The rise of Zelegith
Sundering of Neverdusk
The Sundering of Neverdusk is the single most powerful display of Zelegith’s destruction and arcane magic in recorded time. During his first assault on Neverdusk he sent evil men, drow, and other evil races against the great city. He also made use of his latest allegiance, that being the black dragon flight. Hating all goodly dragons and races the black dragon flight was not hard to convert to Zelegith’s cause. The exile of the evil flight as it is called by the general populace really made the black dragon flight hate everything that helped in their downfall from being among the most populous and powerful dragons in Dorlonthir. During the assault on Neverdusk a party of 4 adventurers held of a good portion of the ground forces, which were really fodder and a distraction from the great black cloud growing in the sky, when the mages of the arcane guild realized what it was, hundreds of black dragons came into view and on the largest one of them sat Zelegith. After a very climactic and hard fought battle, the defenders of Neverdusk managed to push back Zelegith’s forces. In a last ditch effort he started to conjure a spell that would surely destroy the entire city.
“The world will know what it means to defy me!” Zelegith yelled as he was casting the spell. Meanwhile in the temple of Bahamut, his most faithful paladins and clerics were praying/summoning an avatar of Bahamut to assist them in the battle. At the last moment right as Zelegith was finished casting, the avatar of Bahamut came into being, and interupted his spell casting. In a hurry Zelegith released his spell, but it was not at full power. It destroyed about half of the city and tore a hole in the world that was so deep that if you flew down you would be crushed by the immense pressure near the core of the world.
As Zelegith retreated, the aspect and all the mages of the arcane guild started to cast a great wall spell that would block the hole in the earth. They were able to meld the spell so that it would feel like regular ground, but unable to make it look like it. So to this day this giant scar is there, while the city rebuilt what it lost on that spot, it is an odd site for most visitors to see houses, roads and other building stand on top of “nothing”
