About the Adventure

Journey to the beloved town of Phandalin, where a malevolent cult threatens to overtake the region. Together with your party, solve mysteries and stamp out growing corruption as you uncover more about the peculiar happenings plaguing the town.

Discover what lurks below in this high-fantasy adventure that begins with the familiar story of Lost Mine of Phandelver and then delves into the perilous Underdark.

This campaign will begin at Level 1 and take characters to Level 12.

What if you’ve never played an RPG, what is it like?

Our games are player-driven, putting you and your character at the center of the plot. Your choices will decide the outcome: from heroic victory to an untimely end. We’re here to tell a great story that makes you feel like you’re in your favorite book or movie.

What do you need to do before the first session?

Upon sign up, we’ll connect and make sure you can begin fleshing out your character ideas, and that I can support you with questions about any of the tech programs that will be used in-game.

What does the GM provide?

The GM provides access to the D&D Beyond source materials. In addition, I provide game-specific handouts and other materials to enhance your gaming experience.


Character Creation Guidelines:

Characters will start out at level one. We will use standard array or point buy during session zero to create our characters. If you don’t know what this is, that’s ok! I’ll help you figure all this out. I ask that all characters have a reason for needing the adventuring party. I do not allow evil alignment for purposes of encouraging party unity.


Who will like this game?

  1. Players that desire to adventure in a lore-intensive world.
  2. Players who want to explore a world, discover exciting places, and make complicated decisions.
  3. Players who are interested in developing a story, interacting with various characters, and fighting intricate battles.
  4. Working together with other players to solve problems, and have a great time in the process!

GM Details/Guidance:

This campaign includes typical fantasy themes that one may find in stories like Lord of the Rings and Dragonlance with themes of dark and light abound. However, there are elements of subjectivity similar to Game of Thrones and that very little is considered truly “good or evil”. The game-world is how you make it out to be and player perspective is highly encouraged. Please reach out to me at the message icon above so I can answer whatever questions you may have!

Beginners welcome!

EJ is the best!

July 21, 2024

I’ve been playing in a campaign run by EJ for a few months now, and I have to say, it’s hard to imagine playing with another GM at this point. His high level of knowledge and expertise, combined with the mutually respectful (and silly!) environment he cultivates in every group makes for a consistently enjoyable gaming experience. He is so approachable, friendly, thoughtful, helpful, patient, *and* funny.

To put it simply: if you aren’t playing with EJ, you are missing out!

I played in a level 5 one shot with EJ and one other player, it was an excellent experience. The game had great storytelling details, an interactive world, dangerous combats, and player agency. What more could you want in D&D?

I was part of a recent campaign and EJ did a fantastic job. The storytelling was great, and the encounters were engaging. Excited to get back in and play again.


Really fun!

I had an amazing one shot last night and I had a lot of fun. A small group of people but it was still very entertaining and engaging. Answering any and all questions we had and made it very easy to play! Would def recommend!!!

Amazing DM!

April 19, 2024

This was my first time playing a full campaign and EJ made it amazingly fun! There were so many things that I wanted to do with my character and EJ was always open to it or found ways to make it even more interesting! He’s very easy to talk to if you have any sort of questions and I always appreciated how comfortable he made the sessions feel! Our campaign lasted for over a year but it never felt boring and there was always something new or interesting happening! EJ also creates such lasting and impactful moments between characters with his wonderful descriptions and narrations. I am so grateful to have been able to play with him and can’t recommend him enough to others!
