The Roll of Years


The Roll of Years

Augathra the Mad wrote a comprehensive list of the names of the years from -422 DR to what will be 1600 DR (the Year of Unseen Enemies), although it is widely believed that the roll of years was created by Alaundo of Candlekeep. Because some of the names of the years went missing, Alaundo replaced these with his own choices. Supposedly, the names given the years are prophecies made by Alaundo as to the most significant event of that year.

The current year is 1489 DR, or the Year of the Warrior Princess.
