Ascore in 1374 DR is lonely, windswept ruin on the edge of the Anauroch.[3] In its heyday, in the time of the Netherese Empire, Ascore was a bustling dwarven port city of the nation of Delzoun on the northern shores of the Narrow Sea.[4] Tradegoods from Netheril flowed into Delzoun either via the docks of Ascore or via the Lowroad which connected to Ascore.

Flora & FaunaEdit

The ruins were sometimes infested with pernicon.[1]

Places of InterestEdit

The Docks 

Weird stone ships lay half-buried in the sand.[5]

Pyramids 

Thirteen pyramids surrounded a pool of liquid shadow. It was of interest, though unclear why, to Thultanthar, who sent an expedition there in 1372 DR. While they created only a temporary camp,[6] they remained there since. Nobody knew the pyramids' origins but the material, some kind of red stone, was similar to the bleeding stone of Karse,[5] Karsus' corpse.[7]

The Lost Portal at Hlaungadath 

Ascore was the primary, and official, destination of the portal.[8]

Underdark under Ascore

The Underdark under Ascore was special, because it connected two domains, the Buried Realms and the Northdark.[9]

HistoryEdit

-333 DR 
Human refugees from Netheril are accepted into Ascore.[10]
As the Narrow Sea dries up, the dwarves begin the slow abandonment of Ascore.[10][11]
