Djerad Thymar (the Fortress of Thymara[5], in Draconic) was the capital city of Tymanther.[3]

HistoryEdit

Djerad Thymar was constructed as one the most important of the djeradi ("clanholds", in Draconic) of the Abeiran nation of Tymanchebar, nearly two centuries before the Spellplague, though at the time it was called by another name.[5] It was specially built to hold off dragon attacks, and eventually it became the capital clanhold of Tymanchebar.[1][2] After the Spellplague transported Tymanchebar to Faerûn, only two of the djeradi were left mostly functional, Djerad Thymar and Djerad Kethendi.[5]

The ruins of Djerad Thymar fell on top of the tomb of a bearded warrior.[6] The goddess Selûne guided one of the surviving dragonborn, Thymara, to the ruins and gave her the warrior's weapon, The Black Axe of the Moon's Champion, to help her to find other surviving dragonborn. The survivors, guided by Thymara, reunited in the ruined djeradi and reconstructed it, calling it Djerad Thymar in honor of their savior.[7] The dragonborn then founded the realm of Tymanther with Djerad Thymar as their capital city.[8]

StructureEdit

The city was unique in its design as the entire city was one giant hollow pyramid. The pyramid rested on a granite foundation supported by a huge number of columns. The top of the pyramid reached 1,500 feet (460 meters) into the sky.[3]

InteriorEdit

Inside the pyramid there were balconies leading to individual dwellings. The interior of the pyramid was lit by magical lights.[9][3]

Notable LocationsEdit

  • Catacombs: The lowest level served as a storage area for military equipment as well as the final resting place of the city's residents.[3]
  • Market Floor: The city's main market, which doubled as a festhall.[3]
  • City Bastion: The highest level and the residential section of the city. Above the City Bastion was the open-air platform called the Lance Barracks, which served as the headquarters of the Lance Defenders.[3]
