    Default [IC] D&D 5e : Lost Mine of Phandelver - BH

    Welcome to The Lost Mine of Phandelver Adventure
    A D&D 5e Adventure DMed by Bounty Hunter



    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, the Forge of Spells, where magic items could be crafted. Times were good, and the nearby town of Phandalin prospered as well. But then disaster struck when the 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 magical treasures. Human wizards fought alongside their dwarf and gnome allies to defend the Forge of Spells, and the ensuing battle destroyed much of the cavern. Few survived the cave-ins and tremors, and the location of Wave Echo Cave. was lost.

    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.

    Neverwinter : The Driftwood Tavern - Day 0

    Each of you have received a letter from your friend and patron Gundren Rockseeker, scrawled quickly in his own hand on a mostly-clean bit of parchment and bearing the family crest:

    Friend,

    The gods have seen fit that my brothers and I should happen across quite the opporunity. In support of this endevor I shall be needing armed escort to see that a wagonload of neccessary supplies makes the journey to Phandalin safely. Meet me tonight, an hour after sundown, at the Driftwood Tavern and make ready to set out at dawn.

    ~Gundren

    Roughly an hour after sundown you make your way through the winding city streets to a courtyard near the Coriol Street Gate. Squatting squarely on the corner of Coriol Street is a two story stone building that bears a swinging wooden sign in the shape of a three-masted galleon riding atop a banner emblazoned with the taverns name. Large barrels as tall as an adult human are stacked on either side of the main entry's stone stairs.

    Once inside, you find
    Gundren at a long wooden table near the back. The dwarf is joined by his warrior companion who he introduces as Sildar Hallwinter, and soon you find that five others received letters identical to yours. He explains the task before you: He and his escort need leave immediately and make preparations in Phandalin. The six of you, he excitedly explains, will pick up a wagon full of supplies in the morning and escort it safely to Brarthen's Provisions for which you will be rewarded with ten gold pieces each.

    "Now!" he chuckles and pats his companion on the back as he stands. "Enjoy your night and your meal. Get to know each other, you leave at first light. An associate will meet you outside this same in with the wagon tommorow and the pair of us shall meet you in Phandalin in three daysí time. If all goes according to plan there shall be more drinks to be had and more coin to be made. Ha!" Then the pair head outside and begin to saddle up into their ponies with haste, visible through the front windows of the tavern. Quickly, the pair heads out the city gate, leaving the six adventurers to wonder what the big opportunity might be and more importantly who each of their new companions was.

    Torrin Yarjerit

    The black-scaled dragonborn leans back comfortably in his chair. His greataxe and a set of javelins are leaning against the wall near him, and he has a pair of handaxes on his belt. He takes a gulp from his tankard of ale and looks around at his companions, sizing them up. As he scans across the table, his eyes linger for a moment on the tiefling, a small amount of acid flowing into his mouth in a tiny trickle, before he reminds himself that one's ancestry doesn't dictate their personality, with himself being a fair example.
    "Name's Torinn. Live a fair bit away from here." Torinn shrugs after this. "Not much else to say about me."

    Liuailo Galanodel

    While Gundren was going over the details of the job, Liuailo nodded his head but did not speak. Every once in a while he was distracted by a glimpse of his newly acquired rapier. He'd purchased the fine blade from the coin he'd swindled off a dapper gentleman, now he'd just hoped to get out of town before the gullible noble came to his senses.

    When Gundren left Liuailo sunk in his chair a little more and kept an eye on the door. When his meal was finally served, he tried to relax a little, but not too much. It was hard not to enjoy a hot meal and warm bed, especially when someone else's coin was paying for it, but he knew he couldn't afford to be to careless.

    Well Torrin, a pleasure to be makin' yer acquantance." Liuailo thought about extending a hand towards the dragonborn, but something about him made Liualo stop. "If there ain't too much to say, then I'll not pry. I know there can be times when even giving a name is saying too much. How about the rest of you? Any good stories to share with a warm meal and good drink?"

