City of Splendors & Horrors
Toril is the world that hosts the storied continent of Faerûn. Bitter winds sweep the steppes of the Endless Wastes, storm waves crash against the cliffs of the Sword Coast, and in between stretches a vast land of shining kingdoms and primal wilderness. The mysteries, secrets, and stories of Faerûn are virtually limitless.
Abeir is the realm forgotten. A twin to Toril and once joined with it, Abeir went its own way at the dawn of the world. Where gods and their servants oversee Faerûn, the lords of Abeir were towering primordials and elder wyrms, and savagery ruled with them. Now, after long epochs of separation, Abeir has joined with Toril once again, in a return both violent and unlooked-for.
Returned Abeir is the name the natives of Toril have given the large, horseshoe-shaped landmass, known to its inhabitants as Laerakond, that appeared during the Spellplague. Located west of the Trackless Sea, it appears to have replaced Maztica. The jaunt between world disrupted the tyrannical dragon overlords who had ruled the land since the separation of Abeir and Toril. Now, for the first time, the human and dragonborn kingdoms there have gained a sliver of independence.
