Citadel Felbarr was located at the base of the Rauvin Mountains along the River Redrun, with Silverymoon Pass to the south and Sundabar Vale to the east. A trade route connected Felbarr to Sundabar to the southeast and Beorunna's Well to the northwest beyond the Cold Wood.[4]

Citadel Felbarr had tunnels in the Upper Underdark that connected it to Mithral Hall in the west.[5]

HistoryEdit

The humans of Silverymoon quickly took advantage of this masive citadel and garrisoned it with over 3,000 troops[2] However after a battle lasting many months the citadel was captured in 1104 DR by orcs and renamed Citadel of Many Arrows.[6] It was recaptured by a force of Dwarves in 1367 DR.
