  • War of the Seldarine
    Araushnee is cast down into the Demonweb Pits, where she becomes the demon-goddess Lolth.

    For his betrayal, the solar Malkizid (who served the whole Seldarine and seduced into betrayal by Araushnee) is branded (a constantly bleeding wound on his forehead, giving him the title "the Branded King") and thrown down into the Nine Hells by Corellon Larethian. There, he quickly rose in the hierarchy of Hell and soon controlled his own dominion (although, at some point later, he loses favor with Asmodeus and is exiled from the Nine Hells to take up residence in the Blood Rift, the native plane of the yugoloths). »

  • Continuing their work to undermine dragon rule, the Fey open new gates allowing the first elves to immigrate to Toril. These primitive green elves worship the Faerie gods (not the Seldarine, which were unknown at this time). Although most green elves are content to remain in small scattered tribes, one group known as the Ilythiiri negotiates with the dragons and begins to carve out a small kingdom in the south. The great Ilythiiri capital at Atorrnash remains a shining beacon of elf culture for millennia. »

  • In opposition to the corrupt dark elves of Ilythiir and their continued destruction of the forested elven homelands by fire (an elven enemy of long-standing), over 1,000 priests and High Mages in neutral Illefarn and other free areas spend decades in fervent prayer for salvation by Corellon Larethian and the Seldarine gods. »

  • Elves are summoned by the Seldarine to the site that becomes the Elven Court one month after the Descent of the Drow, to settle differences and restore peace among the elves. »

  • Like their kin elsewhere, the dark elves of Narathmault are transformed into drow by the will of the Seldarine, shattering their bindings over a host of fiends who swiftly turn on their former masters. Led by Undrek of Clan Sethomiir, the drow and their minotaur servants are forced to flee Narathmault, traveling south and east into the underground caverns beneath the present-day Plateau of Thay. »

  • The Fifth Crown War
  • -9200 DR to -9000 DR
    The First Proclamation of the Elven Court leads to the revolt of the nobles of Aryvandaar, and the last Crown War begins. The Elven Court, the Seldarine priesthoods, and the long-hidden High Mages restore pockets of resistance and freedom across the entire Vyshantaar Empire, fragmenting the armies and nobles to limit their coordination. »

  • The archer-guard Shevarash, in an anger-tinged prayer to Corellon, vows to become the Seldarine's hand against the drow to extract revenge for the loss of his family during the Dark Court Slaughter. The Black Archer never smiled again, as he sought to kill Lolth and all her followers. »

  • Shevarash the Black Archer dies but undergoes apotheosis to become the Night Hunter and Arrow Bringer. This green elf demigod of the Seldarine is still a hunter and vengeful destroyer of drow, but now hunts Lolth and Vhaeraun directly (though he no longer considers Eilestraee and her worshipers to be among his prey). »

  • Attempts to raise a mythal over the sea elf capital of Coryselmal fail. Feeling betrayed by the Seldarine, Coronal Essyl Merynth of Aryselmalyr succumbs to the whispers of Dagon and begins sliding quietly into madness. »
