The Lost Mine of Phandelver
One of the primary sources of income for the tribe was the ambushing of traders traveling to and from the city of Neverwinter, attracted by the economic revitalization of Phandalin. The goblins set up a local hideout a few miles north of a thicket just off of the Triboar Trail which served as a staging ground for ambushes.
The Cragmaw Hideout was delegated to the mercenary command of Klarg, a cruel bugbear who lorded over the hideout as the goblins’ chief. His second in command, an ambitious goblin named Yeemik, resented Klarg’s appointment and plotted treachery against him, believing himself more deserving of command.
The Phandalin Force Five cleared both Cragmaw Hideout and Cragmaw Castle, effectively scattering goblin forces in the Triboar Trail region. Klarg, Yeemik, Grol, and many other goblinoids and underlings were slain. Isolated pockets of goblins may still cause trouble, but it is unlikely that they will be able to reorganize as long as they remain leaderless.
