  • The Draco Holy Wars

    Merrourboros, circa -25,500 DR

    Quick upon the heals of the truce with the giants that ended the Thousand Year War, a sect of silver dragons launches a sneak attack against the gold dragons claiming the sole divine favor of the deity Asgorath. The gods retaliate against the silvers, greens attack reds, and soon all of dragonkind is drawn into the conflict. Their ranks already depleted from the war with the giants, this five hundred year conflict is enough to significantly deplete the dragon population on Toril and actually threaten extinction. »

  • After an attack by a flight of red dragons on the center of the great elf forest of Keltormir, the dragon fire sparked a forest fire that raged out of control. This fire extinguished four entire clans of elves, eleven giant settlements, at least four green dragons, and thousands of square miles of woodlands (the area between two great rivers, modern Sulduskoon and Ith). The once-unified elves of Keltormir splintered into a number of separate clans. »

  • Numerous settlements and many more elf patrols fall before a trio of nycoloths rampaging through the forest of Cormanthor. Rumors say jealous Netherese archwizards summoned and sent the yugoloths in to the Elven Wood merely to test what magics they had to array against Netheril. In truth, the archwizard Aldlas Sodhese sought the long-missing Nether Scrolls (the source of Netherese magic). He had tracked the artifacts to somewhere within the Elven Woods, and he summoned the greater nycoloths to wreak havoc and uncover his ancestor's greatest magic.

    The nycoloths, while normally competitive and argumentative, worked well together in their roles as strategist (Aulmpiter), stealthy warrior (Malimshaer), and terrible berserker (Gaulguth). The trio destroyed many villages of elves, whole tribes of satyrs and centaurs and at least two green dragons under Cormanthyr's boughs.

    Despite his not-inconsiderable power, Aldlas Sodhese was sorely outmatched against elven High Magic and bladesingers armed with magic enough to give the Khov'Anilessa pause. While elven casualties were still high over the daylong battle, they managed to nearly slay Gaulguth and Malimshaear and subdue Aulmpiter. Aldlas died when, in a spellbattle against the Grand Mage, an arcane hand reached to wring and twist his mantle around him, crushing him under the power of his own shattering magic.

    Coronal Miirphys, the High Mages, and a number of priests then used the N'Quor'Khaor High Magic ritual to bind and imprison the three. The nycoloths' invisable undetectable subdimensional prison floated high above the city of elves, unnoticed by all. It could be permeated by all sorts of energy and matter, yet it held the nycoloths as if its walls were adamantine. The nycoloths kept all their items and weapons, since their prison rendered both them and their equipment powerless and unable even to return to their home planes. They floated more than a mile above the capital, where they looked down upon the growing splendor of the city they failed to destroy. The elves set the binding ritual so that the only key to freeing the three was when a "red dragon that never knew malice or greed in its heart flies over the Coronal's throne". »

  • Kythorn 6 The Exiles' War (Weeping War: Campaign #4)
    A.K.A.: The Bone and Briar Battles
    Farther east of the mythal lay the towers and tree-homes of a number of exiled elf wizards and necromancers not welcome in Myth Drannor. Still, with the Army of Darkness forced through their lands and plundering as they went, these disparate exiles still banded together (with themselves and various N'Vaelahr agents) for the war effort. Notes about this battle include the necromancers' animation of those they slew among the Army, not to mention at least one enslaved green dracolich. The Exiles achieved victory by their swift strike of fireballs that destroyed the charge of a lending orgish party, which they then animated against their comrades. Most Exiles were merely concerned with defending their own lands and towers, caring little about the elves who denied them welcome in Myth Drannor. However, the humility of some elves (especially Spell-Major Josidiah Starym) and the obvious challenge drew a few out of exile and into the Akh'Faer.

  • Alturiak 30 Standing Stone's Blood (Weeping War: Campaign #6)
    A.K.A.: Vow Stone's Defense
    This battle, the last to involve non-Cormanthans in the Weeping War, was the only conflict ever to take place at the clearing around the Standing Stone. Despite their best efforts, many scouts and N'Vaelahr agents died before they could report the movements of a number of Darkness factions. They managed to unite south and east of the Standing Stone, though at least six of their "slain" N'Vaelahr managed to get word to Arms-Captain Selorn in Myth Drannor, so resistance forces could be assembled before they reached the city again. The two groups met at the Standing Stone, to find that the commanding fire giant colonel had conscripted two young green dragons to their side to counter the silver and electrum dragons allies of the elves. United with the Dalesmen and Cormyreans of the Snowsblood Trail, Cormanthyr's forces held the day thanks to the masterful strategies of Captain Selorn.

    Among those who perished in the war include Colonel Arak "Blazebeard" and the green dragons Praelorisstan and Agoshyrvor the Verdant. »

  • Kythorn 11 Clochir's Ridge (Weeping War: Campaign # 11)
    A.K.A.: The Last Charge of the Wing and Horn, Last Run of the Moonherds, Final Fall at Clochiir
    As the cavalry reunited for its first time in months with the return of the Wing cavalry, it might have won this ground battle had it not last its greatest aerial conflich high above. Aulmpiter had enslaved Naxorlytaslsxar the Terror Tenebrous, a mature adult black dragon, as a "pet". This, and other wyverns and other creatures were controlled by the magical Staff of the Windrider. In the hands of the mezzoloth General Nyzhink of the Imperious. The Jhyrennstar-made staff and its carrier wove a flying web of death about the surviving flights of cavalry when they didn't harass the ground forces, pulling wyverns, Naxor the black dragon, and two wandering green dragons against the pegasi and griffons and dragons.

    Until the Lady Ahskahala Durothil and her gold dragon companion Garlokantha snatched the staff from Nyzhink's hold, the Wing and Claw lost more than two-thirds of their members. Once the charm of the Windrider's Staff was broken on Naxor and the other flying attackers, many of them scattered, their natures not suited to open warfare or risky situations. The black wyrm, however, was far more offended and vengeful, and turned on the creatures that dared enslave her. The mezzoloth general was swallowed in two bites, as Naxor severed its head to ensure its death. Still, her attacks on Aulmpiter only ended a battle that had long since become a rout of the Allies. To this day, the strangely honorable black wyrm awaits a chance to repay the favor she owes to Garlokantha the gold dragon, though she isn't going out of her way to do so.

    The aftermath of battle revealed the worst. All the airborne cavalry and their riders were either sorely wounded or dead; of the dragonrider leaders, but three remained alive with five dragons among them. Despite grave misgivings, Captain Selorn allowed Lady Ahskahala Durothil to sithdraw the cavalry from the war and retreat into their mountain lairs closer to Semberholme. Both strategists knew the end was near, and they knew that keeping the cavalry active would mean their deaths and leave Elven Court (or other realms) unprotected in the future. With heavy hearts, the dragons and riders of the Wing and Horn flew weakly to the west, never to see the wonders of living Myth Drannor again.

The ghost baron Erthaer Javilarhhsson, possessed Tordath and then led him back to Firehammer Hold, where the charismatic young clan leader convinced many of his kinsman to return with him to the vale. The stout folk rebuilt Starshadow Tower within a matter of months, and then set about establishing a ruby mine along a nearby ridge.

    Less than two months after their arrival, the dwarves of Starshadow Tower were no more, and the ghost baron's keep was once again a smoking ruin. The great red dragon named Imvaernarhro, torn from slumber by the madness of the Rage, set fire to the vale, quickly killing Tordath and his followers and tearing into the ruby-laden ridge with his grasping claws. Since that time, the stout folk have avoided Starshadow Vale, but tales still speak of the fortune in rubies they left behind of Imvaernarhro's lair. »
