   Well that depends on which end of the story you want.  So I'll give
you both.

   My reasons for changing the Realms to this extent are based on the fact
that I was taking over DM duties from our long term DM.  The problem here
was that the old DM knew a lot more about the Realms than I did, but I didn't
have the time or inclination to make a new world, nor spend the money on
a different TSR world.  SO I decided to keep the Realms as a base, but change
things enough to make sure that the old DM didn't have any DM knowledge
about the world he was now a PC in.

   As for how Toril being shattered into thousands on small islands.
Well that goes back to the Avatar trilogy, and wondering what why when a
God got a wild surge it didn't cause a lot more damage.  None of the
inhabitetents of the shattered realms know what really happened, but most
sages agree that the level of magic needed to power the changes that took
place is well beyond that any mortal could ever hope to achieve.
