The Tides of Shadow
The Obarskyr dynasty has ruled Cormyr for over 1,300 years. Foril, the son of Azoun V, is the current king.
King Foril: About seventy years of age, Foril Obarskyr has ruled for the last thirty years. He’s not the old lion that Azoun IV was, nor a great lawmaker like his father Azoun V, but he is a great strategist, statesman, and administrator. In his youth, he trained with the War Wizards and the Purple Dragons. Now he leaves the fighting to others, understanding that he is too important to his country to act recklessly. Foril is also well aware that he is reaching the end of his reign.
Crown Prince Irvel: Foril’s son, Irvel Obarskyr, shows a lot of the old boldness of his famed ancestors, which could portend interesting times for the country.
Erzoured Obarskyr: Foril’s nephew is a black-hearted schemer who wants the throne so badly he can taste it. He plans to do away with Irvel so he can be named the new crown prince. To that end, he has made several secret contacts in Sembia, Netheril, and even Thay.
