Dhalmass Obarskyr, known as the Warrior King, was a king of Cormyr from 1210 DR to 1227 DR. He was the sole heir of Pryntaler Obarskyr and the father of Palaghard II. He was remembered in history for reconquering Marsember.[2][4][1]


Dhalmass was a towering figure—about 6.5 feet (2 meters), give or take—with broad shoulders and a muscular build. He wore his white-blond hair long, with a huge beard and bushy eyebrows. He had cold blue eyes that flared when he was angry and a large, aquiline nose. His voice was deep and could be heard a great distance even over the clashing of a battlefield.[3]


Dhalmass was enormously strong and was able to move his huge frame extremely fast.[3]


He was the son and sole heir of King Pryntaler. Dhalmass was the husband of Queen Jhalass Huntsilver. They had four children: Proster (born 1213 DR, died 1222 DR, aged 9), Palaghard (born 1214 DR), Elliira (born 1218 DR), and Pelara (born 1220 DR).[5][4]


Dhalmass became king in the Year of the Crimson Crag, 1211 DR after the death of his father the in the previous year.[1][note 1]

One of his famous deeds was leading a company of mounted knights and soldiers against a horde of orcs that outnumbered his forces ten-to-one. He accomplished this by constantly keeping his band on the move, switching horses at every castle he could, and picking off orc patrols and marauding mobs whenever they were encountered.[3]

In the Year of Green Wings, 1216 DR, he executed the last noble of the Goldfeather family for treason.[1]

After the port city of Marsember rebelled, King Dhalmass seized it back in the Year of the Wall, 1227 DR.[4][1] However, just after the reconquest, Dhalmass and his wife Jhalass were both killed in mysterious circumstances when their caravan back to Suzail was ambushed. Assassins from the Fire Knives were blamed for the death of the king and queen, and the organization banished from the kingdom.[6][2][1]

He was succeeded by his second son, Palaghard II.[4]



  1. There is a discrepancy in the date that Dhalmass became king. The table on page 77 of The Grand History of the Realms says it was 1210 DR, but on page 125 it says 1211 DR. The original Forgotten Realms Campaign Set states on page 34 of the Cyclopedia of the Realms that Dhalmass began his reign in the year following the death of King Pryntaler, so this wiki assumes that the table in The Grand History is incorrect.
