- Netheril attempts to establish diplomatic relations with High Imaskar. However, the effort falls apart when a ship given to the Imaskari by the Netherese is attacked by sea monsters and the Netherese abandon the Imaskari crew.
- A small adventuring party rediscovers the ancient dwarven city of Gauntlgrym. Consisting of Jarlaxle Baenre, Athrogate, and a trio of powerful Thayans, they awaken the ancient primordial Maegera when Korvin Dor'crae hypnotically forces Athrogate to activate the forges.
- Maegera, a primordial held in slumber through the craftsmanship of the dwarves of Delzoun and the elves of Iliyanbruen at the heart of Gauntlgrym, briefly awakens, causing Mount Hotenow, a long-dormant volcano, to erupt. A pyroclastic flow destroys the city of Neverwinter. Only the Winged Wyvern Bridge survives the destruction relatively unscathed.
