The Sword Coast North was a region on the northwestern coast of Faerûn. While it comprised a rough landscape of rugged hills, precarious mountain ranges and dense forests, it was home to several like-minded towns and cities. The most prominent of these cities banded together with nearby allies to form the Lords' Alliance,[1][3] which united much of the region well into the late 15th century DR.[4]

GeographyEdit

The region stretched from Waterdeep[5] in the south to the Spine of the World in the north, and from the Sword Coast in the west to the Long Road in the east.[1]

  • Dessarin Valley: Encompassing the lands just east of the Long Road, the valley was home to many farms, villages, and towns;[24] some of which referred to themselves as "the Gateway to the North".[25]

HistoryEdit

The first great realm to appear in the region known as the Sword Coast North was that of Illefarn. The kingdom of Illefarn was a contemporary of Netheril, consisting of both dwarves and elves. Illefarn survived the Fall of Netheril, until the elves left for Evermeet. Northlanders and other humans began migrating into the region a few years before the Year of Sunrise, 1 DR.[26]