    Neverwinter : The Driftwood Tavern - Day 0

    As the group begins to introduce themselves to each other a pair of waiters begin to set several plates of food along the center of the rectangular wooden table. Roasted mutton that has been carved into thick slices is piled high on two main platters and several smaller plates and bowels are laden with various vegtables. Boiled potatoes, steamed carrots, and beans waft small trails of steam into the air above them as the last platter, stacked with several small loaves of bread and ringed in small cubes of cheese, is placed in the center. Before each of you is placed a wooden tankard which is then filled with Dwarven Rockaxe Ale.

    Aeron

    "Aeron" the ranger says, taking small sips of his beer while his eyes scan the room, fixing on the door and windows. A moment or so passes in silence before he adds, "I like your necklace," raising his mug to Torinn, and gesturing to the necklace of humanoid ears around his own neck. "Seems we have similar taste, as it were."

    Aeron sips some more of the beer, and it becomes apparent that he is not used to imbibing. Through his stubble, his cheeks turn a light shade of pink. He puts the mug down and reaches for a cube of cheese. After sampling it, he reaches for another cube and a roll, sliding the latter into his shirt. "For later, just in case." With that, he goes silent again, resuming his watch.

    Sergor Bersk

    He listened closely while Gundren talked - his father gave him enough raps on the head to make it a habit - but as the dwarves depart, Sergor resumes his slacked-jaw staring. Dumbfounded, his wide-eyed face turns back and forth between the dragon-born and the tiefling adventurers.

    It is only when Torrin and the elf speak that Sergor remembers to mind his manners. Mumbling something to himself, he addresses the group:

    "Well met! I am Sergor Bersk, and - ah, look at what Gundren has prepared for us!"

    As the food and drink is being placed, he clasps his hands and silently mouths a prayer. Then he piles his plate high from as many dishes as he can reach, and sets to feasting.

    Torinn

    Noticing the one human seeming to gape openly at both himself and the tiefling, Torinn grimaces into his drink, as he downs the rest. Hopefully its just the fact that dragonborn are rare around here, and not that his ancestors were black dragons.
    The large dragonborn sets down his empty tankard, and then eagerly drops several slices of mutton onto his plate, with only a small selection of vegetables to accompany them. Torinn takes a large bite out of one slice of mutton, when Aeron comments on his bear-tooth necklace.
    Understanding well the desire to keep a trophy of one's accomplishments, Torinn nods and speaks around the mutton in his mouth, "In'eed, i' sheems we migh'."
    He then grabs the full tankard of Rockaxe, and takes a drink to help wash down the meat, and makes a pleased noise. Its not often that Torinn gets to drink ale, or any alcohol for that matter, living as far away from others as he does.

    Aeron

    Chuckling as the fighter and barbarian devour their food, Aeron says, "Nothing like living for today, hmm?" and sips some more beer. It's obvious that the alcohol has the effect of loosening his tongue.

    "Stories . . . I don't have many." Aeron takes a gulp. "Would you like to hear of the volcano that destroyed my village and my family or the undead horrors that have overrun its remains?" Pausing for a moment, Aeron sets his drink down again, frowning at the cup. He reaches over for another roll, breaking some off to eat. "Hmm, sorry. Maybe the story of how Gundren hired me?"

    No larger than a child, a green-eyed, dark-haired gnome pokes his head over the table. His tunic is bright green with silver buttons; although he has taken it off now that the group is indoors, anyone who saw the gnome outdoors would have seen his magnificent, enormous, wide-brimmed hat. A rat dozes on the gnome's shoulder.

    His large, sparkling eyes look to everyone in turn as they speak. He stands on the bench, bringing himself slightly closer to eye-level.
    "Aeron, was it? A pleasure! Torinn, well met! Sergor, welcome! It's a delight to meet you all! I am Kayjat Rosendoofe Cobswobble Two-Sheds Exsprat Sproutfidget, but most people call me Keys."
    He reaches for a few potatoes, and pops one whole in his mouth.
    "*Gulp!* As you can see, I am a gnome! Some people think gnomes are related to potatoes, and that isn't far from the truth! I've always loved spuds, so that makes me something of a cannibal, in a sense. I pride myself on being a repository of pointless knowledge, so if you need any questions of little importance answered, I hope you will seek my counsel! I must say, I'm quite excited to get underway. Adventure! Excitement! Romance! Oh, what a story we shall spin together! Ha ha!"

