I am interested in places which are warring within the Realms recently (as of 1370 DR and beyond). I do not possess sourcebooks and my only sources are from the internet and novels so I would appreciate any kind help.

I also would appreciate it if any of you could stay away from spoilers to The Two Swords, the final two WotSQ books, and Farthest Reach. Thanks.

[SPOILERS AHEAD]






So far I know of:

1. Obould Many Arrows v.s Mithral Hall dwarves.
Mithril Hall (1370- DR)

Important Battles:
-Battle at Shallows
-Battle at and before Keeper's Dale

Conclusion: [As of the Lone Drow]After the battle before Keeper's Dale, the dwarves are pushed into Mithral Hall.
[Please do not spoil me on what will happen in The Two Swords]

2. Cult of the Dragon v.s Impiltur and Damara.
Impiltur (1373) Border of Vaasa and Damara (1373-)

Important Battles:
-Battle near Lyrabar (with Taegan. I've forgotten the exact location)
-Siege of the Monastery of the Yellow Rose

Conclusion: [As of pg. 200 The Rite]The Cult of the Dragon stronghold west of Lyrabar is defeated and Sammaster moves to Damara where he attacks the Monastery of the Yellow Rose.

3. House Dlardrageth v.s Silver Marches and Elves of High Forest and Evereska.
High Forest and Evereska(1374) Myth Drannor (1374-)

Important Battles:
-Battle of the Lonely Moors.

Conclusion: [As of Forsaken House]House Dlardrageth is defeated at the Battle of the Lonely Moors. Sarya orders a relocation to Myth Drannor
[Please do not spoil me on what will happen in Farthest Reach]

4. Menzoberranzan/Ched Nassad v.s Jaezred Chaulssin.
Menzoberranzan (Date unknown) Ched Nassad (date unknown)

Important Battles:
-Slave Uprising in Menzoberranzan
-Duergar and Lesser Houses in Ched Nassad
-Duergar and Kaanyr Vhok's Attack on Menzoberranzan

Conclusion: [As of Extinction]The Duergar and Kaanyr Vhok's army is stalled from conquering Menzoberranzan. The battle still rages on although Nimor Imphraezl has been trapped in the Shadow Plane.
[Please do not spoil me on what will happen in Annihilation and Ressurection]

5. Phaerimm v.s Elves of Evereska v.s Shade Enclave
Evereska(1371-1372) Cormyr (1372)

Important Battles:
-Phaerimm siege of Evereska
-Shade attack on Tilverton

Conclusion: Shade Enclave returns above Anauroch, Tilverton is destroyed, and the phaerimm are defeated- their numbers greatly reduced.

6. Ghazneths, Nalavarauthatoryl and Minions v.s Kingdom of Cormyr
Cormyr (137? DR)
[I haven't read Death of the Dragon and I don't think I'll intend to do so, I wouldn't mind if anyone spoils me on details of this. Like the factions involved and such]

7. War in Chondath which is slowly erupting
Chondath (137? DR)
[I haven't read the Scions trilogy and I don't think I'll intend to do so, I wouldn't mind if anyone spoils me on details of this. Like the factions involved and such]

8. War in Threat from the Sea trilogy
Sea of Fallen Stars (137?)
[I haven't read the Threat from the Sea trilogy and I don't think I'll intend to do so, I wouldn't mind if anyone spoils me on details of this. Like the factions involved and such]

Important Battles:
Battle at Myth Nantar.

9. Ogre Mages vs. Temple of Cyric
Southern Amn (1370 DR)
[I would require more details on this]

10. Manshoon Clones v.s Manshoon Clones (The Manshoon Wars)
Faerun (1370 DR)
[I would require more details on this]

12. Reclamation Wars
Tethyr (13??-1369 DR)
[I would require more details on this]

13. Sembia & Hillsfar against Elves of Tangled Trees
Tangled Trees (1372 DR)

Conclusion: The war never actually got started though there were a few ambushes along the Rauthavyr Road. Larajin and her twin managed to convince both sides to stop the war.

Perhaps you would like to add the battles that were fought underwater as well, such as the events that occured in the Threat from the Sea trilogy where an important battle was waged at Myth Nantar.

We have fostered trust, recruited loyalty, and gathered the faithful. We have trained thousands. Our legions can cover the land, fill the sky and travel through the darkness. We can hunt any and all that would deny our heritage. Now is our time, now is the time of the Dark Reign(Rain) of the Empire of Shadows.

- During 1370 DR in southern Amn, ogre mages and their allies war with the temple of Cyric.

- The Manshoon Wars, again in 1370 DR.

- Although they end in 1369 DR, the Reclamation Wars of Tethyr are an important addition to the listing for this period.

Pardon my asking, The Sage, what were the ogre mages and their allies fightin with the Cyricists for what goal?

