This is the whack to start the interesting threat anew. I modified the post from paec_djinn with what I know (or think to know). The modifications I put in cursive. Any help with the date, the outcome, or with wars that are not mentioned is greatly appreciated.

1. Obould Many Arrows v.s Mithral Hall dwarves.
Mithril Hall (1370- DR)

Important Battles:
-Battle at Shallows
-Battle at and before Keeper's Dale

Has come to a standstill – Obould Many Arrows is establishing a realm.

2. Cult of the Dragon v.s Impiltur and Damara.
Impiltur (1373) Border of Vaasa and Damara (1373-)

Important Battles:
-Battle near Lyrabar
-Siege of the Monastery of the Yellow Rose

I don’t know more – any idea’s?

3. House Dlardrageth v.s Silver Marches and Elves of High Forest and Evereska.
High Forest and Evereska(1374) Myth Drannor (1374-)

Important Battles:
-Battle of the Lonely Moors.
-Battle in Myth Drannor

The elves are resettling Myth Drannor – it is indefinite if other wars may result from it, namely Zentil Keep, Hillsfar and Sembia may revive interests in Cormanthor.

4. Menzoberranzan/Ched Nassad v.s Jaezred Chaulssin.
Menzoberranzan (Date unknown) Ched Nassad (date unknown)

Important Battles:
-Slave Uprising in Menzoberranzan
-Duergar and Lesser Houses in Ched Nassad
-Duergar and Kaanyr Vhok's Attack on Menzoberranzan

The elves are resettling Myth Drannor – it is indefinite if other wars may result from it, namely Zentil Keep, Hillsfar and Sembia may revive interests in Cormanthor.

5. Phaerimm v.s Elves of Evereska v.s Shade Enclave
Evereska(1371-1372) Cormyr (1372)

Important Battles:
-Phaerimm siege of Evereska
-Shade attack on Tilverton

Conclusion: Shade Enclave returns above Anauroch, Tilverton is destroyed, and the phaerimm are defeated- their numbers greatly reduced.

6. Ghazneths, Nalavarauthatoryl and Minions v.s Kingdom of Cormyr
Cormyr (137? DR)

Cormyr survived barley – and is licking the wounds from the death of King Azuon and the sacrifice of Vangerdahast. It remains to be seen who will try to carve some part of this kingdom for himself.

7. War in Chondath which is slowly erupting
Chondath (137? DR)

Any infos?

8. War in Threat from the Sea trilogy
Sea of Fallen Stars (137?)

Important Battles:
Battle at Myth Nantar.

The threat ended with the destruction of Iakhovas after battles in Waterdeep, Baldur’s gate, Calimport and other ports.

9. Ogre Mages vs. Temple of Cyric
Southern Amn (1370 DR)

Any infos?

10. Manshoon Clones v.s Manshoon Clones (The Manshoon Wars)
Faerun (1370 DR)

Are these really wars or only skirmishes?

12. Reclamation Wars
Tethyr (13??-1369 DR)


13. Sembia & Hillsfar against Elves of Tangled Trees
Tangled Trees (1372 DR)

Conclusion: The war never actually got started though there were a few ambushes along the Rauthavyr Road. Larajin and her twin managed to convince both sides to stop the war.

Through my intensive research on the recent events in Damara I've come up with some information on the Year of the Rogue Dragon related to this war.

**Timeline**
Mirtul
2: Sammaster raises an army of orcs and giants in Vaasa by pretending to be Zhengyi their former master. The army takes the Bloodstone gates and floods into Damara (The Rite)
3: Gareth Dragonsbane leads an army against the monstrous army but falls when wizards working for the cult of the Dragon betray him. Gareth’s soul is trapped on the shadow plane. (The Rite)

During the events of the Year of the Rogue Dragons (1373 DR) Gareth Dragonsbane's soul had been imprisoned in the Plane of Shadow due to the treachery of some wizards who had been corrupted and were in reality Sammaster's agents. His absence left Damara briefly in disarray and prone to attack from orcs and goblinoids swarming from Vaasa. He was saved only thanks to the actions of dragonhunters Pavel Shermov and Will Turnstone, a handful of his trusted officers and companions, and (quite unbelievably) an ancient vampiric dragon by the name of Brimstone. Having recovered from his ordeal, he once more lead his troops to victory against the forces of Vaasa, apparently slaying the Witch-King (who had arisen again) in single combat. In reality, Brimstone had conjured the illusion of an undead riding on his back, and he and Dragonsbane had planned the fight all along. It had a demoralising effect for the Vaasans which made victory easier.

25: The monastery of the Yellow rose is besieged by a score of chromatic dragons (The Rite)
Kythorn
25: Brimstone a former servant of Sammaster travels to Plane of Shadow with a group of Paladins and Dragon slayers and releases Gareth Dragonsbane soul. (The Rite)
Flamerule
8: Kara and Dorn travel to the metallic dragons hidden lair in the Galena Mountains, Tamarand is forced to kill Lareth, the metallic dragons king when he falls to the rage. (The Rite)
11: The metallic dragons leave their refuge in the Galena’s. They successfully attack and destroy the chromatic dragons besieging the Monastery of the Yellow rose (The Rite)
11: The Damarans battle the Orcs and giant army in Damara. Gareth leads the Damarans to victory when he and Brimstone trick “Zhengyi”’s army into believing he vanquished the Lich. (The Rite)

Voilà fellow scribes, hope it prooved useful.

Most of the answers are going to be speculation at this point because it is the in game reason for the changes to 4e rules, so we can't give a exact this is what it is since the new material doesn't come out till next year and so far all we have is teasers. See the Grand History sourcebook that just came out or look through the threads about the Grand History.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Hey, does anyone know about the progress of the war in Amn? The war just sort of stopped as there's no recent updates about it in novels or sourcebooks.

Last I remember about it was when there was mention how a city in Amn (forgot the name) was under seige and two of the Council of Six members were trapped there.

Yes. One of my characters more or less brought a stop to the Sythillisian conflict.

Of course, that's only in my Realms, not the "official" version.

Have you read the various tidbits about the war in Power of Faerûn?

Sage, it's been awhile. Lol.

I've sort of moved that stuff out of my brain to make room for physics and math.

Why, was there anything that stated the war has ended?

As far as I know, not really. Although, if I recall correctly, there are some bits about the war in Jaleigh Johnson's recent novel, The Holwing Delve (nothing major!), and it was mentioned that Amn and the monster army came to some sort of uneasy truce.

Ya, I read that novel too. In fact, the novel also mentions how Amn's view of magic may be changing as the Amnians know they don't have the power to defeat the monster army. If they're going to request allies or hire mercenaries, they're going to have to adjust to the fact that magic will be a big factor in defeating the monsters.

Well, last I knew there was a semi-cease fire between the Amnians and the Sythillisians due to the Stinger invasion. I'm not really sure if there's been a substantial update since Power of Faerun. I mean, a change in the Amnian view on magic would be pretty huge but it sounds like it's mostly "maybes and ifs"

I was interested in doing something with the Amnian Ogre Mage war, if only because of the three faiths/temples you would have fighting alongside the 'good guys':

1) A Selunite temple

2) Loviatar's worshippers

3) A rival ttemple of Cyric

Just imagine trying to keep them all from killing each other!

I am surprised nobody said anything about the Luruar vs Many Arrows kingdom. And what are the chances for Luruar to survive.

Given some of the 4E material about Mary Arrows, I think it's likely Many Arrows will self-destruct.

There was also Sembia/Netheril-Cormyr war that ended with Cormyr's victory like they were not strong before.
