D&D 5E Advent's Amazing Advice: The Lost Mine of Phandelver Fully Prepped and Ready to Go! Part 2a Phandalin

Advent's Amazing Advice

Welcome back to Advent's Amazing Advice! The series where I take popular One-Shots, Adventures, Campaigns, etc. and fully prep them for both New and Busy DMs. This prep includes music, ambiance, encounter sheets, handouts, battle maps, tweaks, and more so you can run the best sessions possible with the least stress possible!

Last we left off, our group of adventurers had begun their journey and found themselves in Cragmaw Cave. After the successful defeat of Klarg, we begin Part 2, where the party will finally arrive in the town of Phandalin. If you've been using my notes for this, along with previous adventures, you'll notice that this is a slight change of pace. Since your players will be going to the town itself, it's far less linear, which means the notes must reflect that. I highly recommend either printing the town map for your players, sending it to them online, or even getting the map that comes with the essentials kit. (You can have one of the shopkeepers give the players the map)

Each location has a description along with what's happening when the players arrive. They'll be able to gather clues for what they should do next. The options currently available would be:
  • Taking out the Redbrand hideout (Best option)
  • Helping someone with a small side quest(Short Sidequest)
  • Heading to Thundertree to find Reidoth (could lead to a TPK)
I removed a couple of options because they had nothing to do with the story and were drawn-out side quests. Instead, in future sessions, I'll be including a full adventure that will integrate with the story at large and give proper motivations for Venomfang and The Black Spider! I've tested it myself, and my players loved it!

Without further ado:
Included in The Complete Collection are:
  • A Word document with all my notes, including a link to music tracks for ambiance and fights
  • Unique PDF for the Redbrand encounter. This includes the enemies stat block organized neatly, an initiative tracker, and a spot to mark HP.
  • A map of Phandalin. If you purchase the Essentials Kit, you can get a nice map to hand out to your players too!
