The Bloody Tempest
As a pointed note, this world takes big strides away from canon Forgotten Realms. My Abeir-Toril and book Abeir-Toril are not one and the same.
Here’s where some of the differences lie.
-10972 An Avariel by the name of Draven Blackhart is born in what later became Cormyr. Shortly therafter, his brother, Tanis Blackhart, is born.
-10916 Lilandra Silverheart is born in Lilanthria, which is still undiscovered by the outside world.
-10100 Draven Blackhart founds Cormyr, choosing Suzail as it’s captial. He makes the land open to all races that might come, believing diplomatic relations with elves, humans and dwarves alike to be critical to the survival of his country.
-7400 Draven Blackhart is overcome with wanderlust, and leaves Cormyr in the care of a family of stewards, the Crownsilvers. Tanis accompanies him, and his daughter, Aelith, departs as well, vanishing to the east. She has changed her name dozens of times since her departure from Cormyr, so her whereabouts remain unknown.
-7060 Draven Blackhart discovers Lilanthria, and is immediately enamored by the nymphs there.
-7011 Tanis, jealous of Draven due to his relationship with Lilandra, departs Lilanthria in a rage.
Vindora and Liana Blackhart are born.
-7003 Tanis leads a contingent of drow high casters and potent warriors to Lilanthria, and Lilanthria is destroyed. Lilandra slays Tanis and binds him to his signet amulet, but is gravely wounded in the process and dies. Draven Blackhart and the rest of the nymphs are slain attempting to defend the young or escape, and Vindora is the only survivor. She is taken into the underdark.
-6994 Vindora Blackhart escapes the Underdark, and something terrible happens to her at the hands of her traveling companion.
Vindora finds her way to Cormyr, and, seeking shelter, crawls through a window in Damian Morthanos’ home. Immediately taken with her, Damian cares for her, unaware of her identity.
-6815 Damian takes Vindora to a Winter fete in the castle, and she is accosted by the other guests. She draws the Kingsblade to defend herself, and is clearly identified as a child of Draven. Enraged, the steward makes an effort on her life and is imprisoned.
-6814 Vindora Blackhart assumes the throne of Cormyr.
-6800 Neighboring areas attack Cormyr, hoping to claim the land from the young queen, starting the First Cormyrian War. Cormyr wins a decisive victory after 40 years of war. Cormyr begins to expand as more efforts of conquest by neighbors meet with utter failure. The road that leads from Arabel to the castle in Suzail is named The Veridian Strip, and Vindora promises the people of Cormyr that no enemies will ever set foot on the Veridian Strip.
-6550 Damian Morthanos is knighted in Cormyr.
-6019 Vindora Blackhart, heavy with child, travels to the north of Cormyr for peace talks with northern settlements, and Damian Morthanos, now captain of the Royal Guard leaves her side, allowing drow mercenaries kidnap her, taking her to the Underdark once again for purposes unknown. She is kept near death, and the child, Shiagra Blackhart, is cut from her womb, and sold to a human.
Damian rescues Vindora, who demands he search for their lost child.

-3145 Ioulaum led a major battle with thousands spellcasters and warriors against the orcs in the Rampart Peaks. The orcs retreated and on the field lay 118000 corpses, 10000 of whom were orcs. Ioulaum, not satisfied, wanted to find where the orcs are stationed. After years of scouting, tracking and scrying the major habitats of orcs was found in the knolls surrounding the Canton River. With more than 50000 troops, Ioulaum began a war called “Excursion into Extinction” that lasted 16 months. He sacrificed 32000 troops, but killed 140000 orcs!
