    Lost Mines of Phandelver (Play thru - Spoilers)

    I wish to thank new to Fantasy Grounds veteran DM Hossman for hosting an introductory session to Lost Mines of Phandelver, a stepping block to his campaign Princes of the Apocalypse. Hector Trelane played Otadek the Unfriendly, a curmudgeon old roguish coot, that stirred up unnessary trouble in a local tavern that good-natured Oskar Thunderclap the cleric had to quell.

    Looking forward to the adventure and the larger campaign. Signs of trouble revealed just round the bend for our next session.

    Nice screen grabs. Looking forward to the game! Some brand new players coming to FG for the first time, recruited by the DM from his meatspace group!

    Our adventure continues with Thorwyn the noblewomen fighter, Jhereg the cryptic druid, Arrow the fiery mage, Oskar the overly optimistic cleric and of course Otadek the curmudgeon coot rogue as we set forward to deliver vital goods to Phandalin.

    Along the way we foiled a goblin ambush and discovered that our benefactor and employer, Gundren Rockseeker who set forth on the journey earlier, has been captured. After some tracking and a bit of fighting with goblin sentries and wolves, we uncovered the cave where we believe Gunden is held captive by a powerful goblin leader.

    Many thanks to our DM Hossman for hosting another great session!

    Good fun was had with a couple first time FG players and a GM quickly mastering the tool sets. This time we also rolled in sounds by Syrinscape.

    Our intrepid band of heroes learned that most valuable lesson of all last night, NEVER SPLIT THE PARTY!

    In a series of mishaps and triumphs, we forged our way into the Cragmaw Hideout, discovering Karg the goblin leader’s lair. While the party was split, the goblins heard Thorwyn and leaped to attack. Otadek the meek took a mortal gash to the abdomen, falling to the ground, as Thorwyn was wounded in the fray. We decided the best course of action then was to RUNAWAY to regroup.

    Outside the cave, Karg and his minions rushed to finish us off, however, we gained the upper hand, defeating the bugbear and his bodyguards. “Inspired” by our victory, we decided to press forward to take on the remaining goblins and retrieve our curmudgeon rogue companion Otadek.

    We recovered Otadek, who surprisingly was still alive, however, Yemeek, the goblin’s second in command, took charge of the remaining goblins and rallied his minions against us. First Thorwyn our fighter was brought down, then Oskar the cleric followed by Jhereg the druid. Only Arrow our mage was able to sneak away unscathed.

    Now we sit, tied and beaten, awaiting for the goblins to make us into stew…at least we found Gundren Rockseeker’s bodyguard Sildar, tied in the chamber next to us.

    Thanks again to our DM Hossman for hosting another fun session!

    Epic indeed! No doubt Yemeek is thanking the raiders (i.e. PCs) for killing Klarg so he could complete his ascendance to powers. The goblin lieutenant has already proven himself more capable than the bugbear captain. It's up to Arrow to save us. Come back... come back, Arrow!

    Note to self: LEARN GOBLIN to better understand the enemy's plans. Otadek will win through cunning, not by frontal assault.

    Raz, see if you can edit this thread title to warn of spoilers: something like "Lost Mines--play session report (spoilers)"

    Looks like fun!

    I noticed that some of those assets weren't included with the original LMoP adventure in the starter set. Are all the pictures of Klarg, dungeon maps, etc included with the FG version of the module? If so that would be good value.
