A New Era
A New Era follows a “split” timeline in regards to the setting. While everything up to 591 CY is strictly canon, everything after that is homebrewed. This is mainly due to the lack of published material after 591 CY.
I say it’s a split timeline in the event that WOTC publishes post 600CY setting material for 5e. We won’t be using that for this game, provided it does come to fruition.
Generally speaking, I’ll try to add information pertaining to the area the characters are in. So… for instance, if the party is in Onnwal, obviously I won’t be detailing the history of the Shield Lands.
