Mount Sar was a mountain peak in the Sword Mountains, the second most southern in the entire range.[2]

Geography[]

The mountain located north of Waterdeep between the Long Road and the High Road. Along with Mount Helimbrar and Mount Waterdeep, it protected the city against the harsh winds from the North.[1]

Description[]

The peak was linked to Blackstaff Tower by a large-sized two-way keyed portal.[3]

History[]

This mountain was named for a great fomorian that used to live in it, until they were slain by the early warlords of Waterdeep.[1][2][4]

In the Year of Lathander's Light, 1024 DR, the mountain village of Hespheira was removed from Mount Sar in Faerûn and somehow transported to the Plane of Shadow.[2]

Notable Locations[]

  • Hespheira, a minor settlement that experienced great tumult and tragedy.[2]

Inhabitants[]

Mount Sar was inhabited by stone giants and sylphs.[1] A cave in the mountain was also home to the frost giant Harshnag the Grim. It was returned to the mountain over a century later, infested by shadow creatures.[3]

Gulyaikin Dzrund, "The Mad Dwarf", lived in a series of caves high up on the mountain. He was known for attacking passersby with rocks either rolled down the mountain or catapulted at ships at sea. Rumors were that he had a vast treasure hidden away. [5]
