Military[edit | edit source]
Prior to 1385 DR, Ormpetarr was home to the bulk of Sespech's military. 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.
Government[edit | edit source]
Ormpetarr was ruled by Baron Thuragar Foesmasher. 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.
History[edit | edit source]
By 1396 DR much of the city is full of half-collapsed and abandoned buildings. 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.
