Neverwinter: The Year of Deep Water Drifting
Legends say this this high-floating earthmote served as an unassailable harbour for sky pirates in the years following the Spellplague. Because the mote floats a hundred feet up and could be accessed by a direct path from lands, the pirates supposedly stored all manner of treasure there, also as safe storage for wealthy or well-connected residents of the city.
Then, the story takes a dark turn. All the pirates died in one night of blood and betrayal, leaving their treasure and their skyship on the mote – along with whatever slew them. Some people believe that a dragon has calimed the pirates’ loot as its hoard, taking the earthmote as its lair because the city below lacks the means to interfere.
Regardless of the story’s truth, one thing is true – Pirates’ Skyhold has long been abandoned. From the right locations in Neverwinter, one can see rotting wooden buildings poking out of the forests of the mote, but whatever still exists up there has seen little intrusion in the decades.
Of late, however, a small but significant change has taken place. One of the few standing towers on the seaside must have once been a lighthouse and it has started to shine again. Many folk of Neverwinter wonder what this means.