I can't recall if any reason than the one numbered as no3 here has been established (and I won't swear that's not a product of my over-heated mind too), but here's a few possibilities:

1) They don't like each other

2) The Cyricist's main source of income is ambushing caravans moving between Amn and Tethyr, something that will have been affected, badly, by the Sythilissian (spelling?) Empire having risen smack down in the middle of that rout.

3) (The most likely) The ogre-mages are in fact allied with one branch of the church of Cyric, that branch is not on good terms with the Cyricists following Blackwill Akhmelere.

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

I think the alliance between the ogre mages and the Cyricists was mentioned in LoD.

Well met

Excellent, Paec_djinn. Great idea to collate this list of events I have made this topic sticky as I believe it to be a good resource for all.

Paec_djinn, if ye could update the original post with any other updates from other scribes, then that would be splendid

Thanks for the quick replies. I never expected this much.

I've already editted in and I'm looking for details on the wars the scribes above me have mentioned. Please pay attention on where there are spoilers to me. Feel free to point out my mistakes as well and make your own additions should you feel it's neccesary.

For the reclamation wars, the best source would be Lands of Intrigue, which was still available as a free pdf-download at the WoTC-site last time I checked.

As for no 13, there were a few ambushes along Rauthavyr's road I think.

Since Death of the Dragon has been out so long I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to anyone, to mention that it was fought between Cormyr and monstrous forces (mostly goblins and orcs) under the leadership of the ghazneths (sp?) and the Extremely Ancien and Venerable Old Wyrm/Elf Nalavarauthatoryl.

In southern Amn, there have been several important battles involving the Sythillisian Empire and the forces of Amn.
The first major event is in Tarsakh of 1370, with an alliance between Sythillis, Cyrvisnea, and the Cyricists of the Twin Towers of the Eternal Eclipse (considers the Cyricists of the Mountain of Skulls and the Dark Redoubt to be heretical, and three-way-vise-versa). They put their priests at the disposal of the ogre mages, confident that their priests can be taken back to strike the Empire from within when the time comes or if the army fails. They do this in return for promised aid in an assault against the Mountain of Skulls.
After this, there are general assaults on all of southern Amn.
During Eleasis of 1370, the Sythillisian Empire assaults (and ransacks) Esmeltaran, Hillfort Ishla, and Gambiton and the King's Arch. The army of Amn manages to rally and successfully defend Hillforts Keshla and Torbold in some major skirmishes over the next few tendays. The Amnian army tries to retake Esmeltaran, but the entrenched invaders repel them, forcing the situation to a siege.
The primary goal of the Sythillisian Empire is achieved in the siege of Murann. Though they had advance warning of the assault and managed to evacuate many civilians by sea, the loss of life is still incredible, and a member of the Council of Six is trapped in the ruins. Further escape of trapped refugees is blocked off by the pirate band 'The Black Alaric,' who have a temporary alliance with the Empire. A civilian army assaults the siege army outside Murann, resulting in great casualties, but in the process nearly eliminating the kobolds of the enemy army and learning that Cyricists are involved in the battle.
The forces of Amn retreat in Eleint to regroup and formulate new assault plans, but everything seems to come to a standstill. There are a few more minor battles throughout the rest of the year, but otherwise there is an uneasy truce whilst both sides build up strength.

This is all from Lands of Intrigue, accurate as of 1370 for when the campaign is supposed to take place, right at the height of the war. I don't know if the rest of the war is detailed in any other supplements, but I'd be VERY interested in knowing what happens if it is.

So sayeth the Smyther, the Dark Bard of Amn.

Hello-

I was just reading through WOTC's Perilous Gateways detailing some portals across the realms.

One entitled Portals Under the Black Gauntlet gives some information about forces of Bane taking control of the city of Mintar on the NE shores of the Lake of Steam in 1362 DR. It goes on to say that they turned their attention to an inland town, Kzelter and took that over also (in 1369 DR).

I have not heard specifically any more about this - so possibly there has been additional organization of the underground attempting to re-gain control of Mintar from the Banites, and possibly they have assistance from some other source now. In any case - its quite possible that this is still teh situation in 1370 DR+.

Dhomal

I am collecting the D&D Minis. I would be more than willing to trade with people. You can send me a PM here with your email listed - and I can send you my minis list. Thanks!

Successfully traded with Xysma!

It wasn't and hasn't been. Only the Lake Esmel region and the parts of Amn immediately north of the Wealdath and below the Small Teeth (such as Murann and its environs) have been affeceted by the Sythillians. Look at the back cover of the LOI - Amn book for an indication of who controls what.

We'd rather have it off of her chest, anyway. No offense, Krash, but I'm thinking her chest is likely more picturesque than yours.

I think you are forgetting the fact that LOI occurs in 1370 , and the current year is 1373-1374. So we don`t know who is holding what currently........
