  • The Wasting Plague
    In a conflict between the gnolls of Urgnarash and rookery of Kookrui-Shara, shamans of Yeenoghu summons marrashi - spirits of pestilence from the Barrens of Doom and Despair - to blight aearee crops and spread a wasting plague among the avians.

    The Aearee War
    An Aearee named Sieska Waewielonn of the Okwalok-Shara rookery over the shores of the Great Sea discovers the name of Pazreal, a demon lord. With the fiends aid, Sieska becomes lord of Okwalok-Shara. Soon all the rookeries of Aearee-Quor abandones the faith of Quorlin and turns to Pazreal (all except the rookery of Tiennkoo-Shara, which flees to the farthest peaks of Kara-Tur, where their descendants yet thrive today as the crow-headed race known as Tengu, they are the only branch of the Aearee-Quor who never lost their wings). Pazreal teaches the Aearee-Quor how to summon Vrocks, but at a great cost, he took from them their power of flight. The Aearee of Shara never again ride the winds, except by spell or steed.

    Sieska then wages war on the other Aeraree nations to the north and west. Aearee-Krocaa is the first to fall. Aearee-Syran, defends with the aid of fey allies, winged treants, and soarwhales against Aearee-Quor's near-endless demon vrocks and battle rocs. In the end, Mornungongbarae (possibly the first treant), who had guarded the High Forest for nearly a thousand years, rises up and brings down the Quor floating city, but at the cost of his own life. His tragic sacrifice is still sung by treant skalds today, in a saga called The Lament of Mornungongbarae. »

  • The Leaves of Green does not reappear until now. The Gray Druid of the Ash Circle tries to sweep away all walls and buildings (with the folk dwelling in them) in what is now Amn, raising an army of treants and forest beasts to accomplish the task. The druid is defeated early in his campaign of destruction by the Wild Helms adventuring company from Waterdeep. They cut the book from the old madman's dying hands and hurl it away. It stops in mid-air the moment it left the gauntlet of the young Waterdavians hands who threw it, and drinks the fireball that his fearful brother mage cast upon it. Convinced that it was an item of great power, the Wild Helms gingerly close a strong-chest around it and carry it back to Waterdeep for examination.

    There it is seized by the priest Angluth Eriduth, Watcher of the Seatress Shrine. Angluth declared the tome to be a holy item of the god Silvanus, but his taking of the book is not readily accepted by at least two of the noble families whose sons had brought it to the city. There is a nasty confrontation, but Angluth survives by using the spells of the Leaves of Green.

    This does not stop A Waterdavian thief from stealing the tome almost immediately. The artifact is sold in Calimport to Torast Haeluth, a wealthy collector of magical curios.

    An unknown mage opens a gate into Torast's bedchamber and steals the Leaves of Green along with many other magical items, and slays Torast. »

  • A group of Harpers infiltrate Hellgate Keep using cloaking magic and reveal that Tanta Hagara is actually an annis hag. This revelation does not hamper the Blue Bear's respect for their chieftain. Hellgate Keep begins attacking caravans en route to Sundabar, and a few expeditionary forces of demons (tanar'ri) are sent to harass the Citadel of the Mists, Sundabar, and Silverymoon.

    Alustriel is able to defend Silverymoon with her magic, and the Gem of the North suffers no damage. Similarly, the Mistmaster of the Citadel of the Mist defends his home (with the help of treants of the High Forest). Sundabar however suffers greatly as the fiends break through the walls and ravaged though the city streets. Helm Dwarfriend leads a large contingent of the city guard to drive the fiends from Sundabar. They are successful, but the fiends leave the city burning. The city is extinguished in two days and repairs begin.

    In mid Eleasias, Turlang, lord of the treants of the High Forest begins actively defending the Citadel of the Mist. Tanta sends her forces of fiends and Blue Bear barbarians to attack the Citadel of the Mist. At the same time, the Mistmaster sends two Harpers, the bard Cryshana Fireglen and a priest of Mystra known as Spellviper. They carry with them two pieces of the Gatekeeper's Crystal artifact. The two Harpers volunteers for the suicide mission, and when the Mistmaster activated the artifact, a blazing beam of purple energy illuminated the skies over the keep, the magical wards surrounding Hellgate Keep to collapse and destroy everything in the area, including Tantra Hagara and the Blue Bear Uthgardt tribe. This also frees the surviving daemonfey of House Dlardrageth from their millennia imprisonment, including Sarya Dlardrageth.

    The attacking force from Hellgate Keep, unsure of what happened or what to do next, are attacked by treants, and fae (korred, centaurs, satyrs, dryads). While the forces of Hellgate Keep were defeated, Fauarel Blackhammer, the lord protector of Triboar falls in battle. »

  • The Green Dragon Mask is recovered from the lair of Claugiyliamatar in Kryptgarden Forest. Old Gnawbones himself is injured while blows were struck against Thay, the Cult of the Dragon, and the Zartruss hobgoblin clan.

    Claugiyliamatar arrives near the realm of Whitchthorn, an Unseelie Lord. His presence corrupts Ishaldra, the dryad spouse of Whitchthorn and Ishaldra's treant bodyguard. Whitchthorn, an archfey and now fey king, unleashes his evil against the dragon, but Old Gnawbones is too powerful.

    Ultimately, an adventuring party of Harpers hired to defeat Claugiyliamatar gains an audience with the fey king and Whitchthorn agrees to aid them to defeat Old Gnawbones, but only if the adventurers make a pact with him. »
