- King Jaszur of Tethyr is assassinated in a plot orchestrated by Lady Evelyn Emveolstone of Waterdeep. Elminster Aumar is responsible for her arrest and execution, but he chooses not to return the stolen regalia of Tethyr.
- Jaszur's twin, Olosar, succeeds him as king of Tethyr.
- Ebarnaje, a dark naga, claims the throne of Najara.
- The Phylund family is ennobled in Waterdeep.
- Prince Thaum of Impiltur, after secretly assassinating the king, queen, and crown prince the previous year, musters a mercenary army in revolt. He sacks the city of Sarshel, then marches to the Tower of Filur and usurps the throne. The regent Kuskur and young king Rilimbrar escape into exile, and beg aid from Queen Ilione of Aglarond. She sends her apprentice, the Simbul, who dispatches Prince Thaum. In his place, his son Imphras IV tries to maintain his grip on the throne.
- In Sembia, a young, dissolute noble named Sterth Zelgarik, desperate to refill his coffers and avoid having to work for a living (after unexpectedly inheriting his family's estate and then squandering all his money on lavish parties and expensive courtesans), is tricked by a wily priest of Gargauth into a shady business deal that eventually culminates in him losing his soul to the demigod of betrayal and corruption. Transformed into a blackguard now called Krysus Vaant, he terrorizes political enemies and commits countless offenses and blasphemies against the church of Tyr until the most powerful Tyrran priest in Saerloon petitions his god to send a champion. The planetar Resounding Justice appears and, after a confrontation and chase outside Archenbridge, eventually destroys both Vaant and the pit fiend Tenflames by sacrificing her own life.
- Members of the Tyrran church in Saerloon who follow the trail of Krysus Vaant's destruction come upon the statue which was once Resounding Justice and there build a chapel and shrine honoring her sacrifice and their god.
- After Thaum's death, the enchanted blade Albruin is seized by one of his warriors, a man named Adjuz, who travels the roads of northern Faerûn towards the Dalelands. The soldier seeks out Elminster of Shadowdale in order to learn the true nature of his unique sword, but dies shortly thereafter at the hands of brigands.
