D&D 5E Advent's Amazing Advice: The Lost Mine of Phandelver, fully prepped and ready to go! Part 3a Reign of Iron

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!

This is the twist we've all been waiting for. The base version of the Lost Mine of Phandelver is fun, but it lacks in a few departments. One of which is The Big Bads; both Venomfang and The Black Spider.

Thanks to this amazing One-Shot, courtesy of Helianas Guide to Monster Hunting I've been able to seamlessly merge in a compelling narrative. No longer are The Black Spider and Venomfang two separate entities, but they're merged into one...Volrak from The Reign of Iron! The Lost Mine was in fact the lair of Volrak who stole it from the Dragon you'll meet in this Adventure (Only to have it lost once he became fat and lazy). What Dragon wouldn't want access to a forge to create magical items?

This session will culminate in a three-wave boss battle, with a possible non-combat solution. It will be the first truly epic battle your players will face in this campaign! Not only that, but they'll meet a new friend, one who may just be able to provide your players with their first truly powerful and unique magical item. This is only the beginning, however. In Sessions to come, you'll see how this One-Shot sends ripples throughout the campaign as a whole!
