- The schism in House Moonstar is now fully open, with members who worship Shar based in Moonstar Villa, while those still worshiping Selûne allying with Lord Vanrak's sister Lady Alathene Moonstar and the High House of Stars. Vanrak, his followers, a small army of mercenaries, and some Sharran priests take over much of Waterdeep's harbor.
- On the night of the 7th full moon of the year, Alathene brings evidence to the courts of her brother committing arson, theft, murder, and slavery. She asks that he be stripped of his title and banished. The Lords of Waterdeep order Vanrak's immediate capture, but by the time the Watch breach the gates of Moonstar Villa, he and his followers have disappeared through a secret portal into Undermountain.
