Falling Fire was originally part of the Kingdom of the Valley of the Silver Rains in Oregon, which was the original home of Icefyre. At Clan in 1997, members of Falling Fire assassinated their host and king and jumped to the Kingdom of the Mystic Seas, also in Oregon. In time, they built a friendship with Kudzu and Evil Ryss, who were at the time in Emerald Coast, and through them the Kingdom of the Wetlands. As one of the prominent groups in Florida, Falling Fire put aside a rivalry with the other (Silverwater) and all the groups in Florida joined under one banner to create the Kingdom of Neverwinter. Falling Fire has played a primary role in the Kingdom, with members holding all the principal Offices in the kingdom numerous times. They are generally regarded as one of (if not the) top fighting park east of the Mississippi.
For many years Falling Fire has hosted an event which takes place roughly five weeks after the Gathering of the Clans. Thus it was named "FWACT", or "Five Weeks After Clan Thingy". They have also hosted Neverwinter's Coronation numerous times, often at the Rotary Club campsite, where they built the Falling Fire Castle.
