History of Shadowdale—Doust Sulwood Becomes Lord of Shadowdale:

Three winters following his defeat of the evil Lord Jyordan, Khelben Blackstaff found a suitable candidate to assume the leadership of the Dales, or rather a group of candidates. They were the Knights of Myth Drannor, so named to show their interest in the elven territories and their connection with the elven people, and Khelben gave them the Pendant of Ashaba (the symbol of the Lordship) in return for their services rendered to himself and to Shadowdale. Their leader, the Ranger Florin Falconhand, refused the honor of the lordship. It was therefore passed to Doust Sulwood, who was made the new lord with the support of Florin and Sylune (wife of the murdered Lord Aumry), and apparently also the secret support of Khelben Blackstaff as well.

Doust reoccupied the Twisted Tower, driving out the last agents of the Black Network. He also reinstituted many of Ashaba's democratic ideals, including the Lord's Court where all citizen may speak freely and air their grievances without threat of reprisal. Doust ruled for five years and proved to be a capable leader, beloved by the people. The regular presence of the Knights of Myth Drannor did much to ensure the protection of the area, particularly against incursions by Lyran Nathar the Pretender. Lyran was to have been Jyordan's named replacement, but with the Zhentarim routed there was little validity to the claim.
