Nightstone was a fortified settlement located near the Ardeep Forest, in the hills between Waterdeep and Daggerford. It was connected to the High Road via a side trail.[1]

GeographyEdit

Nightstone was located a few miles south of the Ardeep Forest.[1] It was built on the Ardeep River and consisted of a fenced island connected to an artificial motte that held the village's keep. Its name derived from a mysterious obsidian obelisk in the center of the village that had strange glyphs carved into it and emanated a magic aura.[2]

HistoryEdit

Over the years, the villagers of Nightstone had bad relationships with the wood elves who inhabited the Ardeep Forest due to Lord Drezlin Nandar's hunting. This eventually culminated in an attack on the village, wherein Lord Drezlin and half of the villagers died. His widow, Velrosa Nandar, negotiated peace with the wood elves and has spent years maintaining that peace.[3]

Sometime after the War of the Silver Marches, the village was bombarded with large rocks by a cloud giant floating castle. Many of the inhabitants were crushed, but those who survived fled north into the nearby Dripping caves outside the village. Once abandoned, the cloud giants descended on Nightstone and stole the village's obelisk, believing it to be an artifact of the ancient Giant civilization of Ostoria. Inside the caves, the villagers encountered a clan of goblins and a pair of ogres, who proceeded to capture them.[4]
