Lost Mine of Phandelver
Daran Edermath is a retired adventurer who lives in a tidy little cottage beside an apple orchard, called Edermath Orchard. A fit, silverhaired half-elf well over a hundred years old, Daran is a fighter who served as a marshal and herald for many years in the lands of the Dragon Coast, far to the southeast.
Upon retiring, he returned to the Neverwinter region, his original home.
Daran is a member of the Order of the Gauntlet, a devout and vigilant group that seeks to protect others from the depredations of evildoers. The order is always vigilant, ready to smite evil, enforce justice, and enact retribution against any who try to subjugate or harm others. Though he is no longer active in the order, he keeps an eye on happenings around Phandalin. He is happy to trade news with fellow adventurers, especially those who appear to hold to these virtues.
Daran has asked the heroes into into some trouble at Old Owl Well.
