Lost Mine of Phandelver
Phandalin Miner's Exchange
A trading post where miners have their finds weighed and paid out. The townsmaster’s records were kept here in response of no local lord. The exchange was run by an ambitious and calculating human woman named Halia Thornton. As a part of the Zhentarim, Halia attempted to slowly take control of Phandalin since the town had no official lord.
Halia didn’t fool any of the party with her ambitions and thus no one in the party (at least openly) joined that faction. We still rely on Halia to provide money and gem exchanges. She also has been willing and open to helping the party. Maybe if she is able to work together peacefully with the other factions then could she and the party cooperate.
She would like to be in charge of Phandalin.
