  • Winter Solstice Galaeron Nihmedu leads his patrol into an ancient crypt housing seven Aryvandaaran nobles. The patrol tracked down a band of humans and followed them through a dwarven tunnel to where they were using a beholder to carve a path to the Sharn Wall. The humans were trying to locate Melegaunt Tanthul, one of the 12 Princes from the ancient Netherese city of Shade. The elves had a small skirmish with the crypt-breakers, and then Melegaunt himself appeared. Galaeron’s and Melegaunt’s magical bolts collided, creating an explosion that punctured a hole in the Sharn Wall (due to the collision of weave and shadow weave magic), and thus freeing the phaerimm. The phaerimm begin a siege of the elven city of Evereska.

    The leader of the human band, Vala Thorsdotter, was loyal to Melegaunt through a debt made by her great grandfather, Bodvar. As more phaerimm escaped through the breach, they began gathering armies of bugbears, illithids, and beholders. Melegaunt, Vala, and Galaeron goes on a journey to stop the phaerimm, Melegaunt leading the way but not telling them where they were going. On their journey, they are eventually accompanied by a little man named Malik el Sami yn Nasser (actually the Seraph of Lies, the highest honor bestowed by Cyric) and Aris, a stone giant priest whom Galaeron rescued from beholders serving the phaerimm. Along the way, Melegaunt took advantage of Galaeron’s sorcery skills to teach him how to use the Shadow Weave. »

  • 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. »

  • Sembia attacks the Dalelands and captures Archendale.

    Erevis Cale's son Vasen and his companions Orsin and Gerak are transported to Cania by Drasek Riven where they free Erevis from his one hundred year magical imprisonment.

    Vasen Cale uses the power of Amaunator to sever the god Mask's power from Rivalen, Mephistopheles and Drasek Riven with the expectation that Erevis will claim the power. Instead, Riven agrees to accept the burden of divinity and becomes the reborn Mask.

    After existing for one hundred years under the noses of the Shadovar, the oracle of the Abbey of the Rose removes the abbey's wards and shortly thereafter the abbey is found by two servants of Mephistopheles, Zeeahd and Sayeed, who mostly destroy the abbey.

    Princes of Shade Vattick Tanthul is killed by Dove Falconhand.
    Dove then succumbs to injuries sustained during her battle with Vattick while rallying the baelnorn of Myth Drannor to come out of their tombs and defend their city.

    Telamont Tanthul drains the energies of Myth Drannor's mythal in order to turn the new Weave into a Shadow Weave for his mistress.

    Larloch strikes against the elves in the confusion and the Srinshee appears to defend them. The Srinshee sacrifices herself to wrest the stolen Weave energy from Larloch (which was part of his plans to become the new god of magic) and Telamont and bolster Mystra's new Weave. She also teleports Ilsevele Miritar and Fflar Melruth to safety in Semberholme.
