More than five hundred years ago, clans of dwarves and gnomes made an agreement known as the Phandelver's Pact, by which they would share a rich mine in a wondrous cavern known as Wave Echo Cave. In addition to its mineral wealth, the mine contained great magical power. Human spellcasters allied themselves with the dwarves and gnomes to channel and bind that energy into a great forge, where magic items could be crafted.

Times were good, and the nearby human town of Phandalin prospered as well. But then disaster struck when orcs swept through the North and laid waste to all in their path. A powerful force of orcs reinforced by evil mercenary wizards attacked Wave Echo Cave to seize its riches and magic treasures. Human wizards fought alongside their dwarf and gnome allies, and the ensuing spell battle destroyed much of the cavern. Few survived the cave-ins and tremors, and the location of Wave Echo Cave was lost, or so the story goes.

For centuries, rumors of buried riches have attracted treasure seekers and opportunists to the area around Phandalin, but no one has ever succeeded in locating the lost mine. In recent years, people have resettled the area. Phandalin is now a rough-and-tumble frontier town, but more importantly, the Rockseeker brothers - a trio of dwarves - have discovered the entrance to an ancient mine, one which they intend to reopen...

Hi everyone ^_^
I'm running a relaxed, text-only Lost Mine of Phandelver with the intention of getting comfortable with 5E rules and GMing in it. That doesn't mean it's going to be a walk in the park! I have some experience with other versions of D&D and Pathfinder, but I'm still new to this one.

If you are interested in joining, please have a look at the character creation template and make an application!

Invites will go out on Saturday the 16th of March! Until then, applications will remain open.
Please post applications in the Applications thread!

EDIT
Applications now closed!

EDIT
As of Sunday the 24th of March, thanks to scheduling issues, we're once again one short in our party of five. Third wave invites will now be sent, but no new applications will be accepted at this time.
