Anyone know where the internet got the dates for the birth/death of Alaundo? Only date I can find is his arrival at Candlekeep.

Alaundo's Prophecies (in Alaundo's Library, found at Candlekeep).

Not much. FR Wiki cites a few sourcebooks. Most of the other online information is actually compiled from snippets by Ed and other (former) FR authors/designers ... not logo-branded officially published canon, but not far off either.

In any event, Alaundo's biography (such as it is) has remained intact for a long time, it seems unlikely it's going to be contradicted by future canon.

And I *think* they may have come from Steven Schend.

Don't quote me on that yet, though, until I've had a chance to check my archives.

I though for sure I'd find it in the GHotR, but no dice.

Odd, that - it even states there was an air of mystery about his past (and obviously his demise).

IIRC, Alaundo's bones (or maybe just his skull) is somewhere around the Shilmista Forest region. I can't recall where I read that (or how accurate it is), but there was something about it somewhere (and I also remember something about Illithids wanting his skull). I don't know if that lore (wherever it is from) would even mention his death, but at least if he has a skeleton in canon, we know he did indeed die.

Ah, Okay - I found a thread that lead me to the info.

I thought Alaundo's remains would be within his private quarters, the "Do Not Disturb" sign on his door-knocker having been respectfully observed by Candlekeep's monks over many centuries. It would offer an explanation for the otherworldly Candlekeep Site Update scrolls which mysteriously appear under his door every few months or so.

The Lalya Maurshanta by Georges Krashos gives new dates:

"Alaundo settled on the shores of the modern-day Sword Coast sometime around the Year of Scriveners (-264 DR)
...
Alaundo the Seer lived a long and simple life at Candlekeep until the day he disappeared from his spartan cell in the Year of Lost Messengers (-116 DR)."

Looking at the old thread that Markustay put out.... do we have anything even remotely concerning dates that Azuth entrapped Savras?

BTW, I just got a lovely idea that I need to think through based on this entrapment and release just prior to the spellplague from the Powers and Pantheon entry of Savras based on two entries

"Ever since Savras's loss, sages have speculated that the All-Seeing One must have foreseen his own defeat. If this is true, perhaps Savras planned his own defeat as a feint in a long-term ploy for victory. Only he can say, and he refuses to speak on it".

"The two contended during or slightly after the Dawn Cataclysm, and Savras fell".

Just loving that his imprisonment was possibly during the Dawn Cataclysm... which is also when I feel that Amauanator was heavily on the wane and Lathander was on the surge.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I actually hear Alaundo is alive and well and hosting a website somewhere...

He does rather well for a guy with no head.
