Lost Mine of Phandelver
Phandalin is a frontier town Southeast of Neverwinter near the base of the Sword Mountains.
It is built on the ruins of a much older settlement. Hundreds of years ago, the old Phandalin was a thriving human town whose people were firmly allied with the dwarves and gnomes of the Phandelver’s Pact. But the same orc horde that sacked the Wave Echo Cave, laid waste to the city and Phandalin was abandoned for centuries.
In the last 3-4 years, hardy settlers from the cities of Neverwinter and Waterdeep have begun the hard work of reclaiming the ruins of Phandalin. It’s now home to farmers, woodcutters, fur traders and prospectors drawn by the rumors of gold and platinum in the foothills of the Sword Mountains.
