  • The black dragon, Aglistralarraghautha and her brood terrorizes the many farms in the Reddansyr area and Aglistralarraghautha herself tears open a warehouse near Teziir, which was owned by Maeran Faerlin, a rising merchant of Westgate. Maeran declares war on the dragons, and asks for donations from the dragons victims for his "dragon hunt". He hires a trio of mages, a band of archers and a minor priest of Lathander, Alion Narithryn. They are known as the Hunting Hands. Maeran trusts the Tome of the Morning into Alion's hands and has him cast the dragonbane spell.

    The Hands were successful in slaying Aglistralarraghautha and all but one of her brood, but at the cost of all the Hands, save Alion and many farmers. Although Alion was heralded as a dragonslayer, he silently returned to his home in Westgate.

    Less than a month later, a high-ranking Lathanderian priestess appears to him and commands him to go to Reth, where a irresponsible noble merchant had let his pet blue dragon hatchling escape. Alion takes the Tome and presumably ends the threat to the Vilhon, as he, the dragon and the Tome vanish from the notice of historians. »

  • The Helm of Helm is offered for sale in Westgate. A Helmite priest tried to buy it and is refused by the Chessentan merchant whose shop held it. The priest returns with twice the asking price - only to be slaughtered by the Lawless, a sect of Shar, who had obviously set the shop up as a lure for clergy they opposed. (They killed a priest of Torm a day later, and sorely wounded several clergy of Ilmater).

    Clergy of several faiths hurried meet and hire an adventuring band, the South Shore Serpents, to hunt down the Lawless. It soon becomes clear, as the city erupts into battle, that someone high in authority was shielding or backing the Lawless, and the Helm had become just one more piece in the ongoing struggle for rule of Westgate. The Serpents fell one by one, taking the Lawless with them, but thieving bands and street mercenaries entered the fray, and the strife continued.

    A young Helmite priest, Carath of Selgaunt, hires the Wild Blade Adventurers of Teziir to slay the Chessentan and bring back all the contents of his shop they could salvage. The Blades are led by two sisters whose magecraft was growing speedily, and they use spells to summon monster after monster. They then loot the ruins only to find themselves under attack by agents of Thay, who had been waiting for a good chance to seize the Helm.

    In the struggle that follows, the senior Thayan mage is forced to flee, and the Blades reduced to one warrior and one of the sisters, Tayana, who is trapped in a curse laid by her Red Wizard opposite that forces her to shape change into a giant hissing serpent several times each day. Fearing she would be slain by fearful citizens, she flees into the wilderlands with the Helm and with her surviving companion, who soon dies of her wounds. Embittered, Tayana hides in the Giant's Run Mountains. »

  • 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. »
