Hello all, I tried to write up a timeline put together from infos found in novels, sourcebooks and adventures.I hope it's alright to post it here and share it with you? I tried to be general and not to be to specific so peple will have to still read the novels themselves (not to mention Copyrights).

(Mirtul, 'month of melting', RoS pg 57 )
(*Note: The year of RoS is a pure guess of mine, but as the status quo of the Campaign Guide/ 1479 DR Year of the Ageless One is put aside it must be in or after that year. I suppose that the return of Malar to the Moonshaes might be interpreted as one of the first signs of the Sundering.)

1483 DR Year of the Tasked Weasel
Baldurs Gate: Ulder Ravengard, Blaze of the Flaming Fist and right hand of former Duke Abdel Adrian, takes Duke Adrians place in the Council of Four. (LoBG-ToD #4)
(Note: In the comic Ravengard is asked 'how he is shouldering his new position (as Duke)' so it seems that he only recently took over the position. As he is holding 'court' within the Watch Citadel and wears Flaming Fist armor it seems that he inherited his former superiors duties as Marshall of the Flaming Fist as well.)

(Note: According to information from the Adventurer's League the 'Tyranny of Dragons' arc takes place in 1489 DR and according to pg.10 of the TRoT Adv. the adventures take place 'after the Sundering'. But the novel 'Archmage' tells us, that Tiamat's gamble for power had already failed at the end of 1485DR. [See D: A pg. 2] Additionally the Adventure mentions Connerad Brawnanvil as ambassador of the dwarves to the 'Lord's Alliance', but Connerad dies in 'Archmage'/ 1486 DR. [See: D: A pg.282/ 356] The mentioning of Connerad stepping down as king (TRoT Adv. pg.15) is also wrong, as he is still king at the time of his death. [See D: A pg 282])

Unlike other Chosen, the mulhorandi manifestations of the gods remain to rule their people after the Sundering. (SCAG pg.12)

Note: year is pure guess

(Note concerning 'Legacy of the Crystalshard': Although a note placed the Adventure in 1485DR, this makes little sense, as 'Archmage' states, that Dain Stokley Silverstream is only freed from drow slavery in Nightal 1486 DR (D: A pg.348) and the Hosttower of Luskan is about to be restored (D: A pg.360). )

Laeral and Alustriel of the Seven Sisters are revealed to be among those monks. Elminster tricks the Netherese by posing as High Prince Tanthul. Elminster is convinced by Larloch to help him use the energies of Candlekeeps wards to strengthen the Weave.

Shade Enclave crashes onto Myth Drannor. Elminster ensures the death of High Prince Telamont Tanthul as the Shade Enclave crashes onto Myth Drannor.

The last remaining defenders of the City of Song, among them Coronal Ilsevele Miritar and her consort Flar Starbrow, were rescued by the Srinshee and transported to Semberholme. (S:TH pg.352) The living elves temporarily abandon Myth Drannor. (FtR:TDaCF)

1488 DR Year of Dwarvenkind Reborn

Throughout much of Faerun, the winter of 1487 and 1488 lasted longer than any on record. The solstices and equinoxes had somehow drifted. Later seasons followed suit, with each starting and ending later than expected. (SCAG pg.18)

Late Tarsakh (Spellstorm Begins)
Cormyr/Suzail: The Dragon Rampant Club is burned to the ground after a wild spell duel between Manshoon and Shaaan the Serpent Queen. They fought over the mind of Lord Sardasper Halaunt who came to Suzail, offering to sell the legendary Lost Spell of the god Azuth. Lord Halaunt is left a drooling idiot and is returned to his home by his servants. (E:S pg.27)
Cormyr: Drawn by rumors, that the legendary Lost Spell of the late god Azuth has been found several archmages meet at 'Oldspires', the home of Lord Sardasper Halaunt. The manor is curtained by a Spellstorm and the wizards find that they can't leave and that their magic is diminished by the storm. The archmages assembled are Elminster of Shadowdale, Manshoon (once of the Zhentarim), Malchor Harpel (once of Longsaddle and still of the returned Twilight Tower), Tabra, Maraunth Torr, Skouloun and Yusendre (two surviving Elders of Nimbral), Runemaster Calathlarra of the Twisted Rune, Shaaan the Serpent Queen, Alastra Hathwinter of the Harpers, Laragunt of Threskel and an unnamed Red Wizard. The later two, spooked by their loss of magical power flee back into the Spellstorm and are turned insane by it. (E:S pg.56-63). The 'negotiations' for the ownership of the Lost Spell that take place inside 'Oldspires' claim the lives of archmages Maraunth Torr, Skouloun and Yusendre of Nimbral, Runemaster Calathlarra, Shaaan the Serpent Queen and Alastra Hathwinter.
(Spellstorm Ends)

