  • Realm of Three Crowns
    The raising power of orc hordes in the North leads to the calling of the Council of Axe and Arrow. There, the humans of Delimbiyran, the dwarves of Dardath, the elves of Ardeep Forest, the gnomes of Dolblunde, and displaced halflings from Meiritin collectively found the Tri-Crowned Kingdom of Phalorm.

  • 691 DR [Year of the Stricken Sun]
  • Lord Erthaer Javilarhhsson, the youngest son of King Javilarhh "the Dark" Snowsword returns to the court of Delimbiyran convinced he had found a valley he wished to call home. With the consent of his nephew, King Davyd Snowsword, Lord Erthaer raises a host of men and leads the settlement of Starshadow Vale (so known for its position on the southwestern fringe of the High Forest, poetically placed "in the shadow of the Star Mounts"), seizing the lands from orcs and other fell creatures. King Davyd elevates Lord Erthaer to the rank of Baron of Dauntylgar, and gives him title to Starshadow Vale upon condition that the newly installed baron (or his heirs) could hold the land for at least a dozen winters. »

  • 702 DR [Year of the Clutching Death]
  • Unbeknowst to the humans of Delimbiyran, and the settlers of Starshadow Vale, the orcs of the western High Forest consider Starshadow Vale to be a sacred burial ground, and it is the founding of the barony and subsequent wave of settlement in the region that forms a great orc horde.

    Orc raiders form the High Forest inflict heavy losses on the splinter kingdoms of Delimbiyran that were formerly part of the Kingdom of Man. Many of these lesser realms are destroyed before the armies of the Duke of Calandor finally defeat the orcs.

    Among the realms left shattered in the horde's wake was the Barony of Starshadow Vale, just eleven winters after its founding (and 1 winter short of fulfilling King Davyd Snowsword's requirements for Baron Erthaer Javilarhhsson taking rightful lordship of the lands). In defiant anger, the Baron Erthaer defies the gods and becomes a ghost, haunting the Starshadow Vale, and longing to restore Dautylgar to its earlier status and maintained for at least one full winter. »

In his death throes, the great white wyrm falls from the sky onto the remnants of Delimbiyran, slaying the Duke of Calandor and his retinue. Tyndal, his son-in-law, is proclaimed duke and relocates the ducal seat to the site of the Old Barony of the Steeping Falls. Construction of Castle Daggerford atop the ruined remnants of Morlin Castle begins immediately. »
