Please help.
It is between the years - 1490 DR "Year of the Star Walker's Return" & 1494 DR "Year of Twelve Warnings"

Who are the current inhabitants at "Candlekeep"??
And their current role/duty??

I have checked out: https://forgottenrealms.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Inhabitants_of_Candlekeep
but parts are vague or incomplete.

Please help
It is appreciated
Thanks

AFAIK, the most updated info about Candlekeep is what they put in the SCAG. And there is no info about the current inhabitants of Candlekeep in that book.

I remember two NPCs from the D&D Next playtest adventure. First-Reader Quinlapp (seems to be a human male), and Winthrop, the master of the House of Rest (the latest "Winthrop" in a large line of fellows using that name).

There is also the "Herald" novel, as some chapters of that novel happen at the keep. Yet I cannot assure you that there are named NPCs there, as I don't have that novel. I do know that in the novel a lot of NPCs die, so...

I guess, that means you have absolute freedom to populate Candlekeep to your liking.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

This was helpful in defining the ranks and order of the occupants - which I hope to get some help with.

This was cited as acting as a prequel to Ed Greenwood's The Herald novel (1487 DR).
So I guess it would be acceptable to use some of those people in the era of 1490DR-1494DR.

Yes I had a look at this, and yes a lot of those mentioned were also mentioned as being dead.
I also found 'AN INTRODUCTION TO CANDLEKEEP' by Ed Greenwood, 2004
Though I am trying to determine the Year in FR. Though even if it is a decade before 'The Herald' & 'Confrontation at Candlekeep' it will only be approximately 20 years prior to 1494DR.

I am hoping for some help and guidance in re-occupying Candlekeep with some creditable characters.

I'm pretty sure 'AN INTRODUCTION TO CANDLEKEEP' was written with a pre-Spellplague year in mind, so these NPCs were living around 1370s DR (during the age of 3.x sources). 4e and 5e sources are set in a century after the Spellplague (1479 to 1492 DR). Yeah that's a big jump in the timeline. Blame executive meddling.

If you're not concerned that much about canon, then any NPC can be used, however.

Thanks again Zeromaru X

I couldn't see anywhere where 'AN INTRODUCTION TO CANDLEKEEP' related to any era, but that is easily remedied.

Please take a look at my other post, any help me.
