Askavar was an ancient elven settlement in the Glimmerwood.[1]


The evil wizard Uldoon used to send fiends from his small realm of Torsil north of the Cloud Peaks to prey upon the elves of Askavar.[2]

Askavar was abandoned sometime in the late 5th century DR, its population leaving for Evermeet and Evereska.[1]


A woman named Illyra, a scholar in giant lore, owned a collection of Askavarian pottery.[3]
