The Tides of Shadow
Netheril is an ancient city, famed for its wizards who mastered powerful magics during the very first days of Human existence on Toril. Eventually a mighty wizard destroyed most of the city after attempting to cast a ritual to elevate himself to Godhood. In order to save the city, it was decided by a circle of powerful mages that they would transport the city to Abeir, and so the city was lost for centuries. In it’s absence the Anauroch Desert was formed. Thought to have been lost forever, Netheril recently returned after the Spellplague ravaged the planet, and now city is filled with powerful Shades and shadowy beings from the Shadowfell.
