A Friend in Need
Phalorm (known as the Realm of Three Crowns) was an ancient kingdom in Northwest Faerûn made up of dwarves, elves, gnomes, halflings and humans. Formed during the Council of Axe and Arrow in the year 523 DR, Phalorm grew quickly in power. The combined resources of humans, dwarves, and elves were formidable, and together they crafted great wonders such as the Deep Road and the Spellforge, as well as impressive castles, like the fortresses of Moorguard and Northwatch.
Sadly, the glory of Phalorm was short-lived. The theories of why it collapsed are many and varied, though the attack of a huge goblinoid horde (the Horde of the Wastes) in 615 DR played a significant role. The fall of Phalorm is known as the Breaking of the Three Crowns.
