Lost Mine of Phandelver - Session 9

Leave a Comment
This session was supposed to be the final one in our Lost Mine of Phandelver campaign, but it turned into an attritional game with the party making hard work of the mine's tougher opponents and the sad loss of another player character...

You can find videos of the session below. Apologies for the terrible sound quality of these two videos, I've already addressed the issue for next time.

------------------------------

The next two days were hard work for the adventurers. They continued to explore the Lost Mine, clearing the way of the undead that seemed to be the only inhabitants left after the battle centuries ago.

The monotony of the dull grey, dusty tunnels was broken by two events. First, and most dispiritingly, they encountered a Flameskull in the old smelting chamber, a hideous floating skull wreathed in green flame. This long dead artefact inhabited by the centuries-old spirit of an evil wizard put up a difficult fight.

Zasheir and Joris fell to the flameskull's fireball spell, and whilst Joris managed to survive (now bearing the scars of the encounter on his flesh), the monk sadly perished.

There was a moment of argument, fed by the anger and loss of their comrade, when Joris and Udrath almost came to blows over the fate of Zasheir's corpse. They returned it to the barracks and laid it down for collection later.

After resting and recovering the adventurers contiued their search for the Forge of Spells. The second event that caused them concern was encountering Mormesk the Wraith. The group overcame this obstacle, but not before Udrath almost succumbed to the undead's life-draining powers.
With still no sign of either the Forge of Spells or the Black Spider, the cold and unforgiving mine was starting to take it's toll...

Lost Mine of Phandelver - Session 7

This was a really fun session that saw the party finally locate and enter the fables lost mine. Finding the lost Forge of Spells before the Black Spider would not prove easy however...

A full summary of events can be found in the Campaign Journal. The full session can be seen in the embedded videos below.

Lost Mine of Phandelver - Session 6

Leave a Comment
After the bitter defeat of the encounter with Lord Venomfang the dragon, hope was born anew as Udrath and Brumbar found new allies in their search for Gundren Rockseeker. Joris the rogue, Hurakhan the imposing dragonborn cleric, and Zasheir the monk joined their quest.

This session saw a much more successful outcome, despite the party managing to pull every creature in Cragmaw Castle all at the same time. You can check out the chaos in the videos below.

Lost Mine of Phandelver - Session 5

Leave a Comment
The last session of our Lost Mine of Phandelver game was certainly an interesting one, as it ended in disaster with most of the party slain, and the few survivors barely feeling with their lives!

The party began the day by continuing to explore the ruined town of Thundertree. After battling some ash zombies, blights and some particularly menacing giant spiders, the group came across a band of strange cultists hiding out in a barricaded building.

After a tense stand-off, Favric, the leader of the cultists suggested an alliance. He told the party that they were a band of dragon slayers who had been tracking a green dragon from the south. Together they may be strong enough to defeat it!

Despite concerns from Luthor and Brumbar, the group agreed, and after resting set off for the ruined tower at the top of the hill. There they were betrayed by Favric, who turned the party over to Lord Venomfang the dragon in return for some kind of favour.

A fierce battle ensued. Brumbar's magic put the cultists to sleep, but the party was helpless against the terrifying onslaught of Venomfang's attack. Only Udrath and Brumbar survived, fleeing the disaster as the dragon fed on the remains of their friends...

Lost Mine of Phandelver - Session 4

Leave a Comment
The adventure continues!

The latest session of our Dungeons & Dragons 5E game is now online, and the videos are linked below.

In this session the party emerged victorious from the dungeons below Tresendar Manor, and were hailed as heroes by many of the villagers in Phandalin for defeating the Redbrand menace.

After recovering from their travails the party decided to set out into the wilderness to continue their search for Gundren Rockseeker. Before they left Luthor was made an intriguing offer by Halia Thornton of the Miners' Exchange.

Over the next few days the adventurers explored the lands around the Stone Mountains and the Triboar Trail. They defeated a band of orcs that had made its lair on Wyvern's Tor, bartered with an ancient Banshee for information, and confronted one of the fabled Red Wizards of Thay who was conducting research near Old Owl Well. They were no closer to their quarry however.

A new hope arrived when they discovered the druid Reidoth in the ruined town of Thundertree. Reidoth offered to lead them to Cragmaw Castle where Gundren was reportedly held, on one condition - the party must drive off a green dragon that had taken up residence in the tower above the ruined town.
