    Rise of the Vyshaantar Empire
    After centuries of fruitless diplomacy, the impatient, grasping rulers of Aryvandaar attack Miyeritar and begin putting political pressure on Shantel Othreier to join them or suffer the same fate. »

  • Dragons set aflame the southern expanse of Shantel Othreier (in their war against the giants), separating the soon-to-be-called Wyrmwood from its greater body. Tethir, kin of Keltormir (soon to be called the Dragonslayer), single-handedly slays two ancient red wyrms of the Ridge and saves many elves of his own Keltormir and Shantel Othreier. Tethir's stand earns the elves the respect of the dragons, which had previously dismissed them as ignorant, two-footed cattle. A portion of Keltormir's woods are named in the honor of Tethir. »

  • The Sable Wars
    Thearnytaar and Eiellur, with minimal allies from Keltormir and Shantel Othreier, invade Ilythiir, intent on destroying or reforming the dark elves before more realms fall. More than half their forces are decimated by the corrupt magic of the dark elves. »

  • The Third Crown War
  • -10900 DR to -10600 DR
    Conflicts erupt as accords finally fail between Shantel Othreier and Aryvandaar. The Aryvandaar elves were encouraged in their aggression by the fallen Malkizid. »

  • Battle of the God's Theater
    The God's Theater (present-day the Tunlands) on eastern Shantel Othreier is the site of one of the largest and costliest of all the Crown Wars' battles. Nearly 70,000 elves died at the hands of elf and orc enemies, as an orc horde 100,000 strong fell upon the already embattled elves. Aryvandaar won the day, and occupied the northern half of Shatel Othreier. »

  • End of the Third Crown War
    Aryvandaar conquers Shantel Othreier after the mysterious death of Coronal Ynloeth. Only Ardeep, a vassal realm of Shantel Othreier, continues to resist the Vyshaar. Guerilla fighting and rebel mages arise in parts of Miyeritar and the newly conquered territories. »

  • Through enslaved dragons and other powers, the dark elves of Ilythiir engulf all of Shantal Othreier in flames, destroying over 70% of its trees over the course of 50 years. »

  • Aryvandaar's covert persecution of High Mages and priests begins, as they attempt to destroy or control any who might somehow force their descent as they did the drow. Although not destroyed utterly, Illefarn and its colony in the Llewyrrwood (present-day Neverwinter Wood) are annexed by Aryvandaar as its nobility of priests and High Mages died under the persecution of the increasingly-crazed Coronal Gillvas Vyshaan. Many elves of both lands flee to the remnants of Shantel Othreier. »

  • End of the Fifth Crown War
    The Fifth Crown War ends with the utter defeat of the Vyshaan and the dissolution of Aryvandaar. Much of the High Forest is abandoned for an age, leaving the forest open so the gods might restore its peace. Many elves begin migrating back to the Elven Court in the eastern forests, while others migrate into the Inner Sea (this marks the last great elven migration to Seros). Keltormir and Illefarn emerge intact from the Crown Wars, and the latter realm joins with the vassal realm of Ardeep now that Shantel Othreir is no more. »

  • Full trade exists between dwarves od Deep Shanatar and the elves of Darthiir, Tethir, and the dwindling remnants of Shantel Othreier. »
