Great Bhaerynden was a domain located in the south-central region of Faerûn beneath the vast plains of Shaar.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

This Underdark region was the first homeland of the dwarves, but was conquered by the drow when they first ventured in the Underdark in search of a realm of their own. The drow called their new home Telantiwar, but this kingdom didn't last.[1] For reasons that are still unknown, the domed ceilings of the enormous vaults in which Telantiwar was established collapsed down on the kingdom during civil war around −7600 DR.[citation needed] Many of the drow were crushed beneath rocks and rubble from the rock layer above. This great collapse laid ruin to many of the drow cities of Telantiwar, and created the Great Rift.[citation needed]

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

Gold dwarves live in the Great Rift and a lot of the adjoining caves.[2] Drow and half-drow held the city of T'lindhet[3], and halflings lived in Deepburrow in Great Bhaerynden.[4]
