The oldest parts of Castle Never date back to the time of Halueth Never, some 1,500 years ago, but many of Neverwinter’s rulers, most notably Nasher Alagondar himself, have expanded and refortified the castle over the centuries. Today, however, it is a deserted ruin. The eruption of Mount Hotenow in the Year of Knowledge Unearthed (419 NR, 1451 DR) toppled towers, collapsed walls, and started fires that burned throughout the structure. Adventurers claim that the castle’s ruined halls are haunted by ghosts and claimed by all manner of monsters. Some rumors circulate that several monstrous faction vie for control of the ruins.
