Ok, so I’m back in my old hometown, playing D&D with yet another new group of old friends. This time Ola, from our Hoard of the Dragon Queen campaign way back in 2015, returns as we try out the introductory campaign “Lost Mines of Phandelver”. I’ve always heard good things about it, some people claiming that it is the best published adventure for 5th edition, so this was a welcome opportunity. Ola will be playing a barbarian. Playing alongside Ola is Erik, a Thunder Cleric and Caroline, a halfling rogue.

For our first outing, we wanted to get as much game time as possible, so all players chose a premade character from D&D:s website. They’re pretty good, you should check them out if you haven’t got the time to create characters. Each character gets pre-filled sheets with simplified rules for up to 10th level. If the players want to change characters later on it shouldn’t be too much of a problem, I’ll just insert them at the appropriate level.
