The Fallen Boughs of Cormanthor
Not to be confused with the forest from which it gets its name, fallen Cormanthyr was an ancient elven empire that housed one of the most legendary cities of Faerun: Myth Drannor, City of Love and Song. The empire is now long dead, but many of its treasures remain. At their height, Cormanthyr and Myth Drannor produced several enchanted items of considerable beauty and power, including the fabled Ruling Elf-blades, three swords capable of increasing their wielders’ existing powers considerably.
Unfortunately, the treasures of fabled Cormanthyr attract many looters who know that adventurers, magicians and even some governments would pay dearly for powerful elven artefacts. Guardians of this fallen empire yet remain, keeping watch so that such items do not fall into evil hands.
