• Age of Humanity
  • -3000 DR to 1358 DR
    With the elf and dwarf empires in decline, this era marks a dramatic increase in human expansion on Toril. The Mighty human empires of Calimshan, Mulhorand, and Unther arise during this era, as well as the now lost empires of Nethril, Jhaamdath, Narfell, and Raumathar.

    Towards the end of this era is a time of exploration and discovery, when new continents are discovered in the west (such as Maztica) and trade is reestablished with the east (Kara-Tur). The Great Glacier retreats, uncovering the realms of Vaasa and Damara. »

  • -2475 DR
  • The Great Glacier continues to expand, covering the lands that will eventually be known as Vaasa and Damara. »

  • 1038 DR [Year of Spreading Spring]
  • A rotational shift of Toril causes a slight but permanent change in the world's climate patterns. Global temperatures rise, causing the Great Glacier to melt and recede; the lands of Vaasa, Damara, Thesk, Impiltur, and Narfell become free of ice. »

  • 1298 DR [Year of the Pointed Bone]
  • The Book of Fangs and Talons appears in Elversult where Malarites hold an open conclave to plan their dispositions in the lands north of Amn, east of Iriaebor, and west of Vaasa. The book is featured as a holy object in many rituals during the long tenday gathering. It is known to have been taken north by a certain Onglukh Neirim, who styled himself the "Holy Stalker of Malar". Onglukh set about breeding great cats and other rare, large predators in secret near the Border Forest, feeding them on orcs, flinds, and ogres (whose decline in the area dates from this time). »

  • 1337 DR [Year of the Wandering Maiden]
  • Larynda Telenna, a priestess of Kiaransalee, brings her group of acolytes to the ruined city of V'elddrinnsshar. There they build the Acropolis of Thanatos, a temple to their dark goddess. Many would come to the temple, and it would become a staging point to launch attacks on the cults of Orcus that inhabited Vaasa. »

  • 1359 DR [Year of the Serpent]
  • Six adventurers are recruited to protect Bloodstone Village from an army of bandits; Gareth Dragonsbane, Olwen Forest-Friend, Friar Dugald, Riordan Parnell, Celedon Kierney, and Emelyn the Gray. The folk of the village rally behind the heroes to face bandits in battle, even to stand against the undead forces of Banak, high priest of the demon Orcus, assassins from the Citadel of Assassins, and other creatures in league with the Witch-King Zhengyi of Vaasa.

    In battle, Kane personally defeats the Grandfather of Assassins.

    Kane (at the time the Master of Spring) is called back to the Monastery of the Yellow Rose after the death of Grand Master Poke. Kane declines to take Master Poke's position, but must stay to train the new Grand Master, Cantoule when Temmenische also declines the position.

    The rest of the adventuring companions return from an expidition to the Abyss, having stolen the Wand of Orcus, shattered it in the blood of an avatar of Tiamat (checking her plans once again), and returned to Damara with the blessing of Bahamut. Gareth brought with him the Tree-Gem, which once planted, represented Bahamut's covenant to protect Damara against the influence of demons as long as the kingdom of Damara allied itself with the forces of good. With the planting of the Tree-Gem, Bahamut regains his status as a true deity.

    With the destruction of Wand of Orcus, Zhengyi loses his power over the undead and his castle (Castle Perilous) crumbles. Zhengyi is destroyed and the second war between Damara and Vaasa ends. »

  • Eleasis 2 The Shadovars lose the Karsestone when several of Mystra's Chosen (Khelben Arunsun, Laeral Silverhand, Alustriel Silverhand, Dove Falconhand, Storm Silverhand) and the stone giant Aris attack and damage Shade's mythallar, temporarily crippling the enclave. Galaeron Nihmedu, after having a falling out with the ruler of Shade, Telamont Tanthul, rescues Vala from Prince Escanor.

    Elves and their allies drive the phaerimms out of Evereska in a tenday, and the city's mythal is restored by month's end, aided by Galaeron.

    Galaeron's father dies while fighting the phaerimm and inherits his lordship. Galaeron is offered the position of Master of the Defenses by Lord Duirsar (who replaces Kiinyon Colbathin, who also died in the war), but turns it down, choosing instead to travel with Vala to her home, the Granite Tower, in Vaasa, along with his spirit-deep mate, the wood elf Takari Moonsnow. »
