• 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. »

    With the destruction of the Night Masks, Erevis Cale (once a member) moves to Sembia and joines the Night Knives. This organisation places him in with the wealthy merchant Uskevren family as the head butler, a placement he created by murdering the previous butler, as a spy for potential thieving operations that may arise in the Uskevren estate. Because of the speed and intensity with which Erevis became friends with the patriarch of the Uskevren family, Thamalon, his loyalties split. He spends much of the decade that he worked for the Uskevren sending misinformation back to his guild and feeding them information about merchants other than the Uskevren themselves. »
