Neverwinter is a fictional city-state in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. Neverwinter was founded by Lord Halueth Never. It sits on the northwestern coast of the subcontinent of Faerûn. The city has been the home locale for the first graphical MMORPG ever created, the original Neverwinter Nights on AOL, which was developed by Stormfront Studios. BioWare later acquired the rights to the title and developed a series of best-selling role-playing video games under the name Neverwinter Nights. In the Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition version of the Forgotten Realms lore, Neverwinter was destroyed in the Spellplague and much of its population scattered. This was accompanied by a new trilogy of Drizzt novels taking place in the city as it is being rebuilt, written by R. A. Salvatore. Other products included the MMORPG Neverwinter.

The multiplayer game "Neverwinter" takes place in the setting of Forgotten Realms - one of the most developed worlds of the game Dungeons & Dragons.
At the beginning of the game, the city of Neverwinter is in chaos because of the sudden disappearance of Lord of Neverwinter.
In the novel by Robert Salvatore "Gauntlgrym", dedicated to this period, it is said that after plunging into chaos, Spellplague and a Primordial Fire Elemental almost destroyed the city.
The remaining residents united in several factions, between which a struggle for power in the city broke out. The dead began to emerge from the graves, they call the city their home and also pretend to power.
