Neverwinter, once known as the Jewel of the North, has been torn asunder by the Spellplague. This previously renowned city is now home to thievery, corruption, desolation, and worse, terrible monsters from the rifts left behind by the Spellplague. Though Dagult Neverember, the open lord of Waterdeep, has made claim on Neverwinter, not all have accepted his rule as Protector. Many parties contend for Neverwinter and the inhabitants’ allegiances remain in question. Neverwinter is ripe with adventure, waiting for a new hero to emerge.
