- Graz'zt is imprisoned by the witch Iggwilv on the planet Oerth in a different crystal sphere, removing most of his influence from Toril.
- The comet K'Thoutek is seen in the skies of Toril again. It is said to portend the arrival or birth of a powerful entity. [note 1]
- ↑ This date is extrapolated from the birth of the Simbul, who was the last noted great spellcaster to be born under the appearance of K'Thoutek and the stated fact that K'Thoutek appears every 237 years.
