Lost Mine of Phandelver (2019)

This 5e adventure was my second jaunt into the premier module for the 5th edition D&D game. I still think it is one of the most exquisitely written and downright FUN adventures in any edition of D&D, and rightfully deservers its place as a classic among the others. It has all the pillars that D&D players love: exploration, combat and social interaction. Vivid NPCs, surprises and terrors galore fill the pages.

Unfortunately, this was an in-person game, and when Covid-19 hit in March 2020 we had to stop and the campaign was never finished. We were even quite near the end. Regardless, we had a blast up to that point and I hope readers will enjoy the story too.
