Tymanther.

Tymanther was a displaced section of the Abeirian, dragonborn-ruled state of Tymanchebar.[1]

GovernmentEdit

Tymanther was ruled by the Vanquisher, who ejerced as both a monarch and a general. The fortress-city of Djerad Thymar was the seat of power for a highly militant dragonborn kingdom, struggling to make a name for themselves in the lands of Faerûn. All citizens spend some time in the Lance Defenders, the kingdom's highly trained army, and the population was ever-ready to take up arms again should the city be threatened.[1]

Foreign relationsEdit

Tymanther was misunderstood as a nation and its trading partners were limited. It had good relations with High Imaskar and Chessenta. They held a deep mistrust of the dragon princes of Murghôm, believing they were only a step away from the tyrannical dragon empires of Abeir, and were openly hostile toward Akanûl, owing to a longstanding grudge with the genasi of that land and engaged in brief skirmishes with the land's military forces.[7]

As of 1489 DR, Tymanther was in an open war against the returned nation of Unther, as the god-king Gilgeam was adamant in his ambition to reclaim all of the former lands of Unther.[8]

GeographyEdit

Despite having been ripped from the world of Abeir, Tymanther was a relatively calm region of forests, mountains, and plains. Tymanchebar was literally dropped onto the Unther region, rather than being transposed like Akanûl to the north. The impact resulted in the desolate region known as the Black Ash Plain.[1]

After the Second Sundering, Tymantheran territory was reduced to the lands near the Smoking Mountains and south of the River Alamber.[9]

HistoryEdit

In 1385 DR, during the Spellplague the Abeiran nation of Tymanchebar was dropped onto the region of Unther, whose kingdom in turn was transported to Abeir.[1][8] The dragonborn of Djerad Thymar founded the kingdom of Tymanther in tribute to their lost brethren, and to the kingdom they believed they accidentally destroyed. During the Wailing Years, the dragonborn had to fight to survive in a land full of spellplague-mutated horrors, but they eventually tamed the land and prospered as a nation.[11] Around 1479 DR, Tymanther was making a name for itself with its small elite cadres of soldiers attacking well-known dragon lairs. Some of these troops returned as heroes, and they spread the reputation of Tymanther to the rest of Faerûn.[1] Thymari dragonborn were sought out as skilled mercenaries by other Faerûnian nations.[8]

In 1479 DR, due to the plans of the taaldaraxi of Brimstone's xorvintaal,[12] Tymanther was facing diplomatic problems with Chessenta and Akanûl. Although Tymanther sent an ambassador to try to solve the situation in a pacific manner, negotiations went bad, mostly because dragonborn were also allies of High Imaskar.[13] The situation worsened when a group of abishai disguised as dragonborn began to kill Chessentan citizens. When the killers were discovered by the Brotherhood of the Griffon, the Thymari diplomatic delegation was kicked out of Chessenta, and the relationship between the two nations became delicate.[14]

At the same time, Tymanther had been battling against a coalition of ash giant tribes controlled by the green dragon Skuthosiin (also one of the taaldaraxi)[15], who launched a full scale invasion against the dragonborn nation and were gaining ground in each passing day after they began to use dragonspawn to bolster their numbers.[16][17] The Lance Defenders were unable to stop their attacks, until the outcasts members of the Platinum Cadre lend their aid to the military.[17]

Taking advantage of the momentary victories, Vanquisher Tarhun led all the tymantheran military forces—Lance Defenders, Platinum Cadre, private clan's war bands—in a final, desperate battle against the giants.[18] Although they suffered heavy losses, the Thymari were able to defeat the giant invading forces[19] and, after the dragonborn wizard Biri uncovered Skuthosiin as the true mastermind of the giants,[20] Vanquisher Tarhun ordered another joint military operation, this time to laid siege to Ashhold and to kill Skuthosiin, ending the giant threat to Tymanther.[21] After the Battle of Luthcheq, Tymanther and Chessenta resumed diplomatic relations.[22]

On Nightal 26 of 1486 DR, as part of the Second Sundering, the lands of Unther that had been transported to Abeir by the Spellplague returned to Toril, while at the same time Tymanther was about to be returned to Abeir. The god Enlil returned to Toril the same day and prevented the process to some degree,[23] but the dragonborn nation was reduced to Djerad Thymar, Djerad Kethendi and small holdings along the coast of the Alamber Sea and Ash Lake.[24][8] The Untherite immediately went to war with Tymanther, and tried to regain their former lands, but the dragonborn fiercely defended what little territory they had, triggering the First Tymanther-Unther War.[25] Although the Thymari won that war and expelled the Untherite forces from their territory,[9] Gilgeam never relented from his ambition and, as of 1489 DR, both nations were waging another war.[8]
