Hey @TheEdVerse. Huge fan and follower of your #Realmslore. Question about Evermeet that one of my players has: On the Wikipedia (only source I can find on the internet), it says it was established -17,600 DR. Is this true, and if so why? Feel better soon!

Thank you; sure hope I do!
It’s true. See page 11 of THE GRAND HISTORY OF THE REALMS. Why was it created, or why then? Why created: The elves wanted a refuge, seeing the tumult on the mainland and the rise in numbers of humans and goblinkin (orcs, et al) pushing. 2)
…them out. Why then? The First Sundering happened then, and drove home to the elves how much this 'solid' natural world around them, that they were so bound to, could be swept away "just like that." They had to act NOW.#Realmslore
