You sit in the Driftwood Tavern after another hard days work, lost in your thoughts and ale. Suddenly you start to pick up on a hushed conversation at a table directly behind you. You turn to regard a trio of dwarves, all dressed in prospecting attire, large dwarven ales of their own in hand. In addition to its mineral wealth, the mine contained great magical power. Human spellcasters allied themselves with the dwarves and gnomes to channel and bind that energy into a great forge, where magic items could be crafted.

Mine Wave Echo Cave was a cavern located just 15 miles east of Phandalin and the location of the Phandelver mine. Wave Echo earned its name for the rhythmic thunder of pounding waves that echoed throughout its tunnels. The caves were noted for their rich mineral wealth and in DR, an agreement between clans of dwarves and gnomes to share the wealth of Wave Echo Cave. This pact was overseen by nearby elves and humans. Human wizards from nearby Phandalin joined the pact to help harness the powers of the Forge and soon they began crafting all manner of wondrous items. However in DR, the mine was assaulted by a horde of orcs under Uruth Ukrypt , and during this battle an enormous magical explosion buried the mine and its inhabitants for centuries. However their discovery was soon usurped by the dark elf Nezznar , who then used the Cragmaws and the Redbrands of Neverwinter Wood and Phandalin respectively, to supress the knowledge of it location.
