Iniarv's Tower was a ruined tower near the Mere of Dead Men that belonged to the lich Iniarv.[2]

GeographyEdit

Iniarv's Tower was on the eastern side of the High Road, but it was often considered part of the Mere of Dead Men.[3][4] The Uthtower was 60 miles (97 kilometers) west of Iniarv's Tower.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Iniarv's Tower was described as a ruined fortress.[5] Underneath the tower was a crypt of unknown size.[2]

DefensesEdit

Trespassers to the tower triggered a spell known Iniarv's unseen voice, which projected a simulated voice of the tower's original owners. If the black dragon Waervaerendor (thought to be Voaraghamanthar) was present, he would copy the lich's voice to scare intruders.[2]

HistoryEdit

Iniarv's Tower originally belonged to Iniarv, the Mage Royal of Uthtower. He used the tower as his base and from there released a number of magical beasts and experimental monsters into the wild. Prior to 614 DR, Iniarv had mysteriously disappeared. In reality, he had become a lich and retreated to the tower's crypts, not to be seen in public until the forces of Phalorm chose the tower as a defensive spot in their fight against the orc invasion of 615 DR. The fighting enraged Iniarv and he emerged from his tower and called on the ocean to flood the land, turning it into the swamp known as the Mere of Dead Men.[2]

After Iniarv's Tower was abandoned, it fell into ruins and was at various times occupied by bandits, fugitives, orcs, and others.[1] Around 1370 DR, a group of Helmites from Waterdeep, led by Sir Justin Melenikus, chased bandits from the tower and began using it as their own base. The Helmites actively recruited adventurers to help them slay the monsters and bandits of the Mere.[5] The Helmites were there only a short time, as the black dragons Voaraghamanthar and Waervaerendor captured them around 1372 DR.[2]
