Lost Mine of Phandelver
Cormyr (pronounced core-MEER1, also known as the Forest Country and the Land of the Purple Dragon1) is an independent nation in Interior Faerûn. Historically is one of the most prosperous countries of Faerûn.
The ruler, Regent Alusair Obarskyr, had her hands full dealing with threats like monsters and secret cults. She had the experienced Purple Dragons and War Wizards at her disposal.
Adventuring was frowned upon without an official license, but adventurers could likely lend a tremendous amount of aid to the overstretched Cormyrian military. Lady Alusair was known to offer land in exchange for services rendered to her country, so this was a place adventurers wanting to make a name for themselves tend to flock to.
