Chronicles of Tellus
Elmar Barthen was a kindly middle-aged shopkeeper. Lean and bearded, Elmar was the proprietor of Barthen’s Provisions. Elmar was one of the settlers who helped re-establish Phandalin after the wars caused by the Phandelver’s Pact. His shop helped bring all manner of supplies and equipment for those wishing to build a life in the rugged frontier. During this time, Elmar struck up a firm friendship with Gundren Rockseeker whose excited forays into the hills around Phandalin made generous use of Barthen’s Provisions.
In 4762 SR, Gundren Rockseeker had made arrangements with Barthen to ship provisions from to Phandalin as the the dwarf prepared to join his brothers in the newly rediscovered Mines of Phandelver. However along the way, Barthen’s shipment, Gundren and his hired guards were captured by Cragmaw goblins. Luckily Gundren’s new hires, later referred to as the Deitouched, eventually managed to escape the clutches of the bugbear, Klarg, and return the supplies to Elmar.
