Hi, just joined the forum and thought I'd ask for some suggestions :)
My group recently asked me to run a game as the previous GM wanted to stop.
I was going (and started) to run just a single adventure (using White Plume Mountain, set near Mnt Hotenow), but the group have asked if it can go on for longer.
So now I find myself gathering ideas for a campaign before the end of this current game.
I'm after suggestions about the time period to set this in. I wouldn't mind the opportunity to have some of my Realms 'heroes' turn up as NPC's so what sort of date would be best for this?
Cheers.

1356 DR to 1370 DR, otherwise known as the golden age

Honestly, it depends on who your heroes are. We have two main eras of Realmslore -- the 1350s to the 1370s, and then 1470ish on. Some heroes are active in both eras, some are only active in one.

Many people here have a preference for one era over the other, and some are overly vocal about it.

I thought i was very restrained.

Ps. 1356 DR to 1370 DR is the best
