• 1312 DR [Year of the Griffon]
  • The city of Teziir is refounded on the Dragonmere by the Mlaerae, merchants from Westgate who disapprove of that city's wickedness, and see no way to break the power of the Night Masks and corrupt cabals ruling Westgate. The Mlaerae want a Dragonmere port under their control, and Tazaiir Bay (the best natural harbor at the western end of the Sea of Fallen Stars) is theirs for the taking, as earlier pirate ports on the site had been sacked and burned repeatedly by various Inner Sea city navies. "Tazaiir" was the name of those earlier cities, "Teziir" a more modern corruption. Tazaiir is believed to have been a long-ago human female pirate leader. »
