Merrouroboros was a super-continent in existence on the planet Abeir-Toril during the Days of Thunder and before the Sundering of Abeir from Toril.

Geography[edit | edit source]

Merrouroboros was bordered on the west by the Silver Sea and on the south by the Great Blue.[2]

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

The land of Merrouroboros was inhabited by the legendary creator races[1] and the early jotunbrud[2] and human[1] tribes.

History[edit | edit source]

After the creation of the planet Abeir-Toril, that world had a great Ice Age, which ended in approximately −35,000 DR. At this time, the continent of Faerûn did not yet exist; instead, Faerûn was joined with Kara-Tur, Maztica, and Zakhara as part of Merrouroboros.[1]

The sarrukh were the first to establish an empire on Merrouroboros, ruling over most of the land that would later be Faerûn.[1] They were followed by the fey, who established the realm of Faerie around −34,000 DR.[3] Third came the batrachi empires, coming to prominence some 500 years later and peaking around −31,500 DR.[4] Lastly, the aearee empires emerged.[4]

Merrouroboros ceased to exist around −17,600 DR in the great cataclysm known as the First Sundering, which caused the super-continent to break apart into Faerûn, Maztica, and Katashaka, and the appearance of Evermeet.[5][6]
