Where to find

Text

Elminster said Nhalloth was a wonder to behold when it floated in Faerûn's sky. He was surely right. This Netherese enclave was once a jewel in the Empire of Magic, with towers that pierced the heavens. And yet it fell, just as all Netherese enclaves did, crashing down when Karsus' Folly ripped magic from the world. But even after it collapsed into the sea, its ruins still held a strange, twisted beauty.


I travelled here from Halruaa when I heard the sea had retreated and the ruins of Nhalloth were visible once again. Alas, I was not the first. Looters have stripped the enclave of its material wealth, destroying much of its esoteric riches in the process. I've found arcane books used to make campfires, their magic lost now to the ages.


I have met some Shadovar here whose interests align with mine, and we have agreed to search the ruins together. I'm grateful for these allies. The ruins are mostly filled with thick-skulled adventurers, but I cannot shake the feeling that someone is watching us, waiting to see what we uncover.

Notes

  • Shadovar are a group of netherese people who survived Karsus' Folly because their flying city Thultanthar was in the Shadowfell at that time. Long exposure to the Plane of Shadows changed them as most of them became shades.
