−339 DR in deities

  • Karsus's Folly: Karsus seizes Mystryl's powers through the casting of Karsus's Avatar, but they are too great for him to control and the Weave fails, causing Netheril's floating cities to fall to the ground. Mystryl sacrifices herself to save the Weave. She instantly reincarnates as Mystra and changes the rules for magic users (see Mystra's Ban). She was fast enough to save the cities Anauria, Asram, and Hlondath; the rest of the Netheril's cities were lost or destroyed.[1][2]
  • Momentarily a god, Karsus' body falls to the east of the High Forest.[2]


−339 DR in conflicts


−339 DR in environment

  • Harborage is destroyed when the phaerimm create a volcanic rift just outside the city walls. Thankfully, the inhabitants are saved by their cloud giant neighbours.[4]
  • The effects of the fall of Netheril are felt far and wide. The magical backlash from the death of Karsus causes magically supported structures in Calimport to fall, and the entire magically supported ceiling of the Sargauth Enclave collapses, covering two-thirds of the city. The surviving Netherese arcanists are transformed into the Skulls of Skullport.[2]
  • When the magic keeping Nyanza Lake warm ceases to function, it freezes over, killing all life within in the space of nine months.[5]
  • A large whirlpool arises, leading from the surface of the Inner Sea down to the mythal in Myth Nantar. This causes many ships to be lost and destroys many buildings in Serôs.[2]
  • The Netherese cities of Nhalloth and Sakkors plunge into the Inner Sea and are drowned.[1][2]


Migrations in −339 DR


−339 DR in politics

  • Civil unrest reaches its highest levels across Low Netheril.[11][2]
  • Anauria, Asram, and Hlondath become survivor states of Netheril.[2]


−339 DR in people


Miscellaneous

  • The Temple of Time in Trinity ceases to shine and the city is bathed in darkness as an eclipse seems to darken the sun overhead. A few note that it is exactly a century since the temple began to glow but most are more concerned with evacuating the city.[12]
  • The spelljamming dock of Yeoman's Loft explodes, destroying all ships currently moored there.[10]
