Phandalin was a human village located northeast of Leilon, at the far western end of the Triboar Trail.
Phandalin was originally a farming community. The orcs of the realm of Uruth Ukrypt (“Home of Uruth”) had destroyed all game in their realm, and, in search of food, they 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.
Sometime in the 1400s DR, settlers from Neverwinter and Waterdeep had resetted the ruins of Phandalin. Phandalin became a frontier settlement of farmers and prospectors looking for wealth in the Sword Mountains.
