Of all the grand and bustling cities in Northern Faerûn, few rival the splendor of the metropolis that is Neverwinter. From the magical structures of Silverymoon and the sea-worn docks of Luskan to the sprawling streets of Waterdeep, travelers near the northern Sword Coast can visit a variety of towns and cities, all of which have their own unique areas and landmarks to explore.
Only one of these cities is known as the Jewel of the North.
Even in its present stage of rebuilding from the disaster of the Spellplague and the eruption of Mount Hotenow, the shadow of Neverwinter’s past glory falls long upon its neighboring regions. Standing tall within the city is Protector’s Enclave, the seat of power from which Lord Neverember stages his fortification of Neverwinter’s recovering districts. Imposing walls protect the city from orcs in the Tower District, foulspawn in the Chasm, and undead within the Neverdeath Graveyard, all of whom are clamoring to take over the Jewel of the North.
Lord Neverember’s charge to protect the city is no easy task, and is beset by constant attempts to threaten the safety of Neverwinter. Zealous rebels have overrun the Blacklake District, bent on overthrowing the city’s leader. Undead and other unspoken horrors riddle Castle Never, a once-commanding tower that now lies in ruins. Whispers and rumors abound of even greater powers outside of the city that plot and scheme to overwhelm the Jewel of the North, which already lies besieged from within.
The lord of the city needs brave adventurers to help him retake the city, and protect Neverwinter from Nasher rebels, Many-Arrows orcs, undead, kobolds, ogres, plaguechanged, abberants, and worse. The city requires seasoned combatants to venture out into the beleaguered districts to do battle with the monsters that have made Neverwinter their home, and to restore the Jewel of the North to its rightful luster.
Lord Neverember needs adventurers, whether they fight for treasure, for fame, or for the glory of Neverwinter. Are you up for the challenge?
