Cormyr

Cormyr is an ancient yet vigorous kingdom that lies at the western end of the Sea of Fallen Stars. The landscape is dominated by old forests. Humans make up the predominate race of the kingdom, and they are justly proud of their country’s long and noble traditions.

The Threat of Shadraxil
In it’s early centuries, as Cormyr extended its power, the nation built fortresses along its frontier, including in the Thunder Peaks. This proved to be unwise, as at the time, the Thunder Peaks were the home of the great shadow wyrm, Shadraxil. In the year 236 DR, the great wyrm began attacking Cormyr’s outposts. In responce, Cormyr sent a contingent of brave soldiers led by the knight Jerold Keegan. Sir Keegan devised a plan to lure the beast into an arcane trap deep within a keep, where Cormyr’s War Wizards managed to bind the wyrm in a prison within the Plane of Shadow.

However, that was not the end of Shadraxil. Even from his prison, the wyrm was able to use it’s power to drive Sir Keegan into a state of paranoia, where he believed that his friends and family were conspiring against him. Eventually, the knight went insane, going from room to room of the keep and slaying all he came across. Fearing that Shadraxil might continue to wreak havoc upon those stationed at the keep, Cormyr’s leaders ordered the place destroyed and it’s secrets hidden. They slew a juvenile shadow dragon and created a false burial ground, all in the effort to hide the fact that Shadraxil lives.
