    • Notes: The Lucky Dwarf silver mine was the first mine to be worked in the Protectorate of Dragon Fen. There was a work force of 4 gnomes recruited to work under the direction of Siffress Wildwander. There were several problems and delays as the gnomes became used to the new working conditions and Siffress learned to be a supervisor.
