• 1370 DR [Year of the Tankard]
  • The ogre mages Sothillis and Cyrvisnea emerge from the Small Teeth with their army of goblins, kobolds, ogres, and hill giants (which they had been preparing over the past 14 years). They attack eastern Amn. After sacking Fort Ishla, the army of monsters attack Esmeltaran with complete surprise and quickly conquer the city. While the ogre mages did not find the Armory of Nedeheim under the castle of Dahaundar, they did find royal records dating back to Imnel's regime suggesting that the armory had been moved to the city of Murann after the Horned Mage's attack.

    The ogre mages then split their forces. Cyrvisnea led a host of goblins and kobolds west to Imnescar, where they and Cyricists of the Twin Towers of the Eclipse together sack the town. In Imnescar, Cyrvisnea searches the old armory hidden beneath the town, confirming that Prince Imnel had indeed looted it of its weapons centuries before. After leaving a garrison in Esmeltaran to occupy Amn's army, Sothillis leds the remainder of his forces southwest through Trademeet to the port city of Murann, where the monsters laid siege on Eleasias 22, 1370 DR aided by a naval blockade by the pirates of the Nelanther (who were contracted by the Rundeen).

    The siege grounds to a halt over the winter while the monsters fortified their rear flank against attack by Amn's army. »

  • 1371 DR [Year of the Unstrung Harp]
  • Midsummer Murann is captured by the ogre mage Sothillis and his army with the aid of clerics of Cyric from the Tower of the Eternal Eclipse. The humanoids seize Murann's gold-laden ships, trapped within the harbor by the pirates, and claims the city for their own as the capital to the new Sothillisian Empire.

    Sothillis wisely leaves the city's alchemists' guild intact, forcing its members to create alchemical items and potions for the armies.

    The Armory of Nedeheim is nowhere to be found in the city, but the ogre mages are uncertain whether they were deceived as to its true location or if someone plundered the armory before their conquest of the city. »

  • 1373 DR [Year of Rogue Dragons]
  • Uktar 13 Blackwill Haarken Akhmelere, using the ancient Calishite artifact known as the Golden Lamps of Samesaj, repairs the eastern tower and rebuilds the western tower of the Twin Towers of the Eclipse, thereby erasing any evidence of the affront to Cryic caused by the actions of Iryklathagra during the Rage of Dragons and the mysterious being known as the Sojourner. »

  • Iryklathagra succumbs to the Dracorage and attacks and shatters the eastern tower of the Twin Towers of the Eclipse before returning to her lair.

    Her lust for destruction unsated, she reemerges from the Imperial Mount at the heart of Shoonach (suggesting the existence of a portal linking her lair to the ruined imperial capital) and flies south to Calimport. Barred by a mythal from unleashing her fury on the Pasha's Sabban, home the Symbolic heir to the qysars of Shoon, Sharpfangs turns her wrath against the nearby Plaza of Divine Truth. During the battle with the temple's defenders, Iryklathagra's sweeping tail shatters the legendary Idol of Bhaelros, thus triggering an ancient prophecy. An aspect of Bhaelros (Talos) manifests in the middle of the courtyard astride an enslaved great brass wyrm. The resultant battle destroys most of Palace Ward (with the notable exception of the Pasha's Sabban) before Sharpfangs was finally driven off. »

  • 1374 DR [Year of Lightning Storms]
  • Ches 15 Selunites from Hydcont Abbey mount a moonrise raid on the western Tower of the Eternal Eclipse. They inflict some external structural damage, but are driven off. »

  • Spring Equinox A Selunite prior of Hydcont abbey in Imnescar is assassinated. Cyricists from the western Tower of the Eternal Eclipse are suspected. »

  • Mirtul 13 An elite company of adventurers, based at the western Tower of the Eclipse and said to be led by the half-ogre bastard son of Sothillis, mounts a daring prison break on the dungeons beneath the Black Spires of the Maiden, a temple of Loviatar in the Vale of Wailing Women in the eastern Small Teeth. All members of the Company of Rune-scribed Horns escape, along with a dozen ogres captured in the retaking of Esmeltaran. One of the ogres bring word that a clue was found in the last days of the siege suggesting that the Armory of Nedeheim is hidden deep beneath Murann, in the caverns of the Underdark once claimed by the Shanatarn kingdom of Xothaerin. »

  • Mirtul 21 - Flamerule 11
    The Army of Three Stars, made up of crusaders from the Dark Embrace (a rival temple to Cyric with the Twin Towers of the Eclipse), Hydcont Abbey, and the Black Spires of the Maiden, lay siege to the western Tower of the Eclipse. »

  • Flamerule 12 The western Tower of the Eternal Eclipse falls to the Army of Three Stars, and by prior arrangement, is claimed by the crusaders from the Dark Embrace (a temple to Cyric). A few of the defenders escape through the newly constructed portal, presumably seeking refuge in Murann of the Sothillisian Empire. Interrogation of the bodies left behind reveals the discovered clue to the Armory of Nedeheim to the commanders of the Army of Three Stars. Sothillis quietly dispatches a company of adventurers into the depths upon receiving word. »
