  • The city of Treshla, north of Saelmur and the Lake of Steam, is destroyed by a group of beholders from the nearby Thornwood.

    The Balance of Belaros (an artifact of Tyr) installed in the High Hall of Justice, remains where it was floating, even though the building around it has fallen.

    It next comes to the attention of some followers of Tyr in the Masked Marilith, a shop that solid rare and unique treasures in Saerloon, in Sembia. The proprietor of that establishment admitted to Tyrran inquisitors that he purchased the Balance from an anonymous mage who said he had given up on trying to discover the true powers of the thing. The Masked Marilith and its owner are destroyed by meteor swarms shortly thereafter, probably sent by the same mage. The buyer of the Balance is a notorious merchant rogue named Luuthateel Dree who is driven by a hunger for immortality and sought to buy any magic that might help him achieve his goal. Tyrran priests offered him a choice between magical longevity (the most their powers could grant) and death, but Luuthateel escaped them, reputedly into the Underdark, and the Balance vanished again.

    It has been seen twice at market fairs in Silverymoon and Berdusk since then, but has never fallen into the hands of the faithful of Tyr. The Tyrrans have gone so far as to accuse the Harpers of keeping it from them. This accusation has been vigorously denied, and even Lady Cylyria Dragonbreast offered to undergo questioning under detect lie spells cast by Holy Justices. »

  • A rogue by the name of Bredisker finally takes the Tome of Torment (an artifact of Ilmater) east to the Thornwood when fleeing Ilmatari. Soon tiring of constant Ilmatari harassment, Bredisker sells the Tome to a priestess of Loviatar who was willing to endure the pain of using the Tome to get access to its spells. This priestess, Lalaskra of Ormpetarr, becomes known as "Leatherskin" for her habit of always wearing the hairshirt. She only removed it during Loviatan rituals, when she walked slowly through her followers as they scourged her with all their strength. »
