Wave Echo Cave
Wave Echo cave is hidden deep in the vales of the Sword Coast Mountains, about a days hike east of Phandalin.
The rich mine of the Phandelver’s Pact was lost 500 years ago during orc invasions that devastated this part of the North. The orcish army, reinforced by evil mercenary wizards, attacked the Wave Echo Cave to seize it’s riches and magic treasures. The humans, dwarves, and gnomes allied under Phandelver’s Pact fought to defend the mine, and the ensuing battle destroyed much of of the cavern. Few survived the cave-ins and tremors, and the location of the cave was lost.
