The Plaguewrought Land (also called the Plaguewrought Lands) is the name given to what was once the state of Halruaa and a large area south of Chondalwood that continues, as of 1479 DR, to be wracked by the effects of the Spellplague. Inside this plagueland the ground heaves like waves on the ocean and pieces of land levitate randomly to form earthmotes. The vegetation that grows here is strange and twisted and may sprout, mature and then die in a matter of minutes. Most people who travel into this region are killed very quickly by the wild magic.
Following the Second Sundering, the Plaguewrought Lands were eliminated by Halruaa's return to Toril.
The Plaguewrought Land is approximately 400 miles long by 200 miles in width and covers the area formerly occupied by the Nagawater and the Golden Plains. The city of Ormpetarr is located at the northwestern border and the veil actually splits the old city in two.
