The fall, yes it´s true that the Passing of the Coronal(the leader)Eltargrim makes the beginning of the End, but was the Murder(unresolved) of his heir and last of the line, his nice Aravae that starts the Problems that make city Fall. The Title of Coronal is given by drawing a Elfblade called Ar´Cor´Kerym (Ruler´s blade in elvish) so a sucersor must be chosen but no Elf could draw the blade that like Moonblade Kills the unworthy. afther the death of many Elves some of the non elf who lived at the city made their way to the Rule Tower were the Blade was, they were stoped at the entrace by the Elves. they tried to force they way up the tower but someone Cast a mighty spell destoying the tower and all inside. The blade and High Mages were untoched by the spell and hover above were the tower once stood,but the damage was made the distrust among races was now fully shown.
The High Court Mage, the Srinshee them seeing that none had provend worth, Drew the blade herself, but even before she put her hand on the Hilt, mighty spells were cast at her to prevent her of beconing Coronal, but she did draw the blade, but seeing what Myth Drannor was becoming she insted sayed that wend the people have proven their worth she would return then she, the blade and high mage vanish.
It was that events that prevented Muth Drannor from realizing the treat that the Army of Darkness was.
The army of Darkness was lead by a trio of nycaloths who have been imprisiond by the Elves in a Prison Above Myth Drammor. that trio had been summoned long ago by a Netherese archwizard looking for some of the nether scrolls who had been stolen long by the elves. The prison was invisible to all and prevented the trio from escape but like all prisons it had a key. the only key to freeing the trio was when a "Red Dragon that never knew malice or greed in its heart flies over the Coronal´s throne". a mage of the name of Saeval Ammath had procured a dragon´s Egg and used magic to change it´s nature, the dragon was a Red in apreance but he possed the Heart of a Gold dragon, the Drangon name was Garnet and he and the Mage became good friends.One night the dragon flew over Nyth Drannor alowing the trio to escape, them afther 1800 years seeing the city grew and prosper they only had a purpose. To destroy Myth Drannor they raise a army of orcs,giants, and other evil creatures, sommuned creatres of the lower planes and they move in to Cormanthor destroying all in their path.
The war lasted betwen 711 and 714, it costed the lives of the first Harpers and the elf (lady steel) that created they(they badge[even today] was her house Insignia), a chosen of Mystra (Symrustar Auglamyr), many elven villages, the city it self, and many more...
One of the last battle was betwen the last of the nycaloths and Captain Fflar, a unknown, even today, hero that lead the defendors of the city during it´s last days, were both vanished.Even whit the death of nycaloths the Army did not stop, the last suvivers left the city.
This is a very short desciption of the fall there is a lot more that happed
