  • 767 DR [Year of the Awakening Wyrm]
  • Dornal Silverhand suspects that his wife, the half-elf Elue Shundar, is possessed by an evil spirit. His suspicions are confirmed when he asks a local priest for magical divination (the priest not able to know that the possessing spirit was in fact the goddess Mystra). Dornal slays his wife, which is when Mystra reveals herself to him. Devastated by the fact that he had slain his wife, Dornal wanders the realms, searching for his death (although Mystra watches over him and keeps him from it).

    Mystra, desperate to keep the 7th child alive, makes an arrangement with the drow goddess Elistraee, and places the spirit of the unborn child in the body of a drow worshipper of Elistraee (who was also pregnant, but the child had died in her womb). The drow mother gave birth to QiluƩ Veladorn, the 7th sister.

    Some time this year, an infant Qilue and her playmates manage to kill an avatar of Ghaunadaur and seal off the Pit of Ghaunadaur. »

  • Eleasis 28 Silence of Lolth
    Lolth falls silent, denying her followers divine magic. She separates her Demonweb Pits from the Abyss and begins to transform herself into a greater goddess.

    The Jaezred Chaulssin take advantage of the situation, launching attacks on drow-ruled cities throughout the Underdark. By year's end, thanks to their machinations, Menzoberranzan has nearly fallen, Ched Nasad is destroyed, Eryndlyn falls to followers of Ghaunadaur and Vhaeraun, and Maerimydra falls (unexpectedly) to followers of Kiaransalee. Smaller strikes in Dusklyngh, Jhachalkyn, and Karsoluthiyl weaken the hold the ruling Matron Mothers and allow male-dominated merchant houses to gain in influence. »
