Dyrik is sparsely dotted with the ruins of a civilization that existed long before settlers from Faerun arrived. Fyrtear is one such ruin.
Fyrtear is the ruin of a city. While the people of Dyrik regard all of these ancient ruins with fear and claim they are haunted, this has not stopped the study of the Fyrtear ruins over the years, and the entire ruin has been combed over by scholars hoping to learn about the people who built it. While little has been gleaned by these studies, it is clear that whatever civilization built Fyrtear was great and prosperous – before it was laid low by some unknown disaster.