    The tiefling's smile grew wide at the mere mention of storytelling. "Oh, is it my turn? Can it be my turn? Great!

    "I've got this one about six adventurers who all embarked on a doomed errand together. They were hired for what seemed at first like a simple escort, you know, just to make some quick coin. But they all turned up dead, drained of all their blood and viscera! See, they thought they were being hired by a completely legit employer, but he turned out to be a master vampire all along! Haha!"

    She rolled back into her chair, giggling madly. Her dark eyes sparkled. "Just kidding," she crooned. "It's us!"

    Despite her manner, there was something infectious in the little tiefling's voice. Maybe it was her lilting, singsong quality, or the odd innocence of her demeanor. Either way, she seemed to lack anything that could be called genuine malice, so at least there was that. "Call me Kit," she stammered, breathless, once she'd finally calmed down. "Everyone who's anyone calls me that."

    Torinn

    The dragonborn glances at the gnome over a particularly large piece of mutton as he rattles off his name, surprised that the small man is able to say the whole thing without needing to take a breath somewhere. "Keys it is then."

    After the tiefling has finished laughing at her own strange, grim story, Torinn squints at her a little. "Seems you found that thought a little bit funny. Not sure I would in the same situation." He then shrugs a bit and goes back to eating, finally eating one of the potatoes he had grabbed earlier.

    Keys stares wide-eyed as Kit finishes her story. After a beat of silence, he bursts out laughing.
    "HA! Ha ha ha! Ah, I believe you and I shall get along famously, Kit! A pleasure to meet you! Let's hope the fates see fit to re-write your story's ending!"

    Kit tilted her head oddly, pale hair spilling over one shoulder. It gave the distinct impression she was rolling her eyes at Torinn, and that would take some getting used to.

    "Of course I found it funny. Because it is."

    And then she was smiling again.

    "Well met, Keys." She leaned in conspiratorially, but cast a furtive glance in Torinn's direction. "Try not to talk about vampires. Our dragonborn appears to be afraid of them."

    Sergor Bersk

    Sergor continues to eat and drink in silence, smiling for Keys's introduction. It is only when the tiefling regales the table with her story that he pauses. As pale as day, he sets aside his platter and makes a sign across his chest.

    "Aeron, you were going to tell us how you were hired? Or maybe you could tell us about your trophies", nodding towards his necklace. "I'm all ears for how you got that", he says with a warming grin.

    Draining the rest of his tankard, he attempts to wave down one of the waiters.

    Neverwinter : The Driftwood Tavern - Day 0

    As introductions are made, stories are told, and ale is drank the noises of the tavern around you begin to pick up as well. Now that the last bits of the days light begin to fade outside the citizen of Neverwinter arrive in small groups and begin to enjoy an otherwise ordinary night in their favorite tavern. The bartender and the wait staff fall easily into their comfortable routine as trays of food and drinks are constantly brought forth from the kitchen area to various tables throughout the common room. The waiters move in a sort of dance, dodging misplaced chair and tipsy patrons alike, as they balance large trays of stacked plates and full tankards.

    A young human, likely in her late teens, catches sight of Sergor as he waves and motions towards his tankard. She nods politely and makes her way to the table to collect the cup and a few moments later brings it back from the bar full and frothy. Anyone else that finds themselves near the bottom of their mug is likewise treated in kind.

    In the far corner of the common room a group of dwarves breaks out into laughter at some joke unheard by the adventures. They hoot and hollar about various things for a moment before settling down again. Near the center of the room, at a large circle table made of a dark and lacquered wood, a game of cards has been started and is being dealt around cluttered tin mugs and a few bottles of cheap wine. A human man with the dark tan skin of someone who's spent a lifetime at sea begins to deal cards out quickly to a pair of dwarves with auburn hair, a half-elf, and a tiefling with skin the color of dried blood.

    Liuailo Galanodel

    Liuailo took some mental notes of the strange persons he was sharing a meal with. Sergor and Torinn appeared to be the muscle, handy to know who to hide behind when things got dangerous. Judging by Aeron's eyes, he was as cautious as Liuailo was, and that was never a bad thing to have around. Keys and Kit appeared to like to share stories but he really couldn't really say much more about them other than their outgoing personality. Maybe Kit was a bit not right in the head, but seemed harmless enough so far.

