The First Dragonspear War was an armed conflict between the allied armies of Baldur's Gate and Waterdeep, and the devils that dwelled within Dragonspear Castle.[1][2]


The war took place in the region of the Sword Coast surrounding Dragonspear Castle, as well as within the fortress itself.[3]


On Hammer 1, in the Year of the Worm, 1356 DR, a Waterdhavian patrol passing through the Open Marches was assaulted by a group of devils and goblinoids.[3] The portal that Ithtaerus Casalia once created beneath Dragonspear Castle was open once more.[4]

The city-state's soldiers tracked the monstrous assailants back to Dragonspear Castle and set fire to the ancient ruin. The devils were not beat however, as their ranks continued to swell for months.[3]

After some time the Waterdhavian troops were joined by the Flaming Fist from Baldur's Gate, and the combined forces were able to defeat the remaining fiends.[1]


In the years that followed, a significant number of tieflings appeared in the lands surrounding the castle.[4]
