That being said, I will be leading the plunge with a foray into the Lost Mine of Phandelver, the adventure included in the Beginner Boxed Set.
For my players, here is the map of the area in which you will be adventuring:
You know Gundren and his brothers. Typical dwarves: greedy and lustful, but full of mirth and unexpected generosity. He's hired you to do a job and he wants it done right. You know you don't want to disappoint ol' Gundren!
You don't know this older, retired human warrior, but Gundren seems to have his trust. Perhaps that's good enough...for now.
