Swamps & Marshes


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 1 DR.[5]


  • Neverwinter: Also known as the City of Skilled Hands and the Jewel of the North, Neverwinter was a multi-racial city-state. It was slowly being restored as a center of civilization in the Sword Coast North after the eruption of Mount Hotenow.
  • Waterdeep: Also known as the City of Splendors and the Crown of the North, it was the most important and influential city in the North and perhaps in all Faerûn.
