Prior to the Spellplague, Ormpetarr was the capital city of Sespech.[2] After the Spellplague struck, the city became a center for scar pilgrimages.[3]

Features[edit | edit source]

The city was filled with ancient brass spires, famed for their ability to reflect the setting sun like flame. As of 1396 DR many of the brass spires lay broken and strewn down the rocky side of a cliff.[4]

Ormpetarr and surrounding environs in 1479 DR

*The border of the Plaguewrought Land runs through the center of town and appears as an eye-watering cloud of color.[4][3]

  • Tyrangal's Mansion - This large mansion belonging to the copper dragon Tyrangal sits by itself, surrounded by collapsed buildings. It's heavily warded against intruders.[3]
  • Changing House - This sturdy structure is the headquarters of the Order of Blue Flame in Ormpetarr.
  • Monastery of Kelemvor - Construction on this monastery was begun in 1478 DR and is nearly complete as of 1479 DR. The priests of Kelemvor minister to pilgrims undertaking their scar pilgrimage, most of whom die during the experience.[3]
  • Jewel - This festhall is used primarily as a brothel. It's described as smelling of stale beer and urine. It's most famous employee is Moirah who has a spellscar below her navel.[3]

Economy[edit | edit source]

Ormpetarr was a banking center and handled all trade on the Golden Road.[2]

Military[edit | edit source]

Prior to 1385 DR, Ormpetarr was home to the bulk of Sespech's military.[2] In 1479 DR there are several militias in town. The Order of Blue Flame has a militia known as the Peacekeepers and Tyrangal has soldiers known as the Copper Guard. The monastery of Kelemvor just to the south of the city also maintains a fighting force of monks and clerics.[3]

Government[edit | edit source]

Ormpetarr was ruled by Baron Thuragar Foesmasher.[2] In 1479 DR there is no official government but power is shared uneasily by the Order of Blue Flame, forces loyal to the Tyrangal and the huge monastery of Kelemvor just outside of town.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

By 1396 DR much of the city is full of half-collapsed and abandoned buildings.[5] When the border of the Plaguewrought Lands stabilized in the center of Ormpetarr the city became a center for scar pilgrimages inspired by Madruen Morganoug accidentally becoming spellscarred with skin aglow in blue fire. His skin absorbed the Spellplague flames making it almost impervious to swords and daggers. According to the locals, the success rate for the pilgrims looking to get spellscarred was one out of every ten who survive in the first place.[6]
