Against the Elemental Evil
Gundren is a gruff but friendly dwarf in his early seventies. His blond hair is beginning to bald on his head, but that only makes his magnificent golden beard stand out all the more. He typically dresses in sturdy work clothes on excellent make and usually wears several rings on his fingers. Gundren is a hard worker and expects his employees and friends to put in their fair share. He has a good reputation is an excellent, if stern, employer.
Gundren has many and varied interests, including the potential reopening the mines in Wave Echo Cave, which sits a few miles from the village of Phandalin. He is working with his two brothers, Tharden and Nundro, and a veteran warrior named Sildar Hallwinter. Gundren hopes that the mine still holds secrets and that the new found wealth will enrich the nearby town.
Gundren has since been captured by the Cragmaw Clan of Goblins. His current whereabouts are unknown.
