Free Phandelver digital D&D intro adventure replaced by Intro to Stormwreck Isle

Intro to Stormwreck Isle is replacing Lost Mine of Phandelver as a D&D Beyond free adventure offering …

Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition’s original and acclaimed introductory adventure module, Lost Mine of Phandelver, has been available for free separate from the boxed Starter Set on Wizards of the Coast’s D&D Beyond digital platform — but the chance to claim the free title is about to expire.

On Oct. 10 Oct. 6, D&D Beyond says, Lost Mine of Phandelver will be replaced by Intro to Stormwreck Isle, content that is culled from the newer D&D boxed Starter Set that comes with the adventure Dragons of Stormwreck Isle, originally released as a Target store exclusive but now available more widely.

“We’ll release Intro to Stormwreck Isle on Oct. 6 as another no-cost introductory experience,” the D&D Beyond team’s statement reads. “It includes the encounters ‘Voyage to Stormwreck Isle’ and ‘Drowned Sailors.’

“In Voyage to Stormwreck Isle, players embark on a journey from a bustling Neverwinter port and face off against an ominous foe in the middle of a raging storm onboard a ship. Drowned Sailors is the first encounter from the D&D Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle and offers the party an exciting, albeit unhospitable, welcome ashore Stormwreck Isle.

“We have created a video series designed to help players and Dungeon Masters get started with Dragons of Stormwreck Isle, making both encounters a great introduction to D&D for new players and DMs.”

Lost Mine of Phandelver was re-introduced and greatly expanded upon in the recent D&D hardcover adventure book Phandelver and Below: The Shattered Obelisk.

D&D Beyond’s Michael Galvis said in a blog post that if you have unlocked Lost Mine of Phandelver before Oct. 6, you will still have access to the adventure even after that date when Intro to Stormwreck Isle supplants it as the free digital offering.

Our recommendation: Don’t miss you chance to claim this well-loved RPG classic adventure scenario for free.
