he is the DM, but I would argue that your first roll wasn't valid

    Hm, I'll say rollsets totaling less than 70 are rerollable- so go ahead and do it over.
