• -339 DR [Year of Sundered Webs]
  • Fall of Netheril
    Nearly all of the Netherese enclaves fall to the earth and are destroyed due to disruptions in the Weave brought about by the casting of the epic spell, Karsus's avatar and the subsequent death of the goddess Mystryl (Mystra). The body of the momentary god Karsus falls to earth in the eastern region of the High Forest.

    Karsus, also known as THE Archwizard, believed that the gods were nothing more than mortals who had mastered magic that he hadn't yet discovered. When he began researching 12th-level magic in the early -459 DR, he concluded that this was the power that the gods themselves wielded. His mistake was believing that common magic was what separated the gods from the archwizards, but it wouldn't be until the Time of Trobles in 1358 DR until Ao, the Overlord of the gods, demonstrates that there is more than just magic at work in the rise and fall of gods.

    Karsus was a man full of self-confidence and an unshakable faith that what he believed was the way things really were. Not even the pleadings of his closest advisors could sway him once a decision to do something was made. This character trait applied itself from the smallest of enclave decisions to the creation of the most powerful spell ever created, Karsus's avatar.

    Another facet of Karsus's personality also shined through to anyone who met him: He was stark, raving mad. He acted like an excited child most of the time, and his tantrums were to be avoided at all cost. He could be warm and friendly or ruthless and tyrannical; there really wasn't anything in between.

    Karsus went through many "special friends" during his lifetime. These were individuals whom he suddenly took a great liking to, spoiled for a while (obtaining information or services from them) and then tossed aside like a forgotten toy. Some in the Karsus Enclave viewed the designation of "special friend" as a death mark. »

Word quickly spreads across Faerun, and would-be converts begin showing up at the doors of the Morninglord's temples, seeking to convert to the "church of Amaunator". »
