Lost Mine of Phandelver
Owner of Barthen's Provisions
Barthen is a lean and balding human male shopkeeper of fifty years with a kindly manner. He owns Barthen’s Provisions, the biggest trading post in Phandalin.
Delivering the Supplies
Gundren Rockseeker requested that the adventurers escort a caravan of supplies to Barthen’s Provisions. The adventurers managed to get everything to the shop in one piece, and Barthen paid the adventurers 10 gp each as agreed upon.
The PC’s tell Barthen that they suspect Gundren may have been kidnapped. Barthen seemed saddened by this news, as Barthen considers Gundren a good friend. Barthen encourages the PC’s to rescue his friend.
Barthen also tells the PC’s that Gundren has two brothers, Nundro and Tharden, who are camped somewhere outside town. He hasn’t seen the two brothers in a tenday now, and expects them to return any day to resupply.
