Acamar was a star-like entity from the Far Realm who had taken a place among stars of Realmspace. Unlike normal stars, Acamar didn't have a fixed place in the sky but instead danced and wavered across Realmspace.[1]

Description[]

Acamar was a dead star of utterly black inky nothingness that ate other celestial bodies that drew too close to it.[1][2]

Activities[]

Acamar and the other Far Realm–infested stars of Realmspace were somehow related to the Eldest.[1]

Acamar's hunger was endless, and when its influence on Toril was at its peak, it sent its agents, the Maws of Acamar, to devour everything they encountered in their path to sate the hunger of the dead star.[2]

Acamar was usually sought out by some warlocks to make a pact with it.[1] Neogi were one race that had made a pact with it and the other Far Realm-infested stars.[3]

History[]

Acamar was one of the stars the warlock Japheth Donard sought out in 1396 DR, after losing his pact with the archfey Neifion.[1]

In 1492 DR,[note 1] Acamar, posing as an imaginary lover, taunted Skrianna Shadowdusk.[4]

Appendix[]

Notes[]

  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but Christopher Perkins answered a question via Twitter and stated the year was 1492 DR. Corroborating this, Dragon Heist page 20 refers to events of Death Masks (set in 1491 DR) as being "last year". Unless a canon source contradicts this assertion, this wiki will use 1492 DR for events related to this sourcebook and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (which is referenced on pages 5 and 98 of Dragon Heist).
