The Lost Mines of Phandalin

Backstory

More than 500 years ago, clans of dwarves and gnomes made an agreement known as the Phandelver’s Pact, by which they would share a rich mine in a cavern known as Wave Echo Cave. In addition to its mineral wealth the mine contained great magical power. Human spellcasters allied with the dwarves and gnomes to channel the magic into the Forge of Spells, where magic items could be crafted. The nearby town of Phandalin prospered at this time. But disaster struck when orcs raided from the North.
A powerful force of orcs reinforced by evil mercenary wizards attacked Wave Echo Cave, and the ensuing battle destroyed the cavern.
For centuries , rumors of buried riches have attracted treasure seekers to the area around Phandalin, but no one has ever succeeded in locating the lost mine. In recent years people have resettled the area. Phandalin is now a rough and tumble frontier town.
The Rockseeker brothers- a trio of dwarves- have discovered the entrance to Wave Echo Cave, and they intend to reopen the mines
