Bustas&Dragons: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
The Lost Mine of Phandelver.
Everyone's heard of the riches lost in Wave Echo Cave, even if they don't know the name. A once-powerful magical hub fused with a mineral rich mine that had been destroyed by ork raiders. It has been long believed that the cave was merely a legend, until recently, when an ancient map was discovered by a group of dwarves.
Our small band of adventures were hired by a dwarf to be an escort to the town of Phandelver, claiming he had found the location of Wave Echo Cave. However, The convoy was waylaid by a group of goblins and the dwarf disappeared. The adventures were able to track the goblins down to a nearby cave where they learned that the goblin orders were coming from someone, or something, called The Black Spider.
Unable to locate the dwarf, but having saved a human fighter from the goblins, our adventures continued on to Phandalin in hopes of finding a lead on their missing friend. Instead, they were greeted with a town run by ruffians and thugs, and a population both unwilling and unable to do anything about it.
