Forgive me for the thread necro. I'm about to run Scourge of the Sword Coast as a follow-up to Legacy of the Crystal Shard. Since the latter actually has a specific date, I'm going to set the former in 1486 DR. However, what I want to know is how much time is supposed to have passed since the events of Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle. Months? Years? I'd like to be able to refer to some of the events from Ghosts in passing, like the burning of the Laughing Hollow - should I describe it as having been quite recent or what?
