Barze was an ancient, now-fallen kingdom neighboring what is now Vaasa.[1] It was located between what would eventually be known as the West Galena Mountains and the Vercy Wood.[2]

HistoryEdit

Barze was founded by the Netherese arcanist Barze in -456 DR. The previous year (-457 DR, the Year of the Sycophant), he had traveled with his followers from Netheril, fleeing persecution. He named his new nation after himself.[2]

The Kingdom of Barze lasted from -456 DR to -357 DR.[3] It fell after the "sorcerer-king" Barze was assassinated by "one hailed as a hero."[2] This "hero" seems to have been one of the Dark Three who helped defeat Maram of the Great Spear, Bhaal.[4]

Shortly after Barze's death, the kingdom was conquered by the Twisted Ones and their ruler, the general Tyranthraxus.[2] Tyranthraxus ruled cruelly, laying waste to the land and slaying the remaining princes of Barze and the lands of Horreb and the Vane to the south, until he was imprisoned in a vial of shining water and sunk beneath Lake Longreach.[5]
