The History of Phlan

Sorry it’s been so long since you’ve heard from us but if you’ve been following Baldman Games on Twitter then you’ve seen the #phlanhistory posts. Here’s the history compiled without our bit of commentary. I do have a conclusion about Phlan though, it’s a terrible place to live, much akin to New York City in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. To all those poor souls living there and defending that city, I’m so sorry. Please do yourself a favor and move to Waterdeep.
