The Cragmaw were a tribe of goblins, bugbears, and hobgoblins operating in the Neverwinter Wood and on the Triboar Trail in the late 15th century DR.[1]


The members of the tribe sharpened their teeth, which led to the name of the tribe. King Grol ruled the tribe as a whole from Cragmaw Castle, while Klarg led a smaller group from the Cragmaw Hideout.[1]


The Cragmaws were hired by Nezznar to capture Gundren Rockseeker in the Year of the Scarlet Witch, 1491 DR.[note 1][1]



  1. Pages 30‒31 of Lost Mine of Phandelver describe the eruption of Mount Hotenow (1451 DR) as occurring "30 years ago", which would place the adventure in 1481 DR. However, pages 103 and 179 of Acquisitions Incorporated, a later source, state that the events described in the adventure happen five years after both Lost Mine of Phandelver and Princes of the Apocalypse. Since the latter is explicitly set in 1491 DR, and considering this answer by Ed Greenwood about dating the adventure, this wiki will use 1491 DR for events related to this sourcebook.
