Lost Mine of Phandelver
Member of the Lords' Alliance and an associate of Gundren
A kindhearted human male of nearly fifty years who holds a place of honor in the famous Griffon Cavalry of the great city of Waterdeep. He is an agent of The Lords’ Alliance.
The Lords’ Alliance is a group of allied political powers concerned with mutual security and prosperity. Members of the order ensure the safety of cities and other settlements by proactively eliminating threats by any means, while bringing honor and glory to their leaders and homelands.
The party knew of Sildar through conversations with Gundren, but didn’t meet him until he was found being held captive in Cragmaw Hideout, about 5 miles northeast of where the High Road intersects with the Triboar Trail.
Sildar had been badly beaten by his goblin captors, but with some help from the party, he recovered enough to help them fight their way out of the goblins’ cave. He has offered some gold in exchange for an escort to Phandalin.
Sildar Hallwinter is a retired soldier and sellsword who hails from the city of Neverwinter. He met Gundren Rockseeker, your patron on this first expedition, in Neverwinter and agreed to accompany him back to Phandalin. Sildar wants to investigate the fate of Iarno Albrek, a human wizard and fellow member of the Lords’ Alliance who disappeared shortly after arriving in Phandalin. Sildar hopes to learn what happened to Iarno, assist Gundren in reopening the old mine, and help restore Phandalin to a civilized center of wealth and prosperity.
