  • League of the Silver Marches:
    To counter the rise of Obould's Kingdom of Dark Arrows and thwart future evils of the North, High Lady Alustriel of Silverymoon gathers the leaders of the region to council. From Old Delzoun, the Moonlands, and the Rauvin Vale come elf, human, and dwarf lords to seek answers to their common troubles. Out of that oft-stormy meeting comes the High Lady's Alliance, a confederation of city-states known as Luruar (the League of the Silver Marches). The initial members are; Silverymoon, Citadel Adbar, Deadsnows, Jalanthar, Quaervarr, Citadel Felbarr, Everlund, Mithral Hall, and Sundabar.

    With the expenditure of considerable time and resources, Alustriel decides aid Nesme's First Speaker, Tessarin Alaurun and rebuild Nesme. She sends a large detachment of Knights in Silver to drive the trolls back into the Evermoors. Refugees displaced from their homes due to the new orc nation of Many-Arrows are encouraged to go to settle in Nesme (in effect doubling Nesme's current population). By the winter of next year, the city's defenses are solid, and with the vigilant patrols of the Riders of Nesme and the Knights in Silver (along with a small force of Uthgardt barbarian mercenaries), the city has regained a semblance of safety. »

They awaken the ancient primordial Maegera when Dor'crae hypnotically forces Athrogate to activate the forges, closing the channels of water and the bound water elementals that imprisoned Maegera.

A pyroclastic flow destroys the city of Neverwinter. Only the Winged Wyvern Bridge survives the destruction relatively unscathed. »
