In my opinion, having both would be ideal! As a reader I would like to see Abeiran events appear in the roll of years, but an overview in one place would also be nice.

The easiest way to distinguish Abeiran events from others would just to mention in the text that it happened there. Or, if we want it clearer, we could start the event with "On Abeir:", or just "On Abeir, ...", as e.g. [[-930 DR]] starts with "In Kara-Tur, the Black Leopard Cult..."

If we want an even stronger distinction, we could create an "on Abeir" header, comparable to the "in conflicts", "in deities", etc. headers. That has the disadvantage however, that we loose the usual distinction into different kinds of events, but as naturally much fewer Abeiran events are to be expected, that might not be a big problem.

Forums: Helping Hand > Abeir timeline

Use the following template for a nicely presented post:

I've found a few dragon magazines that have enough information to create a small timeline of Abeir. My doubts are, should we create an article for this (like the one of the First Flowering? Or just add the years to the Roll of Years?

If we go the second option, I guess we need to create a way to differentiate events that happened on Abeir of those that happened on Toril.

Also, should we record the timeline using Dalereckoning?
