1487 DR in conflicts

  • 10 Hammer The First Tymanther-Unther War ends with a decisive Tymantheran victory.[1]
  • 9 Marpenoth The monks of Candlekeep are revealed to have several agents of other groups among their number, including netherese, red wizards and members of the Moonstars - including Laeral and Alustriel Silverhand. When the netherese monks attack their fellows, the others reveal themselves and battle for control of the library. Elminster deceives the netherese into believing that he is Telamont Tanthul and Larloch convinces him to use the wards of Candlekeep to bolster the new Weave but then betrays Elminster by stealing the power for himself.[2]
  • 9-13 Marpenoth: The flying city of Shade moves directly against Myth Drannor. Telamont Tanthul drains the energies of Myth Drannor's mythal in order to turn the new Weave into a Shadow Weave for his mistress. Larloch strikes against the elves in the confusion and the Srinshee appears to defend them. Shade eventually crashes into Myth Drannor but a hastily erected ward protects the Tree of Souls from the impact.[2]
