  • 446 DR [Year of the Unblinking Eye]
  • Gorothir, the "Dark Prophet of the Night" to Shar is deceived into going to a place dedicated to Selune by his grandchildren in an attempt to desecrate the holy site. There, his many progeny who tired of being treated as slaves to their grandsire, ambushes Gorothir with the help of many hired mages (some who were originally in Gorothir's service). The "Dark Prophet" is slain along with many others.

    After the battle, an archmage grabbed Gorothir's staff and broke it, causing the staff to explode and kill the archmage. Gorothir's Girdle is snatched up by one of his kin, Jurguth Goroth. Shar would use the garment to corrupt and turn him to her faith. »

  • Eleint 11 Jurguth Goroth, the possessor of Gorothir's Girdle (an artifact to Shar) proves to be kind (and thus weak) in the eyes of Shar (whom Jurguth is high priest at one of her temples). Shar tempts Klaunauthe Draeyl, a more ambitious priest, to slay Jurgoth and take the Girdle. Klaunauthe does so in spectacular fashion, using spells to smash her superior on the domed ceiling of the temple during a ritual, using his fading life essence to raise herself to longer life and greater mastery of magic. Klaunauthe Draeyl becomes the possessor of Gorothir's Girdle. »

  • Hammer 3 The Fellowship of Athul's Sash assaults the House of Reverence to the Dark Lady (a temple to Shar) and slays all its priests and guards, along with its high priest, The "Dark Heart of the Faith", Klaunauthe Draeyl, possessor of Gorothir's Girdle (an artifact to Shar). Many of the Fellowship dies as well, including Athul, its nominal leader. Rulgond, a member of the Fellowship, takes possession of the Girdle, and makes sure that all the other members of the Fellowship also dies before he got back to the nearest city, a wagon full of temple booty with him. Rulgond forms a new band, the Black Star Band, and leads them into battle, always with wearing the Girdle. »

  • Rulgond dies with the poisoned blades of three treacherous underlings strikes. They fight among themselves for possession of the Black Star Band and their master's wealth. Only two survives that day, one is sorely wounded and thought to be dead. He is the one who comes crawling to Rulgond's body in the darkness and takes Gorothir's Girdle, hoping that it would bring him victory over his rivals. The Girdle does save him, but the turns out to be haunted with the spirit of Rulgond. Orgloth becomes the leader of the Black Star Band. »

  • 596 DR [Year of the Flightless Eagle]
  • The possessor of Gorothir's Girdle, tries to ambush Orgloth, the leader of the Black Star Band. In the attempt, he leaps from the second floor with a rusty dagger, but snags his foot on a rail, and brings the entire section down on both of them, killing them both.

    One of Orgloth's ladies takes the Girdle, and in the summer of this year, sells the Girdle to a Sharan underpriest in a distant city who promptly sends agents to her murdered (but they fail to find her). The ambitious underpriest puts the Girdle on a statue of Shar in his private shrine and worships it, hoping the goddess would manifest and reward him. The goddess does, and blasts the cleric to a staggering undead thing, and sets it to guard the shrine forever. He stood unable even to scream, as the goddess sends dream-vision to a young priestess, Lalondra Worul, to summon her to claim the Girdle. She builds a sisterhood of the cruel, the capable, and the careful. Thus is born The True Servants of Shar, each of them bound to her with spells so that her health governed their own, which extends her life. »

  • 697 DR [Year of the Triton's Horn]
  • The Dark Mother of Shar, Lalondra Worul seeks and achieves lichdom. Many of Lalondra's servants die, due to the life linkage magic Lalondra had established with them. Many of the underpriests of Shar riot throughout the Sword Coast, sweeping away the power of the Dark Goddess overnight. Uncarring, Lalondra walks her way in dark places beneath the earth seeking to conquer a new realm for Shar. Displeased, Shar deserts her, stripping away her spells and leaving her only Gorothir's Girdle. Alone and defenseless, lost in the caverns infested with drow and alhoon, Lalondra does not last long. »
