  • A weather-controlling mythallar is established in Zenith. However, the brutal weather continued to be a problem for those who chose to remain in the fishing village. It did become a popular destination for Angardt and Rengarth tribes, but its importance to the Netherese diminished to the point that Zenith is all but forgotten. »

  • The city of Monikar is created in Netheril in the southwestern forests. This strange subculture of Netheril hated all arcanists and wizardly magic use. Instead of relying upon magic, Monikar had strong ties with the dwarves, gaining melee weapons and longrange, nonmagical devices that caused explosions and allowed flight. To use magic in the city assured death. The city wouldn't even employ a mythallar with an antimagic spell effect to eliminate the threat of arcanists. »

  • Lashia the Dagger executes two of her students for the creation of a mythallar. She orders that the only magical items allowed to exist in Dagger's Point are to be real magical items. Anyone caught with mythallar-powered quasimagical items is subject to severe beatings and even death. Throughout the Golden Age of Netheril, more than 12 mythallars were smuggled into the city, but Lashia and her students tracked down each one almost the instant it arrived, putting its owners to death.

    Despite Lashia's iron rule, however, the city is a rough place. Assassinations, muggings, and other crimes were common - it was just that all of the profits for illicit activities funneled through lashia. »

  • A mythallar is established in the city of Earsome in Netheril.
    The practice of collecting an ear from a slain enemy comes into style (and with the mythallar's help), the residents of Earsome begin displaying their "earie" prizes in clear cases imbued with preservation spells. Ears from a variety of creatures soon find their way into Earsome display cases. »

  • Quantoul's interest in altering things (through his study of variation arts, or transmutation magic) led him to experiment with the his enclave's (Jockteleg) mythallar in an effort to allow himself and the other arcanists of the city to polymorph self themselves at will. What happened instead was a mass polymorph other effect that forever changed the citizens of Jockteleg. As he completed his modifications to the mythallar, all of Jockteleg's citizens are transformed into wood giants (voadkyn).

    Terrified for his own sanity (and realizing the danger of staying in the voadkyn form too long), Quantoul attempts to reverse the effects of the polymorphing, but to no avail. Fortunately, however, the knowledge and abilities of Jockteleg's citizens remains intact, a curious side-effect of the mythallar's magic. Of course, when citizens left the city, they quickly came under the influences of the harmful effects of the spell, namely losing their personalities and becoming true voadkyn for all intensive purposes. »

  • Tronthas Helgaras, a former student of Lashia around the time of her assassination and kept alive through the use of life-extending magic, takes control of Dagger's Point. Tronthas had kept a low profile throughout the turbulent times (for the last 500 year period, there have been a string of short lived rulers. Most were dual-classed arcanists, but a few crafty rogues managed to hold onto control for a while as well), waiting for the perfect opportunity to seize control and killing off adversaries while he waited. Trothas enacted much of the same type of rule that Lashia had started, outlawing mythallars and quasimagical items. »

  • When a force of more than 12,000 orcs tried to raid the city. The defenders of Xanth not only repelled them but also made an example out of the survivors that they captured. Using a mythallar-powered magical item, the defenders of Xanth removed the survivors' arms and sent them back to their clans. »

  • The city of Lachery is raised to enclave (floating city) status by Veridon. The floating city uses the magic of its mythallar to capture fish for export to other cities. Lachery levitates along the shoreline of the Narrow Sea, teleporting fish that swarm beneath the enclave into a storage room that is affected by continual Veridon's storm spells.

    By -459 DR, the Veridon had perfected the magical transport of the city's mythallar to be able to send crawfish and lobsters to one large holding tanks and regular fish to another. »

  • The orc forces of the Hidden Forest strike the city of Earsome, destroying all outlying farms and villages along the way. The city gates are destroyed along with the city's mythallar, and a war rages throughout Earsome as the city burns. Only the arrival of the floating city of Delia saves Earsome from complete destruction. »

  • -433 DR [Year of Words Regretted]
  • The process of Lachery to use the mythallar to transport creatures beneath the floating enclave into holding pens is not a scientific process. An ancient white dragon known as Wintercloak flies beneath the city and is subsequently teleported inside one of its cold storage chambers. As it tore down the walls to its cell, Veridon and his enclave of arcanists face the creature in the streets of Lachery. Veridon dies at the receiving end of a breath of icy coldness along with nearly a dozen of his arcanists. The survivors, however, kill the beast. »

  • The archwizard Shadelorn (possessor of the Crown of Horns) succeeds in creating a more powerful mythallar in Shadowtop Borough.

    In the fall of this year, the archwizard Shenandra, who had been working on a spell to counteract the phaerimm's life drain spells, succeeds in creating a counter spell that simply negates the phaerimm's magic.

    However, Shadelorn's research into the mythallar had been altered by the Crown of Horns, that now wanted revenge for its defeat years earlier. At the same time that Shenandra cried out in joy at her success, Shadelorn activates his new improved mythallar. Its activation absorbs all magical items, memorized spells, and continuous spell effects within 20-mile radius of Shadowtop Borough. Arcanists whose lives had been extended through magic found themselves reduced to ashes by the improved mythallar's effects. And Shadowtop Borough crashes into the Janick River. »

  • Eleasis 2 The Shadovars lose the Karsestone when several of Mystra's Chosen (Khelben Arunsun, Laeral Silverhand, Alustriel Silverhand, Dove Falconhand, Storm Silverhand) and the stone giant Aris attack and damage Shade's mythallar, temporarily crippling the enclave. Galaeron Nihmedu, after having a falling out with the ruler of Shade, Telamont Tanthul, rescues Vala from Prince Escanor.

    Elves and their allies drive the phaerimms out of Evereska in a tenday, and the city's mythal is restored by month's end, aided by Galaeron.

    Galaeron's father dies while fighting the phaerimm and inherits his lordship. Galaeron is offered the position of Master of the Defenses by Lord Duirsar (who replaces Kiinyon Colbathin, who also died in the war), but turns it down, choosing instead to travel with Vala to her home, the Granite Tower, in Vaasa, along with his spirit-deep mate, the wood elf Takari Moonsnow. »
