- ~1382 DR the Spellplauge was released in Faerun. Those that do not perish from contracting the spellplague are left forever changed. They are known as the spellscarred and are fear and hated, much like lepers. They are recognized by arcane scars on their body that manifest blue flames. More information given upon request.
- The city of Neverwinter is named so because of the unique qualities of Neverwinter River. The river remain warm year round, even in the harshest of winters it continues to flow freely. With a constant warm current feeding it the port of Neverwinter remains free of ice and allows trade to continue to the North when overland routes are impassable and other ports are frozen. Because of this the city has flourished with trade and gained the title “The Jewel of the North”.
- 1449 DR Mt. Hotenow erupted devastating the region and destroying most of city. Trade slowed to a trickle and the city all but died. The small villages and settlements that had begun to sprout were completely dependent on trade through the city, and those that did not burn in the cataclysm themselves were quickly abandoned to the wilderness.
- The citizens of Neverwinter who stayed after the city’s destruction are fiercely loyal to their city and intend to see it rebuilt into its former glory. In the meantime they just have to try to survive before they can get to that point.
