The Dawn Cataclysm > Forgotten Realms. 2.8.

The Dawn Cataclysm > Forgotten Realms

Where can I get more information about the Dawn Cataclysm? Nowhere, at present. It's one of the abiding mysteries of the Realms. Sorry we can't be more help with this one. :-) [Steven Schend, in a post to Realms-L, said that to his knowledge, there are no plans to expand on the Dawn Cataclysm in any further Realms products.] Many list members have speculated, though.

Simon Gibbs does a good job of summarizing what’s known: A quick note on the date of the Dawn Cataclysm: it's a perennial thorn for those interested in Realms Timelines. To soothe the debate, Steve Schend wrote: Not to disappoint, but this will probably never happen, simply because it's irrelevant to mortal Realms history. I'm not narrowing it down further than that right now, and frankly, I've no desire to do so, as it should be a vague time at best.

UA:Variant Rules

Unearthed Arcana exposes you to more variant rules and alternative methods of gaming than anyone can hope to use in a single campaign. On top of those, a bunch of House Rule sidebars written by various members of the Wizards of the Coast R&D department describe personal variants they’ve used in their home campaigns. In fact, there’s probably more in here than you could reasonably use in a dozen campaigns, and some of it you probably won’t ever get around to actually introducing to your game. Take a deep breath—it’s okay. Just as no player actually casts all the new spells in the latest rulebook, and no DM actually uses all the new creatures in the latest manual of monstrosities, you shouldn’t feel any compulsion to use all these variants, even in a lifetime of gaming. Instead, pick and choose the ones that feel right for your style of gaming, your players, and your campaign. When you turn to the next page, the inundation begins. So saith Ed!
