History of the Nentir Vale

Postby Zeromaru X » Sun Sep 18, 2016 3:08 am

MODERATOR NOTE (by Big Mac): Split from the: A Nentir Vale Gazetteer topic.

Here is the first "Gazetteer". It contains only history. I separate it from the "player Gazetteer" because there 99 pages of just history :/ Enjoy.

This is amazing! 99 pages? Where did this come from? It's magic!

Almost all is from dragon and dungeon magazines, although some assorted books were used as well. I had to do a lot of reading xD

I've been very impressed with your expert job of combining all of these sources into coherent documents. Nice work!

After I finished reading all the novels, I've done an important update to the history document. There it is:

You were already on my "I would buy this person a drink" list, for making this, so I'll have to add you onto my "...plus a packet of crisps or peanuts" list. ;)

This is a major must have for anyone interested in Nentir Vale and Nerath! :cool:

I wonder if Argentmantle would be able to help with this, like he did with the Hollow World: Kogolor Fan Guide.

I've made another important update to the history document (I'm tempted to call it the Grand History of the Nentir Vale, xD). Mostly about the creation age and the Dawn War, but there are also a few updates and new entries here and there. Here is the link:

I'm tempted to create a document focusing only in the Dawn War, as well. Some sort of mythic story, maybe a treatise of how current sages and priest narrate the war.

Found a reference to Planescape in Draconomicon Metallic Dragons. It seems that after the events of Die! Vecna, Die!, a few metallic dragons formed a society of portal keepers to avoid something like Vecna did in the future.

Also, updated with the story of Glasya (Asmodeus' daughter and current Lady of the Six).

A small update with the full story of Io's death and the arrow of fate and his dragonborn "fragment".
