Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 03 Side B

Hello listeners! We are back from our holiday break and we want to welcome you to Episode 6, Session 03, Side B of the Lost Mines of Phandelver series! It’s the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

In this series you’ll hear Alex play a character named Hal, who is a level 1 Bard when we meet him. Kaetlyn plays Uitzash, a mysterious level 1 Warlock with a rather dark patron. Kolton decided to play Olo, a level 1 Tortle Barbarian. While Matt plays a level 1 Grung Wizard. Colin was DM’ing this game. We are using the Milestone leveling variant in this adventure, so the players are completely free to find paths to victory and resolution options outside of combat and murder to solve their problems.

In today’s episode, the characters finish up their first adventure by figuring out how to carry all these Lion Shield branded boxes and then make their way into Phandalin! It’s a cozy little village built on the ruins of an older, and larger, mining operation. The mining still continues, but the prior denizens disappeared for some reason or other. Their first stop is to get paid and to upgrade some equipment, but not before getting into some inter-party intrigue and re-outfitting their new goblin companion Gebin!

Some decent food and cooking related puns, but not the best ones we’ll get to.

Please, enjoy the show!

Happy New Year!

The cast consists of our normal crew. Alex plays a character named Hal, who is a level 1 Bard when we meet him. Kaetlyn is playing Uitzash, a mysterious level 1 Warlock with a rather dark patron. Kolton decided to play Olo, a level 1 Tortle Barbarian. While Matt was intrigued by the idea of playing a level 1 Grung Wizard.

We’ll see how well the system supports them in that endeavor!

In today’s episode we see what lies beyond this mortal coil… and then the players decided to talk to their new Goblin friend a little bit! They get some very useful information out of him before they make a full member of their group and decide where they’re going after they’re done in this cave.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear a psychologically harrowing fight for the players and the GM as we attempt to get our dice to cooperate with our narrative. Being only level 1, running low on class resources is kindof the name of the game, and it comes into play here in a big way. You’ll see what I mean when you’re listening to the encounter.

Basically no puns in this episode. Plenty of good jokes though.
