1368 DR

Cyric had sought the soul of Kelemvor Lyonsbane, but was unable to find him. Cyric releases Kezef the Chaos Hound from Pandemonium, and commands it to trace Kelemvor’s soul. Kezef ended up being trapped again by Mask.

Kelemvor’s soul was trapped in Cyric’s sentient sword, Godsbane, actually an aspect of Mask, who planned to steal the portfolio of lies. Mask used Kelemvor’s soul to gain the cooperation of Mystra, all the while planning a revolt in the City of Death against Cyric. With the help of Mystra, Torm, Oghma, and Cyric’s own high priest Fzoul Chembryl (whose loyalty lay with the dead Bane), great chaos was caused in two of Cyric’s most important bases of faith: Zhentil Keep, and the City of Death. A great number of Cyric’s follower lost their faith, thus weakening Cyric. In addition, Cyric’s nightmare was freed from Dendar the Night Serpent, and the dream found Cyric, causing him to think that Kelemvor had somehow returned to life and to seek revenge. At that moment, Cyric lost his mind, crushed his sword, which freed Kelemvor, and made his nightmare come true. The two fought and Cyric’s fear, indecision, and madness caused his defeat, and Kelemvor overthrows Cyric’s rule in the City of the Dead. By the wish of all dead spirits and Denizens in the Gray Wastes (some say by Ao’s will also), Kelemvor became the new God of Death. Mask also emerged from the sword. Begging for forgiveness as Cyric attempted to salvage what he could of the situation, Mask followed his new master out of the castle.
