Various internet sources claim to set the new Icewind Dale adventure at 1450s Dale Reckoning time.
The entry for Auril in appendix C states that she could not stay away for long after the Sundering. It does not say Second Sundering, but I assume it’s not referring to the first.
Assuming a few years past before Auril returned, I’m assuming the intended setting for this is approximately 1491 DR. Which would make sense because that’s close to the reset-button epoch for 5E.
I’m just trying to clarify this point for some of my players because it matters which gods might be hanging around. I know I have liberty as a DM, and it was probably intentionally left vague. I was just curious what the community thought because it’s not super clear from my research and there seems to be disagreement. Can somebody line this up with the novels’ chronology? Thanks!
