Lathander symbol

The symbol of Lathander, the morninglord, often thought to be the cause of the Dawn Cataclysm.

The Dawn Cataclysm was an attempt by the god Lathander to reshape the pantheon of deities more in his own image. It is unknown when this event occurred but Lathander failed, resulting in the destruction of several deities and "powerful outsiders".[1]

A Historical Puzzle Edit

The precise chronology of the Dawn Cataclysm in mortal terms is murky, and no historian of the Realms has been able to date it definitively. Did it happen before or after the first of the Magisters was ordained by Mystra? Was the Dawn Cataclysm, as some claim, an event that climaxed in the Year of the Hangman's Noose, when the last of Tyche's chosen died in the coils of Moander? Was it the cumulation, in part, of the battle between Savras and Azuth? No mortal can say for sure.[2]
