  • Quagmire fields more than 20,000 troops to battle an orc horde that thundered its way across the ancestral lands of the Rengarth on their way toward the heartland of Netheril. While more than 11,000 Quagmire troops died, they claimed more than 150,000 orcs, sending the creatures scurrying back into the Barren Mountains and western forests.

    In many ways, Quagmire serves as a force of arms for Netheril, sending its warriors out to problem areas throughout the kingdom. Wherever there was a chance for combat, warriors and priests of Targus (Garagos) are present. Even many of the grounding cities sent their warriors to Quagmire so that they could be prepared for the orc, kobold, and goblin battles that awaited them. »

  • The citizens of Xanth rejoiced in the streets when the floating city of Spiel crashes to the earth. Most of the residents knew their time in the area was coming to a close. Without the other enclaves to protect them, there would be nothing to stop the orcs, kobolds, goblins, and other creatures from overrunning the grounding cities. Within a few decades, Xanth is abandoned. »

  • During the winter of this year, Izac Uthor gathers a goblin army near the abandoned village of Thandril, on the northwestern edge of the Goblin Marches. The host included near 200,000 goblins, tens of thousands of affiliated orcs and kobolds, and a few thousand hobgoblins leading detachments of goblins or orcs (The kobolds "tactics" leave little need or use for sophisticated battleplans).

    Simple-minded and grinning, the host called themselves the Thugs of Uthor. The goal of this offensive assemblage was to capture the lands north and west of the Anauroch Desert. »

  • Battle of Keeper's Dale
    House Baenre leads an army of drow, goblins, and kobolds out of Menzoberranzen to attack the dwarves of Mithral Hall (but after visiting Blingdenstone, fortunately, the svirfneblin had already abandoned the city). The dwarves are aided by svirfneblin, local barbarians, troops from Nesme and Silverymoon, and even the mysterious Harpells of Longsaddle and Lady Alustriel herself (including the Companions of the Hall, Drizz't Do"Urden, Catti-brie, and Regis). The drow are ultimately defeated and driven back to their homeland.

    In this battle, the matron of House Baenre is killed by Bruenor Battlehammer, just as all magic in Faerun stops during the Time of Troubles. With the matrons death, the spirit of Gandalug Battlehammer (who's spirit was magically trapped in a magical item), First king of Mythral Hall is returned to life. Gandalug strangles and kills Bladen'Kerst Baenre with her own whip.

    Quenthel Baenre attempts to escape through a dimensional door, but Drizzt, after defeating a glabrezu, catches up to and slays Quenthel.

    The illithid Methil El-Viddenvelp is thought to have been killed (mortally wounded by Catti-brie wielding Khazid'hea), but he is rescued by Bregan D'aerthe.

    Leadership of the Sept of Ill'Ghact eventually passes into the hands of Galgast. »

    Baatezu entering Toril through portals in Dragonspear Castle assemble an army of ogres, hobgoblins, orcs, bugbears, goblins, and kobolds bolstered by a black dragon. These "Hordes of Dragonspear" overwhelm and destroy the Way Inn (near the High Moor) and then attack Daggerford, but are defeated by a hastily assembled force of dwarves, elves from the Misty Forest, paladins of Ilmater, mercenaries, local militia, and a troop of the City Guard of Waterdeep. »

  • 1370 DR [Year of the Tankard]
  • The ogre mages Sothillis and Cyrvisnea emerge from the Small Teeth with their army of goblins, kobolds, ogres, and hill giants (which they had been preparing over the past 14 years). They attack eastern Amn. After sacking Fort Ishla, the army of monsters attack Esmeltaran with complete surprise and quickly conquer the city. While the ogre mages did not find the Armory of Nedeheim under the castle of Dahaundar, they did find royal records dating back to Imnel's regime suggesting that the armory had been moved to the city of Murann after the Horned Mage's attack.

    The ogre mages then split their forces. Cyrvisnea led a host of goblins and kobolds west to Imnescar, where they and Cyricists of the Twin Towers of the Eclipse together sack the town. In Imnescar, Cyrvisnea searches the old armory hidden beneath the town, confirming that Prince Imnel had indeed looted it of its weapons centuries before. After leaving a garrison in Esmeltaran to occupy Amn's army, Sothillis leds the remainder of his forces southwest through Trademeet to the port city of Murann, where the monsters laid siege on Eleasias 22, 1370 DR aided by a naval blockade by the pirates of the Nelanther (who were contracted by the Rundeen).

    The siege grounds to a halt over the winter while the monsters fortified their rear flank against attack by Amn's army. »
