Death Mirtul 11th 1371 DR. Funeral Kythorn 11th 1371 DR.
From the Forgotten Realms novel The Siege:
27 mirtul, the Year of Wild Magic -- 27 May 1372 DR
It was almost dawn, and they were encamped -- hiding, really -- with that remained of the armies of the Heartlands Alliance, a mile outside of what had once been Tilverton. The shadowstuff had consumed the city almost completely, spreading well beyond the walls to engulf even the the outlying stock pens and caravan campsites. All that remained of the city was the wall atop the Knoll District and the jagged ruins of Tilver's Palace, now back lit by the sinking sphere of Vangerdahast's magic orb.
Purple Dragon Ranks
What follows, comes from posts from Candlekeep.
Purple Dragon ranks, from lowest to highest:
Battlemaster and Oversword are somewhat equal, both being roughly equivalent
to general officers in our world. Generally speaking, a battlemaster is a field
officer, while an oversword is a garrisoned or "base" officer (like
the commander of the garrison of Arabel, Oversword Dutharr). You'll never really
see a noble below the rank of swordcaptain, and rarely below the rank of lionar.
Commoners, for their part, have a hard time making it past lionar, though an
ennobled or knighted commoner can rise to any rank the crown or his superiors
