In 1451 DR, a Thayan plot to create a dread ring in Neverwinter Wood resulted in the release of the fire primordial who had been enslaved in ancient times by the dwarves of Gauntlgrym to power their forge. The primordial’s awakening resulted in the explosion of Mount Hotenow which unleashed a pyroclastic flow that left Neverwinter in ruins. By 1461 DR, some settlers had returned to Neverwinter in an attempt to re-establish the city. Work on New Neverwinter started by building a new town around the ruins of the old city, however the dead constantly threatened the rebuilding work.
