Gundren Rockseeker was one of the three dwarf brothers who rediscovered Wave Echo Cave.[1]

DescriptionEdit

He was the brother of Tharden Rockseeker,[2] and the older brother of Nundro Rockseeker.[3] He was also a friend to Sildar Hallwinter, a member of the Lords' Alliance.[1]

HistoryEdit

Circa 1491 DR,[note 1] the dwarf and his brothers located Wave Echo Cave, the legendary home of the Forge of Spells. He excitedly rushed back to Neverwinter to gather supplies and gear, and hire a party of adventurers to haul the equipment to Phandalin. However, Nezznar, under the guise of the Black Spider, sent orders to King Grol of the Cragmaw tribe to have the pair waylaid by those of the Cragmaw Hideout. King Grol ordered Klarg, the chief of the hideout, to have his minions carry this mission out.[4]

Gundren and Sildar rode two horses across the High Road, but were ambushed and captured by the Cragmaw tribe and Gundren was taken to King Grol of Cragmaw Castle, losing the map to the mine in the process. The Black Spider sent out the doppelganger, Vyerith, to fetch the dwarf and his map. However, Grol did not wish to do so without making some coin in the process.[5]

Gundren later became free, and along with his brother, Nundro, administrated the mine.[6]

AppendixEdit

NotesEdit

  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.
