I'm not sure about weeks, but i believe the entire Avatar Trilogy (Time of Troubles) began and ended during the year 1358.

Check the Grand History of the Realms. I'm betting they bring it down to the day... could be wrong, but that'll probably be your closest resource.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

According to the Forgotten Realms Atlas (2E), The Time of Troubles began with the arrival of the gods in the Realms on 15-Kythorn (June), 1358 DR; and ran through 15-Marpenoth (October), 1358 DR.

So that would be approximately four months, plus inter-month special/high/seasonal festival days.

I don't recall the exact timeline of the Time of Troubles ever been fully detailed. But A Grand History of the Realms provides a suitably referenced series of dates, as do the older adventure modules which explore the event.

And not forgetting the excellent FR Atlas by Karen Wynn Fonstad on pages 128-129 that lists major events in order as well as having more pages devoted to the story aspect of the the 'heroes' travels (or should that be travails?) during the ToT (plus fantastic cartography based on Ed's originals)

Cheers

So saith Ed. I've never said he was sane, have I?
Gods, all this writing and he's running a constant fantasy version of Coronation Street in his head, too. .
shudder,
love to all,

Ah, yes. I neglected to mentioned the Forgotten Realms Atlas. I keep forgetting that it offers a listing of the major events, much like the Dragonlance Atlas [probably my favourite of the Fonstad-era] offers the breakdown for the War of the Lance.

I was curious about this to.
