Sword Coast Adventures
Jewel of the North
Neverwinter is located to the north of Waterdeep. It sits along the edge of the Neverwood, nestled under the shadow of Mount Hotenow. The city is a major stop for trade caravans along the high road, and is often a resupply point so ships heading up the treacherous path to Icewind Dale.
The city is currently still recovering from the effects of the spell plague. Reparations have gone slow over the years, due to numerous delays, including Lord Neverember splitting his focus between Neverwinter and Waterdeep's political playing fields. His rule of Neverwinter became his primary focus in 1489 DR, when he was exiled from Waterdeep. From that point on, he has dedicated focus to rebuilding, and reestablishing order in the city's walled borders.
