Phandalin was a mainly human village located northeast of Leilon, where the road that ran from the High Road to Triboar faded into a trail.[2] It was raided by orcs in 951 DR and subsequently abandoned.[2][3] It was eventually resettled, however, and Phandalin became a frontier settlement of farmers and prospectors looking for wealth in the Sword Mountains in the late 15th century DR.[4]

HistoryEdit

Phandalin was originally a farming community. However, when the orcs of the realm of Uruth Ukrypt had destroyed all game in their realm, they went in search of food and turned on the human settlements in the area, raiding them. Phandalin was one of these settlements, and in 951 DR, it was overrun and then abandoned.[2][3]

After Volothamp Geddarm passed through the town and wrote about it, the area experienced an influx of tourists and adventurers.[5]

Sometime in the 1400s DR, settlers from Neverwinter and Waterdeep resettled the ruins of Phandalin, and it was well-established by 1491 DR.[note 1][4]

GovernmentEdit

Phandalin had no functioning government, but the townsfolk annually elected a "townsmaster". The townsmaster would serve as a judge and mediator, and also kept the records that needed to be kept.[6]

DescriptionEdit

Phandalin had three deep wells.[2]

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.