    When the card game broke out, Liuailo eyed its progress. Not that he was interested in joining, far from it. Games of chance involved too much uncertainty compared to his usual schemes. But when someone had too much ale and lost too much money, suddenly everyone around them is a no good cheat.

    Liuailo leaned over and whispered to Aeron, "I'd keep an eye on that game. I've seen too many turn violent and that violence spreads quickly in places like these."

    Torinn

    Torinn growls a bit at the tiefling for the "afraid of vampires" jab and grips his tankard of Rockaxe tightly, before downing the rest, choosing not to make an issue of it, after deciding she was just making a joke of some sort.

    As the tavern starts to fill up and become nosier and more raucous, Torinn begins to remember why he doesn't travel into the city all that often, as large groups of people bother him. He winces when the dwarves break out into loud laughter and frowns in their direction. Three tankards of ale and his volitile nature were all yelling at him to do something, but instead he decides to order his fourth ale, determined not to let his chance to drink go to waste.

    Aeron

    Having finished his mug of ale and what other food he could pick at. Aeron nods his head to the others and stands up. "It is getting late, and I want to be on the road early. Good night." He stumbles a half-step away from the table before steadying himself, hoping that nobody noticed. He then very deliberately walks toward the stairs, turns around, walks back over and grabs his longbow from where it was leaning against the wall, turns back around, and very very deliberately walks toward the stairs again. Ascending without too much difficulty, he gets into his room and shuts the door.

    Keys chuckles at Kit's vampire jest. He flashes her a grin; for the briefest of moments, his incisors seem elongated and pointy.

    The gnome twiddles his thumbs for a moment, but as Aeron gets up to leave, he can sense the evening winding down.
    "Well, I look forward to traveling with everyone tomorrow, bright and early. I believe I will pay my respects to this establishment; allow me to excuse myself."

    Keys hops down from the bench and finds a visible corner of the tavern. He pulls up a stool and stands upon it, his fiddle in hand. With a waggle of his fingers, several multi-colored orbs of light appear from thin air and begin orbiting the gnome silently. His fantastic light show on display, he begins to play a merry tune on his fiddle, tapping his toes in time. It's not the greatest song in the world, which is a good thing, since it's difficult to hear over the growing din...

    Keys cast Prestidigitation to create a harmless sensory display; in this case, temporary vampire teeth. He then casts Dancing Lights before playing his fiddle.

    Kit returned the smile, but the effect was only mildly disturbing - her fangs were real.

    She rolled back into her chair, tittering madly once again. "Don't break a string!," she called after the departing gnome.

    Kit paused to catch her breath. "And then there were four," she said, eyes falling upon the brooding dragonborn. Her mouth quirked up at the corner, another flash of those wicked canine teeth. "C'mon," she said more softly. "I've never seen anyone drink so much who wasn't either depressed or an alcoholic, and you aren't smiling. Why don't you tell me what hurts?"

    Torinn shrugs at the tiefling. "My smiles tend to put people off. My mouth doesn't pull in the same way others' do, so I end up just baring my fangs." The dragonborn bares his yellowed fangs to demonstrate. "Besides, its too rowdy here for me. If I didn't enjoy ale as much as I do, I'd be asleep already, away from all these people." As if to punctuate this, he takes another large gulp from his tankard. It appears that the alcohol has, at least, loosened the reticent dragonborn's tongue a bit, having almost said more now than the rest of the night combined.

    "No excuses!" Kit cried. "Who cares if you've got teeth like an abandoned cemetery? If you're happy, then smile! Seeee?"

    She demonstrated again, fingers tugging at the corners of her mouth. At least the tension had ebbed out of her, there and gone again in half a second - like quicksilver on a quicksilver sea. She must have been expecting the dragonborn to say something nasty.

    "You'll make more friends that way," she added, a harmless little jab.