Luruar: The League of the Silver Marches disbands due to ill feelings among it members caused by failures during the war against the orcs. (SCAG pg. 18)

Sembia: Sembia dissolves into a collection of city-states. (SCAG pg. 18)

1489 DR Year of the Warrior Princess

Many of the wars begun in the Sundering come to a close. (SCAG pg.18)

Following Flamerule, Vhaeraun and Eilistraee are separate deities with the same powers and portfolios they had before 1375, but a new understanding, respect, and even friendship for each other. Some of their followers still war with each other, but the two deities do not. Thus far, Eilistraee’s teachings after the Sundering are the same as before the Sundering. (Source ED)
Eilistraee, the Dark Dancer is seen dancing and speaking to mortals up and down the Sword Coast (E:DM pg. 106)

Waterdeep: Laeral Silverhand replaces Dagult Neverember as Open Lord of Waterdeep. (TRoT Adv. pg 14). Dagult, after losing Waterdeep, consolidates his power by concentrating his efforts as Lord-Protector of Neverwinter (TRoT 15). Many nobles and guildmasters of the city are vying for the attention of or conspire against the new Open Lord Laeral Silverhand, while trying to use the transition to get rid of rivals This political chaos, that many of the city's residents consider 'business as usual', will still not be resolved in 1491 DR (PotA Adv. pg. 38)
(Note: According to 'The Herald' Laeral spend most of her time searching for clues about Khelbens work concerning the Weave at Candlekeep. So her appearance in the Tiamat adventure is wrong assuming my corrections concerning the date of that adventure derived from the dates taken from the Salvatore novels are correct. As the adventure was placed within this year I placed Laeral's appearance as Open Lord here.)

1490 DR Year of the Star Walker's Return

Dessarin Valley: Cultist of the Elemental Eye try to add Nurvureem, the 'Dark Lady' of Rundeth Manor, to their ranks, but the 'drow dragon' declines the offer by killing most of the cult's envoys. (PotA Adv. pg.36, 179-180) (Note: several months before the adventure begins)

Waterdeep: Laeral Silverhand gatheres enough support to restore noble titles and property to noble families who lost them through misfortune or folly and takes them from those who bought them, like the Wild Lords (Du 190) and foreign agents. (SCAG pg. 57)

1491 DR Year of the Scarlet Witch
The woodelf Morgwais, called the 'Red Lady' or 'Lady of the Wood', seeks to unite the disparate elftribes of the High Forest through the Caerilcarn (Council of the Wood) to resurrect the ancient kingdom of Eaerlann. In 1491 DR first steps have been taken by allying various elven settlements. (PotA Adv. pg.16)

(Note: 'Princes of the Apocalypse'Adv. begins) (PotA Adv. pg.19)
(Note 'Princes of the Apocalypse'Adv. Ends)

( Note: 'Death Masks' begins) (E: DM, pg.15)
Waterdeep: A plague chases most residents from Downshadoe and the Warrens (SCAG pg 55, E:DM pg 86)
Lord Mirt the Moneylender returns to Waterdeep after over a century. (E:DM pg.7)
The floating shanty-town district Mistshore burns (E: DM, pg.22) and the harbor is returned to it's original function (SCAG pg.55, E:DM pg.). The Melairshield (CW pg.20) seems to be damaged, as houses collapse into Downshadow Digging below the city without permission is declared illegal. (SCAG pg. 55, E:DM pg.72-73)
Cloud Giants lead by a giant named Burrult visit Waterdeep in their cloud castle in search of Princess Irie, daughter of storm giant king Skyvald (E:DM pg.59)
(Note: probably foreshadowing the events of 'The Storm King's Thunder'-Adventure)
Open Lord Silverhand orders to restore the Guard, Watch, Navy and it's Griffon Cavalry to it's original functions. But Laeral doesn't want to refound Force Grey just yet. (SCAG pg 55, E:DM pg. 64, 144-146)
Masked Lord Braethan Cazondur's tries to become ruler of Waterdeep. His bid for power claims the lives of several of his fellow Masked Lords as well as those of about a dozen guildmasters. During his fight with Open Lord Laeral Silverhand, Cazondur is slain by his own allies, after those received orders from their master, the Xanathar to stop the Masked Lord, whose ambitions didn't sit well with the crimelord's goals. (E:DM pg.370-371)
Open Lord Silverhand opens the assemblies of the Lords of Waterdeep to all guildmasters and nobles who want to attend to watch and listen.(E:DM pg.381)
( Note: 'Death Masks' ends)

1492 DR Year of Three Ships Sailing

So they just outright retconned Tchazzar's return to 1479? Bizarre. I still have to read the books, so I assume answers will be there.

