  • Alaundo, later famous as "Alaundo the Seer", arrives in Candlekeep. A quiet, learned man of unknown origins (though his stray comments led colleagues to believe he grew up in a Sword Coast port city), Alaundo extended the Roll of Years greatly by naming many years in the far future. At Candlekeep, a belief arose that Alaundo dreamed, and "saw" future events, but had to work through repeated dreamings to place them precisely in time. Some say gods inspired him, or that he was the secret avatar of a god, but he remains a mystery. He came to Candlekeep to read the writings of others, books fascinated him lifelong. »
