After defeating the enemies in Cragmaw Cave, the party that would become FAAHKM, they made their way into the small town. The party quickly encountered the Redbrands after checking out the Sleeping Giant and being attacked by them. The innkeeper Delphine told them that they made their home at Tressendar Manor on the hill just outside of town, the party swiftly made their way there.

After arriving, they went down into the cellar area and discovered a secret door that led further into the basement area. Behind the door was a crevasse and a bridge with a Nothic guarding it. The party made quick work of it and climbed to the bottom of the chasm to find some treasure. There, they found a fresh orc arm, preserved by powerful magic, Krillin ate it and gained the Destructo Disc.

The later on in the dungeon, the party found a goblin named Droop, who helped the party for a bit, then retreated to an unknown location after helping. The party also found a group of prisoners, a boy, a girl, and their mother. The party freed these prisoners and hired them as maids and a butler.

Iarno Albrek, an evil wizard made his home here, but the party made a fool of him, finishing him in a single round. Krillin claimed his Glass staff, a staff of defense.

The big boss of the Redbrands was defeated by Akor DeVir after she disguised herself as a Redbrand and swiftly killed his partners and pinned him to a table with her dagger, knocking him out. When he awoke, he was met by a pile of dead bodies, his friends. He wasn't fazed by this, so they just killed him and left.

The party reported their success to the Townmaster, and he rewarded the party by giving them ownership of the Mansion. Akor didn't like the guy, so her and Mittens broke into his home in the night and beat him unconscious, then lynched him in the middle of town.

The story of Phandalin ends here, the rest of the party's exploits happen in the surrounding areas before they left for Nohr.