    "And what good're those frien's when you live alone, far'way from 'em?" Torinn then drinks the last of his ale, sets the empty tankard down heavily, and runs his tongue over his teeth, savoring the taste. "Bah, I'm goin' to bed. Alcohol's making me talky. Don't be too late, you others, we hafta leave in the mornin'."
    With that, the large dragonborn stands up, grabbing his greataxe and javelins from their spots leaning on the wall, not bothering to holster them, and heavily stomps his way across the room to the stairs, giving little heed to those in his way, expecting them to move for him.

    Neverwinter : The Driftwood Tavern - Day 0

    In response to the lights and illusions conjured forth by Keys, several other patrons adjust their chairs slightly to afford them a better view. The sound of wooden chairs sliding across worn wooden floors interrupts the din of conversation and laughter in random spikes of activity. The group playing cards at the center casts a few quick glances to see what the commotion is about but for the most part remain engrossed in their game. Keys begins with a bit of a rocky start, which loses the attention of several of the people in the room who turn back to their drinks and conversation, but after a moment or two begins to play a merry little tune.

    Those who make their way towards the stairs are met by an assistant who directs them to one of three rooms near the end of the hall. Each room is small, though not terribly cramped, and has two small beds positioned against the walls. The rooms arenít anything worth bragging about, and the beds little more than stuff mattresses and rag pillows, but they're paid for by someone elseís coin and likely the last bed you'll see for the next several days. At times activity down in the main room picks up but never enough to keep anyone from sleeping and by around two hours past midnight even the most rambunctious patrons have found their way out into the warm Neverwinter night.

    Torinn

    Torinn groans noisily as he walks down the stairs into the tavern's common room, regretting drinking as much ale as he had. As he glances around and sees that he is the first of his companions to wake, he debates on whether he should wait for them to wake up, or if he should go and get the wagon of supplies ready. The dragonborn finally decides that he'd rather get on the road as soon as possible, and heads out to get things ready to go.

    Neverwinter : The Driftwood Tavern - Day 1

    The next morning's activities begin even before the sun begins to rise. Two of the tavern's workers begin to load a wooden wagon with the assorted provisions that Gundren had ordered. Two large kegs of strong ale are packed beside each other directly behind the driver's bench. Behind them a dozen sacks of flour have been stacked into two neat rows between several casks of salted pork. Near the rear of the wagon the men begin to pile in various bits of mining equipment: roughly two dozen shovels are joined by a similar number of picks and crowbars as well as five lanterns accompanied by a small barrel of oil.

    Regardless of if the adventurers all join in to help with the loading, just after the first orange-red rays of sun begin to speckle the towers of the city the wagon is ready to set out. A pair of oxen is yoked to the front and a pair of reins is looped into place and hung casually over the bench seat awaiting a driver. The animals seem extremely docile and are perfectly content to stand and chew casually on a mouthful of oats while waiting for their driver.

    With a few days travel ahead of them yet, the six adventurers give the wagon a final look over and set out on their journey south along the High Road, which leads south from the city and runs parallel to the Sea of Swords. To the east the mighty Neverwinter Wood rises just along the crest of the horizon and will continue to do so until the group reaches the Triboar Trail. Once they have done so, the group will leave the main road and travel east until they reach their destination.

    The entire first day is spent traveling the road south and is mostly uneventful. The road is dry and dusty but the occasional easterly wind keeps the summer sun at bay. No danger rears its head and aside from the occasional travelers heading north, a few deer and one very curious fox is the only movement the group spots along the way. Lunch is had under a large shade tree not too far from the road and while itís nice to give your feet a break after about an hour or so your journey is resumed until dusk. When night falls the party makes a small camp a little ways away from the road and proceeds to carry on schedule watch shifts through the night.

    Aeron

    As is his nature, Aeron is the first to rise, and enjoys a nice breakfast while watching the suns rays peek over the horizon. He assists with the loading of the wagon, and when the time to depart comes, he does his best to scout ahead on foot. When night falls, Aeron informs the group that he will take first watch.

    When morning comes, he will brew a strong nettle-tea that he offers to other party members. It's bitter, but it helps to wake you up rather quickly. Aeron is ready to continue the journey at first light, opting once again to be on foot and scout ahead of the group.

    Seeing that no one else either wants, or is in any condition, to drive the wagon, Torinn does so, his greataxe sitting on the seat next to him.
