I've been working on the backstories of a few of my characters and I'm curious about one of the wider events taking place in the Realms during the server's timeline, the Cormanthor War. Since server's inception, I know the events of the spellplague in 1385 DR have been suspended, do the events of the wider realms vary from that point?
The Cormanthor War was waged between 1374-1376 DR involving an elven crusade from Evermeet, a force of Fey'ri, the Dalelands, Sembia, and Zhentil Keep. The conflict led to the reestablishment of the elven kingdom of Myth Drannor. The war is detailed in the The Last Mythal trilogy by Richard Baker published between 2004-2006. The events of the trilogy take place in 3.5 edition, but occur after the server's inception of 1372 DR.
I read The Last Mythal trilogy in 2007 while running on the server and imagined the events playing out in the world around me. I'd love to build the colorful conflict into the backstories of some of my characters if available.

Stuff published in the 3.x period of publication is generally considered to have happened, with the exception of the dwarven and Faerunian pantheons getting wrecked in the last couple years of the 3.x timeline. FRC adhered pretty close to the published timeline of Grand History of the Realms before 1383 DR. In 1383 DR, the dwarven pantheon got mangled and that didn't occur on FRC, nor did the Spellplague of 1385 DR.
There were also some novels published after the end of 3.x that ret-conned events prior to the end of 3.x that were not necessarily adopted at face value.
But I'm retired, so anything I say may be old news.
