Lost Mines and After
A frontier town 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. An orc horde sacked the surrounding mines and Phandalin was abandoned for centuries.
Over the last few years, hardy settlers from the cities of Neverwinter and Waterdeep have begun the hard work of reclaiming the ruins of Phandalin and bringing order to the wilderness.
