- Responding to Uthtower's plea for help, the lich Iniarv uses powerful magic to raise the level of a portion of the Sea of Swords, which floods the kingdom of Uthtower, killing untold numbers of humanoids and creating the Mere of Dead Men when the waters recede.
- Iniarv's flood wipes out the armies of Uthtower, Phalorm, and the orc hordes besieging them. As the surviving orcs flee into the Sword Mountains, the elves of Phalorm retreat to Evermeet. Already wounded by orc attacks, the Tri-Crowned Kingdom of Phalorm falls.
- With the retreat of the elves of Phalorm, Ardeep is only nominally an elf realm.
- The lamia Nessmara takes the form of a gynosphinx and seduces Lyonarth, the "Winter Sphinx", ruler of Westgate. The two rule the city together.
