So - we played the first game of Lost Mine of Phandelver last night with a party of 5.
The video is currently sat on my computer ready to upload and the audio is on Lockhart's recorder, hopefully being sent at some point today so I can get it out on the feed this evening Due to issues at our end I don't trust the audio quality so @Lockhart has been recording the audio and sending them to me and they have been better quality for the most part - Grrrrr Comcast!
I felt the game went well - the characters are interesting and even having two rogues in the party at level 1 they felt significantly different. The first fight was a typical Level 1 struggle where every hit has the potential to fell someone.
There were some rules snafus in there but we are still learning and I think we manage to correct everything by the end.
As it was just the start of the adventure there was some background and set up and some character description stuff before we got into the meat of things.
The party at the moment consists of:
Lindsay as Marigold Mudpetal - Stout Halfling Rogue specializing in Stealth, Perception, Thieves Tools and wielding 2 shortsword to great effect
Things as Thror Rumnaheim - Mountain Dwarf Cleric of Moradin
Heather as Heleh Thornvast - High Elf Wizard using ranged attack spells to aid the party
Nick as Guybrush Threpwood - Wood Elf Rogue so awesome he even managed to steal his name. Specializing in archery and Acrobatics.
Lockhart as Roderick Hellbeater - Human Fighter of the Protector variety - clearly he has some kind of death wish
And I am running it - hopefully managing to do it some justice
