When Ive tied up most of the loose ends Im going to go back through the entries and add the sources for them

PS

AUTHORS: Is the end of 2006 the cut off point for the Year of Lightning Storms? Or are books coming in 2007 set in 1374? (I know Ed and RAS will continue to write in the past)

Pauls just responded and unfortunatly the Cale trilogy was never dated out. He said "The entire trilogy occurs in a short span of time in 1373 -- maybe early summer to early autumn."

So we might have to make some dates up for the events

There's no harm in that really. And nice work, Dargoth, I'm going to find it a rather valuable resource.

Life is either daring adventure or nothing.

Really awesome job Dargoth. I'm definately going to get some use out of this in my campaigns, and thank you very much for putting the effort into this. I look forward to the updates to it, and I definately wouldn't worry too much if you have to assign some dates or leave some things a bit ambiguous . . .

I'll go with Marpenoth here. Say Marpenoth 23 to pick an arbitrary date.

The Cale trilogy seems to have unfolded around mid-summer 1373 over 2-3 months and I'd like that attack by the Sojourner on the western tower unfolds before Sharpfangs assault on the eastern towern. This means the towers are repaired later in the year, say by the end of Marpenoth, 1373 DR.

This sets up the Twin Towers in their original configuration for the events related in Power of Faerun, page 41, 43, on Flamerule 12 in 1374 DR.

Ah thanks

Do we want to make her attack on Calimport a couple of days later? or move it into early Uktar. The rage comes to an end in early Nightal

Most impressive Dargoth! I assume that the sages of Candlekeep have rewarded you with titles, land, gold and the oft-mentioned Calishite dancing girls?

I just want to add my voice to the choir: excellent work, Dargoth. I will use it in all my campaigns - it´s good always start in 1372 , and it´s my opinion that, when all is over, your Timeline gain a proper place in an upcoming issue of Candlekeep Compendium!

Dwarf, DM, husband, and proud of this! :P

I'm sorry I didn't see this before! What an excellent timeline.

Though Wizards is keen on keeping things current, the end of 2006 is NOT the cutoff for the year of Lightning Storms, so far as I know.

You could also add the events of Ghostwalker to your timeline of 1374. The novel transpires between Tarsakh 24 and Greengrass (the day after Tarsakh 30).

Oh yeah Dargoth,

The 3/3.5e Shining South sourcebook mentions that Lloth has gone silent and she is still silent and most of the current dates for this sourcebook are for 1373. So that leads me to believe that those events carried on into 1373.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

I have vague recollections of one of the authors saying it goes on for about 9 months Im hoping Lisa Smedman will be able to give me a definitive date for Lolths return as her next trilogy carries on from WOSQ

I think it was Rich Baker. You'll probably want to take a look through his compiled replies.

While I hate sounding like a nit-picker, Khelben's death actually falls outside of Uktar on the Feast of the Moon, which is one of 5 days in the year that doesn't fit within the month structures. That's all. Marvelous job on all other details.

Dargoth,

Any chance you could add Queen of the Depths to the timeline? (That would help with pinpointing the flow of the Rage across the Realms.)

Also, any chance you could include page numbers in the various books?

Queen of the Depthes is unfortunately another one of the the novels that was never date stamped however on page 27 of Queen of the Depthes Anton tells the cleric of Umberlee that the rage has been going for the last few months which probably makes early 1373

I plan on adding the page numbers for all the entries later on (when Ive got time to reread the novels)

Son of Thunder also has no time-stamp but the text is clear that it takes place in the 1373. The opening chapter takes place on Highharvestide and the rest of the narrative unfolds in the next two months or so.

I don't want to tell you something that is wrong, but I believe Depths of Madness will take place toward the end of 1374.

I don't have it any more specific than that for the moment.

Cheers

Hey Murray did we come up with a date for the "Dinosaur" attack on the Zhent city?

I vaguely recall that we spoke about it but I cant find anything in my notes
