Located south east, about a day and a half’s ride, of Summerstone is the small town of Phandalin. IT was originally a farming community until it was raided by orcs a few centuries ago and abandoned. It has recently been restablished. It has no functioning government but the townsfolk elect a townsmaster every year who serves as judge, meditator, and recordskeeper.