Nice work on the timeline!

You mean because Tchazzar already had returned before the Spellplague? No, he was imprisoned at sometime and freed again in 'The Captive Flame'. So no retcon here. Have to reread those books, so infos in the timeline are still a bit sketchy on that matter.

No, it doesn't. It only mentions The Darkening as it appeared in Night of the Hunter. That's one of the things I said it missed out a few days ago. To be fair, stuff from the novels seems to be in place just not all the adventures. Murder In Baldur's Gate is there, Legacy of the Crystal Shard is there but the rest of the Encounters season is missing, as is the content of adventures from Dragon/Dungeon Magazine.

It has been mentioned before here, yes. What is bizarre though is that, unlike other recent sources with continuity errors, Bob Salvatore is actually listed as one of the primary designers of that Encounters module.

Maybe it is no continuity error? Maybe Stokely survived his battle with Tiago and is among the prisoners of the drow and will be freed before the adventure starts?
Tough times for the poor Dain ^^

As for the 'missing' information from the rest of the Encounter-adventures (Scourge of the Sword coast and Dead in Thay) and Dungeon/Dragon magazines: They all appeared as pdf and I sadly have no access to these infos.

I believe Stokely was described as being grievously injured in spring, 1484 DR (NOTH); and alive and well again in late 1485 DR (LOTCS).

It is possible that he was only hurt, but not actually killed. If that is correct, then there's no discontinuity.

I would call the publication of the adventure before the novel a big spoiler, though.

Perhaps Stokely's previous injuries in the novel made him a bit easier to challenge in the later adventure?

He doesn't, it's only the enclave that's been found. The facts about Ioulaum's current state and whereabouts don't seem to have changed since he was revealed as an illithid elder brain in 3rd edition.

WotC said multiple times that all the gods who were removed would be back. However they have been vague on how most deities returned (they only explained Bhaal, Helm, Mystra, Mask, Lathander, Nobanion). Supposedly they will reveal more with time...

The Companions of the Hall were reincarnated as newborn babies by Mielikki. While they were growing up, Drizzt and his more recent companions were placed in magical stasis by Mielikki while Athrogate survived as a vampire.

The Tyranny of Dragons takes place after the Sundering. I realize the adventures themselves don't indicate a specific date, but if you look at the Adventurer's League website, you'll see the info about Phlan during the Tyranny of Dragons indicates that the current year is 1489 DR.

The 5e Starter Set adventure, Lost Mine of Phandelver, doesn't include a specific date either, although one can extrapolate a potential date due to the references to Mt Hotenow having erupted 30 years prior. It erupted in 1451 DR, so that would put LMoP at 1481 DR, although that seems a bit earlier, as the adventure seems to be post-Sundering. I would put it around 1489 DR as well, especially since the devs have talked about how you could run LMoP and then take the same characters and run them through the ToD adventures too.

One other thing to point out: the Sundering modules all have a section about what the Sundering is, whereas LMoP and the ToD adventures do not. This further suggests that they take place in the post-Sundering world.

Taking my infos mainly from printed sources so I've next to no knowledge about online adventures.

'Return of the King' takes place in 1484DR and what is said there on pg. 10 would indicate that the Dragons are starting to gather the hoard for Tiamat, just like it is described in the adventure. That's why I assumed that this is the year the adventure takes places.

It is possible that the dragons started gathering riches for this purpose early, but 5 years before anyone else other then the drow notices? And Tiamat's bid for power/Freedom seems to me something every other god tried during the Sundering, to get his place on Ao's Tablets.

I myself have troubles putting a finger on theright year mainly because Laeral becomes Open Lord of Waterdeep which would make more sense after the Sundering.

Probably have to wait for Salvatores and Ed's next books, maybe they will shed some light on this matter.

They aren't online adventures. They're the D&D Encounters, D&D Expeditions, and D&D Epics modules used for the official Organized Play program (known as the Adventurer's League) run at various gaming stores around the world. They're as official as they come, so if the AL website says the current in-game year for Tyranny of Dragons is 1489 DR, then I'd take that as the official in-game year.

What is 'Return of the King'?

Why, that's the third book in Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" series, and a really good movie to boot!

Lirdolin slipped up a little. He was talking about Salvatore's latest novel, RISE of the King.

That's what a I thought! LOL.

Maybe somebody got their dates mixed up? Or maybe the dragons really were starting to gather stuff up several years in advance?

I don't know that we'll know for certain unless WotC publishes a campaign update with an official timeline.

EDIT: Luckily, page 10 is in the free sample. It reads like foreshadowing to me.

I get the strangest looks from my coworkers when I accidentally slip certain words into conversations, like "Drizzt", "Battlehammer", or "mithral".

But I don't know why. Doesn't everybody talk like that?
