Fictional history

Myth Drannor, also called "The City Of Song", was once considered to be the most beautiful and peaceful of any of the cities in Faerûn. At its peak, no city could compare to the glory of Myth Drannor. All races lived in complete harmony for the first time in memory, without fear or corruption. However, the city has been in ruins for many years. The city was once protected by a device called a mythal which is one of the greatest spells in perhaps all of the Realms. The mythal is a protective spell which shields Myth Drannor from outside forces and from general harm.

Cormanthor became known as Myth Drannor after the mythal was raised. It was during this time that Elminster visited the legendary elven city and became an armathor. He also helped create the mythal, alongside the most powerful mages in Myth Drannor and normal citizens giving their strength to the newfound mythal. Coronal Eltargrim, the elected ruler of Cormanthor at the time, decided to open the elven realm to non-elven races in order to halt the slow decay of his civilization and prevent human armies from forcefully entering the city in the future.

Myth Drannor was tragically overrun by the armies of three nycaloths after the nycaloths were inadvertently freed from their prisons in Myth Drannor by a Red Dragon who never knew malice flying over their prison. (The one thing that would set them free as the mages who imprisoned them intoned thousands of years earlier.) The struggle to halt the armies and to save Myth Drannor failed, and is referred to as The Fall.
