Call of Madness
This is a brief history of what happened in the campaign. The left year is in forgotten realms reckoning and the right is in Ebberon time. Feel free to edit for grammar and point out the massive plot holes that I overlooked.

1381/1007YK Eberron: The world of eberron is pulled through the portal Faerun: A huge celestial body appears in the sky’s above Toril. The backlash of this event causes massive earthquakes in toril.

They exploded into formless divine energy when Eberron emerged in the night sky and though people could continue to draw power from this energy the deities themselves no longer have sentience. Barachiel also revealed that they lost all contact with the material planes some years ago. During the silence the demons spured on by some unknown power escaped the abyss and began laying siege to the other planes. The demons were aided by beings no one had ever seen (the daelkyr) .
