  • The priestess of Auril, Shalara of the Seven Kisses is known to be in possession of The Silver Supplicant (an artifact of Auril, a statuette in the likeness of the "First Frostmaiden", Thaulatiiya). "Coldeyes", as some call Shalara, carries it about as she travels the western Heartlands. Shalara acts as a warden of the faith in the lands around Iriaebor and Scornubel, visiting shrines, hermitages, and mountain-cavern temples in rotation, to advise and direct both clergy and lay worshippers. She meted out "the discipline of the divine" against faithful who transgressed, and is widely feared among them, but she also avenges wrongs done to the faithful by those outside the faith. To carry out such work, Shalara leads a force of three priests, a mageling, and a half-dozen warrors (all skilled horse archers with arrows of cold). She employs the Supplicant both as a source of spells for herself and as a holy relic to awe and inspire the faithful. »

  • 1212 DR [Year of Ocean's Wrath]
  • Unchartered adventurers explore the Fields of the Dead north of Elturel found a tomb beneath the Hill of the Headless Dancer. They speculated that the dancing zombie for whom the hill was named was Falaera, animated by whoever had populated the tomb with guardian undead. The Flame of the Spirit is set into a door, its base protruding to form the door handle (so as to burn all non-Tymorans who try to open the door). The door led only to a string of traps, but the rest of the tomb, hidden beyond a concealed door, is furnished as the abode of a wizard - an absent wizard who presumably had met with misfortune while away from home, and would never return. The adventurers took the Flame away in a coffer and sold it to a gem merchant in Iriaebor, not bothering to warn him of its properties. He disappears within a tenday. »

  • 1264 DR [Year of the Shattered Alter]
  • The Helm of Helm (an artifact of Helm) rises out of a battlefield bog, presenting itself to the Helmite cleric Garshond in the defense of Iriaebor against a hobgoblin-led army of mixed orcs and goblins. Some clergy then and now believe that Helm took it from the bones of an older, forgotten champion of his faith, one whose bones lay under the waters of that bog.

    Garshond takes the Helm back to The Watchtower of the Vigilant, his fledgling temple-keep in Harkstag (a long-vanished village that stood northeast of Serpent's Cowl, in what is now scrub woodland. Then, as now, the area is infested with lurking yuan-ti). There he calls a council to which he invites the most law-abiding, old money families of Waterdeep, Iriaebor, and Scornubel. Most send their nearest merchant agents, but a few send younger sons, and to them all Garshond preached the common benefits of well-guarded roads and an elite, disciplined band of guardian knights.

    The Council of Helm is a great success, and establishes Garshond as the most important Helmite priest of his day. Some of the nobles stayed to join the envisaged Vigilant Riders, and others send senior agents with money to sponsor the band and so formalize its obligations to the merchants using the area. The Riders undertake to patrol the roads linking Waterdeep, Baldur's Gate, Elturel, Scornubel, Iriaebor, and the smaller towns and villages between. This does not please the brigands and goblinkin in the area, whose depredations had made the lightly populated lands between Amn, the Sea of Fallen Stars, and Waterdeep the most dangerous for travelers in all Faerun. »

  • 1298 DR [Year of the Pointed Bone]
  • The Book of Fangs and Talons appears in Elversult where Malarites hold an open conclave to plan their dispositions in the lands north of Amn, east of Iriaebor, and west of Vaasa. The book is featured as a holy object in many rituals during the long tenday gathering. It is known to have been taken north by a certain Onglukh Neirim, who styled himself the "Holy Stalker of Malar". Onglukh set about breeding great cats and other rare, large predators in secret near the Border Forest, feeding them on orcs, flinds, and ogres (whose decline in the area dates from this time). »

  • 1363 DR [Year of the Wyvern]
  • Hammer 15 Zhentarim forces cause the disappearance of Bron, Lord of Iriaebor, in the cold, stormy previous autumn, and openly replace Bron with their own puppet ruler, "Lord Cutter" (an ambitious female Zhentarim wizard using a male guise). Her rule over Iriaebor is harsh but shaky. »

  • Marpenoth 15 "Lord Cutter's" (an ambitious female Zhentarim wizard using a male guise) rule over Iriaebor is harsh but shaky, and daring adventurers bring about her downfall. The imprisoned Bron is then restored to lordship over the city. »

  • 1367 DR [Year of the Shield]
  • Hammer The Spotted Plague wracks Iriaebor. The fact that it struck in winter alarms authorities who link it to tattooed men and women seen in the city only scant weeks before the outbreak. They are suspected to have been followers of Talona. »

  • The Leaves of Green (an artifact of Silvanus) is seen at an inn in Iriaebor, when a traveling hiresword brings it out to back up a boastful tale of adventure. His bedchambers are attacked in search of the Leaves. The hiresword departs (possibly for Waterdeep or somewhere in the norther Sword Coast). »

  • Kythorn 10 Dabron's caravan leaves Hluthvar, heading for Irieabor. The Tyrant of the Moonsea (Fzoul Chembryl) issues a proclamation in which he claims that all trade in the "instruments of tyranny" is the sole province of the church of Bane. This is widely interpreted as a move by the Zhentarim to seize control of the weapons and arms trade in the Heartlands at the expanse of the Iron Throne. »
