In the 12th century DR, some time before the Time of Troubles,[5][6][note 1] the adepts of the College of Rune Magics practiced a form of rune magic that heavily revolved around the use of runesticks in casting a wide variety of rituals.[7]

Era of Upheaval[]

  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in The Shattered Statue that take place 200 years prior to the module itself.

The only known Proster from this period of publishing was Proster Obarskyr and page 77 of the The Grand History of the Realms dates his reign as lasting from 1122 DR1164 DR.
